    Very much enjoyed my night here. Food was delicious, service was exceptional - swift and friendly, great tunes - both from the speakers and the live band. Great vibe to the place in general. Had a ticket to the event upstairs seeing Olivia Cuttill Quintet playing Miles Davis which was brilliant! I was mainly interested in the whiskys but the whole drinks menu looked pretty decent. Wide selection of bourbons, ryes and wine. A few of the good single malts which is my go-to. And the burnt-pear old-fashioned was very tasty. Looking forward to going back for some more music and to try some more of the menu.

    Service was very attentive and friendly. Food served promptly and was all hot, retained its heat. Tasted freshly cooked. Personally I found the general noise levels excessive, along with the purely drinking customers area being adjacent to the diners area. Think it could be designed better re layout, maybe noise reduction partitions to separate the dining area from the purely drinkers area. Had to walk through the drinkers area to get to be seated for dining I struggled to hear most things my adult daughter said to me during our meal, just sitting across the table from her, so conversation was really hard work, and far from a relaxing time. Overall it felt like a slightly upmarket Wetherspoons..The lighting in the ladies toilets was at a very low level, could do with it being slightly brighter..

    As expected the food was reasonable and the ambience fine. Service was good although not very well informed about food enquiries.

    Absolutely brilliant experience on the food and service the only thing that got both myself and partner was the 50p service charge for each drink we had, we later found out this was for the band that was on. I know it’s only 50p but when you have 6-7 drinks each it adds up.

    The starters were tasty. Mains were average and fries were poor quality. Salad was fresh. The waiting staff were excellent. It was dark and noisy which they explained was due to the night being cheaper for cocktails. Despite having booked our table it wasn't ready at the time given and there was nowhere comfortable to wait as the bar area was packed.

    Amazing!! We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary and were treated like royalty. Every member of staff congratulated us and we were given free Prosecco. The food was outstanding! We had a sharing short ribs platter. Cocktails and beer were excellent. Funky vibe but didn’t feel out of place. Friendly staff and atmosphere. Excellent singer later on. Definitely will return 👍🏾😘
