Great main courses and service was fine. The apple and berry crumble was disappointing. Chef needs to rethink this option, maybe custard.

Found the food to be very good and with a Cavern Club ticket giving 15% off the food bill, the cost was acceptable.
Only down side was the 10% service charge (optional) added, without notice, to the bill. We asked for it to be removed. If we wish to award exceptional service we leave cash on the table, an amount at our discretion.

Service was great by waitress and couldn’t do enough for us. The menu was limited so I ordered the fish and the batter was over cooked, this was returned and second attempt was better but still not the best. Also asked for normal peas instead of mushy and you did not have these!

Loved it here. The food was absolutely delicious. Really lovely atmosphere. What was outstanding though was the service from the waitresses. They looked after us and were all so lovely. Checking on us all the time. Absolutely ideal place to visit before going into the Cavern to watch a band. Definitely be back.

Booked last minute as other restaurant had to cancel due to kitchen not working.
Had to find an alternative quickly and pleasantly surprised!
Food was good, I enjoyed the salmon but apparently the chicken my friends had was a little dry but atmosphere was good and welcoming.
Service was also good and in the hub of all the nightlife in Matthew street.

Booking was easy and the place had a lovely atmosphere. Food was great and came quickly. The only downsides were that I put a special request in on my online order but it was not noted and also when we went to get the bill we had to wait 20 minutes after asking 2 times. Eventually we went to bar to pay so that we could leave.

The one course we had was delicious. However, our starter never arrived and neither did our dessert which we chased many times over an incredible 1.5 hour wait. He manager Marcos had his head in his hands when he realised that we had still not had the dessert.. it was madness……

We were told by the manager that they were having teething problems with the new menu. It was. Little more than that!!

Such a shame as the main course we had was delicious… never again !! Too many places to eat at to return to the scene of a train crash ….
