    We had a few drinks at the bar prior to our dinner as we were there earlier... Guinness wasn't as cold however the raspberry mojito was lovely. Staff are really nice and helpful... Food was tasty however the side was very salty. We got a complimentary little cake for a birthday celebration with I thought was a really nice gesture. The chocolate bomb is very sweet! There is a service charge. We were charged different prices for the same white wine we got...

    Very closely packed for lunch with areas not used maybe staff shortages? Fish cake was good, my companion was disappointed with the Shepherds Pie not as good as previous occasions.

    Everything was lovely, the food, the service and overall experience except we felt we were being rushed out at the end, a member of staff came to our table twice and asked us to leave our table whilst we still had drinks including a hot pot of tea, this kinda put a dampener on our visit there, I’ve been there 3 times before and never experienced this, I understand the restaurant is busy but it does give a bad impression when something like this happens and the same thing happened to my friend who was there last weekend, nobody likes to feel rushed after having a 3 course lunch and drinks, a bit disappointed to be honest

    Food was delicious .I had a lovely time .The receptionist was a little pushy to go straight to the table when I just wanted to go over to friends that were at the bar to say hello I was told no straight to your table.I laughed afterwards about it but thought it was little uncalled for telling me what I can and can’t do

    Food was delicious but limited lunch choice for vegetarians... no vegetarian salads?!! Few light bites too. disagree with the level of service charge added on to the bill at the end. I personally think it's a bit cheeky, tips / service charge should be discretionary and certainly not 25% of the bill! Spoilt it a bit to be honest. Probably won't go back for that reason, it wouldn't be so bad if they were up front about it but to put it on the receipted. bill at the end when they bring the card machine gives the customer very little choice but to pay it.

    The service was excellent 1st class our waiter was very attentive and quick with a pleasant personality - the menu has changed and not for the better. Not a fan of pea and nettle soup. There used to be cauliflower soup on the menu it was so much better. Also there was chicken breast on the bone which was very healthy and tasty it has gone. Also a shared side of beef for two people it has been removed from the menu. If the menu was better I would have given it 5 stars -

    It wasn't very welcoming except one member of staff but unfortunatelyhe didn'tstay with us. We were told it was fully booked and then went on OpenTable to find lots of availability. Arrived and had an uncomfortable drink by the bar. But most of all it was awkward with the waiter, and food portions were tiny. Tasty food, but just bad value. Won't go back myself but can see why girls like it for photos as the place looks great. We didn't get the experience we paid for.

    Food was gorgeous but service was absolutely horrific. They were late getting us to our table despite a reservation, which usually I wouldn't mind, but once they'd cleared our plates we were rushed to vacate our table to cater to the next booking. We had received one drink during the duration of our visit and never offered to order another, my attempts to catch the attention of waiting staff ignored. After ordering our food we were only approached once to inform us they'd need the table back. Wouldn't recommend.
