The food was great, the Stein was a little over priced at £10 however it was a special brew by the looks of things so maybe a little picky 😉

Had a great time in current restrictions, food, cocktails were very good. However, we were only allowed to stay for 1 hour 45 mins - customers should have the option when booking to extend their stay at the table. We would have stayed all night drinking cocktails but got chucked out. Did get advice about where to try though by the manager so that was good.

Great, speedy and friendly service. Menu a bit limited for my picky taste but still found something delish!

A little pricey but as a treat, well worth it. Highly recommend!

Lovely place, and so nice. We visited it with our dog and they gave her water and some treats.
The food was amazing - the popcorn haggis were particularly delicious!
And the rest, very very good!

This is not a good venue for people with allergies. Mentioned nut allergy when booking and was told it would be fine but when we arrived we were told that only a few things on the menu were okay to eat. The food wasn't very good, even though the meals were simple and quite expensive. Staff were good, very friendly and accommodating. The venue was clean and well decorated. Would go back for drinks but wouldn't eat here again.

Firstly we asked for the nachos without guacamole as they can't eat it, but this was not passed to the kitchen so a second one had to be made. They did apologise for this and it was fairly quick. But the chilli on them wasn't very good. One of the waitresses was more concerned with talking to someone sitting at another table, who I believe also worked there. However he wasn't wearing a mask as sat down, but they weren't social distancing. And the other waitress wasn't much better. Overall the food was fine but won't be in a rush to go back.

The Place isn’t really equipped fo having more than 2 hot desks as there is a lack of plug sockets available and the WiFi is very slow. We had to move tables 3 times in order to seek better WiFi and also in search of a free plug socket. Reducing the time you spend working. Food was great and the service and unlimited drinks was good, but wouldn’t really go there again to use this service.

The venue was lovely and we had high hopes for our meal. Service was great and staff very friendly and helpful.
Unfortunately the food let it down. Cauliflower starter was soggy and inedible. The loaded fries were a disappointment. There was nothing loaded about then a few bits of dry shredded pork on top if a bowl of fries.
The concept of this place is good however the execution needs work.

Everything was brilliant - only thing was that when we asked for a few more minutes to decide on our order, we were left quite a long time and had to catch a passing server. But it was busy and the food was amazing, the servers were really friendly and it was a lovely night.
