Been here on numerous occasions, never disappointed. We must have got them on a bad day today. No hearing so the restaurant was very cold, food ok. Boar burger was very nice. Tapas just ok. Lemon cheesecake not good, it had a topping that resembled a melted haribo. Will give them the benefit of having an off day so I... More

The man (who I can only presume was the bar manager) was beyond rude and childish! I was actually taken aback when myself and a work colleague wanted to pay for our bottle of overpriced wine separately due to convenience as we were in a large works party. The reaction we got was very unprofessional and left us flabbergasted. His... More

Three friends ate here on a Thursday night. We had cheesy garlic bread, two tapas and two pizzas. All the food was good, fresh and tasty. A bit slow between courses but otherwise very nice. I would definitely recommend if you want good food and a relaxed place to eat.

Visited on a Saturday night and had a selection of tapas which was superb. Friendly staff and quick service even though it was busy. A little noisy on the evening we visited but still an enjoyable evening.

We went here on the off chance. We asked to eat upstairs and were told that the air con wasn't working so it might be a bit warm. Not a brilliant start but we decided to go ahead anyway as the place was really nice. The menu was a bit different, a little bit complicated as they had some meal... More

I came here with my partner and we enjoyed the burgers and wine. There was a mix up with one of the burgers which caused quite a delay to my partner receiving the food but the staff were very apologetic and gave us a free drink and removed his burger from the bill. Staff here are great.
