We popped in to have a drink, ended up staying for a meal. Staff, atmosphere and food all exceeded our expectations. Can highly recommend and will return for more. Also the suggestion of disarono, cranberry and fresh lime was inspired and brought home.

Came in on 2 separate occasions, served by Ami on both visits! She was lovely and smiley, after long tattoo sessions and being really hungry and tired she was really helpful and made me feel very welcome, thanks again!
