Well it says table service and they don't???? Once we went to the bar they thought we were stupid to expect table service. Food was like warm and tasteless. I ordered a draft cider and they put ice in it?

Filthy tables. Glacial service. Dry, unappetizing food. Little, if anything, to recommend this place. No wonder it doesn’t appear on TripAdvisor. It’s in hiding!

Excellent cocktails 2-1. We did have food here nachos and a sharing platter which were both very nice. We've been a few times here mainly for cocktails and everything has always been brilliant. Definitely recommend.
