Heard a lot about this place so decided to go for with another couple. Lovely food but a bit pricey, overpriced drinks, nice surroundings. Meat is better than the chicken shish in my opinion. Overall a nice experience but one that you wouldn't do often.

Have visited several times and the food is always of a high quality and service is of a high level. Lovely decor and lively atmosphere highly recommended however a little expensive but you get what you pay for.

I would recommend a visit just to actually experience this place, it really is something else. Everything about it is bizarre. You can become a member and have your car parked. I would hasten to add the car park is a pub car park, not...More

the food pricrs range but none of the mains are over £30 and are large portions so you wont need starters. if you are going to try and go and not spend too much dont drink there. the drink prices are a joke, very expensive.
