A really nice, cosy restaurant with great food and friendly service. I had the pork belly main - crackling was cracking. My girlfriend had the steak which was cooked to perfection. Definitely worth the visit and the price wasn’t bad either

The Good
- friendly staff
- set lunch menu potentially offers value for money

The NOT so Good
- the food across all 3 courses was average at best. There was nothing wrong with it, it was just very forgetful and for that reason even 3 courses for £20 was not good value for money, I might as well got a sandwich from M&S.
- the toilets were below-standard

Would I recommend or go there again - NO.

After viewing the menu online was really impressed and looking forward to try the dishes. But it didn't meet my expectations, the arrancini and my partner's bruschetta were both very bland, main courses which were pork belly and Pan-fried halibut were okay but really overpriced. It wasn't a bad experience just really average and disappointing.

Was there for a dinner. The place is awfully generic, seats quite crammed (forget about much privacy), menu short and uninspired, food ok but overpriced, portions small. It's neither a smart restaurant nor a friendly local bistro, in fact it lacks any character - it's just plain boring. No complaints about the staff though - a very professional bunch they are!
