Venue is a little gem. Great decor and massive.
Cocktails were nice. Reasonable choice.
However the food isn’t as great.
For the price you pay for the food we all agreed we had had better.
The steaks were tasteless which was a real shame. The zebra was a bit better.
Service was ok. Staff were friendly and answered all questions.

If you want a fun looking venue with a story behind it then great.
If you are a foodie, there are plenty more places you’ll get better for the same value I’m afraid.
We actually left to another restaurant straight from here which was amusing but also disappointing as wasn’t the original plan and had been really excited about the meal.
:-(

The restaurant/ bar is lovely and decorated very well. Didn’t like the fact that we had the warrior menu which is £40 and had to pay £5 on top for sides. There were only 5 mains on the menu and two of these had a £7.50 supplement. The deal was also supposed to give us entry into Kings club, but my party were refused entry. It was pretty empty for a Friday night. Don’t feel the need to go back. The expensive non alcoholic cocktails had way too much lemon juice in them and had so much ice included that they weren’t good value at all

Gift purchased dinner for 2. We added 2 sides and water to the prepaid discounted gift. however the service charge was added to the full value of the meal plus the sides. So instead of having a bill for £14 we were charged over £20. Example the value of the meal was £50. But purchased for £34 on a gift site. Plus £14 ordered on the day. The restaurant charged the service charge against £64 which is a cheek. At the most it should have been charged again £48 or just the extras we ordered. Thought this was a little greedy therefore removed the service charge all together. Dinner was ok. Had the chicken. Best part of the meal was the cheesecake and the cocktails

What a huge place! Loved the decor and atmosphere. Food very nice and very quick service, if a little rushed.

Visited today shocked by service levels took an age to be given drinks. Food arrived poor quality and portions sizes an absolute joke. Chicken was so dry and tasted like cardboard. Wine £30 a bottle and cheese and biscuits an absolute joke 2 crackers and three small squares of cheese. Better value street food outside thankfully left disappointed and hungry would definitely not recommend or return. Stunning surrounding let down by staff and food. And the place stinks.
