We were a group of 12 and I cannot fault the service and the food. This was a great night and our guests loved it. Thank you.

Really enjoy the feel of this bar/restaurant. Great for meeting friends for a drink, great menu. The food is yummy and the service prompt despite the fact that the times I have been there it is full. Returning custom, must be a recommendation!!
