I visited this restaurant 3 times in a week with a group of friends. The meals were fantastic and the atmosphere very friendly. Gillian, our waitress, was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and she joked and laughed with us. Highly recommend the No4.

Love this place! Went for afternoon patio beers on a Sunday and really enjoyed the live music. Had a lovely Canadian server (think her name was Gillian) who was just fantastic. Would definitely recommend. Will be back.More
