Booked the steak offer on Groupon didn't really need to as they're are lots of offers on anyway. We both upgraded to fillets- they were amazing. Presented well, cooked well. Tried the parma violet gin it was delicious. Owner really looked after us and gave us lots of gin tips and a free bottle of flavoured mixer. Really recommend this place. Would like to try an evening meal next time. Many thanks

I don’t normally bother writing reviews, I am not normally that bothered if a place isn’t great. But the amount of reviews on here must be made up. Don’t be fooled. This was the worst place I’ve eaten in. Here’s why. You were warned...

We booked it via groupon so had already paid. If I hadn’t I’d have walked out before sitting down. The owner I’m
Guessing told us she couldn’t accept groupons that wasn’t printed out, though I had the screenshot of the code. She reluctantly accepted it. She then gave us a tiny drop of wine in a massive wine glass, both glasses were dirty so had to swap. Her customer service skills were terrible, she was arguing on the phone in between serving. I ordered nachos. Worst I’ve ever had, 4 with some cheese and the 3 sauces. No jalapeño or anything else it said. Chicken strips looked iffy so didn’t finish them.

Mains where steak, was cold and mostly fat. Chips were ok. Salad was grim too. She also charged me twice for peppercorn sauce.

Place was dark, no atmosphere and scatty. I’d have walked if I had not already paid through groupon. Only positive is the food was quick. The owner obviously doesn’t want to be there, the chief isn’t a chief, so what’s the point. Be a bar instead. Your welcome.

Thanks for the review Bryan nice of you to leave one in such detail after saying all was nice whilst you were here would have been better to give the chance for your issues to be rectified by the CHEF the reason you was asked to print the voucher off was explained to you when you phoned earlier to book your table although you did insist that you wasn't asked but never mind slight misunderstanding so just to clarify you was asked to print it off because a phone had been damaged previously and we no longer accept responsibility for your property I guess the best bit is the made up reviews lol for the iffy chicken you didn't finish it took you to eat 4 and a half of the 5 to notice this and the menu asks you to choose if you want jalapeños or not but maybe you missed that too thanks again wish you well
