    Ambience and place was amazing, staff also amazing and very helpful but the food was so disappointing. Most of us ordered the steak, it was tough, thin and small. No salad at all with it except for half a baby tomato. Most desserts were good except for one. Would go again for drinks and maybe finger food but unfortunately not for a meal.

    We have eaten here before but found this experience to be a let down overall. The restaurant service was poor as we felt they were rushing us by removing drinks that were unfinished and generally hanging about waiting to offer the dessert menu as fast as possible. They presented a special menu supplement and then said most items weren’t available,I also felt the menu available was very limited.Food was ok for some of us but one ordered Lamb and had to give it back as it was like leather ( maybe lying there all day ) she received another and it was the same. It was not edible. Bar staff were very nice and efficient but overall a mediocre experience at best.

    Food choices on menu looked appealing. We just had mains- chicken Kiev which was sizeable itself, but came on a small spoon of mash and the plate then was littered in sugar snap peas. Overall small portion. The other order was Korean chicken which was effectively chilli chicken tenders, these were tough to cut through. The place itself is amazing, great atmosphere. If I was going back it would be just for drinks
