    This was a horrible experience I'm afraid. I had such high hopes but everything went wrong. I booked this place in advance and foolishly booked the bar for myself and three friends on Saturday. We arrived to deafeningly loud music and a horrible table right by the door. Hoped that the food might make things better but it didn't. Took a long time to get served, and when the food arrived it was clear that the KFC burger had been sitting under a grill for many hours. The chicken was tough and the batter was practically charred. The chips were good but the waitress was so fast in her delivery she literally plonked it on the table and said 'ye good?' without giving us two seconds to check whether we had everything. I wanted ketchup for my chips but couldnt get out of my awkward seat (that weird table again) to access the bar to ask for it or try to get a waitresses attention. So i nicked some sour cream from my pal.....other food was okay but my friends pork belly popcorn was also overcooked, really not good for a Saturday night. I asked them to turn down the music a little bit so i could actually hear my friends talking, and they said they would but didn't. The abysmal choons themselves did improve after a while though. When food was finished, I considered querying whether i should pay for my chicken as it was so overcooked. I didn't bother as I could see the staff were young and genuinely nice, but too rushed and understaffed. I then ordered a beer and they completely forgot to bring it to me. Pretty annoying. I never complain anywhere and love to give somewhere a chance, so in good faith we actually four of us went to the bar to pay, and left a tip which was wholly undeserved. My friends asked me, as it was my birthday, whether they think we should, and I said yes, cos we are nice people. My friend had a good lunch in the quiet restaurant part in the back a few weeks ago but our experience was a disaster. i believe this was a particularly bad night for this place.

    Food was lovely. We went for the all you can eat wings challenge and they gave us 2 bowls of chicken wings in an hour and a half. You only get two hours for the challenge

    Starters took an hour to come & place didn’t seem overly busy. Then they were giving me 2 portions of the one dish I asked for-needless to say I sent it back as I wouldn’t eat it but was then charged for the 2nd portion. I pointed this out to the waitress & it wasn’t an issue to take it off the bill. The food was nice though & good cocktails
