    The place is gorgeous and staff were kind and fast. Music was too loud, maybe they could only turn up the volume when kitchen is closed, the music was good tough. Nice place for cocktails with friends Food was not bad, but not that different from the fast food we can find in the street. I would go back only for a late drinks

    Waited one and a half hours to get our food and got told that the waiter forgot to put the order in. The Bruschetta had no flavour and neither had the pizza. Only good thing was the cider and that the pizza got taken off the bill. Will not return.

    Been here on a number of occasions and once again does not disappoint. Met up with an old work mate from before covid and had an absolute ball. The ambience is a vibe and so are the staff. Such friendly and charismatic workers! Don’t even get me started on the cocktails! Love coming here any chance I get. They have such an amazing cocktail list with new cocktails every now and again 😍 we went on a Monday and there was a promotion on Jameson and Ginger Ale which topped off the night with some games and freebies. Don’t think I’ll ever have a complaint about this place!

    Food was quite good. Service however was not good. We were ignored by several staff members when we wanted to order. Had to specifically ask to even order our drinks. Waitresses were rude and nearly threw our dips at us when we mentioned we didn’t receive them. Music was too loud also.

    Excellent food and ambiance - quite noisy but we enjoyed the buzz (but something to keep in mind if you don't like loud places). The service was great and they were really friendly although unfortunately they messed up our bill a few times at the end. I'd still go back as the food was great and it's in a perfect location

    The food is gorgeous aswell as the cocktails, really cool vibe and decor. only thing that brought it down was how slow service was. waiting ages for a dessert menu and then for someone to take the order and then again to try and get the bill. otherwise a great place for food and cool vibes.

    We were brought to our table and given menus. The prices are a bit overpriced for what’s on the menu but so are most places near the green. We were ignored by the waiting staff for 20 minutes and nobody even took our drinks orders
