The living room has very nice decor and great food, but we had a girls get together in the evening it was lacking atmosphere (dead), for a Friday night evening. Therefore we ate and moved on elsewhere I don't know what the atmosphere is like Saturday or lunch times????

My friends and I who were celebrating my 40th birthday, really liked the living room it had a great atmosphere, amazing food and really nice cocktails. We stayed for 4 hour eating and drinking and didn't feel rushed which was lovely, what more could four ladies who are mum's want

Thank you leanne

When we got to the restaurant, there was no record of the Open Table booking, despite me having the email confirmation with me. Fortunately, they had a table. it was excellent but wouldnt use Open table again - too risky.

I enjoyed the experience here at the Living Room. Food was good. Cocktails was amazing and the Bartender was hospitable and friendly. The only downfall was I along with my friend who visited from London would have appreciated to be greeted and taken to our reserved dining table. But we did make the Bartender aware and he was professional and polite and greeted us and made us feel comfortable.

 (London)·Dined on 20 May 2017

At our visit the venue was under staffed therefore service slow and having to wait a couple of times with no drinks. The staff were friendly and polite and and it was not the individuals fault for poor waitress service. Food all came out at different times and one starter was forgotten as was one of the sides with the main course.

I requested a quiet area and we were seated upstairs, the decor and ambience was top notch as was the Service. Early bird drinks offer would have made it more appealing to stay after the meal but overall a very nice experience.

 (Lancashire)·Dined on 15 April 2017

The resteraunt is upstairs which has recently been renovated to a really high standard . The food is good we ordered steaks which were vert nice the only gripe I had there was I asked for the steak to be medium well just slightly pink but it wasnt it was overkooked . The main complaint though was it being my husbands birthday when we arrived one of the waiters said at the end of the meal they were going to bring a small cake out with sparklers on which would have been really nice. But sadly no cake arrived. I was very disappointed because the resteraunt was not that busy so you really couldn't say they had an excuse just other than forgetting. Would I visit here again? Probably not

The Living Room is great in the evening if you are with a group of friends, we went at 9:30 on a Saturday night and although we were upstairs away from the bar it was still very loud, to be fair we knew what it would be like. Eaten at lunchtime many times which is more relaxed. The food was good and service alright, depends what you're looking for really. Good venue for reasonably priced food in a vibrant bar/restaurant.

We were sat basically on top of the speakers, my friends and I like music but if we were eating it wouldn't have been a good table chat on as we couldn't her each other and the seat actually vibrated!!!!
It was good to have table service but the girls asked us repeatedly what we wanted presumably because they couldn't hear us either!
I wouldn't eat there after this experience, it's a good bar for a drink but that table is terribly positioned with regards to the speaker.

We all chose burgers which were delicious. Would definitely return. Would be nice to have drinks at the very spacious and elegant bar downstairs.
