Went there last night. The door staff were lovely, but it went downhill from then! The atmosphere wasn't bad but the bar staff were slow and often seemed out of their depth (two of us were asked if we wanted our meals rare, medium or well done- we were having pork and fish!) The menu looked amazing but food is overpriced and portions small. You definitely need at least two courses. "Slow cooked pork belly, seared scallop, roasted celeriac and squash, sautéed peas and mushrooms, port jus" for £15 sounded tempting but while the pork portion was decent there was approximately a tablespoon each of the other components. No exaggeration, the veg were cut into small dice. It tasted good, granted, but the pork was excessively chewy and sadly had no crackling. It was also served on a slate. A SLATE. A dish consisting of peas and gravy on a plate with no lip? Suffice to say my skirt is in the washing machine now. The kitchen obviously has decent chefs, so this place needs to stop trying to be cool and just produce good food at a more sensible price.


Went there last night for a bday and was infuriated by how useless the bar staff are. Soooo slow and couldn't work the bar to save themselves - where do they find these morons. This place could make so much more money and provide a better experience if they hired some decent, functioning, human beings :)


I really like it here. The food is great and the atmosphere is always buzzing. It isn't the cheapest bar in the world but you pay for quality.
