It is a small venue which has a potential for a good atmosphere, but unfortunately the man in charge (I am guessing he is the owner) is absolutely rude and lacks customer service skills. The menu displayed on the window does not apply and any food is served on the night - but is hard to find out what it is. The waitress does not know and is unable to explain, and the owner feels too 'important' to do it himself (uhh...). Unless you drink alcohol, don't you 'dare' to enter this venue, as you will be made to feel so uncomfortable, that you will have no option but to leave. So if you are looking for a good night out, don't bother with this ...hole. There are nicer places around (and close by) where you can spend your 'hard earned' money, enjoy good food and listen to good jazz!


The concept and menu of this place sounded amazing. Unfortunately the execution is very poor. Upon arriving for dinner my friends and I were told we could not sit inside (it didn't even look like there was an inside!) and we could take a seat at one of their rather grotty looking outside table and chairs. At that point we were left to it for a good 20 mins before we had to ask for a dinner/ drinks menu. We were given a drinks menu but no food menu. We ordered 2 cocktails which took another 30 minutes to get and had a pan of bread dropped in front of us. We didn't bother asking again for the food menu- the service was so slow and so unfriendly that we went on elsewhere. I left a couple of quid for the bread but my friends didn't even think it was worth that...this place needs to revise what they're trying to achieve but I can't say I'd ever return- very disappointing!
