On Sundays, there’s a roast menu featuring roast chicken and glazed maple carrots, honey glazed pork belly, and a mushroom and pearl barley wellington for vegetarians. And for live music lovers? Swing on by regularly for the sound of live musicians and the charming hum of an acoustic guitar. The room for our group of nine was wonderfully adorned. The staff was attentive, accommodating numerous sensitivities, and were informed, polite, and efficient! The cuisine was exceptional, especially the pig belly kebab, the drinks were beautiful (try the rose and rhubarb), and the music, ambiance, and staff excitement created a dynamic, joyful vibe. Thank you very much for your assistance in making our celebrations a success!
Yet again, an excellent meal. We chose a hot board to share and the fish, chips, chicken, and chorizo hanging kebab for mains. All come beautifully presented and piping hot. There’s always a great atmosphere here; by 1 pm, it was jam-packed. The staff work so hard and are friendly and efficient. The food was incredible; we had so many more drinks (all so good) and ended up sitting outside between 10 pm-1 am. Service was flawless from everyone, the tunes were great (live music, too), and the food and drink were of such a high standard. I think we’re going back before we head home for more drinks. It was just that good. There aren’t many restaurants that you can say are beautiful, there’s always a great atmosphere & the menu is so original too – the hanging kebabs are a winner! All the staff are always so lovely & seem to love working there.
