Guys keep up the great work food was amazing and the staff were very friendly so no complaints at all
Very poor overall. We made a booking several weeks in advance, requesting a table on the side of the restaurant where the booth type seat is located as I have a back injury and this seat is better for it. We arrived and were unable to sit there . We were seated right in the middle of the restaurant where we could barely hear each other and everyone was constantly walking past. The waitress took forever to even approach us to take drink orders so by this point we just decided to cut our losses and get a takeaway order. We had driven a bit over an hour from Stroud to come here for an early Valentines dinner due to work commitments on Valentines Day. Very disappointing. The food was pretty good, though I’m glad we checked the order before leaving as they gave us “bruschetta” without any bread initially. Food would have been worth the more expensive price tag but overall we feel it was not worth the price as it was a very poor experience. We won’t be returning.
It was very busy but the service was still very fast and efficient!! Food was amazing
