Service with a smile. All staff serving us really seemed like they were happy to be there :) thank you
Meatfeast pizza was delicious and cheesy! Worth having every bite
Really nice place to eat, great service and dog friendly too! Would definitely recommend.
Very good frendly helpful staff. Great quirky decor. Will return.
The venue looks the part. However I walked in. It was practically empty, several members of staff stood huddled around the end of the bar. There was an awkward couple of minutes that nobody asked if they could help. I was eventually advised to sit anywhere as it was quiet (there was a table of 4, and a small handful of others). The staff were nice but service was very slow. It took a long time to bring our toddlers starter, the mains didn’t come out together, my main was wrong and had to be sent back. Then my main was prioritised and so I had to sit whilst the others eat. Eventually it came but I had to eat alone and by this point we had been in there for nearly 2 hours which is ridiculous when it was so empty and it’s pub food. The waiting on staff were great and we did receive a discount but you’d rather just have good service and eat together. It was clearly a kitchen problem.
I must begin with a positive - the manager was very professional and dealt with issues quickly and effectively. I went to the bar when we arrived, and the girl behind the bar said we could sit down and someone would come and take our drinks order at the table. This didn’t happen, so once we had chosen what we would eat, I went to order at the bar. When the food eventually came (slightly over an hour after we arrived at the establishment) everything arrived together, not starter then main. It turns out that this is the style in this restaurant, and is mentioned on the menu. We didn’t notice this, and it wasn’t explained when we ordered. The food was mixed... Gambas Pil Pil - very tasty Vegan Chilli - extremely bland Thick Hand Cut Chips - good, although some of the larger potatoes were a little hard in the middle Burrata - Very worryingly, the cheese was actually off. Lucky, as it’s a less common menu item, I know what it should tasty like, and so knew immediately that it was off. I gave it to a passing waitress, and she took it away. A while after we had finished eating, a gentleman who I suspected might be the manager came to clear the table. I raised my concerns, and he suggested removing the burrata dish and giving us a further discount. Overall, a disappointing experience, but I have given a 2/6 rather than a 1/6 thanks to the manager’s professionalism.
Very nice ladies serving . Enjoyed the food ..Desert was that I went to find the lady after waiting for a bit for us to be able to order our deserts . However at the beginning when we went their the ladies were their for us. Great food and drinks . Nice place and idea of the potting shed.
The food was very disappointing. Ordered a lamb kofta kebab and one of them was burnt so had to be sent back, the other food was very mediocre. Ordered chicken Caesar salad with extra chicken and only received 4 small cubes, Only good thing was the fact that we used a tastecard so received food for half the price, it would definitely not have been worth paying full price I went thee at beginning of the year and the food was fantastic at that time, so really noticed the difference
It was a great atmosphere, the staff are all really friendly and helpful. The food was lovely, especially the duck pizza. We can’t wsit to try out the garden terrace with the open rooftop on a sunny day, unfortunately it was raining when we went.
Really enjoyed our family meal, food great and exceptional service. We will definitely be coming again. May also bring our dog now we know dogs are allowed in also until 9pm :-) Nice atmosphere with a live band on a Sunday afternoon.
