Love the ambiance & food but rather surprised they couldn't offer us decaffeinated coffee. Sticky toffee pudding a particular favourite. On main course not so keen on purple potatoes

Poor service, people were not greeted with a smile, staff looked really unhappy, we sat at our table for half a hour not one person came to see if we needed drinks or ready to order, even though we was not given menus, we had to get our own menus. Food was not up to much, our steaks were very fatty and food was very greasy. I was very disappointed was expecting more after the great reviews and recommendations.
