The food was fine but didn't blow us away. The staff were very friendly and catered for gluten allergy well. May go again and try different dishes.

Good food especially if you are coeliac. Ambience average and in need of refurb. Staff helpful and very polite. Worth a visit if in the area

I booked this based on reviews, for a meal for 10 before the London marathon. I was very disappointed. Service was very haphazard, nine of our meals were nearly finished before the 10th meal was served and the staff weren't bothered and did not apologise.

Visit was quite disappointing after all the good reviews on TripAdvisor. Risotto had chillis and pancake was over cooked and glued to the plate. Coffee was nice!
