Great place. I loved the falafel burger! I'll come back for sure.
It was quite disappointing compared to usual. Food took a long time to come out. They had also run out of buttermilk fired chicken so charged extra for chicken breast on some of the burgers. This was a bit outrageous considering it wasn't our fault that they had ran out. We shouldn't have had to pay for an alternative. We also got completely ignored once we finished our food and we were never given a bill. We just had to go up to the bar and pay seperarly. My student fosclunt wasn't added and by this point had just given up!
We loved the relaxed atmosphere and attentive staff. We booked as we had an itison voucher, the burgers were amazing. We will be back soon.
