Unfortunately we had quite a bad experience, I booked a table and asked for a good view of the rugby to watch the match on Saturday. Upon arrival we found out there was no TV sound and you had to hire wireless headphones, unfortunately half the headphones they had for hire didn't work !! We ended up leaving an hour after our arrival.
Great location but very chaotic. limited menu is fine and came knowing that but had run out of 2 dishes including vegetarian. No tea at all, no orange juice. Apologetic and friendly staff but clearly a management issue and not a problem solver approach.
We had to wait half hour until somebody actually took our order after we went at waited at the bar and we didn't get napkins or cutlery - had to go grab them. The food was tasteless and the tea was served in anplastig jug so you would spill all the hot tea on the table each time you poured it in the glass. They had no souce, ketchup - had to go ask 2 digferent waiters to get some mustard... All in all, nothing was right!
