The food is really fantastic here. Prices are reasonable considering the quality put in the products and the cooking.

However there are a few caveats that annoyed me:

- you can end up being really badly seated if you're on the high tables.

- their waiting system can send you a text message when the table is ready (more than 1 hour wait on weekends), but it only works with UK numbers, which is...more

3. EVERYTHING is very...more

Welcome - 5/5 - Nice friendly welcome, offering to take our coats if we wanted.

Atmosphere - 4/5 - It's quite a small place. We got there as soon as it opened, quiet to start but was buzzing a lively once it filled up.

Cleanliness/Decor - 4/5 - Very clean. Simple decor. Tables of two that could be pushed together to make larger tables, a table with high chairs also. Was a bit tight trying to...more
