Lovely time had by all, although they were lacking in choice of scones and sandwiches. Service was great although a little slow at times. Would definitely rebook.

Awful, awful, awful!! Put us by a pillar, asked to be moved (which they did). Sandwiches made with margarine and soggy cucumber, slice of cheese and a bit of egg. Some of the little cakes and the tea ok, cheap prosecco and a door stop of a scone which weighed a ton and tasted like it.

Service was appalling our table that we had booked was not reserved and they knew nothing about us and the waitress spoke very little English and came a cross as bored no smiles not helpful at all , the food and cocktails were fantastic though but will not go again it was for a 40th birthday surprise very disappointed with our evening

Venue ok, seating very uncomfortable and it’s very dark , you can’t see the menus! Staff were surly and appeared bored. Cocktails were great and a good choice and the platters were delicious! Had to pay £4 surcharge for the mini burgers as they are not included. Bit cheeky as they are only £2 more than the other platters! Good groupon and worth the money, despite the negatives.

Nice relax atmosphere. Great selection of cocktails and generous platters in the deal -so much so 2 platters filled us up between 3. Stayed as long as we wanted to and staff were lovely. Superb value for money.

Do not book for 6pm or you will be told you can’t use it, as they stop serving at 6pm afternoon tea... only after complaining that it had allowed me to book this time online, we then witnessed the manager have an argument with the chef about if I can use it or not. They finally agreed we could but I was made to feel I should be privileged about that fact. It’s very loud in the restaurant, we could barely hear ourselves and service was poor. The food was nothing special and I certainly would never return. This was a special treat for myself and my 2 friends and was completely ruined. Spend your money elsewhere!

Bad and rude service from a waitress who could barely speak English (not her fault re the English) and her boss a supervisor. Arrived at venue showed groupon code asked what we could order with our deals was pointed to the cocktails and sharing platters and ordered them. After consuming one cocktail each and all the sharing platters we were informed we had to pay an extra £4 each as two of the sharing platters wasn’t included. I have never before encountered someone quite as rude and lacking in customer skills than the supervisor who tried to argue with me. She spoiled an evening out with my partner. Only when I refused to pay the extra and leave owing them money for the third cocktails things did calm down. She actually tried to say I should have calculated the cost of the platters etc against the value of my groupon vouchers. Never been asked to do that on a groupon deal or when in a proper restaurant. The cocktails also tasted as if they were watered down. Have been here before and not been treated so rudely but with the current staff I won’t return. Currently complaining to groupon about this appalling service. Also happened to others but only after I saw their reviews. Avoid like the plague.
