Buzzing atmosphere for a Sunday! Nice comfortable setting. Good food and the staff are so attentive! A very positive experience! It's nice to be able to see into the kitchen also!

This was not a satisfactory experience. We walked into the restaurant at 18.25 and were advised that the table was needed back at 19.30. We agreed that this was reasonable as we didn't want to delay. We had fishcakes to start which were nice and tasty. We both opted for fish for main course.One main course had far too much sauce. The vegetables were a bit hard and the courses could have been hotter in general. We asked for more potatoes and the waiter made a face. We then had our plates cleared and were asked for dessert orders immediately. We got our desserts at 18.55 and decided to take a breather as we had rushed through the first 2 courses. The waitress obviously noticed this and, rudely, came over to the table and told us that she needed the table back by 19.15. We were shocked. We had our desserts and paid the bill. This experience left a bitter taste in the mouth and neither of us will be back, The toilets are also very small. The staff need to work on their communication skills.
