Everything was pretty good to be homest. Only issue if it is an issue is that the gravy was a little watery and was slighlty expensive. But was still worth it. No complaints from me and the group i was with

Lovely environment, lovely staff (bar and waitress were lovely!) food wasn’t good at all:( definitely must have got unlucky because all reviews are sooo good! Ordered a papaya salad. Got a side salad so I told the waitress who took it back and returned with chicken on a big bowl of shredded cabbage, no lettuce, no dressing, just cabbage :( For £12 it just wasn’t good at all. Definitely not one to complain but we won’t be back for food. Drinks and overall vibe however were really great!
