    Service was better than I've received in any restaurant as far back as I can remember!
    The food was great, my partner did get ill from the fish but I believe this is because he's recently found out he has some sort of allergy.
    The cocktails were that amazing I actually took pictures, something I normally tell others off for. "

    I had the misfortune of being brought to this restaurant on my hen weekend. I was really looking forward to the food as the drink that i had ordered (spicy tomato juice) was divine (like a virgin Mary) and i expected that to set the tone for the rest of the meal. Unfortunately, what followed was a cascade of culinary nightmares. The chicken wings were tasteless and the thai chicken curry was just awful (imagine boiled rice swimming in a sea of yucky, watery curry with a bit of chilli and the sweet taste of tomatoes, coriander)! It has got to be the worst Thai curry i have ever tasted. My friend ordered the goats cheese, which arrived cold and not char-grilled (she had to ask for this to be done twice, and even then it was mediocre). Would definitely not recommend!! "
