    Steak was /chewy Halloumi fries were rubbery (overdone/left under a heat lamp too long maybe) Pastrami baggle wasn't what I expected, it had barely any pastrami, it had one slice, from what looks like a sandwich pack. I was sadly very disappointed as I have raved about this place and brought a friend only to be disappointed. The staff was lovely but took too long when bringing brews or water or a straw.

    Food all overcooked and vastly underseasoned. Service slow and it wasn’t particularly busy. Restaurant cold and lacked any ambience… apart from the social media staff making content of a pint and some overcooked chicken wings for an hour! Shame, this place used to be good

    Waitress that served food said she would get us some cutlery and sauces but never returned. Not sure how she forgot so quickly. Nobody came to take our order either, had to order at the bar, and then they tried to make me pay despite me having already said I had a Manchester confidential voucher.

    Booked as part of the Monday 50% off food deal before the theatre. We both got the New York burger which was huge, excellent value with the discount. Lovely bar even just for a drink. Staff friendly. Lots of high tables which aren’t suitable for everyone and if so ask for a standard table. I’m sure we’ll be back.

    Absolutely appalled that on entry we were asked about allergies and when we declared one we were refused service. Even when we explained that allergy was manageable as it was in every other restaurant we have ever visited, they still refused to serve any food or drink. Whilst we know that is your right as a restaurant, it is not indicated on the website or at the point of booking. Poor in the extreme and not even an apology was offered. Others seem able to deal with such matters. Why can’t you?

    we were waiting for our food for quite a while, and when it did come they got our both our food and drinks order wrong, plus didn’t remove wrong items off our bill. We were also asked if we were okay like 2-3 times in about 25 mins after we had finished eating making us feel very rushed and like we had to get out of there asap Food was lovely and atmosphere was great though

    We came for a quick dinner before the theatre and had to cancel our order. It took ages to be served and twice someone said the would be over to take our order and didn’t. We waited 25 minutes for food before having to leave. The staff apologised and gave us our drink for free. This was a fine gesture except I had a £50 voucher from manchester confidential. I now have a voucher which I paid for and no time to use it

    Booked a table for yesterday evening for 4 people. Arrived and seated, when we asked for the food menu, was told they were not serving food due to a large party being in. We were then told our booking had actually been taken into account and we could order food. We asked if there would be a wait for food, after checking with the kitchen the server came back and said that we wouldn't be able to order after all. I have worked in kitchens before so understand the pressure of large bookings. But our booking had been accepted, we got mixed messages upon arrival, we had booked for a specific time as we had other commitments later on, by not being able to eat here we were left looking for somewhere else in a rush. Disappointing!

    Food & drinks were good, we were told there'd be a bit of a wait for food but found it strange they didn't take our food order until it had quietened down after around 30 mins after we sat down. We waited over an hour and a half for food which seemed a little excessive, especially as people who arrived after us were given their food before us.

    I was really looking forward to coming here but left extremely dissapointed. When we arrived we were told there was a 30 minute wait on food. We had booked specifically to get french toast, which we were disappointed to be informed that they didn't have on this day. We ordered around 12, our food didn't arrive until 13:30. During this time we were left without being checked on, or asked to order any more drinks, for over an hour. Eventually, a waitress came over to say our food was next out and asked if we wanted some more drinks. 15 minutes later the food arrived, my scrambled eggs were cold and my partners breakfast arrived without eggs at first, these were brought over a few minutes later. My partner said his breakfast was good, especially the Sausages, but I was extremely disappointed with my cold eggs. The hash browns were good though. We then waited a further 15-20 minutes after finishing our food before we had to ask at the bar for the bill. The staff were friendly enough but not attentive at all. They probably need at least an additional 2-3 serving staff as they were turning a lot of people away who didn't have bookings despite there being empty tables. I really wanted to love it here but probably won't be returning due to the lack of service and cold food.

    The cocktail list here is excellent - and that’s coming from someone who lives in London and is used to being spoiled for choice. The food was good, it just took quite a while to come (they only have a small kitchen). Otherwise it’s a really nice space & we found it very welcoming.

    Booked a table via open table over a week prior to visiting. Table was booked 13.00-15.00. Was advised when we'd sat and ordered drinks that due to a group of 20 having bottomless brunch we could not be guaranteed to eat until at least 14.30. We asked for nibbles but were told everything needed to be cooked and the kitchen was too small to cope. We ended up leaving with no food and not spending our work Xmas budget for the 9 of us. We were given a free bottle of prosecco after asking for something for us to compensate for the disappointment. The staff member told us they were only aware of our booking that morning. Disappointing and will not return. Will spend the budget at another restaurant in the new year.

    Food was nice and service from bar staff was good. But it took 1 hour from ordering food to it arriving on the table. This is no use to people who are on their lunch break from work. The Chef seemed to be outside more than he was in the kitchen. Overall this led to a poor experience/impression.

    Food took an hour to come out when it was only breakfast for two people and the rest of the restaurant was quiet. We were offered a free drink while we waited which we had but didn’t really want. Egg was overcooked and salmon quality was awful. We saw the chefs more outside of the kitchen than inside, probably why our food took so long. When asked if we could have a further discount we were refused. We paid and left as had already been in there an hour longer than expected. Would not recommend.

    Open table allowed a dinner booking even though the kitchen was closed. The kitchen closes at 5pm on Sunday The staff were very nice and recommended a good spot nearby, but was it would be good to update the listing. I therefore didn't actually eat here for dinner. I have been in for drinks before and it was very nice.
