Had dinner here last week and the service & food were amazing. Ambiance is really nice too. Definitely exceeded my expectations ! Ideal for Date Nights, Birthdays or just to have a really good dinner. 2 Starters, 2 Meals & a bottle of wine came up to about £60.

Visiting for the first time for my fiancée's birthday. The table service was prompt and efficient. The food was absolutely delicious! The servings were more than ample, had to get some out into take away containers as we couldn't eat it all. Over all the price was average £20 per head including drinks. Overall a really good night out well worth a visit. We will use them for take away and will edit review then to reflect this.

Waiting 45 min at the table for your food is a big ask. And once starters came, it took another 40 min for the crispy duck to arrive. Another 40 for the mains. Friday night, I know. But just stop taking orders if you can't cope, unless the customer is made aware. I'll not be going back there, the whole experience was traumatic.

Went on a weekday so even though we’d booked, it was very quiet- only 3 other tables. Food was excellent and I’ve had a takeaway from here before so I knew portions were big. There’s no parking which is a problem during bad weather. The only thing that spoiled it for me that even though it’s a large restaurant- they put us next to a group of rowdy men. It made conversation hard. But I’ve noticed restaurants do group people together for ease of service. I’d go again.

Really poor experience with this take away. We pre ordered our takeaway at 4pm to arrive at 7:30pm. It did not arrive on time. After 12 calls, at 8pm, I finally got through to the elephant and the lady on the phone apologised and blamed their online booking system - saying that they have no control of the number of bookings that are made. She then hung up on me before I had a chance to talk to her. I had to call her back to get information about when our food would be arriving. Our food finally arrived shortly after 8:30pm - an hour late! The food was ok, average, but the order was wrong in some places. Really poor service, average food. We will not be ordering from them again.
