The customer service in this place is poor. Staff look down at you and talk down too you. The drinks are nice and the atmosphere was great as they had a live act. But the staff are obnoxious. 06/10/18

Went here with a big group of friends and everyone loved it. Generous potions, very tasty gravy and good quality meat. The staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back.

This place is particularly exclusive and trendy, or that's the impression the staff appear to hold. None of them able to manage a smile and speaking in monosyllabic manner when serving, clearly inconvenienced by the presence of customers. When is the Happy Hour?
