We like this place, nice food, relaxed atmosphere, trendy decor, good drinks, modern American menu. The unexpected highlight were the nachos, I wasn't expecting them to be home made...dedication! So nice with plenty of seasoning, chilli's, salsa, guacamole everything piled on and baked so the cheese is gorgeously gooey...wonderful. Burgers were very nice and juicy, mac and cheese was good....

Service was friendly, but REALLY slow. It took quite a while to get our drinks, and 40 minutes to get our food (no starters). We also ordered another drink which was completely forgotten,... More

Found this place by accident and enjoyed breakfast in there so much went back for dinner. Staff very friendly and attentive. Menu is very different and tried the mint pancakes for breakfast. Gorgeous. Ambiance and decor very enjoyable and lovely place to spend time just for a coffee or beer. Well recommended and would go back again no problem....
