Staff were rude and dismissive the whole night. They made us feel unwelcome which made our whole dining experience uncomfortable. Shame about the staff because the food is great. I would not recommend for anyone who enjoys friendly service.

Hi there I believe you reviewed us by mistake Our current menu does not have any lamb backstrap . The awful sewage smell is a recurring issue. That affects all restaurants located in wharf st Regards
