Friendly and welcoming staff. We had the private room, on the food front and with 17 of us there was a wide variety pre-ordered off the all day menu and not one complaint from anyone, it was delicious and fresh...

What an evening...they made my day.The service was just amazing, our bartender was the best waiter ever, very professional, high skilled, he has good sensitivity for the guest, his attention was spot on. I really want to say a big thank you. We will be back for sure. <3

Great bar with wonderful staff. We had our own room with food and drink set out and attentive staff that came through regularly to tidy up and take drinks orders from those of us that wanted drinks other than the pre-ordered ones. The venue is lovely and in a wonderful spot. The food was really nice and the service was great. Would definitely visit again.

I had a fab time at the happenstance along with family and friends. The service and food were both excellent and great value for money and location; situated close to St Paul's Cathedral. All in all worth a visit!!

We were in a lovely private room on the side of the restaurant for a wedding reception. Plenty of seating, lovely candles and a bar. The ladies toilets had gorgeous scented candles in them and a jar of sweets! It's a shame the weather was so awful that day, otherwise we could have spilled out onto Paternoster square and enjoyed the October sunshine. Instead we enjoyed the lovely room, with its fur throws on some of the seats and its cosy ambience. Great place for a private celebration.
