    Rules before customer, go next door to del Aziz, friendly and accommodating

    Avoid on a Friday evening/night. The DJ thinks he's in a nightclub in Ibiza, and consequently it's ear-splittingly loud, making conversation utterly impossible and killing any decent atmosphere.

    Four staff behind the bar, only two "allowed to serve customers". WTF?

    Don't come too thirsty- your wait for a drink, even on a quiet Sunday afternoon, will be a while

    Burgers here are lush, and the Cocktails are excellent. Nice to sit outside if its warm.

    Been here several times over the past few years and sadly the quality of the food has gone steadily downhill.

    My son said "best burger I've ever tasted"

    Wine is good, staff are nice, but too many corporate tossers in the clientele

    Mango mojito didn't taste much of mango.

  • Hug C.

    Very noisy, but as (here) I have diner alone I don't really mind. I'm a regular customer and never been desapointed by the food ; I wouldn't say the same for the service...

    Hug C. · January 15, 2013
  • Iain B.

    High hopes dashed. The service here is pretty slow and poor.

    Food was lovely but the service is pretty shocking - not a place to go if you're in any kind of a hurry

    Jana · August 31, 2012
  • Chris H.

    You'll wait 20mins to get served even if there's noone at the bar. Nice enough place though

    Chris H. · June 7, 2012
  • Jon R.

    Nice layout but the service particularly at lunchtime is appalling. Need more staff behind the bar.

    Oh dear. Refinery really let me down tonight. Bad food. Bad service. Part-refund helped but still tainted the evening.

    Anna G. · October 17, 2011
  • Dan H.

    order at the bar when busy, you'll be waiting a long time for a waitress ...
