    I've been here twice and the food has been great each time, seated very quickly due to booking and served with a smile. Beer selection could be better but there are lots of other drinks to choose from. The service tends to be on the slower side, however this makes for a nice dining experience with a 2 hour window to sit and enjoy the place, I will eat here again. Portions are very large, you will want a nap after eating their hearty comfort food.

    I loved the food, and want to return to celebrate another personal occasion. The only fault I could find was the male toilet facilities which I found very substandard with just one toilet and a lock which I found difficult to catch.

    Amazing decor, warm atmosphere, service friendly (although a little slower than expected for first drinks order and the fact the food was pre-ordered, but we didn't mind as we were chatting away). Food is beautifully presented, and tastes amazing. Large portions, so don't underestimate. Beef is succulent and falls apart in your mouth.

    The food and service were amazing but the courses did take a long time to come after ordering, this is only a little thing as we were in no rush the food was fresh and tasty and worth waiting for.

    Lovely food but disappointed with the service you need more than one person to take orders etc and had to go to keep going to the bar for menus etc.

    What a fantastic experience. The decor and ambiance is so welcoming and warm. I came for lunch with my twin sister to celebrate our belated birthday. Our father was polish and it was such a delight to be transported back in time to our childhood memories of polish cuisine, a real nostalgic trip that we will treasure forever. We both had soup to start, the first mouthful of the beetroot soup was such a joy, just how i remembered it and the mushroom croquets were fabulous. My sister had the sour cabbage soup, almost a meal in itself! We were both wondering if we had room for our main dish! I had the sharing platter for 2 as my main course, a fabulous array of polish cheese, meats and pate accompanied with bread and pickles, far too much for 1 person , however, this was neatly parcelled up for me to take home. My sister had the beef roulade with silesian dumplings and red cabbage, the beef was tender bursting with flavour. The staff were attentive and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. We will definitely be back with more family members and friends to share such a fabulous experience with them. Thank you for making our birthday treat so special. Kind regards Sandra and Sally
