Been reluctant to log a review as I was on 200 reviews and the next two would spoil it. It's a silly reason especially holding back such a score from the branch but I'm young and foolish.

This branch was amazing. The staff, the food, the decorations. I wish I could give them a full house but the food was a ten minute wait which is the only thing to bring them down.

The staff were so bright and happy when we arrived, greeted us at the front door and gave us a good table with a view of most of the branch. Ordering was easy as we used a red reward for a free whole chicken and I ordered large chips, sweet mash and garlic bread to get another chilli. We initially only had a little two seater table but the guy grabbed the other one to accommodate all the food. Was given a dinky little quarter pint cup for my water however which was the only annoyance as that means going up loads to refill.

The food tasted great no complaints whatsoever. The mash was hot, the chicken well cooked, oh yeah I also had halloumi but they seemed to give us an extra portion for free which went down well with everything else.

The staff were attentive and let us walk around the restaurant for a mini tour. Out the back was incredible with huge ferns around the back and two large paintings on the wall. One was a 3d picture mosaic made of beads with a good story and the other side was a picture not that I can remember specifics. Bigger group tables out here though it was a little cold.

I would definitely recommend and go back to this restaurant if I was in the area. Their decorations are quite unique with a fish pattern made out of lights hanging in the front which probably reminds one of the history of Spitalfields Market. Great job well done
