We managed to get a table for 4 easily and received our food, which was very good. The music is very loud which makes it very difficult to have any conversation.
We had to wait absolutely ages for our bill probably as there were only 2 staff behind the bar and 1 of them was having to wait on the tables. We didn't get our bill so my husband went to the bar to pay but had to wait quite some time before getting served. The staff are very friendly and I guess it is not their fault they are understaffed.
I saw several people walk out as they were not served by anyone.

Food was very good - pub style food presented very nicely. Service was not very good. Ordered a second round of drinks that never came. Had to ask again and finally got them after our dinner was over.
