Visited for Sunday brunch on Father’s Day. Food was really good and kids were well catered for - especially the chocolate fondue dessert! Restaurant was quite quiet and we were lucky to get a booth. Food, cocktails and atmosphere are consistently good.

Berts Jazz Bar has a lovely atmosphere & the waiter staff are very professional. The food was very disappointing. The nibbles (parsnip crisps & olives) were basic; the smallest olives I've ever seen with large stones; parsnip crisps a bit over cooked. The £26.50 ribeye...More

We had just one drink here. Over £5.00 a pint but it is a five star hotel. Lady who served us was friendly. We sat outside at tables watching world go back. Nice bar to have a drink.

There’s no clear dress code here. You can wear casual attire, or you can scale up to something a bit dressier, but it’s not formal. Hope that helps!

A 5 piece Jazz band plays every week night at 9 that is true but maybe you would be interested in the fact there is a set on every Sunday with a solo pianist between 12 & 2pm? It's a very relaxed atmosphere.
