Great bar, great food & amazing staff. The 2 girls looking after my partners birthday celebration couldn’t have been more efficient & friendly. Corona on draught was a bonus but the staff really made the evening special by making sure we always had a drink...& making sure the birthday girl was happyMore

I would rate this place 4/5 for the food, which was really delicious, but my lower rating of 3 reflects the poor standard of hygiene. I would love to recommend it to my friends but do not feel confident about doing so until they improve...the cleanliness throughout. Very good service.More

We visited the Emperor last night with friends. We were warmly welcomed as we sat in their beer garden which was nice and cosy. They had a DJ on with great latino tunes and cool music. Food was really nice and they make great cocktails...too. Highly recommend visiting this fab venue which had a great atmosphere and felt like a mini party although very covid safe as it was table service.More

New management, amazing music and beer garden, we try a few Peruvian dishes but I love the oyster, good flavours, nice presentation and friendly service. Thanks to Dan the manager and Raisa, they help us and look after us for our lunch today.

Came here on my birthday with my house mates, and had a truly amazing experience, the food was so tasty, you could tell it was made by someone who cares about what they’re doing. Finally, the drinks were amazing! a small selection of signature cocktails...(with classics available) that were so nice! Will definitely return again.More

Service - brilliant. They smiled, were attentive, tried hard. When compared with some other local establishments my fear is that they'll realise they could get away with less, but for now you can see the effort going in The food was good, prompt. Eclectic beer...selection. I really hope this place goes from strength to strength, it deserves to.More

We went here after a very positive review in A newspaper. On arrival, the service was exceptional with very friendly staff. We asked to be seated downstairs where it’s a bit livelier rather than upstairs which felt a bit bland in comparison to the lively...buzzing atmosphere of the main bar. The tapas was ok... we had 5 dishes which I’d say 2 were hits (chicken wings, croquettes) and 2 were not to my taste (beef tacos, tomato bread) and 1 was just olives so no real opinion on those, olives are olives but could have probably mixed in some black olives instead of all green. Overall an enjoyable few hours. I’ve had better tapas but the staff are great and make up for any food shortcomings. Ps. Don’t go to the loo if you judge a restaurants hygiene standards by its toilets though!More

I’m sure you can but why only two people when you can have a party of 150 inside.
