Big disappointment not what I and my friends paid for. Food inadequate,music indescribable,and has said in earlier post new year celebrations,WHAT celebrations. Few fireworks and 20 secs of auld lang syne. That was it...I had this place recommended to me as classy,now I'm no snob but if this was classy then I'm the Queen. Hasn't to say I will NEVER... More

Went for birthday drinks with my fiancé. Really lovely atmosphere and setting and quite quiet which was nice, however when we ordered drinks the barmen didn't know how to make their own cocktails. I only had a peach and rosemary spritzer which was literally just peach, pineapple, vanilla and prosecco (and rosemary although they didn't have any which didn't bother... More

The cocktails at this bar are good for the price! We have always gone when we plan an afternoon of cocktails, which most often doesn't result in costing more than £40 as we take advantage of the 241 cocktails!

This is an Ideal New Years Eve Party Venue! Great staff, great atmosphere and not too expensive to gain entry. We had a great night!

Why bother adding your dietary requirements when they are not followed? I had it on the paper with my name on the table - no spicy no black pepper!!! The only good thing was the dessert. At 21:45 we had to leave the tables as they were moved away and were replaced with others fit for a disco night club.... More

Was with small group (6) Asian guys. Well dressed and we were refused entry. No one was drunk. The place was relatively empty. We are all educated working professional ranging from consultant to directors. Just what is your policy.. ? It's 2016.. not 1960..

We chose this venue for our works christmas night out as the menu looked good and their was a resident DJ. We realised by the end of the night it was the biggest mistake of our lives. Our table was booked for 730pm and we were seated at 820pm with no appologies for the lateness. The night rapidly deteriated with... More

I looked for somewhere I could book lunch for me and some friends when visiting the German Market and to be honest, I would have been far better off with a foot long bratwurst from the market than here! Upon walking in the stench of disinfectant hit my nostrils - ok, nice that they had cleaned the sticky floor since... More
