Food nice but not worth the price tag. Crab starter priced at £22 but minuscule. Service a bit slow. Waited 20 minutes for our drinks. We were only a table of two and this was at 10-11 pm so not very busy at this point either. Beautiful venue and nice ambience/vibes but doubt I’d be in a hurry to return.

Terrible service
One of our menu came out very late. Ordered hot chocolate and it came out after food. Had to ask for maple syrup for waffle twice. The waiter was not good.

All food and drink was delicious, and with the exception of a rogue coffee service was excellent.

Great food, good service, but too noisy for a group of 6 people to talk easily across the table.
Mentioned this to staff, but did not seem to care.

Food not to our expectations. Th signature dishes (2 out of 3, meat) were not available at 9.30 p.m. The service did not ask how we want our meet (raw, medium, etc) ; as a result we had to return our dish for extra cooking, as we did not want it raw.hard to find available waiter. the ambience great, but does not suffice

Great venue, but overpriced food remains somehow ordinary. The sommelier also has a naughty tendency to recommend the most expensive wines on the list.

Excellent dining experience, the only negative was that the wines are overpriced for mid range producers. The food and service is excellent and could not be faulted

Nice ambience and friendly staff.
However, the service at the table was slow and inattentive. The food pretty average and very pricey for the quality of the food. Wine also overpriced.
All in all disappointing andI'm afraid we won't be going back again.

Mixed feelings, great venue, outstanding food, but sadly I felt the front of house had a bad service and things were not as smooth as it could be.

It was quiet, service was lovely as usual though our orders kept being mixed up (though this was very minor).

Great but pricing seems a bit unbalanced. On a plate by plate basis, factoring in wholesale costs of ingredients, skill and usual mark ups - the costs of dishes are very unbalanced. In particular - one thin slice of sourdough toast with a single layer of beans and a hint of cheese with an udetectable 'green chilli dressing' surely can not be just £4 less than a full English? Particularly with sides being priced as they are. Not great with a party of 4 - felt like somebody chose the short straw. Great service (some bumbling about). Very tasty food. Great vibe. Great space. Just felt just a little bit hustled on one dish. Almost like it was improvised because maybe a KP forgot to go out and get more bread.

Always one of our favourites. Bizarrely they had no green vegetables available.... not sure how you run out of broccoli and spinach by the first sitting on a Friday....

The atmosphere is lovely, and the restuarant is based in a beautiful dining room next to an equally beautiful hotel setting. The food was good, but as we didnt order starters and we were one of the first there for lunch, our main meal almost came too quickly before we could enjoy some of the wine and atmosphere. The food was very good, but very pricey for what it was.

Berners Tavern is a highly recommended experience. The room is absolutely amazing and the food is really great even as a vegetarian. The only thing I can criticise is the bernaise sauce that was thin and didn’t haw much taste of tarragon.

We went in with high expectations and they were surpassed. For the price, which I personally find more than reasonable, we ate very well, enjoyed some lovely cocktails and were served incredibly quickly and looked after during our sitting, but for me the setting is special. The lighting was perfect at the time we dined and I found myself getting lost looking at all the artwork and pictures that surrounded us. If you get a booth, lucky you! Have recommended to many friends already and will certainly be going back.

It was a nice experience as it is a very high class restaurant. However we felt judged by a FEW of the staff members - like we weren’t their usual customer, if you know what I mean.
The food was good although I think I could have had a better experience elsewhere for half the price.

Staff could be less brusque. Was told no less than 3 times that our table was needed back at 5 pm. However once 5 pm came said staff didn’t remove us as there were lots of tables available. Some better table side manner would go a long way especially in a city rife with options for afternoon tea.
