    The service here is so poor. The waitress was extremely rude and rather indifferent, I asked her for an additional menu since she gave us one to share between 3 people and she shrugged her shoulders like I had asked for something extraordinary. The prices are over priced for the quality, a poor quality bottle of Prosecco is £40, and despite getting two bottles they kept trying to rush us out. It was very rude. On top of this they expect you to pay service charge for their rather low quality service ! I don’t think we will be coming here again.

    Decor is nice. More of a transient bar for travellers at the hotel. Great drinks. Service was slow and painful in explaining multiple times. Food didn't look great. No live music witnesses the main reason for coming.

    Oh my goodness.... I love this bar BUT the entertainment has gone DOWN it was like being at Butlins. Please have Jazz or Pianist. It would be more fitting.

    We were a group of 12 who came for a coffee and catch up. I had booked on OpenTable. When we arrived, the staff did not seem interested in greeting us and I had to find a waiter who seemed irritated. I explained I had booked and he eventually found my name but then said the table was for 2 people. I showed him my booking and he agreed to seat us. It took a while to get enough 'pouf' stools together to make a big enough grouping and then half of us were perched quite uncomfortably. The drinks came in twos and threes and it took half an hour before everyone had a coffee. The drinks were not hot and were fairly expensive for a small cup of luke warm coffee. The atmosphere was OK and, once we were seated and had drinks, we were able to have a good catch up as planned. We wouldn't book to come back, but perhaps the staff would prefer we didn't anyway - it did feel like we were quite an irritation for them, despite the bar area being pretty quiet on a Wednesday lunchtime.

    A very chilled bar with great music. I only had one cocktail which was a bit overpriced considering it wasn't very big and had no kick at all. But the wine list, whilst not that long, covers most different wallet sizes. Been twice. First time we had the Asian sharing platter. Not good value for money as there wasn't very much to share and it was like something I could have bought in a packet at Iceland. The second time the Club Sandwich was very good and more than enough for two people. In summay, nice atmosphere, quality musicians, seating comfortably apart so no overcrowding. Recommend wine and a sandwich as opposed to the expensive cocktail and sharing platter alternative.
