    The bar was great. YOU weren’t. When you send a text at 13.00 saying ‘your table is ready now’ and my booking was for 14.00 I panic that the booking’s been changed. Please amend the text to read ‘your table is ready now if you’d like to arrive early’.

    Absolutely fantastic food - really couldn't fault it. Great amount of veggie options meant we were all happy too. The service was efficient without us feeling rushed, super friendly and it was just an overall fantastic celebration meal out.

    The food tasted fantastic(only issue was the patatas tomato sauce was watery, maybe authentic tbf) and the staff are super friendly which is exactly what you want. It's England so when you're in an "indoor heated terrace" it's absolutely freezing and not ideal for dining. Bet it's fantastic in the summer.

    Expensive and cold... The service was great people always super nice. Food outstanding. However we were inside and it was cold. Bill came and it was expensive for what we had .. i guess thats maybe a general thing nowadays and not bar san juan thing.

    An amazing place. Second visit and it didn’t disappoint. Lovely friendly staff. Very nice wines and the food was delicious. The monkfish skewers with the sautéed potatoes were just incredible ! Looking forward to going back. Just glad I booked. I didn’t think we’d have to on a Thursday afternoon in January, but they turned a couple of groups away.
