The food was amazing especially the curried aubergine. Service was excellent without being too obtrusive. We were upstairs so quite quiet but downstairs it was buzzing!
Will definitely be back!

We really enjoyed our meal at Bloom. The decor and atmosphere is very cosy and welcoming. There's a great variety of food options, all of which were decisions and fun to share. Perhaps a little expensive but really worth the price. The cocktail list is long with a good variety of options.

We went to Bloom for a bottomless brunch. Although food was tasty and service was friendly we only received two small plates at a time between 5 of us. We ordered 10 plates in total. There was no point trying to share the 2 plates as there wouldn't have been enough for all of us so it went cold while we waited another 15 mins for another 2 plates. The waitress then cleared our table when we still had at least 4 more plates to come. The last plates were chips which should have been brought out with everything else and we didn't even receive the cauliflower dish we ordered. We waited almost an hour when we got there for a waitress to take our order and even then we had to ask her. It's a real shame as it was recommended to us and I'd booked it as a surprise birthday brunch for my daughter :-(

My second visit in less than four weeks and just as perfect as the first. The team have started experimenting with the menu and this gave us the option to try a few new dishes. Great decision!
Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a relaxed evening out with great dishes and great team.

Bloom is a delight - from the floral-festooned beams to the diamonds and petals sprinkled over our table, the venue set us up for a wonderful evening.
The cocktails: our main reason to venture over to Bloom in Farnham. Classic cocktails get the Bloom treatment, whether it is a homemade juicy shrub as a base, or a herb- or flower-infused spirit. The signature cocktails are exquisite - the kind of drink that makes you halt conversation while you have a sip and wait for the layers of flavour to unfold. Then you talk about them for a bit before you sip again!
The tapas are super: generous portions to share, with fresh flavours and ingredients. And honestly, when you are as captivated by the cauliflower and broccolini as you are by the chilli-lime prawns, you know you're in a great restaurant!
The dessert - S'mores Chocolate Fondant - was amazing, a sophisticated twist on the classic childhood sugar bomb, but this plate was beautifully dark and smooth, with no tooth-aching sugariness. Even the giant toasted marshmallow was soft and gorgeously gooey without the cloying sweetness ever-present at a campfire. Next time I will steadfastly refuse to share that dish!
Now to convince the owners to open a branch in Haslemere...

Tasty food in pretty setting.
Food expensive, would benefit reducing by at least £1 per main dish.
We eat out at least twice every week. If reduced would visit more than once a month. Our friends who were with us who also eat out a lot agreed, very nice but expensive.
Staff very enthusiastic and attentive

Really lovely evening at Bloom,
The food was very good with a good wine list too.
Unfortunately 3 of the dishes that we chose were sold out... but I guess everyone is struggling with deliveries at the moment!

Some of food unfortunately tasted like it had been sat there a while, or just heated up. The vegetarian dishes were better than the meat or fish. Very expensive for what is was.

We have never been here before and only came to the area for an evening as my friend was doing a music gig down the road. We loved the decor and thought the place looked lovely. Once we got our head around the fact that they did tapas food we were more than excited to jump in and order multiple dishes. The food we had was tasty and well presented. I would 100% recommend this to anyone who would like something different to their normal day to day food. The staff were lovely and it was great for money. A rating of 10/10 from us, if we are ever in the area again I would 100% rebook.

The food was amazing! The truffle fries 😍 they weren’t overly busy but weren’t as attentive as I would have expected given that. Although I have to stay the staff were lovely and polite and helpful. Will definitely be coming back.

Lovely find. My favourite kind of food that really lived up to expectations. We went on a quiet Wednesday so I think it would be even better on a busy weekend evening, with a little more atmosphere.

There is much to love about Bloom but some niggly issues.

The service was amazing - the lady that waited on us was an absolute superstar - couldn't have asked for more.

Overall the food was pretty good - although I think somewhat overpriced - £9-£10 for a tapas dish seems too much, I would have expected £6-£8 type level.

Once you go inside the decor and generally feel is excellent. The outside area is also fantastic and a real surprise.

The issue we had was that our dessert took well over half an hour to arrive, and when it did it came person by person with 5+ minutes interval between each person which was really crazy.

I can only assume they were having an issue with their waffle maker that evening as I can't imagine they normally serve the desserts with a big gap between people (bearing in mind there's only 2 desserts on the menu so they must be geared up for waffle making in batches).

It was a real shame that evening end with frustration as it was lovely up until then.

The staff dealt with it very well though - discounting the bill and apologising profusely. We will probably try it again - althoguh the aforementioned cost is a little off putting - as it was almost amazing.

It was our first visit to Bloom. We enjoyed the food at this pretty restaurant but we had to wait sooo long for it. The poor waitress kept apologising. So sad when it wasn’t her fault. Really expensive for what you get. Sadly we won’t be going again.

This was a disappointment.
The food portions were tiny, and not tasteful for a starter we were provided with pitta and hummus, we had 2 small triangles of pitta and that was it, I had a small piece of cod with bland chargrilled pepper for £35 I think this was a rip off. Despite this being a bottomless brunch, we only had 4 drinks over the 2 hours and we had to constantly ask for refills. I was drinking mimosas, and one waitress clearly didn’t understand how this was made, who filled up my glass with Prosecco and provided me with a shot glass of orange juice.. which I had to carefully poor into the glass due to risk of spillage and orange juice going all over me.
Not happy with our experience and wish I had of raised this at the time to save some money which I feel I have greatly wasted on this experience.

Great evening with friends, staff friendly, helpful and patient (we were all talking too much instead of looking at the menu to decide on our orders). Food was delicious, dessert indulgent and house wine very drinkable.
