The staff are all so friendly and polite despite the place being so busy. The food was delicious and well priced for what you get. The past couple of times I’ve been sat upstairs and it was really hot but the temperature and ambiance this time was perfect. Will definitely keep coming back to this Bucks Bar.

Booked a table for 2 & it was at the bottom of the stairs & it was cold.

Toilets were filthy with toilet rolls stuck to the sink & floors very slippy.

Food was great like normal.

My friend picked here for her birthday. The guy who served us at the door was very welcoming and friendly, took us to our table where he told us ‘mark will take care of you’. Waited a while to be served and when we were, I asked if it was okay to order drinks first and his reply was ‘well.. aye? Preferably everything?’ Then my friend ordered her food with 2 sides and his reply was “ehh that’s quite a lot of scran..like that’s quite a lot of food” thinking he was joking but no, he was serious basically implying my friend should change her order and order less. I’ve never been to a restaurant where they make you feel bad about what you’re ordering. We’re paying so who cares? Service from him was appalling but every one else was very friendly.

Food was outstanding, very good value for money.

Toilets could have been cleaned more often.

But still left with a huge smile on our faces.

Food was amazing! The service couldn’t have been better. The venue was very busy but never once did we feel we weren’t being seen to enough and the staff were all very friendly. We were sitting out side and then got moved inside for drinks, the music inside was a bit too loud to be able to talk to each other but other than that it was a great first visit and we’ll definitely be back!

Our table was inside, and the seats were far too close to the table. My daughters a size 8 and fitted behind table comfortably, I am size 12 which was fine, however my partner is a 38 waist and had to ask for a chair to put on the end, on asking for this 2 young female servers standing to the side found this amusing, then when clearing the table the dip was dropped all over my partners trousers, therefore it was straight hone after that, instead of cinema as planned!
Disappointed.

Can’t fault the food or the service, but the number of people who where allowed to hang about at the bar with a drink and no masks, or walk about without masks was quite disconcerting.

Great service, all members of staff couldn't have done enough for the customers.
Food was on point, quick to be served and tasty.
Choice of on-tap alcohol was a little lacking but that's splitting hairs.

Would of preferred more room at our table as seated outside but that is only slight gripe I could have.
Seated promptly, food served within 10 minutes of ordering, staff friendly and helpful.
Will definitely recommend and will most certainly be back👍

Came along as had been recommended and was really looking forward to trying it, however was really disappointed. first thing was my husband had to send his Chicken burger back as it wasn't cooked(it was taken off he bill as he didn't want to try anything else after that)
My hand cut chips were black and looked like the remnants of the frier at a chip shop at the end of the night. The staff were pleasant but was definitely not somewhere I would be keen to visit again.
