Food was nice. Music a bit too loud for a casual Sunday lunch.

I really miss wait staff actually attending to your table and not just directing you to use an app and then not coming over until it's time to clear the plates.

I had a booking to come for a couple of drinks and snacks at 11pm after we had dinner at the Bavarian. We weren’t allowed into High Street Social after being yelled at and told to leave by the lady at the door. We weren’t drunk nor being aggressive and was told our booking meant nothing.

The service was terrible! The floors were sticky, the staff were hopeless, when I asked for glass of wine, the bar staff had no idea if the wine was sweet or dry. They couldn’t organise a round drinks, just said to all wait for one bar tender while they served a group behind us! The food was awful and there was zero covid safe measures in place, and the staff were more pre-occupied with their mates than the level of service
I will NOT be returning.

Booked a table and was not served for atleast 35 mins as the bar was not serving so wasted a booking time.
Then couldn’t order normal drinks as the process all has to be done online and it does not allow this.
Drinks were not very good quality once they arrived.
Will never recommend to anyone after this experience.

Held off reviewing until our 2nd booking here. With a return visit to the restaurant, we were happily greeted and surprised to received a much warmer welcome and a higher standard of service. It's a great restaurant with a lot of the staff personally invested in the success of the business and it showed this time around. Food and drinks were delicious. Nice outdoor seating area, as well as ambient indoor dining areas. The only down side is that it is hard to justify the price and value of some of the menu items.

The food order came out quickly, tasted amazing and was great for value. It was extremely busy when we visited which is understandable for lower service but we ordered a cocktail jug for our table which wasn't delivered for nearly an hour as it was given to another table but they did end up bringing us a tower of another cocktail for the inconvenience.

This was the absolute worst experience. I waited 40 minutes for a cocktail tower. My partner enquires and was told there were none available. I then seen the same cocktail tower that I ordered sitting at the bar. I was told someone must have ordered before me. I said why let me wait 40 minutes for a drink and not tell me That I can’t have it, why say it’s not available and then have the nerve to serve the same drink sitting on the bar I was then offered if I wanted to order a different drink but there is still a 20 minute wait. I said what about my original drink why am I being pushed to the back of the line? After needing to repeat many times I was then served the tower 50 minutes later. Due to restrictions you are only allowed bookings for 1.5 hours so my time was almost up. I waited at the bar for 20 minutes to order two cocktails and was told at 9pm they are no longer serving cocktails yet everyone around me was ordering and being served cocktails. Absolutely disgusting service.
