    We were helped by Karen who was amazing. Very attentive to all tables and quick at getting us started for another round. Charles was the bartender and he was incredible. He made us custom drinks based on our preferences and they were all delicious. The man is a magician!

    We only had cocktails so I can’t rate the food. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the cocktails were delicious. The general ambiance is very sophisticated, and I will definitely return.

    Very attractive bar, beautiful interior, drinks/cocktails were excellent....but the best part was the service, especially our waiter Mac (Macallan), exemplary service, well done.

    The Peacock Bar has a lovely ambience. The service was excellent - we were looked after by Stephanie, and our drinks were made by Joanna. We had a Martini and an Orchard, and they were lovely. A great start, before a superb dinner, to a lovely evening.

    I booked a table for food , however when we arrived we were told it was a drinks only table . I felt it was not clear . The valet bar looked really beautiful , it’s a shame we couldn’t dine there . The restaurant was full .
