    Not good to go there when a wedding having cocktail hour. Also menu changed and not as good as before. Fish tacos, fish ‘n chips, burger all removed. Need to keep some basic meals.

    Loved the new menu! Fish tacos were very bland but my hubby’s chorizo dish was great!! Tons of flavour! Trivia night is always the best!!! Amazing servers!! Can’t wait to be back!

    What a fun place for a drink. We split a couple of food items as well. Very fun atmosphere. Definitely going back for trivia night.

    My husband and I are celebrating our Anniversary and we decided to eat at The Library Bar. Ethan introduced himself as our server and he went above and beyond with the service. Ethan suggested today's drink and what a choice!!! Amazing!!!!We also got to keep the cups as souvenirs. My husband ordered the fish and chips and I ordered the tacos. The tacos were delicious, it tasted like authentic Mexican tacos. My husband looooooved the fish and chips. I had to ask who the Chef is here and I need to meet her. Chris, the chef, was humble and all I can do say is,Chris, you've outdone yourself! A great chef and baker. Anyone who wants to be in a chilled atmosphere with excellent service and food, you need to dine here. Again,thank you to the chef, the hostess, everyone who contributed to the amazing service,it's been a long time since we had a service like this. Also, I also want to add that the homemade apple crumble along with the chocolates were so divine,the perfect way to end our celebration. We are definitely coming back here for our next anniversary. We've made new friends and a new yearly destination.

    I’ll start on a positive - staff were friendly and service was good. Not a proper Afternoon Tea. The cups, tea pots and serving trays were not proper china. Only six selections of bagged tea were offered. The scones were actually just tea biscuits (store bought?) that were just barely defrosted and served cold. Quality of top tier sweets was store bought as well. Double cream instead of clotted. Price did not reflect the quality.

    The server was really friendly, the atmosphere was just okay (for Valentine's dinner) the lights could have been dimmer. The music selection complimented the evening but the food was not very good at all. The dip tasted like it was made days earlier and served with stale pita and chips. The fish was hardly cooked and the chicken supreme was average at best. The trio of cheesecake was the best part of the meal. I think sticking to their regular menu might be okay, but for a special event and set menu I wouldn't return. I was hoping for more. Again, the server was really friendly and working hard.

    Atmosphere was beautiful in the library , food could be better . Treats tasted like store bought or frozen. Served was very friendly but not enough staff he was very busy to attend to us. Not a lot of teas to choose from. Was fine for one time but wouldn’t go back for high tea again.

    I was disappointed with the English tea. We were seated and given our choice of tea and brought hot water in metal teapots. My mother is English and this is really not ok. Our food was dropped Off unceremoniously at our table. No one explained what the sandwiches or treats were. The Jam for the scones was dried out. No one approached our table again until it was time for the bill. We didn’t even get a refill of hot water for our tea.
