    The restaurant looks lovely, but music was too loud. Food was ok, but extremely expensive- for exampe, a portion of olives (10 olives to be precise) was £4.50!!! Won’t be returning. Felt like we were ripped off.

    A nice restaurant with good service let down by mediocre food. Nothing I couldn’t Hal e knocked up at home for a fraction of the price. Using the bank holiday as an excuse for have no fish for the fish platter seemed strange.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our first time at The Lounge by Graze Life. Food was fresh and delicious. We chose 3 separate options and shared between 3 people rather than the unlimited option. Was unsure as to whether we’d have enough food but we were all pretty full by the time we finished. I’m going to return and try the afternoon tea option as that also looked delicious.

    Although the staff were friendly and the place looks lovely, it was very poor value for money. We paid £39 for a Traditional Platter for 2 people and were both expecting to receive a considerably larger platter for this price. The price for a ‘platter for 1’ is £19.50 and in my opinion is what I would have expected to pay for what we received. Very disappointing as it all looked and sounded lovely and we had high hopes, but won’t be returning. We decided to go elsewhere for dessert afterwards!

    we chose a Saturday at 2pm and there was only 1 other table booked but that was fine. As a group of 4 we got great service and had some superb food and a lovely bottle of wine. Good selection of food was on offer but you have to save room for the Brownies.....really good. Having tried this once, we will definitely be back. Loved it.

    Been twice now and very much enjoyed it. Love the fact you can enjoy a cup of tea or a glass of wine. Boards now come with bread which is much better value. The staff don’t rush you out and make you feel welcome and you are not crammed in unlike B&W in Berko There is something about this place that makes you feel quite relaxed. Look forward to seeing more sweet treats too for afters as they expand

    Graze boards combined a wine bar is a great idea, well executed. One or two of the staff seem new and a bit unsure, but the service was friendly and pleasant. Nice evening. Will return.,

    In the past we have ordered graze boards from Michelle, so I was very excited to try out her newly opened lounge bar. Very happy to see the same high quality ingredients, all locally sourced. Great wine selection and teas/coffee. The lounge has been stylishly decorated with a homely feeling. Really enjoyed our afternoon here and hope to return for an evening soon!

    Really lovely welcoming team who talked us through the menu with passion. Quality and quantity of food was excellent and the wine was good value for a premium product It was a shame it was quiet but this was due to the storm that made most people stay at home. But the fab team made sure they made up for this with super service. Can’t wait to visit again

    Lovely staff, great friendly service, good food and coffee, nice venue. The menu is quite limited, that would be the only criticism but they are newly opened do this may change.

    Thank you so much for visiting us and for the feedback. As you mentioned in your review we are new and had only been open 3 weeks. While the menu is reflective of our concept, we have now updated the menu with a few different options and set graze boards for both brunch and tapas. We look forward to you visiting again. Many thanks again x

    Ambience, food & staff more suited to a day time cafe than evening meal.

    The Lounge By Graze LifeResponded on January 10, 2022

    Hi Rachel. Thank you for the feedback. We had only been open a week when you visited, and I agree with it being so busy it wasn't the ambience that I would have liked for The Lounge. We have however since changed the opening times, and emphasised to our customers the we are a Brunch and Tapas wine bar (not a coffee shop). This has allowed us to manage customers a lot easier and allowed for a much more relaxed ambiance more suited to a restaurant.
