    Had booked a table for a festive lunch menu advertised several weeks ago. Didn’t realise until we got there that this had been cancelled which was disappointing not to have been told. Otherwise very good.

    Friendly staff but slow service (I think they were short staffed). Food quality was ok, but not good and some of the dishes on the menu were unavailable. Suggest you go for the lovely choice of cocktails and then somewhere else to eat

    Took over 25 mins for our first drink, one drink didn’t have the garnish and was still charged full price for it. Drinks are not worth £9. Without the full experience with the garnishes the drinks are not worth £9.

    Service extremely poor. Table service in place. Despite only 3 tables we waited 15 minutes to be served, after calling over staff. 30 minutes from entry to drinks served. 10% service charge added too. Staff themselves pleasant and acknowledged delay.

    Christmas lunch booked for six. The Spiritualist was locked up and in darkness. Extremely disappointing that no one bothered to contact me regarding the cancellation/failure to function . Even got a message the day before to confirm the booking. What absolute nonsense

    Nice cocktails. The waiters really know the drinks which is helpful. Substantial cocktail list to pick from. Lovely decor and ambiance. Quite pricey but nice for a treat. Didn't have food but looked nice. Popular place so had to reserve in advance.

    Service was slow and we only had drinks this time but had an automatic service charge on the bill. It should be every individual persons choice whether they wish to pay a Service charge depending on the service etc. Disappointing that we had to pay it despite the service not being up to scratch!!! Cocktails are good though 😊

    Came in for cocktails with family visiting from out of town. The decor and ambience is great. The cocktails taste fantastic and priced appropriately for the quality. Service can be slow at time but wasn't a problem. (food only marked down as we didn't eat here but couldn't submit a review wihtout grading food)

    Been for drinks before, this was the first time for food and drinks. Had a selection of starters all very good. Friday night at 6:30 was quiet but still took a while at times to get drinks even though place was quiet. Overall though enjoyable experience. Table next to us, had burgers and they looked great.

    Family mid week meal & wanted to try somewhere different. Although we’d heard about The Spiritualist, none of us had been before. The food was absolutely delicious & we all agreed it’s going to be one of our regular go-to’s from now on. The decor, ambience & service were second to none.
