Was good for couples however table service was poor only offered 1 drink then to try find staff around to ask for more drinks was just a task. We also got told to move our booked table to another which wasn’t a great table in the corner. No mention of the requests I put in and didn’t even acknowledge. It wasn’t even that busy

Attentive service and delicious cocktails in a relaxed atmosphere.

Didn’t have any food but what I saw of others they looked to be enjoying it (won’t let me leave rating above blank).

Fantastic location. Menu wasn’t brilliant. Fantastic view but certainly worth saving until summertime. All staff were pleasant but not over the top.
This is a well maintained decorated location.
As residents we were given two free drinks vouchers. These were for house wine or other selected drinks. Not what we were drinking. Staff cashed them in to the value. No problem.

Nice view. Nice atmosphere even though it was slightly empty when we arrived. There were 3 of us having afternoon tea. The tea itself was lovely. However, the afternoon tea was served on big black stands that looked like a naughts and crosses children’s game. Once on the table we couldn’t see each other and it was really difficult to talk so we were constantly trying to rearrange the table. Would be better if they served the savoury food first, then followed by the sweets and not all at once. The food itself was a good variety and suited all our tastes.

Not very impressed with this place. Alhough the view was amazing the cocktails were mediocre at best but the overall experience was like being in a night club. The music was so loud you couldn't hear yourself speak. We had 1 drink and left

I did enjoy my visit to the bar, however, I had booked a table and didn’t feel where I was seated was the nicest area, I would have preferred to be seated on the nicer side with the sofas, not where all the bar staff were retrieving their orders.
The music and ambience wasn’t right for me at all, it was totally deafening, I think the decor and handcrafted cocktails lent itself to something a little more upper class then loud dance music, perhaps some piano music. I would loved to have heard what the person I was with was saying but simply couldn’t.
Finally I was disappointed with my last drinks order, which after 15 minutes of waiting it became apparent had been totally forgotten so we left.
I think the idea behind the bar is nice but please don’t turn it into a nightclub, Allow people to relax, enjoy the view and chat.
I thought about eating there but it certainly was not the right venue for that at all, it was basically a nightclub with no dance floor, very strange.

I've been here twice and the first time was really great. I'm not sure why they still ask you to specify what occasion it's for when booking, because they didn't acknowledge it was our anniversary at all. Our recent visit almost tarnished the first experience (which was a year ago) because the service just wasn't as good. The guy who served us was great but the other guys working weren't as attentive.

However, our original visit for our first anniversary was great, they gave us a bucks fizz and congratulated us... and it's worth going for the view.

We were jumped on by the bouncer as soon as we arrived trying to dictate the law on drinking with food. As a result we decided against eating there.
Was too loud due to a dj and when we went outside to enjoy the view, it was ruined by people smoking!
Will not bother again. You guys need to think about the customer experience a bit more!
And I’m no prude but seriously half naked women with their boobs out?
And they asked my daughter for proof of age but not the boy who came in after her??? Why not?

Went on a Sunday evening - it was quiet with only around 6 tables occupied. However we was waiting a good 15 minutes with empty drinks before having to call the waiter over and then decided to get then bill rather than another drink or food which was the plan due to the poor service. The food only got a rating of 5 stars because the menu looked great (and i had to rate it) even though we didn't actually eat due to service.

Although the service was good we found the to be a little on the scruffy side her apron was in need of a good iron and her white blouse was an off white.
The tea pots and cups were stained and in need of a good clean.
The seat I was sat on had a covering of one of the studs missing and was unable to sit back in case I caught my top on it
Because of this our experience was tainted with disappointment especially as it was a birthday present for my friend

We came to the sky lounge for a birthday. We had booked and ordered the afternoon teas to be pleasantly surprised with a deal of 2 for £29.99. The sandwiches and cakes were delicious and unlimited hot drinks with variety. The service was a bit slow from actually waiting to order to waiting for drinks and wanting to re-order drinks again. We were served by one member of staff who had informed us of an afternoon tea however the table next to us were told about a ‘new’ menu and had received another afternoon tea, we were a bit disappointed to not have received this. Overall it was an amazing experience and would definitely recommend.
