Fabulous restaurant, great service, understandably lost some of its buzz because of Covid restrictions, still a great place to eat.

A lovely restaurant that tries to be more than what it offers. The steak was average, though well cooked. The service was OK but not overly attentive. The dinner was good, not great - and the expectation when you walk in is set very high.

The food was great, but it was the warm, friendly and extremely professional service which stood out for me.

Thank you for making our special day so memorable.

Service and ambience were so perfect! An amazing treat post lockdown. The chips were disappointing however, 3 years ago they used to be unbelievable - so that was slightly disappointing. Nonetheless we definitely will visit again!

The lunch with friends was really good. Initially the restaurant was no so busy but it did fill up as it had only been open for two days. One of my favourite restaurants.

As a regular at Berners Tavern, I am always impressed by the consistently good level of service provided by the waiters. At my last visit, I found both the waiter and chef to be extremely helpful in changing the garish of my meal and appreciated him coming out to check whether I'd enjoyed the meal. The service is ALWAYs second to none. Thank you to everyone for continually offering an excellent dining experience.

We booked last minute for a group from work. Having dined here before I knew that my party would all have a great time - which we did!
The service was excellent but relaxed and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

My sister and I went to try the Sunday roast at Berners Tavern and it was great. The portions were generous especially with the bottomless Yorkshire puddings, I had a fab Bloody Mary which was made at our table to my liking and the service was impeccable. The only downfall was a slightly odd aperitif which was expensive and not really as described.

The restaurant was very good, especially the staff. However, when we adjourned to the hotel for a couple of games of pool, we were approached by one of the managers who treated us like football hooligans who were not welcome.
This left a really sour taste in our mouths and with this in mind, we will not be rushing back.

Everything was perfect. From the entrance we were welcomed by a very friendly lady who walked to greet us as we approached the door. Our waiters were very attentive and throughout the service was first class. Food was impeccable and we both scraped our plates clean. The ambiance is wonderful. It feels classy and elegant and the whole experience was wonderful.

We went to Berner's Tavern on a Friday night. Asked to wait 5+ minutes for our table, yet there were several open. We asked to move seats as we couldn't hear each other and the server never checked or let us know. They were also sold out of the Lamb Pie, which is why we went! But the server did not suggest anything else or apologize. Then he didn't visit our table again, we were served by multiple other people, having to flag them down. The entrees did not arrive all at the same time. The nicest employee was the hostess, 5 stars to her!

While the food was good, the service was very bad. We waited 25 minutes after sitting down before we were able to order drinks, and had to ask twice before someone came. Main courses did not all come out at the same time. We had to remind the waiter about the missing dish. He went back to look for it, and returned with it 5 or so minutes later. He warned that the plate was very hot, but in fact the food was only warm, clearly having sat out for some time forgotten while the other dishes were prepared. Having waited so long for food and drinks I did not think for a second to send it back. The maitre'd was quite solicitous and offered to send the assistant manager over. When he came he was not especially interested and offered a bit of cheese to compensate for the bad service. There are so many great restaurants in this price range that offer both great service and great food that it doesn't make sense to go here.

The food just gets weirder and weirder. It’s hard to pick a dish from the menu, as all the options are too elaborate and exotic. The mixed leaf salad contained chicory, onions and one lettuce leaf.

The food was fine, the staff were fine. Was it wow - not really but given that there was a fire alarm and we had to leave half way through our brunch, the management were very good in dealing with that.
