Service was good until we were told we had to leave the table due to another booking. We weren't informed that this would be the case & having booked a table for 7pm I didn't assume there was another booking on the table. It wasn't the relaxed dining experience I was expecting. We were keen to stay for a few extra drinks but didn't want to stand at the bar so we ended up leaving.

Blue kitchen never fails me. Always satisfying and can’t leave without the legendary Oreo doughnuts

Fun Saturday night out with my partner when we couldn’t quite face going out out. Booked a late table, had a couple of drinks then tasty food (those chicken wings are great) with a DJ playing Motown. More fun than the average restaurant. Staff really friendly!

It was my first visit and it was for birthday party of 7. I asked if there was a complimentary drink for the birthday girl and I was told NO by Tom the manager, he said that's not something they do!! I was a bit reluctant after that considering it was my first visit, it was a birthday dinner and it was 7 of us. However, Olivia at front desk was amazing and she convinced me to still come. Her customer service was just great!! We eventually had a good time and the waitresses and rest of the staff such a delight :) Shame about Tom :(

Amazing space and decor, food was delicious and we had a great time. Only downside was the waitress coming over to our table LITERALLY every 10minutes, interrupting our conversations and generally ruining the vibe. I appreciate the 'american style' service but that was a bit much and un-necessary, especially when we were in the middle of our meal and with our pints still full.

Very loud dining area and not great food. Very salty. HOWEVER, excellent music upstairs after the meal made the evening. Would certainly recommend for drinks and dancing, but not for food with a chat!

I enjoyed my visit overall, but the food was SO salty which was the only disappointing part. The servers were amazing and friendly, service was fast and the vibe was lovely. Wish the food wasn't so bad as I would highly recommend it to others.

Great food! Great cocktails. Service a little slow for food but they were really busy so we didn’t mind. The staff are very nice and friendly. Nice Saturday atmosphere.

The food was delicious but what I was really impressed with was the service. A friend joined us late and wanted to order some food but we had to return the table as we’ve had it for two hours. The manager was amazing. He went that extra mile to ensure that our friend was able to order some food and it was served at the bar. You can’t fault service like that! Will definitely go back.

Good atmosphere and great service. The food was good but a little on the salty side. Cocktails were a bit pricey at £9.50 for a glass mostly filled with ice. The staff were great, friendly and attentive. We went early so it was cozy and quiet.

Food was pathetic. Chicken whatever we ordered was super salty and the jumbo beef tasted like it was microwaved and tasted bland. I was surprised when the order came within 10 mins from the time we ordered which shows a clear indication of a microwave job.

Just loving this place right now. We had burgers and beef rib. Both were outstanding and for a 50% off Mondays this is great stuff.

Makes for a great night out. great food and always fantastic service. Just note that the band are totally separate from the restaurant and that you have to queue to hand in your coat...

The servers where all super friendly, I booked a large table for my birthday and felt so looked after, even the manager come over to our table to say hello.

The atmosphere was bustling and energetic ,there was a good steady flow of drinks thanks to the attentive staff. The food was so good me and my friends wanted to finish everything but atiggled thanks to the large portion sizes.

Would definitely recommend the ribs and Oreo doughnuts are a must!

Will definitely be back in.

We thought we'd try a few more things on the menu today. Went for the Jambalaya which was tasty but such a small portion that I regretted ordering. Added the cornbread to compensate but this is so sweet that it was more like dessert. My dining partner tried to order the Beef Rib but they had a run on it so no go. Ordered the brisket which was a smaller portion than last week. Our waiter was sent home before we finished our meal. No communication regarding his departure. Will try again as we like this place but today was a bit of a disaster.

Blues Kitchen had a busy, fun, friendly vibe. Our waiter was lovely and attentive. Food was tasty. The only down side was no separation between the dining area and the bar and the music being so loud that it was impossible to hear each other.

The menu is nice and small and the burgers were out-of-this-world tasty!
Our server was super friendly too.
Will return another time when we’re not in a rush and can enjoy the live music

It’s a great place, nice food, decent cocktails but blimey do they pack them in on a Saturday night. The live music is brilliant but you can’t really dance as there’s no room.

The staff were fantastic - they were all really helpful, friendly and efficient. The food was good and the whiskey menu extensive. My only gripe would be the band only played one set.

On our to do list for sometime and finally our first time here. Exciting menu with some exemplary items. Of course we over ordered. Really hard not to but was a birthday meal so we did. Brisket burgers and Slabs of Brisket and chips were the order of the day. Huge portions and rather tasty food. Drinks too were quirky but good. Ox cheek starters were sublime. Planning our next visit but need a good excuse.

Really lovely evening with amazing food! Only criticism is that the waitress didn’t sing happy birthday to party member despite request made on booking and when confirming booking. This would’ve been the icing on cake.

Great atmosphere, great place to go with friends. Food and service was excellent. The only minor negative was the wine hadn't been chilled enough! Other than that, we loved it! Will visit again soon! :0)
