Came here for brunch with some friends, and the food was brilliant. The staff were very friendly and the service was fast but we didn't feel rushed.

Food was great but we were made to feel like we were under pressure to order and eat quickly and then leave. Every time our waiter came over he kept reminding us we only had the table for a certain time and would stand there constantly until we decided our orders. It was pressurising, unfriendly and just made everything rushed and awkward.

The food wasn’t as good as we’ve had on previous visits to this and other Blues kitchens. Unfortunately the Brisket was quite dry and for some reason they no longer serve burnt ends which was the best thing on the menu! Other than that the rest of the food was ok. They need to up their game though.

Attended for my birthday, although the booking form asked if it was an occasion it was not marked in any way. That aside the waitress that took care of us was brilliant, the food was good and arrived in a timely fashion. The music was absolutely brilliant. I’m an old boy now, but I would definitely go back. Overall a vibrant eating and music venue. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Lovey atmosphere and service! The food was nice but some of it was cold or room temperature, such as the poached eggs on the avocado on toast, by the time we got it. Had the French Toast which was lovely, nice touch with the cornflakes, just wish there were more blueberries on top as the ones inside became slightly soft due to being heated. Overall would recommend and had a lovely time

I love the place, the atmosphere is vibrant and fun. We had dinner on a saturday followed by drinks and live gig upstairs. The crowd is fun and the vibe is positive.

I have visited the restaurant twice now and both times have been great! The service was prompt, servers were friendly and asked about Food intolerance and allergies (which I have) which was excellent 🙏.

The only problem was that I left with a headache this time round, happy to see people enjoying themselves but it was a bit roudy and the music was extra loud (to drown out the load screams). That said the food and servers were top quality, I will defo be back.

Thanks!

Bustling but atmospheric American diner, good breakfast selection with an option for bottomless prosecco (perhaps a bit expensive). Also enjoy the rib deals and the beer. Would recommend.

I would not recommend Blues Kitchen for dinner. It is impossible loud to have dinner. For meeting friends and having fun its ok.

A really nice venue with a great choice of drinks ranging from spirits to cocktails. We had a a fabulous host who tried to really accommodate our needs but unfortunately the food failed to live up to the hype. Our starters were nice but our mains were disappointing as my beef brisket was 30% meat and 70% fat. Will definitely still give this place another try and hopefully next time the food will match up to the rest of our experience

Really tasty food and great staff. Half price Tuesdays are the best, followed by rib night Monday. The cocktails are good too and if there's nothing on the set menu, they're happy to make you something based on your tastes.

Took the kids for Sunday dinner. Food was excellent (as always) and the service could not have been better. The adults and kids were all well cared for.
