The service was impeccable. The range of the food wasn’t amazing. Chicken was bland , fries were overcooked and almost burnt. Mac and cheese was excellent cocktails excellent photo area excellent. Noise too much

The food was really nice and our server Jas was really efficient. Although food did take a while to come and they were not really filled to capacity. Other than that would definitely go back again if not for the food just for the pictures lol

The food was really good and the place is so pretty a pink. The only downside would be they forgot to take our order and when we did they said the kitchen was closing in 5 mins. Yikes. I’m sure it was just a honest mistake because the staff are so nice and we still got out food!!! However, this is my second time going and when I came here the first time I LOVED IT!

Ordered a vaccine cocktail and came to realise AFTER finishing the drink that the raspberry inside had a chunk of mould on it. This was brought to staff and was given a refund for that one drink.

Food was nice however think it’s a bit pricy cocktails were definitely pricey for what they were. Could do with some heaters as was cold. Food took a while to come out and was not hot was warm. They forgot prawns on seafood basket had to request them. Not sure I would return. The pink decor is nice though

HONEST REVIEW IS DONT GO OFF REVIEWS!!!! my experience was good,I was late by half hour they still gave me my table,ALL staff was polite,food was quick,it was HOT when it came out but did go cold after a short while but i blame that on sitting outside in the cold IT IS WAS NOT 202’s fault!!!!! The photo area is CUTEEEEEE i love it everything’s girly and pink💞 i do feel like the food is a lil over priced but your not only paying for the food your paying for the scenery and area kinda thing. 10/10 recommend the vibes are unmatched

The experience wasn’t very pleasant. They need to revisit their menu because people shouldn’t be forced to eat sea food. If I order a rib box I should have the option not to have prawns without being charged for them.

Great atmosphere and loved the design of the place we felt welcomed and food and drink arrived very fast only issue was that the menu only had one vegetarian/vegan option and as a group of 3/4 vegans it was a bit of a let down but overall great ! Enjoyed the time we spent there :) would come again!

Rang to make restaurant aware we would be 5 minutes late, to arrive and the kitchen be closed. Granted it was an electrical fault but surely they could make guests aware before the booking takes place. Staff were extremely rude and messed up our bill 3 times

The food was delicious and its a lovely place to go however no one really came to check on us with the food and it was like we were forgotten about when it came to ordering drinks. Not only this but part of the food came out and then we had finished eating it when the sides came out. I could understand if it was extremely busy but it wasn’t

The food and drinks were really nice, can’t fault that atall. Good service and staff were very polite. Although I don’t feel like the prices for the food and drinks can be justified, slightly pricey. Very nice areas/props to take photos ect.

We were really excited to go here as we had seen it on Instagram and thought it looked really cool but we waited 20 minutes just to get our drinks order in, no one even came over we had to ask them to come over. My friend ordered pancakes when we ordered the drinks, these took about 5 mins to come where as the drinks came 20 mins later.. so in total we waited 40 mins for 3 cocktails! I asked where the cocktails were as we had been waiting ages and the girl just said 2 seconds.. no one even apologised to us. I would have understood if it was busy but there was about 5 tables and loads of staff just walking around doing nothing.. some of them were just on their phones! So overall I thought the service was awful.. I wouldn’t normally be one to comment because I work in bars and I know what it’s like but 40 mins for a drink.. shocking! As soon as I stood up to ask for the bill that came straight away though!

upon arrival we were told to do track and trace and put masks on, we were shown to our table. the menus were very confusing and once we asked for them to be explained we were told that their is only one burger of choice and out of the ‘box’ meals nothing could be altered, after ordering we went to the bathroom which was very messy and unpleasant, considering covid is upon us it was very uncomfortable to use . staff are a bit stuck up and just stand around talking , they forgot to give us cutlery and after waiting for 5 minutes i just went and got it myself .. disappointed to say the least . the girl who brought our food was lovely tho as she helped as my burger was undercooked so she swapped it for another however they seem to undercook all the burgers !

Beautiful pink pastel decoration for the perfect Instagram post.

Food: The Mac n Cheese was amazing but the rest was average.
The burger tasted average with cold buns but it’s pink so you could post the perfect burger picture :/
You can drizzle gold on almost anything on the menu.

Music: Hip hop and RnB vibes

Guest: vibrant and colourful crowd. Ladies outnumber men 5 to 1.

Drinks: cocktails taste ok. Poor aesthetic for the price tag and a place thriving for its aesthetics. The cocktails aren’t shaken or stirred so you have patches of warmth and alcohol floating.

Maybe worth a visit. Book the swings outside for the perfect table!

Arrived and wasnt aloud to be let in because my partner was wearing an offwhite nike tracksuit they said no tracksuits aloud after 6 which was not mentioned online , on the booking notes or confirmation text that there was a dresscode at certain times. People was complaining about food already when i entered saying the waffle was stiff and dry. Another couple sat next to me and ordered the food cane out within 10 mins and looks warmed up i left and saved my money id rather eat mc donalds than that

They forgot to put our order through to the kitchen so we waited almost 2 hours for our food, although when it did come it was very nice, the food is lovely, the manager did rectify the wait by big discount however it did put a dampener on the evening as it got very cold with only one heater outside and we was absolutely starving. Some of the staff looked very moody, service with a smile goes a long way!

Food is terrible, over priced and took 50 mins to come out. Tasted so bad, should’ve gone to maccies instead. Full of people trying to desperately look cooler than the person next to them. If Instagram was a place, this would be it! Don’t waste your money, if I could give it less than 1/10 I would. A shame as I was really looking forward to the food and atmosphere.

Food is great, a nice kick to it. Lots of dolled up young customers (some dressed like they are in ibiza), but we have been locked at home for over a year so why not!
The place is crazily pink!
I would go back again, just wish all the customers would wear their masks to their table rather than worrying about smudging thier make up

Excellent facilities to eat outdoor even during bad weather. Food doesn’t appear to be mass produced and feels like it is cooked to order which is great. Desserts are excellent and chef is very talented and has a great personality.

Love it here. Lovely atmosphere. Every song they play is a banger. Food is 100% overpriced but I suppose for the decoration, ambiance, music etc of everything you really pay for THAT. Would recommend to anyone who fancied a girly night out or to take lots of pics x

I love the environment but it was expensive for the food you get. We were left waiting for 10 minutes without cutlery after food arrived and one meal took a further 5 minutes to arrive.

Really bad service apart from our waitress Caitlyn. We waited over 2 hours for 4 sides and only got 3/4 of these after complaining numerous times and they were served cold. We did get some free drinks and a discount on the bill which was a nice gesture but overall a pretty awful experience. If it wasn't for Caitlyn who was our server we would not have felt any kind of good customer service... the manager didn't even bother to apologise and the other staff were beyond dismissive when we asked about our food. I can understand things are busy at the moment but to wait over 2 hours for 2 portions of fries, some prawns and mac and cheese is a bit of a joke.
