Went here to celebrate my Dad's birthday. Service couldn't be faulted - food was delicious and perfectly cooked. Cosy atmosphere and lovely and warm - which considered the size of the same was a lovely surprise.
Would definitely recommend. Thank you.

Overall - very nice. However, one of our party had hearing aids and music was too loud and spoiled his experience. Plates cold and food not hot - just warm. Real shame as food was very tasty. Lovely servers.

The starter was very good (fish platter) but the main course my wife ordered did not contain any of the veg listed on the menu. And the chef apparently was unaware of what veg accompanied the chicken supreme dish.

Food was delicious and came out hot. We ordered drinks and our meal came out before our drinks. They forgot outlets order twice. But the staff were very friendly. Not busy in there when we went, so need to be more alert to the tables order's. Enjoyed our evening and would definitely go back again.

Visited Sunday 26th September, had a table booked for 6pm but got that a little earlier to take advantage of their advertised 50% drinks. We ordered one round of drinks which were part of the deal, when the waitress came to ask if we wanted more drinks before the deal finished we naturally said yes. However both the drinks my partner and I wanted were no longer available so the waitress offered us alternative choices. Disappointingly we were failed to be informed that the alternative drinks weren't part of the deal. We subsequently ordered a third round yet again not being informed out alternative choices weren't part of the deal.
I appreciate companies are having supply difficulties however if you are offering deals such as 50%off it should be made aware to you that the alternatives you are given are NOT part of the offer.
We have been to Bakers Bar numerous times but this visit left us both feeling rather frustrated and disappointed by the lack of communication from staff.

Hi Charlotte, i'm sorry that you thought Sunday roasts were back on at the time of your visit, we took them off throughout the summer and they returned at the end of September. I'm glad you enjoyed the service though and hopefully we will see you again soon. Kat

I'm a regular to Bakers Bar. Sitting on the decking overlooking the boats and water is just like being on holiday in the Med. On top of that the food is good and the staff are always friendly and willing to help. I also like the fact they welcome dogs. This lunch visit was to watch the aircraft carrier leaving - fantastic location for it.

The main course was very average.
The chocolate brownie was extre,ely tiny and very poor value for money, no more than three mouthfuls! So much so that this was removed from our bill.
But the worst part was the service, the staff are very poorly trained, unattentive and very little knowledge of the menu they are serving.
It may be a personal thing but I object to being addressed as "you guys" and called "my lovely"

Overall a huge disappointment for our first visit.

Hello,

I brought my parents abs boyfriend here for a special meal and was sadly disappointed. The staff were lovely, however lack of staff meant very slow service, empty glasses filled up our table so we had to move them onto the next empty table, waited 20minutes for a drink and staff walked off very quickly before you could ask them something. However saying that they are lovely and very friendly, I believe lack of management. The staff are very accommodating and would have done anything to make our experience the best it could be.
The food unfortunately was very bland and also over done.
A lot on the menu had sold out, meaning we had less to choose from.
We ordered the sharing deli board and Camembert sharer but was then told it has sold out. We decided to replace it with king prawns and the garlic bread.
The garlic bread was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious, however we had to send the king prawns back due to the lack of presentation and appearance. The Alioli was pea size, sourdough burnt, prawns dry/undercooked and someone had tipped a bag of rocket over the top. Very disappointed with this.
The sharer board was nice but for the price of it wouldn’t order it again.
Our mains come out at the same time which was nice and was very hot. However the meat on all courses were over cooked and I felt my salmon had been reheated in the microwave.
I don’t want this review to sound all bad because the restaurant was lovely, the decor is beautiful and the staff made the place, just the food and lack of service let it down.
We decided to not have a pudding due to the disappointment in the last two courses and unfortunately wouldn’t come back again.

Kind Regards,

Beth

Disappointed. On arrival the noise level was unbearable, we weren’t aware they had a sports bar showing live football. We ate upstairs, marginally quieter. Waited 20 minutes for our drinks. We did book, but had no idea that the upstairs eating area was accessed via a steep spiral metal staircase, so not suitable for anyone with a mobility disability. The food was ok, although one of our group was very disappointed in his steak. The staff were really nice and friendly, the main positive to the evening. I felt that the poor girl serving us was embarrassed that everything took so long to arrive.

HI JennyS, I'm sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with your visit. We are a sports bar and so do play sporting games live so our lovely patrons can watch/listen to them. I'm also sorry to hear about your friends steak - I will make sure to pass on your feedback to the kitchen, and I'll be sure to pass on timing issues to the staff. We always do our best and obviously want everyone who visits us to leave happy so hopefully on your next visit you'll enjoy your experience. Many thanks, Kate
