Hi
A friend and I had lunch at The Bluebird in Saturday. It was a brunch menu. We both ordered the kedegree. Such a small portion, probably small if it was a starter - although it wasn't! Not much fish in the food at all and it all tasted pretty bland sorry to say! For £12 it wasn't good value at all! I had a non alcoholic drink which was literally some sort of cordial with lime? Not expensive ingredients;!!!! It came in the smallest glass filled to brim with crushed ice so not sure where the actual drink was located!!? ...Lastly it was quite cold in the restaurant and although I mentioned this to the waitress she just replied it would 'warm up once more people were in the room???!!!' I was cold the whole meal...One positive is that the reception staff were friendly and waitress reasonable service!!!!

A girlfriend and I went to Bluebird for lunch on Monday, and it was very quiet. Food was delicious, but a bit pricey for what we got. It's ages since I've been, so maybe I'm living in the past

Food was great. Waiters seemed ok, but couldn’t really hear them. Overall though it felt like having dinner in a nightclub...but that may have been because it was Saturday night. Couldn’t hear anything

Bluebird is always fabulous. We have been dining here for about 30 years and have yet to be disappointed.
It is always a treat. They have special offers, 2 /3 courses GBP 20/25 forr lunch and early evening. Great value.

Thoroughly enjoyed the food - tuna tartare and the slow cooked pork shoulder were both absolutely excellent. We did however have a very inexperienced wine waiter who didn't get all the cork (it happens), and then pushed the rest of the cork into the bottle with the end of his cork screw (under no circumstances should this happen!).

I had been before. A few years ago. It was sad decor and mediocre food that time. Fast forward to present day......what a pleasant surprise. Decor A+ and food A. I was very happy overall (service is adequate but could be better). I look forward to going again next year. We visit London twice a year and have our list of “must go to” restaurants and Bluebird has made the list.

Fantastic food but everything else was awful. I've been eating at the Bluebird for well over a decade but never will again.
Intrusive service, wrong menus, mistakes on the bill and filthy loos made for a regrettable evening.
The on duty manager compounded things by insisting on dealing with the only man at the table rather than myself, who had raised the issues and was hosting the dinner.
This went as far as letting my male guest succeed in paying the bill against my express wish. This kind of sexism is a disgrace and ridiculously out of date. Have a serious word with yourself Bluebird.

I always go there for dinner and love it. This time was for tea and the place was almost empty. Would be nice if there is a section selected for tea where one doesn’t have to go through the empty place to reach the section.
Also the scones were dry and not fresh. The sandwiches were ok and the sponge cake dry and old too
I thought it was overpriced for that. It would have been ok if the food was delicious. Like your dinners
Teapot arrived not hot enough

Good atmosphere, very vibrant crowd. Burger was very good. Cocktails very tasty. However, I received terrible service on this occasion - lack of attention, snobby, and incompetent. To be fair, I have been here before for cocktails alone, which was fine at the bar.
