We had a lovely lunch in Cinnabar. The food was delicious all brought in great time. We were not rushed and the service off staff is exemplary. We will definitely go back. I love the relaxed atmosphere.

Food is lovely it comes up a little dearer by the time you add your drink also I wasn't aware of the service charge but I would recommend as a nice treat now and then

Great brunch, had the bubble and squeak with bacon and poached eggs and added a fantastic sausage to the side😝 well cooked and red hot. Loved it😍 The wife had the same with an equally great reaction.

We also had a cheeky Bloody Mary and a breakfast Bellini, both of these were very good and the perfect start to our wedding anniversary day out!

Cinnabar was not as full as usual, seated straight away, drinks were delivered fairly quick but I then had to ask nearly 1/2 hour later if they would take our food orders which they did, food as good as ever,if I was in a hurry I would not have waited not their normal slick service.

Really happy with our trip to cinnabar! I was impressed with their gluten free range (pizza and pasta was able to be made gluten free), and the gluten free pizza we had was delicious! One of the best gluten free pizzas that I have had. Also Had a few tapas plates that were delicious, and cocktails were on happy hour and tasted great. Service was quick and the staff were friendly. We will definitely be back!

Great as always although on this particular occasion felt a little rushed than normal - it was Father’s Day. However it did not spoil the occasion/our experience.

Always an amazing experience here. I was here on Saturday evening with friends having a few drinks which was really enjoyable. Also the wife and i went here on Monday morning for breakfast which was spot in as always! I had big breakfast with nice flat white and wife had something healthy with delicious white choc mocha. Recommend this place for breakfast or drinks to anyone, really nice atmosphere, service & quality food etc....

Great place, great food only let down by the waiters being slightly disorganised, it didn't seem like we had one dedicated waiter so we got asked evrything twice (are you ready to order, have you ordered drink, can I get you more drinks) etc all x 2.
Also knocked a star off for the plastic straws in 3 drinks, they weren't optional, they were already in our drinks so we couldn't even decline. I expected such a chic venue to be following the trend and important environmental point of ditching single use plastic.

I did order a coffee which didn’t arrive. Standard and large Breakfast were nicely presented and good however the bacon was hard and over cooked for most of us. My poached eggs were hard and Imlike them runny. There was also a charge of 10% on the bill for 5 of us which did not state optional thus I didn’t question it at the time but looking afterwards on line noticed it was stated as optional!
I wouldn’t rush back there, quite expensive.

Quick, friendly service. Food was okay, ordered some poached eggs and they were very tiny and a bit overcooked. However still good for brunch in the area.

A terrible range of food for mother's day. Mocktails too sugary to drink, a 15 pound Caesar's Salad without dressing, a 90 minute wait for food. I feel the food pictures were really misleading, and the experience affected my mum's day.

Excellent food. Efficiently and friendly service. Only issue was no smoothies as machines broken. This is second time this has been the case. Not enough to put us of going again

Overall our evening was a bit of a disaster - Our starters and mains were brought to the table at the same time. 2 of our group had spaghetti as part of their main which was barely warm and looked like it was out of a tin (we did complain and the price of their meals was deducted from the bill) The Eton Mess consisted of 95% cream and then we were accused of not paying enough money for the bill! The waitress said we had paid £5 short when we knew that it was all there when we handed it over. We'd had enough by this point and handed another £5 over only for the waitress to return after about 10 minutes saying that she had found our missing £5. We were also constantly being asked if we wanted more drinks and had to clear the tab by 10pm presumably so that the waitress could go home. Won't be rushing back!

Have been a few times for brunch and is excellent value for money. The food is freshly cooked and amazing. Good vibe about the place and is extremely cosy - nothing is too much trouble. Staff are very attentive.

We go there for breakfast every now and again. Superb breakfast menu all cooked to order with attentive staff who offer a good welcome each time. Always busy for breakfast so advisable to book. Not eaten lunch or dinner there but it seems a popular place so will try it one evening.

Our booking was cancelled by the restaurant 40 minutes before arriving, to accommodate “Christmas bookings”. Yet our booking was for a Christmas booking and booked at least a week in advance. The staff member that called couldn’t care less and we couldn’t find anywhere else at such short notice. Very poor!

We did have to wait for 40 mins for our breakfast which I think they did forget about us as everyone else around us who I may add did order after us and they were getting there’s but they didn’t admit they forgot about us. Our drinks were all finished by then and they didn’t offer us a drink to apologise to go with our breakfast. But other than that we enjoyed it.
