Hello friends of dAt bAr. We have taken the difficult, but necessary decision to close our kitchen effective immediately. To comply with insurance requirements, we must install a new fire suppression system. Until this work is complete, the kitchen must remain closed, our bar however continues to remain OPEN and we look forward to serving you from our great selection of craft beers, wine and cocktails.

    I didn't know what to expect as I haven't been to this restaurant before. I was pleasantly surprised. Eeveryone was so friendly and attentive. The beers and wines available was great and there was a comprehensive menu, which had something for everyone. I loved my mozzarella and sun-dried tomatoes bruschetta - very fresh and a generous size. The pizzas were large, and great fluffy crusts with a generous topping. Didn't manage to finish mine though as I was stuffed (didn't stop me trying!). Will definitely come back. If you want a relaxed meal with great food and drink this is a great place!

    Fabulous pizza as always. Bruschetta was actually garlic bread, which was unexpected. Arancini and all pizzas were great. Good choice of drinks, and friendly attentive service. Some odd choices of music - so loud we asked for it to be turned down. You don’t need to have shouted conversations at 5.30 teatime. But staff obliged and all was well.

    Was asked if I wanted skinny or chunky chips with my burger. I asked for chunky. The bill came and it was £12 for the burger and another £4.50 for the chips. Definitely wasn't worth £16.50. The order of olives was returned since they were awful. Bill came to £50. Food quality meant it was worth nowhere near this. I can understand why tables are available at Datbar on a Saturday evening and not elsewhere. The service from the front of house staff was good.

    Noisy and lively bar which is not adequately separated from the dining area. Burgers are served on their own with chips costing an extra £4.50 which the staff should be making clear at the time of ordering. Nice food but didn't enjoy the busy atmosphere.

    We arrived for our table booking and had to wait in a queue to get to the door host, which was fine When we were finally seated we were given one menu between two people, and again we made our peace with that. We waited at least 15 minutes before managing to attract the attention of a staff member to take our order, by which time we had decided on drinks as well as food. We also ordered tap water for the table, which never arrived. The food came promptly but the burger was burnt, and there was a wait between meals being delivered to our table too, meaning that one of us was eating whilst the other was still waiting for our food. In this time someone checked to make sure everything was okay for us. When the food was delivered we asked for some more drinks and the staff member walked away before we were finished ordering. We paid almost £60 for this experience, including the automatically added service charge. Our experience of being ignored, being walked away from, and eating burnt food was not worth this money.

    On arrival the 2 waiting staff at the desk didn't even look up to greet us, after waiting 40 mins for our starters (bruschetta) the bread hadn't even been toasted, the server this was pointed out to clearly didn't care, the mains (dat burger & sweet potato mac n cheese) were inedible, all in all the the food was terrible and the service continued to be otrocious throughout the night.
