Very incredible service; never left without a drink or an empty glass. Great bouncers, nice to chat to when waiting in the cold.
Atmosphere never disappoints!

We came for a drink in Gordon Bennetts as it was our anniversary and Gordon Bennetts is where we first met. The service was great and staff very friendly. What we didn't like was the group or rowdy youngsters sat upstairs across from us. A number of other patrons were looking their way as they also seemed to be disturbed by their noise level.

Hi Rachel, many thanks for taking the time to review. We are disappointed that you found the door staff 'rude and unhelpful.' It does come somewhat as a surprise when we have so many positive comments about our door staff who are working hard to keep people safe in a difficult climate. Please feel welcome to contact us with specific feedback if you wish to do so.

Had a great time as always, the table we were sat on wasn't great at first but we were able to move without any fuss and had a great time!

Outside seating wasn’t appropriate, asked for a table of 4 got metal barrels to sit on instead. Which we couldn’t even get on, so ended up standing for the 2 hours. Service was very poor, had wrong drinks given to us twice. Waiter was very rude and clearly didn’t have much training. Ordered x4 different Gins and couldn’t tell us which was which. Wouldn’t come here again

We are really shocked and sad to see this review however we will definitely take this on board and work hard to improve. Usually we would hope to hear about a problem at the time and we would try to resolve it straight away so apologies that this was not possible as reading this review is the first we have heard about the issues. This was the first Saturday after reopening and whist we had many positive comments this is not the service we expect to provide, we will address it. All the best.
