I didn’t eat but it won’t let you move on without eating the food (it looked good). Lovely bar, great cocktails, good service. Jazz duo playing also very good but just a little too loud!

great service, live music, and to great nibbles to accompany the cocktails (excellent Fire smoked almonds :) ). Only rated food good as a mandatory rating field although we didn't eat.

Would have rated ambience higher but there was something I couldn't put my finger on about the feel of the bar. It may have been that the expanse of bare light floor tiles just didn't seem in keep with the rest of the plush dark velvet, art deco, and wood interior.... Looked to clinical.

Quite small and secluded but really nice atmosphere. Very classy and waiter (Abel) was great as there was little variety of rum cocktails so made us our very own kind. A bit pricey but worth it as excellent service. Perfect for date night.

Was very disappointing to find out when we arrived that there were no heaters and small tables were just placed on a pavement with some chairs and umbrellas which didn’t seem to have protect from the rain. Disappointed as it was for my husband’s special birthday

Absolutely excellent service. Could not fault. Very impressed indeed. Look forward to visiting indoors after reopening.

Expensive but decent value for money. Great vibe considering location.

Food needs to be hotter. But very nice nonetheless. Would recommend 100% go to after reopening.

The staff at the Cafe Royal are superlative. Friendly, elegant, efficient. And the food is wonderful. The outdoor area (due to Covid restrictions) was beautifully set up, with soft, warm blankets for the cold. We had a brilliant meal.

The idea of putting the bar outside is good, however the cocktail menu is poor and there are no heaters. The cocktails that we did choose didn’t seem good value for the price paid.

Great service but food and drinks were on cold side otherwise sandwiches and lattes were very tasty. The table for four was far too low down and small.

Food and service were really good. However, it was a bit cold for the outdoor seating. We were seated at a 2-seat table but the table was quite long so it was a bit Difficult to have a private conversation

Staff very attentive. Unfortunately weather wasn’t great but the staff did everything they could to prevent us getting cold and wet! Heaters would be a good addition, blankets were fabulous. The food was out of this world! We will definitely return to eat and drink inside once fully open. Thankyou

Freezing cold - no heaters and the terrace is in the shade. Food good but massively overpriced and service appallingly rude. We asked for another glass of wine and they said no because The table was rebooked in 15 mins! We had to beg for it and drink within 15 mins - left and half an hour later the table was still empty. Will never go back again.

Lovely meal - menu was perfect for the setting. Was a little cold, but no problem they had blankets on hand for everyone. Service was discreet, but they always were on hand when you needed anything. We had a bottle of champagne as a special celebration. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Would help with just 1 savoury/netural tasting item with the cakes and bubbles , as felt it was a bit of sugar overload.

Waiter was excellent, recommend the club sandwich, good portion and filling was decent. Fries were a bit cold though. Very quiet and peaceful, recommend a visit for everyday dining or a small lunch.

In shade no heaters despite blankets it was freezing. Food got cold immediately. Not so pleasant. They are waiting for a licence for heaters. Some music of some kind to add ambience / distract would have been nice.

I was expecting a decent terrace area but it was just a poorly cordoned off area of the pavement. The weather was freezing cold and there was no heaters. Really poor show and a bit of a rip off.

Outside seating is in a shaded area so wear layers!

Lovely seats with blankets, but no heaters.

If you’re looking to book this venue as an outdoor option, I would avoid given the vast alternatives in the vicinity. For the price paid, the service wasn’t up to standard. This space offers no heaters which isn’t ideal either.
