    Delicious cocktails but very slow service so did not pay service charge. Did not appreciate having to pay for first round of drinks when we said we would be having a few, felt a little profiled! Better places to go in the area.

    Lovely bar in a great London location. The signature cocktails are too sweet and over priced. The vodka martini was excellent. Sadly the vegetarian canapés were uninspiring and we do not eat potatoes or cream vol au vents !🥲 The champagne glass was way over priced !! The DJ did not play recognisable dance tunes? Overall there was no new Year celebration or festive vibe. When the bar crew had cheers - it was a sweet moment. Overall poor customer experience in a hotel with no warmth or genuine customer care. Very unusual in an environment where most of the staff - bar, security and DJ were women!!!

    Hello, this was absolutely awful I was sitting next to a cold door in the middle of December. You kept opening it. This section of the bar should be shut during this time of year. I don’t understand how you can charge £60 for a bottle of wine and expect me to pay it next Door and you gave me the wrong bill and overcharged me bye £70. I will be returning return

    Such a beautiful bar but why start pumping disco music at 7:30pm. You couldn’t even speak to the person sat right next to you. We left and went to the EditionI understand it at 11pm but for pre-dinner drinks it is not necessary.

    We were told our first cocktails were complimentary, then having drunk them were told they were not and it was a mistake and not meant for our table. We ordered some wine and having waited 20 minutes for it had to cancel as we were leaving soon for our diner reservation, poor service and no apology

    Thanks for a great experience. Great cocktails and food at the bar. I did leave a note that it was my boyfriends birthday, but they did nothing. Last time I was there they brought out a cake for my brother and sisters birthday. Still love coming here.

    Had a lovely evening but had a shock when the bill came! I love a vodka martini and know it can be expensive in a place like this but they charged £12 for the vodka and £6 for the vermouth instead of an overall charge for the cocktail. £18 is pretty steep in anyone’s book, especially as we’d just had one at the Charlotte’s Street Hotel which is very pricey but actually much cheaper!! The staff were fab though :-)

    I went with 3 friends for cocktails at the Long Bar before going out for a Michelin dinner. Was first disappointed that we were not seated in the bar and had to go outside at the terrace. However turned out the terrace was nicely heated and actually quite cozy and also got an excellent service out there. The cocktails were really nice although a bit small. Would go back.

    Excellent. Great cocktails and the food was delicious. We ordered from the nibbles section as we weren't overly hungry. Good selection of virgin cocktails too if you're that way inclined. Not cheap, but worth the expense. Highly recommended.

    I visited the Long Bar for cocktails with my family. The drinks were amazing, lots of original cocktails to try and a good mix of flavours. The terrace is beautiful. Watch out for the 15% service charge though. For a couple of cocktails I thought this was very steep.

    The service was good the only disappointment was that 2 sets of chips were ordered, but salad was bought out and had to be sent back by the time the chips came the burger was cold and there was no mention of a discount or anything. As it was there error something should have been done
