We booked a table for 4.30 and the music was deafening! We could not hear ourselves speak. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful. I feel the food is very expensive for what you get. It was nice except for one meal which should have been a medium steak and it was extremely well done. The waitress did apologise and exchanged it but by the time the replacement arrived the rest of us had finished.
Our experience could definitely have been improved by music being a little quieter and the food prices being a little more reasonable. Also, I do feel £11.00 for a pornstar martini when you are dining is a little over the top.

- Food was faultless
- Waiters and staff were friendly and polite; very much made us feel comfortable and at ease.
- The environment for dinner was not appropriate, the entertainment provided would have been much more suited to a bar for drinking purposes only.
- The wait time between small plates and mains was longer than the usual time you would expect, and even after the waiter identified this, no compensation was given.
- Overall, the food was exceptional but we would not return on the basis of the environment for a restaurant showcased as something bordering on fine dining.

The staff is always super friendly and kind, the food was great and definitely well priced, the cocktails were amazing.....we were just a little disappointed because we wanted to have high tea and you need to order it 24hr in advance which wasn’t that obvious on the website.

Amazing food, really delicious! Nice atmosphere, but lots of empty tables considering we struggled to book? Also, drinks are overpriced - could be lowered by a few pounds each, easily.

Heard good things about the afternoon tea, the food was brill, service good, although slow to get the servers attention.

What let it down was the little things, everything looked worn. Chipped crockery is just a no go for me, seems like everything needs chucking and starting a fresh!!

It was a great venue and would work well for hens parties/baby showers. The food was a let down though and quite over priced for the tiny portions. The service also became slow as the place got busier.

Food was good, our waiter was very attentive. The atmosphere was quite good there were different acts on ie dancers and a fire eater.
Only really got 2 small complaints, firstly I was asked for a £15 per person deposit at time of booking understandable if was xmas but not in September and I had to ask for it to be taken off the bill.
Secondly the door staff should be better trained it was like trying to get into a club in the 90s as a group of lads where they just stand in your way, sort yourselves out guys btw it was a birthday meal for my partner and we're both 50 so very unlikely to cause trouble.

Went for my birthday meal with mum and auntie, i was expecting it to be better than it was the interior looks a little tired, all the leather seats in the booths have rips in them which makes it look very tatty, and all the seating had stains on the chairs which again makes it look tatty, the food was lovely and the waiter was great, it def needs a little upgrade in places and then would be great.

Initially they squeezed 5 of us on a 4 person table, but were moved to more suitable seating/table on request.
Food was amazing, service was fabulous.
The performances were ok, could do better myself as a pole instructor.
Would definitely go again

Booked my and my sisters birthday didn’t no i had to pay a £15 per person deposit when i booked but still did would have just loved to know beforehand rather than being set a text saying i needed to pay it within 48hours food was really nice and our table was amazing how every was right near the bar and once the bar got busy everyone was watching us eating and standing around our table which was not nice service was ok but our waitress did forget about us this maybe just because she was busy or couldn’t get too us asked for a birthday plate which they totally forgot about was just a little bit disappointed overall but the food was amazing

Overall my daughter and her friend enjoyed their meal but they were made to feel like second class citizens from the minute they entered the restaurant by the front of house team and also the doormen. I had booked a table for 6, 15 year old girls for my daughters birthday. On reading the T's the table would be reserved until 6.30pm and they had to be out of the restaurant by 7pm. I booked the table for 5pm. I dropped my daughter off along with 2 of her friends at 4.45pm. They were advised that the table wasn't ready for them but were not given anywhere to sit or stand whilst they waited for the table; nor were they offered drinks whilst they were waiting. They were rather rudely told to move from where they were stood as they were causing a fire hazard. They were finally shown to their table at 5.10pm. The table service was good and the girls enjoyed their mocktails and meals overall. The Chicken Caesar salad was a let down as the chicken was dry and overcooked; but all other dishes we well received.
Overall, I am very disappointed that my daughter was made to feel like she didn't have a right to dine at Menagerie. If you do not want to host under 18's then don't. Do not however take money off 15 year old's like any other paying customer but treat them inferior to others.

I was very disappointed with this place. On social media the place looked amazing. However the whole ambience, service and food was very disappointing. We couldn’t hear ourselves talk.

We had an amazing experience at Menagerie. The food, ambience, music and service cannot be faulted and the aesthetic of the restaurant was beautiful. We would definitely recommend going to Menagerie - so worth it!
