That day was my first time visiting and it was a huge surprise. The food and drink was classic, tasteful and enjoyable. It was an amazing and awesome place to go. A beautiful location indeed, i cherished this, and I'm going to recommend it to the rest of my friends.😁😁😁😁😁😁

This was a beautiful restaurant with beautiful surrounding but we sat in the bird cage and couldn’t read our menus without the torches of the phone. I’m all for ambience but not being able to read the menu in a restaurant is a little too much. Saying that the service was amazing and so was the food. We were not happy were we sat so got moved and the waitress for really nice and moved up straight away. Beautiful restaurant. Can’t wait to go back.

Our waitress was absolutely fantastic! She was really friendly and approachable! She couldn’t have been any more attentive to us and our drinks were refilled immediate.
The food was okay, our first course was just warm and could have been hotter, however it still tasted nice and the pancake were gorgeous!
My only issue was with the lady who was front of house, she wasn’t very warm or inviting, in fact she was quite blunt!
However overall a really pleasant environment! Amazing waitress!!!

After reading mixed reviews about Menagerie I was pleasantly surprised! The service and food was fabulous, and attention to detail was very much appreciated. It’s not everyday you get a firework on a bottle of wine. I will definitely be booking again and would love to try the bottomless brunch!

Was quite slow service and then wanted to kick off table when came to paying the bill after I had to wait over 30 minutes and ask three people for a glass of water. Expected better service and didn’t like being rushed after having to keep waiting for drinks etc so long.

It is one of the best restaurants which me and my friends have been to. The food and the atmosphere were both amazing. We stayed for a bit of the entertainment and myself and my friends were so impressed and loved it that we have recommended the restaurant to people we know. Our server Maia was really good and she made sure we were okay and kept checking on us to see if we needed anything.

We had been to the theatre and booked for a 10pm table. On arrival we were told the kitchen had closed and that the table we booked would only be for drinks. No apology or reasons why they have late tables on open table. Hugely disappointing

Steak was extremely fatty around the side which could have been cut off. Was meant to be 8oz rump but at least 1/4 of the steak was pure fat so I left it

The Rose wine was warm when it arrived at£50 a bottle you would expect it to be perfectly chilled
The food is just ok
Small plate : Tempura prawn over cooked
: Baes with duck dry
Main. : Pork dish very tough and dry
: Gourmet burger On a level with
Slightly above a posh/ classic Macdonalds burger
Drinks : very expensive but they are every we’re these days so if you are going to any city you must already know this , if not you do now
Entertainment : Different but good
Service : Service was good and although the food was pretty poor , we actually gave a £20 tip as the tips go to the staff
but then realised the service charge was already added but tipped the staff personally anyway
We made sure the tips went to the staff who like I said was good and even charged my phone for me .
Overall : Not in no rush to go back or likely to recommend to friends and family .

Second time here and really disappointed. The service was poor, our tea arrived late - everything seemed a hassle (the girl on the front desk however was amazing!!)

The presentation on the afternoon tea sandwiches was poor compared to my first experience at Menagerie, the scones were rock hard and the cake filling had curdled.

Not the best experience when surprising someone for their birthday.

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.

Absolutely brilliant afternoon. Amazing service from
Both the ladies looking after us for the afternoon. Didn’t feel rushed. Never looking around for servers to get drinks etc. Absolutely on it from start to finish. And the food, was lovely all 3 of us loved it all. One thing I would say is maybe some berries or fruit sauce to go with the french toast. It was good but couldn’t manage it because it was so sickly! Still a great afternoon and will absolutely be back! Thank you!
