Met with friends before they start a new term back at work tomorrow.
Lovely drinks, great service and friendly staff. The olives 🫒 were scrumptious.
Really good place to meet up at teatime for alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks and nibbles.

A little disappointed at having to move tables after being shown to a table of four where we sat for 90 mins of our 120 min slot
To ta le next to the toilet door
Food nor as fresh as usual
However cocktails as good as ever but service not as spot an as when pong lad h in big jacket normally on , we missed her
Still the best cocktails and best value in town and will be back very soon

Thanks for your review Cathy, Frustrating about having to move tables. We accidentally sat you at the wrong table for your time. There was another table of 8 that had both of those tables booked at 8. I've made a note on our system to seat you away from the entrance to the toilets for future bookings. Food wise I can only apologise, we buy fresh every day for service so I'm unsure why your food wasn't to our usual standard. Look forward to your next visit!

Movie Night - what a great idea for a mid-week get together with friends. We had some lovely nachos and amazing cocktails. The atmosphere was chilled and staff friendly.

We had a good night in the bar the drinks we're good but I'm afraid I must give the service a thumb down as it was extremely slow service and had to ask where our drinks wee a few times

The Black Door
Responded on 2 August 2021

Hi Christopher, thanks for your review. I'm not sure if you was made aware but we notified guests that there might be a delay for drinks as we had 3 members of staff missing and we are already short staffed. The entire sector is currently struggling and we are no different. You can probably see from our reviews that our service is usually exemplary, this is very much a situation which was beyond our control on this evening. We hope you visit again and give us another chance.

Excellent atmosphere, drinks and service. The charcuterie board could do with more oils and meat to match the amount of bread served.

Lovely Sunday brunch , great ambiance. Would say the portion size of the charcuterie board could have been bigger, and balsamic oil and butter would have been nice. Drinks were lovely.

Responded on 16 August 2021

Hi Linda, butter is now stocked if people would like it and we have a balsamic glaze for the oils if you so wish! Thank you for the feedback and we will always try to improve what we do. Regards, Jarek.

We went to The Black Door for a pre Fathers Day and pre my birthday drinks. We weren’t disappointed. Gorgeous cocktails, beers and hot chocolate! Lovely meat board with bread, oils and olives. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff and a relaxing atmosphere. We love this place. I’m looking forward to visiting again - both in the day and in the evening.

After over a year of isolating my parents were well ready for an afternoon out, so we went to The Black Door for beer, cocktails and coffee. It was a lovely experience and all of us enjoyed the drinks. My dad is a young 80 year old and tried the peach beer and it’s now his favourite. My mum and I had the non-alcoholic cocktails, coffee and hot chocolate with toasted marshmallow-all gorgeous. The atmosphere was relaxing and friendly. The staff were attentive and knowledgable. My mum is in a wheelchair and nothing was too much trouble. We shall visit again.

Cocktails are beautiful! I felt they are quite expensive, it would be nice to see a happy hour for maybe buy one get one free or something to that effect on certain days, but the cocktails were gorgeous.
Disappointed we didn’t get to try the food, we came on a Saturday and a book with the provisor we would be having like a graze board style food which I even messaged prior to our visit to check this was the case which I was told it was still on offer and we could order at our visit. However, when we got there we were told they were not serving food which was disappointing as we were starving and went thinking we were going to eat and drink. Other than that it was a nice experience.
