Our 1st visit and it was lovely!
The staff were attentive, friendly and welcoming. The drinks were very nice and there was a lot of choice.
Love the decor it’s clear to see a lot of time & effort has gone in, it’s perfect.
Can’t wait to visit again!

Lovely place and lovely cocktails, we thought at a fair price, good service and lovely staff, would have liked a sharing plate but they’d run out of food so a bit disappointed with that, all in all had a great night👍

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.

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.

First time here and they had ran out of the the cocktail I wanted so that was disappointing. The place is nice but I found it very expensive for a place in Scunthorpe

Hi, I'm really gutted to hear that your visit didn't hit those high expectations we set. Over the past 6 months with no trade our finances have taken an absolute nose dive. When re-opening for this weekend we had to be really, really careful with how much stock we purchased because frankly we had nothing. This meant a few items from the menu couldn't be sold (we ran out of passion fruit for example so we cant garnish 3 of our drinks). Book in to see us again and I promise we will not disappoint.

Didn’t have food, great experience bit a little too loud for me, it’s understandable though having been the first weekend of Covid-19 easing and first time a lot of people have been out into town

Hi Paul, always a welcome table whenever you visit! I agree though... it was a bit too loud for me too! Hopefully as it was the first weekend things will hopefully calm down a little bit. But it is great to see regulars like yourself back with us, thanks for supporting us and see you soon.
