    Visited the restaurant for lunch on a Saturday. It was too busy which I liked. The food was good, the buffalo wings were my favourite. They were able to accommodate everyone’s dietary requirements. The service was really good. Staff were all friendly and helpful.

    It’s now the third time i’ve been here and its safe to say the food’s been splendid on every trip i’ve been to at The Blues Kitchen. This trip was for a belated Father’s Day celebration. We ordered the Cajun Popcorn Squid and Mac’N’Cheese for sides, and my dad got the St Louis Pork Ribs while I got the Hot Chicken Buffalo Sandwich. Beautiful!! The food came very quickly and we loved every bite. We also had the lovely Anais as our server this time and helped us enjoy our experience.

    This was incredible! Thanks so much to (Alice?) our waiter, only been there 3 weeks but the most fantastic experience. We ordered nearly everything off the menu, and it was fantastic. Still drooling at the shrimp burger today. Taco shrimp bowl salad probably gonna be my go to on a light bite before a big night out. The other half massively enjoyed the bacon gravy (nom emoji). Cannot speak highly of the service enough, and when the staff know to bring you Choloula hot sauce, you know you’re on to a winner. Great vibes in the house, and there was a faint whiff of New Orleans in the air. Thanks again for a wonderful evening.

    Good service, nice atmosphere and great band! Food was a little pricey. Burger and chips well cooked but too much BBQ sauce! Also would recommend starting NHS discounts!

    Never been here before but will definitely return. Food was amazing with the chicken wings coming out a complete winner. Found out cocktails were a fiver on Wednesdays so had a few of those and then settled down to listen to a live band. Decor is different but gives the place a nice quirky atmosphere. Service was nice and friendly and overall a very enjoyable evening. Would definitely recommend

    Great staff, friendly and efficient. Food was very good. Noise level, even in the restaurant area, was way too high. It was only about 5.30pm so the clubbers were not all out and about but, Jesus, why do some women have to be so screeching? Venue can't really help it but as the customers voices volume raised the background(?) music was pumped up. So, people had to talk louder to be heard across the table. Then, then the music is put again and the Pete talk louder still to be heard. It's a vicious circle, I guess. I'm just getting old, I suppose.
