    We went to the cloak and dagger for my girlfriends birthday and we were incredibly impressed with everything from the service we received to the incredible quality of the food! When the bill came we couldn’t believe the good value we’d received, food that good usually does not come at that price, very impressed.

    The setting and atmosphere was nice but the food was very poor given the cost. £9.50 for a slice of tough sourdough with scrambled eggs, and two very thin rashers of bacon. Staff were nice but food does not make up for it.

    Love this place! I went for the first time last weekend. It was the first time going out for food after lockdown and it didn’t disappoint! We sat in the little courtyard out the back and it’s super cute and comfortable. We had brunch and the eggs Benedict and florentine were amazing! Better than I’ve had in high star hotels! Highly recommend. Also the staff were really lovely, welcoming and accommodating. I felt very safe with the Covid regulations. I’ll definitely be going back ASAP!

    The place was under construction so very noisy as music was put on loud to compensate. Menu was via a website but no signal downstairs so had to look on waiter's phone which felt awkward and pressured us into a decision. We visited for Sunday lunch and the food was lovely although was disappointed the vegan option didn't come with the same trimmings, especially as I am not actually vegan just didn't want the meat options. No gravy either. That said, the atmosphere was quite buzzing even for a Sunday afternoon and the food was tasty. Nice enough place, but probably wouldn't rush back.

    We had every nibble, and every small plate (and virtually every cocktail!) -nothing but praise for this place. Great service, Covid restrictions not too restricting-it almost felt like a normal night out. The food was magnificent really tasty loads of interesting flavours, cocktails delish, and waiters’ didn’t hang around bringing us new ones. Thanks guys for a memorable night out.

    We thought my partner couldn’t have a starter as they all had gluten in them. However the chef made the effort to come out and talk to us to see if he could provide something else. He gave my partner a fantastic sushi dish especially for him. What fantastic service, they really went out of their way. The roast was also fantastic!

    I ordered what I thought might be a simple burger, but it was packed with deliciousness. Lots of rich flavour and texture and beautifully presented. Also - Pickled chips! Might be one of the best ideas ever.

    What can I say. I think this is one of the best meals for taste I've had in Bristol (I converted from huge meat eater to vegan!) But also, my friend said the same and he was a huge fan of the pickled chicken starter (best fried chicken in Bristol hands down). The service was impeccable. Never awkward. Friendly. Personable. Happy people. Started with an off menu cocktail downstairs and the bill came to a very reasonable price with 3 drinks. Considering it was eat out to help out, £42 bill so in normal circumstances,. £62 for a 3 course meal and 3 drinks for 2. Great for a date or if you just want some great food. Will defo go back
