    The Bottomless Small Plate evening was excellent value and very enjoyable. The food is not exactly Michelin star, but it is freshly cooked and against our initial plan, we wolfed one of everything bar one on the menu. Wine perfectly acceptable; very good service, and music just about right, though in an ideal world we probably would have turned it down one notch. But that didn't stop us leaving very happy.

    The food was delicious but service was very slow. We booked to eat before seeing a performance and on the booking I specifically stated we needed to have finished eating before 8.30pm. We were at the table at 7pm but the food did not start arriving until around 7.50pm. This left us with around 30 mins to eat what we had ordered. This was a real shame because the food was really tasty and well presented, however it was too rushed and we didn’t finish. When ordering we were told that because the dishes were small plates they would be produced very quickly - sadly this was not our experience. I hope that this review is seen as constructive criticism because we could not fault the food or the politeness of the staff - if it is truly to be a pre-show food venue the service will need to be much faster.

    Booked a table for pre show dinner however on arrival it became apparent that there was no way we could dine in time for the start of the show. We had to be seated downstairs to the chagrin of the lady behind the bar! She was quite rude but the young boy who eventually seated us was quite charming

    Not worth a visit. There's been 0 other customers on Saturday night which is suspicious. The food was really poor - baked camembert with no seasoning and not warmed throughout served with 5 slices of bread so it should really have been a bread served with cold supermarket camembert. Salmon with side of parsnip salad was just that. The best thing out of the menu were chips with cheese and bacon, well the top of the bowl was good, chips below the first layer were just plain chips. Not impressed and definitely not worth the money.

    Visited early March shortly after the chase lounge reopened. Really not impressed - food too expensive and poor quality, service also poor e.g two glasses of wine were brought over to our table by hand (no tray) with the waiters hands touching the rim of both glasses - shocking to see this. No check back on food. Ambience was lacking and lastly, no menu anywhere to be found online! There’s really no excuse for that these days - not publicly displaying a menu with prices is, IMO, underhanded and disingenuous. I stand by my rating for this visit and won’t be returning unless they really sort themselves out.

    Really disappointing experience, unfortunately, having been very excited to try out the new bar. Staff didn't know which table was which, drinks were very average and served in scratched plastic pitchers filled with ice. There was no atmosphere, and the only thing differentiating the bar from the rest of the courtyard seemed to be different furniture and a wall with climbing plants. Wouldn't go back unfortunately, as the bar has the potential to be a great spot for cocktails.

    Very fresh and new - the waiters were given to much too so for amount of customers. they needed another person. Everyone came at once in a theatre as you’d expect. Why don’t you rota the restaurant on the amount of tickets sold surely you know how busy you’ll be? Just been constructive, it was pleasant, staff were friendly but stressed. Chef didn’t help by dinging the bell all the time.

    Horrendous. Seating was crammed together. Waiters did not know if anyone had ordered or at what stage our meal was at and to make matters worse they had run out of food, yes, run out of food at 8.00pm at night. Most definitely will give this place a miss in the future

    The Courtyard Chase LoungeResponded on 16 August 2021Hi James, We are sorry to hear your visit did not meet your expectations. We aim to keep our tables distanced as a covid precaution and try to deliver a high quality of customer service. Your comments will be fed back to the team to ensure we are meeting these standards. It is difficult to predict what customers will order on any given night and we had a lot of orders for some of our main course dishes. We did however have a wide selection of small plates and other main courses available.

    Food was fantastic, but the drinks are over priced and nothing special. Orders double gin and tonics which were served in a basic tumbler with no lemon or lime, pretty poor standard considering its supposed to be a 'Chase' specialty lounge bar. The staff were friendly but had no clue about the drinks or food menu. Wouldn't rush back.
