Created in partnership with Chase Distillery, who have invested in the development and supported the design.

booked drinks table for 6 only 5 chairs luckily not busy so had to use a chair from another table. Started to rain so had to go inside & downstairs in cafe not the experience i booked for! They need heaters outside & also a canopy so if it rains we can stay on the table we booked in the chase lounge
Relaxed eating, would visit even if not attending the theatre. Lovely outdoor balcony in warm weather
Good range of drinks, reasonably priced wine list. Good range of food, well cooked and presented. Small plates are a great idea and a good range of food on offer. Enjoyed the range of find and other drinks. Will certainly return and happy to recommend
Good menu offering tapas and also main meals. All food was prepared well and was delicious. Lovely surroundings and outside seating if required. Altogether a lovely experience
Our waitress was not particularly helpful in the respect, that two of our party ,did not want gin ,but other spirits she said they only served then at the bar downstairs ,in my view it was just inconvenient for her
Lovely food, service and setting, and lovely friendly staff.. the only downside was we didn’t realise we couldn’t tip on card and we only had some loose change between us.. will remember for next time. Thank you :)
One of the best meals had in long time all staff especially Michelle very pleasant & attentive.
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
Hi 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 great. Great menu. Pleasant staff.
Small plate menu just perfect for a pre-show meal.
Just slightly disappointed as it’s a gin lounge and you served gin drinks in tumblers ……
The service was really really slow, waited ages for food and drink.
The small plates were small but tasty, slightly overpriced for what you got. Not much atmosphere even though it was busy. Felt disappointed
1st time here. Birthday outing with my daughter and friends. Had tapas and lots of gin! All beautiful
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.
Excellent service and food a lovely new addition to Hereford
Love this place, staff are amazing food is delicious the only irritating thing is that there are no blinds on the huge windows so very warm which caused some people to ask to move from tables to another.
Wonderful relaxed atmosphere, delicious food and good value.
A wonderful evening, in a stylish but comfortable setting. Exceptional service, friendly staff. Most importantly great tasting food, with a good selection of drink options. All very reasonably priced. Can’t wait to eat there again!
Drinks were amazing!
Very loud and echoey. Food wasn’t the best value for money.
A lovely place to go for an evening of small plates and cocktails.
Fantastic lovely evening at the courtyard chase lounge.
Lovely atmosphere very clean all staff friendly keen and quick service.
Tasty food, quality drinks and excellent service. Will be booking again.
The lounge was a lovely place for cocktails-pity we couldn’t have nibbles.
Really lovely setting, well managed but not sterile COVID safety measures and super food and service. Will be a regular for us.
Small plate menu choice is excellent.
Background music is too loud; the hard surfaces have zero absorption.
The tapas and service was very good, staff were friendly and efficient. Overall we had a lovely evening:)
Loved the idea of the small plates so we choose 6 between us, and boy we didn’t regret it, gorgeous. We had fish, veggie and meat so tastey.
Had a lovely evening, the tapas was amazing, really tasty yet good value, great cocktails, not too expensive and really attentive lovely service, really like the atmosphere and surroundings and was happy relaxing in one of the comfy armchairs after we had eaten. Top marks from me, would love to go every week!
I was disappointed you don’t use gin glasses for your gin and you actually served the gin in what looked like a kids glass.
Also there was a poor choice on the menu.
I had the beef on the bone and the only vegetables served with it was lots and lots of carrots.
Please take this as constructive criticism as I appreciate you’ve only just opened. You have a really good venue which could be very popular if you get some of the details right.
Good luck and we hope to see you again.
Lovely evening. Good venue, great food with excellent service. Very to book online.
Some nice tapas £7/dish so a little pricey. Cocktails are nice but nothing special. Such a shame as these could be real showstoppers. Ask to sit outside if the weathers good it’s a real sun trap.
A delicious and interesting menu with beautifully presented food. Tasteful decor and interesting and relaxing surroundings. Happy and friendly staff. A really enjoyable evening - we will be back soon. Thank you.
We had a wonderful time there! It’s our first night out as a couple since Covid and we felt very safe, comfortable and happy with the service we received!
Can’t wait to go again!
Firstly, thank you for. 7 of us from a local book club met up for our first meal out together.
For a new venue there are always a few things to iron out. But overall, well done.
Love the new lounge area. Feels opulent and great to chill with friends after eating.
The tables and chairs in the dining area not so opulent but ok. Chairs uncomfortable.
Food great but difficult to eat on the small plates. Had to ask for larger plates to eat to save getting food on the table.
Service ok. Staff are lovely but need refining. Just needs to be a step up from cafe service.
Pleeeeease could there be some non alcoholic cocktails on the drinks menu. I’m usually the driver as I don’t drink much but had to have a Pepsi max which doesn’t make it feel ‘special’ when the others are having a nice gin.
The Chase will be a regular venue for us.
Lovely first visit.. the staff couldn't do enough for us
The overall look and feel of the Cocktail Bar was nice, however for a Gin Bar to serve your Gin in a basic cheap water glass, spoilt otherwise a good night.
I recommend The Chase's Cocktail Bar, however if you want to have it in a proper glass bring your own.
Lovely small plates menu, great choice of desserts. Feels nice being up above what will be the hub bub of theatre land. So glad to have The Courtyard back.
Amazing place! Amazing food, and brilliant service. The atmosphere is fabulous and everything excellent value. We really enjoyed ourselves!
