Very friendly service but the food was too expensive for what we got. Better to stay with cocktails than breakfast/brunch food

Stopped off for breakfast, friendly warm welcome, clear information on the changes to accommodate Covid regulations.

Service was good and food was lovely. Will be back to sample the Christmas menu and hopefully their lovely cocktails!

Great service and nice atmosphere. Mistake made with order of one meal. By the time it was rectified other three had finished their meals.

Smashed avocado and chicken sandwich a bit unexciting but OK. Others enjoyed their meals.

Would have like a pudding but as a Sunday no desserts but they did manage to serve up 2 tiramisus that were very good. Please offer some sweet stuff! People are out for a nice time and a treat. We need pudding more than ever!

Nice selection of non alcoholic drinks and good coffee and tea. Would come again.

Impressed with covid safety precautions. Despite restricted numbers, each table was occupied yet it felt distanced and safe.
Good food, only disappointment was despite discussing alcohol free options, when we came to order a Seedlip 0% gin were yokd tgat it was finished.

We visited for lunch on Wed 4th Nov and from the minute we went in we felt very safe with hand gel, one way system and face masks. The staff were very friendly and attentive to our requirements. We opted for the non alcoholic Cava which was served in a flute and made the lunch feel special. We both opted for a sandwich which came with chips and was very tasty. We had two coffees each also and including a tip it was £20 each which we both felt excellent value. All the tables were taken by the time we left and the ambience and surroundings were excellent...Will definitely be back.

Overall absolutely loved our experience, the two male hosts really made it amazing. As a table of 4, we had 3 courses each. The food sounded amazing but unfortunately was actually lacking in flavour and didn’t quite hit the spot. Overall still really enjoyed our time because of the atmosphere and the hosts. Thank you.

Even though we were 15 minutes late and had neglected to call to advise our table was made available for us and then service and drinks were excellent.

Fantastic lunch here today served by extremely friendly and efficient staff. Stunning adherence to COVID procedures - a barrier tape at the door to prevent customers randomly walking around the restaurant without having first being greeted by staff, details checked for track and trace, a very clearly marked one-way system, hand sanitiser readily available and a full briefing provided by staff to make sure we understood the system they've put in place. Food (salads and fries) was delicious and would have no hesitation in returning here as soon as possible and heartily recommending a visit to anyone! I fancy trying a cocktail next time... !

Had a lovely grilled halloumi salad which was presented well and tasty. My friend had the duck with plums. Because the dishes were different I did not mind paying the price stated. Service was swift and with a pleasant young man.

First time visiting VOB. Greeted warmly by Tom who explained the Covid arrangements and showed us to a lovely table. We had a variety of drinks; great cocktails and whisky selection and was fun to sample different wines by the glass. Food was delicious and of very good quality; made with care. Tom was fantastic, served us well right through and even ran after me when I left my umbrella behind! We had a great visit and shall return.

Found this lovely spot for a Saturday night dinner. We arrived early for drinks and were accommodated with ease even though the team had to juggle a few tables around. Great food and cocktails. I think my lamb Nicoise was missing the anchovies but its no biggie as it was delicious. From memory there wasn't much/any music so that would help the ambience as there are only a small number of tables.
