Really good selection of cocktails and the staff were very accommodating as we were early for our booking but they still made space for us. The service was a bit slow and took ages to order drinks but they were really busy and we weren't in any rush. We sat outside which wasn't the most scenic but was a nice night for it and felt the staff forgot about the outside people a bit. Overall, really nice time!

The service was good until we were told to leave abruptly
The manager was rude and told my partner that he was aggressive we are in our 60 s to be insulted by this man was upsetting
We would come to Tiger Hornsby regular before covid but will not be returning because of this guy’s attitude

Ignore the "dress code" unless you're there on a Friday or Saturday evening. I attended Monday evening and there were people in shorts. Definitely not "smart casual"

We went when it was 241 on cocktails so this made it fun trying out as many cocktails in our available booked time slot. However only one waitress which meant service was really slow.
Beautiful place they have decorated it lovely. Would go back.

Thanks for visiting us and we are so pleased you enjoyed the 241 cocktail offer that we have Monday to Wednesday! We have more staff on shift now, as our early week nights are much busier than they used to be! So the next time you visit we hope you'll be better looked after. See you again soon :)

Very nicely decorated place. Service was very poor unfortunately, waited absolutely ages for drinks to arrive after ordering and on 3 separate occasions had to ask where our drinks were after waiting 15 minutes each time

Tiger Hornsby
Responded on 9 June 2021

We are so sorry that you had a disappointing visit to Tiger Hornsby on the bank holiday weekend. We were overwhelmed by the amount of customers who wanted to visit us, so we did struggle to keep drinks orders moving quickly whilst also maintaining covid safety standards. We are still in the process of adapting to Covid19 restrictions whilst maintaining our high standards, however in Iight of this we are recruiting more staff so that we can improve our service times on the really busy days.

The sharing platters used to be lovely. Good value for money and tasty - what we were served was very poor. A few slices of meat and two breadsticks with a small bowl of olives. Cocktails were lovely and staff were apologetic - we will come back if the food improves

Tiger Hornsby
Responded on 9 June 2021

Hi Lisa! So sorry that you were disappointed with our Charcuterie Board on your recent visit. We are using the same meat selection that we used to, but yes we have changed the bread selection to black olive sourdough sticks. We have taken this on board and are adding the warm sliced sourdough with dipping oil back on to the board from now on :) Hope to have you back again soon x

Great to be back! Staff doing grand job just pity some customers did not wear masks like expected when walking around / going to toilet (staff did stop a lady on one occasion ) and customers standing talking to people seated at one table 😳

Tiger Hornsby
Responded on 9 June 2021

Thanks for coming back! Yes, it was a tricky bank holiday when you visited us, with quite a few customers claiming to be exempt (and who seemingly thought this meant they didn't need to stay in their seats either!) We are committed to keeping people safe and we are removing people from the venue if they continue to flout the rules. Hope to see you back again soon! x
