    Food was great and the waitress was excellent - very quick and efficient service. The only negative was when i checked the bill receipt this morning i notice we had been charged for a drink that we didn't order or receive, i assume it was a genuine mistake.

    Good brunch options, started to get abit load towards the end of our lunch as they had a hiphop brunch starting, didn’t bother us as we enjoyed the music but if you were hoping for a quiet catchup check ‘whats on’ before booking.

    The service was great! The food was average. It was good, but rather simple and plain. I would have expected a bit more than what we received. The fritters were delicious, but rather small.

    I cannot thank the blues kitchen enough for the energy, time and effort they put into our visit! From the moment we stepped in the door we were greeted with warmth and energy, to the amazing waitress and the team around the room. We were celebrating my husbands graduation and everyone was talking to him and congratulating him which was a perfect touch. The food was absolutely to die for! Not the biggest of menus but perfectly executed. The Cajun chicken wings were divine and the mains were just as delicious. Thank you to Blues Kitchen, your team are an absolute credit to the establishment. Will definitely be returning. P.s if you find a burnt orange tie it was ours 🤣🤣

    The table was booked for 2 hours. 45 mins from when we arrived we were told that we need to move as there was another booking for that table. The waitress did not know how to split the bill, rolled her eyes saying she doesn’t know how much each of the drinks cost. She was extremely rude throughout. Live music was supposed to play from 9pm, we were there until 11pm, no one showed up to play/perform. We asked another waiter to take a photo of the group, they said they were too busy. Extremely disappointed!!

    We sat a table for 6. We ordered our food by 20:40h, the food was very slow, we waited around an hour for the food and the waiter who served us was really lovely and made us feel welcome all the time. However, we when complained to the hostess or floor manager, she made us feel very uncomfortable about order, said that she would check in the kitchen. She came back and said that the food was literally coming out from the kitchen. A few minutes later the waiter told us that there were many orders in the kitchen and that the order was delayed. 10 minutes later we complained again to the same floor manager, but this time she was very patronising, and had an arrogant and dismissive attitude. 15 minutes, when the food finally arrived, 2 items were missing! We complained again to the floor manager and instead of accepting that she made a mistake, she was extremely arrogant. For the second time, she had a condescending attitude which made us feel uncomfortable and unwelcome; concluding it “was her word against ours”. Was it because we are immigrants and mixed group that we were treated so badly? We highlighted an issue with the order, and she wanted to blame us for their mistake. The waiter was really nice and eventually the food arrived 50 minutes after it was ordered. She then checked our table more than once to ensure that the floor manager spoke with us. It seemed to us that the floor manager didn't want to apologise but eventually she came to the table and said she would offer us a discount. Despite this ‘olive branch’, the situation deteriorated further when were meant to progress to our booth, to watch the live act. We had previously booked and paid the deposit for a booth 3 months ago, to have drinks with friends after dinner. The same manager denied we had any booking for the booth, there weren’t any booths available, and sent us back to the restaurant. When I said to her that I had a receipt, she reluctantly relented and gave us a booth, but after the treatm
