Arranged early evening get together with friends and took my 3 year old son.
I can not express enough how lovely the staff were from beginning to end. The young gentlemen at bar, made us a lovely cocktail and squash for my son who he made a fuss of.
The food we had was gorgeous. My son made his own pizza, and would like to thank the young gentlemen, who helped him. He was professional and had such a lovely manner with him. My son loved it and will definitely going back with him.
Thanks again for a lovely Casual evening of lovely food and a couple of cocktails. Enjoyed by all.

Residence restaurant is beautiful inside and is a very comfortable and relaxing place to dine in. The bar is very smart, trendy and bright and is a good place to meet up with friends. The cocktails my friends and I had were done perfectly and tasted divine!

The food was excellent and what a great menu choice too. Prices are excellent - not too expensive so very affordable.

Very pleasant and efficient waiter service too.

I definately recommend Residence restaurant and bar to customers.

Thank you, for making my friends and I welcome.

Waited ages for our plates to be cleared - so much so we gave up in ordering desert as we had been waiting so long. Rather expensive £100 for 2 courses, bottle of house wine and 2 cocktails.

This venue seems to have dumbed down since it’s revamp. We were seated in a booth which was nor comfortable at all and awkward to get in and out of. The menu is now of limited choice and is more of a wine bar menu rather than fine dining. The meals were all served on cold plates - not something a first class establishment would consider doing. We used to enjoy lunching at residence but will not be going back in a hurry unless the approach and menu changes

Told them it was our anniversary on the booking and got put on a table out of the main restaurant right next to a table of 8 so we had to shout to hear each other. The food tasted quite good but not worth what we paid. Drinks were good and they have a very good selection of cocktails. Not the greatest experience overall which was disappointing.

Lovely food in very attractive building, tucked away down a side street. Great bar area and very trendy decor in the restaurant. My only criticism would be the inattentive restaurant staff, but it is only a minor niggle, and it was a quiet night so maybe not in a hurry for us to leave. Would certainly go again.

1hr 15 minute wait for starters ! However the bill was reduced by the value of the starters and we had a free bottle of wine. Saying that we ordered at 8:10pm and starters came at 9:30pm which was a spoiler.

Very good experience. Got a little loud as the place filled up but cannot see how to avoid as solid floors and not carpeted. Went for a drink in the bar afterwards but could not get a seat so had to go elsewhere which was a shame. Will definitely become a regular if the menu changes often enough.

Overall I was happy with my visit to the Residence. Unfortunately the table I had was not good - draught from a very slow closing door on my back. I would have preferred a little more variety on the menu but have been before when this wasn't the case so maybe a seasonal thing

Definitely recommend.

Lovely venue for a catch up with my friends. We chose the lite bite menu, it was such good value for lunch. We ended up having two lots of artisan breads and dipping oil, mains and deserts all polished off with a bottle of prosseco. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the dishes on the menu, efficient and friendly. We had a lovely long lunch and did not once feel rushed.

Visited here for the first time since the renovation, lovely decor . Food was nice I picked the mushroom starter which was fairly bland but I think that was more my choice, service was good, was slightly cold in the restaurant and lacking in ambience as quite quiet and no music but nice enough.
Only think I would say is I had a mojito which was horrendous I took it back which they tasted and confirmed was no good, made me another one and it was the same! I have been previous for cocktails and had one which was also not very good, so maybe more cocktail lessons are required, but I would return.
