We loved it. We came for our 6th year wedding anniversary. We didn’t get our free Prosecco we were promised on the phone though. Atmosphere was amazing and everyone was so lovely. Especially the doorman. He was so funny and welcoming. We will definitely come again.

It was very noisy plus we were squashed on a table with no room to get round. But it was a good atmosphere overall. Food and drink were both nice and service was good

The food was not nice at all ... I did not eat my started and my main I couldn’t eat because I felt sick after. Then I had to pay the full price for my starter even though I never ate it which was outrageous to me. So no I would not be eating there again

Loved the ambiance. Server was prompt and took accurate orders, made sure to include all allergies & custom orders. Staff in general were accommodating. Food came hot & tasted delicious. All plates empty at the end of the meal. No complaints. Value for money.

Amazing atmosphere, high energy, best place to be on a Saturday eve!
Great place to be as a big group looking for good food drinks and a busy fun environment. This is my third time at Blues, first time during the day, just as good as the evening! transition from day to evening is great. If is wasn't for covid I would stay all night|!

If you want a change from the normal fare, this is the place. Unique meals with based on comfort-food cuisine. Atmosphere even without live music is fun. Will be amazing when live performances return!

Shocking, rude customer service. Reserved a table that they could not provided as the previous customers didn't want to leave.
We was seated on a miniature table, on bar stools in the corner of the room with no space for our plates. Rushed to order because they seated us late and was close to last orders by the time we sat down. We only got to have a starter. Absolute joke of a night out. Food was lovely but staff were disgusting.
As we was late we was sat at the bar and offered cocktails.. only to be then told that the cocktails are not complimentary, we didn't even want cocktails?! We was given a free shot, we don't drink alcohol so I'm not sure why this was offered.
Honestly this had to be the worst anniversary I've ever had.

Unfinished we were on a table at the back of the restaurant so lost the atmosphere. Main courses were served whilst we were still eating our starters. We were never offered desserts !! This was my second visit & I was really disappointed this time

Food was pretty good; recommend the brisket - was very tender and flavourful. Good selection of cocktails and the one I had tasted really good. All our food and drinks arrived very quickly.
Door staff were very friendly and helpful - even holding his umbrella over me in the rain while I looked for my mask!
Our waiter was quite rude though - to the point where he didn’t even acknowledge our order. After telling him our order he just looked at us then walked off. Didn’t come over after our food arrived to check everything was ok and very sharp with us when we asked for the desert menu and for our bill.
Everything was good except the server.
