Lovely flavours and felt relaxed. The band were doing a sound check so unfortunately the first part of the meal was difficult in terms of conversation. Would revisit but unsure if we would have the situation again?? It was 6.30 table so I expected it to be quiet.

I'm a Brewery Tap regular but don't often eat here. Was with a group and we all enjoyed the food, and service.

Can't comment on the noise level as we also came for the music!

Had a great pre theatre dinner here this week. Thai food really top drawer and enjoyed every bit of it. Place is consistently good. Staff a bit of a mix - either great or needing to learn how to smile and sound like they care! Only thing that always disappoints is that mid week you can only eat in the bar and not the restaurant which means its quite noisy. If you want something quieter and more romantic then maybe this isnt best suited to you. Would recommend East 1mile away for a quieter experience

Thai food was good freshly cooked on demand. Service was Ok considering food was cooked to order. Decor a bit dark and outdated and not in theme with restuaraunt.

Sunday evening so food only in the bar. Food was as always good, however there was live entertainment with a series of solo singers/guitarists- the ability of these was variable but what was not was the volume/amplification which was at a level that became simply too much/incompatible with dining. In future I will check if there is live music and avoid the date.

Even though i scored high for the noise level this was because there was the Saturday night DJ playing music but this starts from around 9pm, we booked for 19:15 which was perfect. Love it at the tap, would always recommend. 😊

Lovely food & atmosphere. The only complaint I have was they took too long to clear the table but it was a Friday night so maybe I'm being a bit picky. Would definitely recommend it.

Good food in a relaxed atmosphere. Always been busy on a Saturday night and staff are rushed off their feet. I think they have priced their drinks in line with a restaurant rather than a pub that serves food. I don’t believe you should pay nearly £4 a pint for a locally brewed beer and then go to their sister pub the next day and pay considerably less.

Food was delicious. Mixed platter was good. I had red Thai prawn curry as a main and it was very tasty.
Service was efficient.

The food was brilliant, some of the best Thai food we’ve ever eaten. The beer and cocktails were also delicious.
The waiting staff in the restaurant part were very helpful and polite.
The only thing that ruined it for us was that a couple of the female bar staff appeared aloof, unfriendly and unhelpful. There was no need for it, it wasn’t particularly busy and there were plenty of staff on.

Fantastic food as always and very good table service up stairs . There was 4 of us a it was someone’s birthday so we took them there for the first time they really enjoyed the food as do did we . But the live band was truly awful and far to loud we had trouble ordering out food to the waitress as she could not here is over the awful love music . Don’t get me wrong I like a love band if they know what there are doing . It was like they had asked 5 people at the bar if they wanted to have a go a truly shocking racket . Which far to loud .

Food is always super good here. Service is also fantastic. They do get REALLY busy though so a reservation is usually ideal if you want food.
I always recommend this place for friends visiting the area.

Staff was very helpfull and served food professionally. Really nice interior and easy process to book a table (online). However we had to leave very early do very, very poor music - DJ seem to play everything that he likes and music was waaaaaaaay too loud, you can hear amplifiers trashing out due to incorrect setup. Would not recommend to spend evening there.

The 2 courses for £11.95 was a good deal. The starters were lovely. The crispy chilli beef was not. Very bland, chewy, no sauce. Very disappointed.

Food was amazing as always!
Just ordering process looked rather unorganised, trams was asking if this was our orders. Not sure if this because of new team/ busy Valentine day or what. Had dinner with guest from São Paulo, Brazil and it was slightly embarrassing.

Been to the Tap many times, was expecting a nice meal and a good boogie afterwards. However the food had to be chased up taking forever to arrive and the music was dire (been to much better evenings musically). Hence we left at around 10.30 rather than spend the whole evening there which was our plan.

Open mike night. The music is much too lound. No chance of conversation even between sets as the DJ likes the sound of his own voice too much. No drinks service at the table. Waiting staff no where to be seen . many punters had to go in search of one. We left after one drink.

A great idea and some real talent on stage but unable to distinquish songs because of volume levels. This place really needs to employ professionals if it is to succeed.
