very hot place, upstairs is not as nice as downstairs. we requested to go outside which was then a lot nicer and bareable. drinks were pretty overpriced for what they were.

was then charged a no show fee after we left, £20!! phoned then they said they’d refund time then charged me another £20, still no refund!

The girl who showed us to our table was so incredibly rude, we were quite shocked as we've never had this issue before. The girl who served us was lovely and definitely made up for it.

Rubbish music. Arrived at the bar and our table had been given away. We arrived on time. It took 20 minutes before anyone took our first order. Won’t be back

Took forever just pour a pint and get us premade cocktails. Let the experience down. Plus didn’t come back to ask if we want anything else when our glasses were empty. Had to catch a member of staff as they were passing . Again our next order of two pints took about 10mins to arrive.

Booked in for a table at quarter past three on Saturday afternoon. We arrived on time for our booking. Really enjoyed the cocktails and we were sat outside in the nice weather, so we were enjoying ourselves. We ordered food and then whilst my partner was still eating his meal we were told we only had 15 minutes left on our table and could they get us any last drinks. This was at half past four. No one told us when we sat down that we only had an hour and a half at the table. We felt rushed out even more when the waitress brought over the bill without us asking for it. Would have quite happily have stayed there all night but we were forced out after an hour and a half.

Really great food and cocktails but unfortunately let down by the slow service.
Food was really quick but it was a nightmare getting anyone’s attention to order food/ more drinks/ the bill, etc (and it wasn’t particularly busy).

We booked a table for a meal prior to going to the King's Theatre for a show, nice comfortable place to eat, food was good and prices are reasonable, limited selection of beers but was ok with Guinness, cocktails for my wife was fine, plenty of alcohol content, overall enjoyed our visit, would go back again.

Enjoyed with cool interior and atmosphere. Food was a little pricey for what was actually on the plate and taste was mediocre, was expecting more but a nice evening.

First time there and we would definitely go back. Even though I booked inside the weather was lovely and they gave us an outside table. The service was great, drinks delicious and we had the Thai sharing platter which was superb. If it had not been for the fact that we had dinner booked elsewhere we would have stayed all day

4 people had 3 different dishes. We all agreed that they weren't the best, and not all that authentically Thai (one of us worked in Thailand for 2 years and we all consume plenty of Thai food). The Pad Thai lacked the fresh flavours it should have, there wasn't any trace of Thai basil in one person's dish and the mushroom sauce used made it very sweet. The jungle curry was more watery than any I have had before. The flavour was OK, but no better than that.

When booking Tiki bar, didn’t expect our table to then be taken to sit upstairs with zero decor, ambience or vibe that you’d affiliate with Tiki bar. I gather this is the ‘kitsch inn’ section. View of the bar was a mess with a computer and boxes stacked up it was as if we’d been sat in a stockroom. Asked to be moved downstairs and response was rather blunt. Cocktails were delicious but left after the first round.

We were a group of 10 but due to covid we had two separate bookings. This meant we weren't seated together but the waiter ensured that when the opportunity arose, he would move us closer together and he did. The staff made our night one to remember!

Drinks were poor for the price £7 for a plastic 250ml cup. Now compared to other places visited that day comparing the cocktails... tiki bar was the worst qnd is frustrating as was looking forward to it.

Now for the food

£7 for tempura prawns.... a round bowl appeared in front to us with some salad and 4 prawns in it
£7 for 4 prawns first th.ing that I was disappointed at
U picked q prawn up.qnd the oil from the fryer dripping off it was vile, when u pinched it the oil was drippibg off it.
The salad has wilted qnd also now swimming in oil.

Was not happy or impressed qnd has put me off a return visit which is disappointing as the decor qnd the ambience was great
