What a sad and miserable place
Oct 2018 • Couples
If this place is anything to go by it’s no wonder pubs are closing!!!!!! Poor range of beers, and the three that I had were flat!!!! Grossly overpriced . . . how can anyone justify £1.50 for a splash of lemonade?!?!??! Never go back in there!!!!!

Lunch
Sep 2017 • Friends
14 of us went for lunch at 12.30 - we had all pre-ordered our food being sandwiches, pizza etc, the food came out very sporadically and the last person got their's at 13.40. The food was adequate when we finally got it. We were the only people in the place. All in all very disappointed with the service - not going back in a hurry

Stopped for a beer.
Sep 2016 • Solo
Bar staff are more interested in playing on their mobiles then serving. Quite a young bar staff, need some direction. Not a bust place at all. One of the staff texting and pouring a beer at the same time. One place where the customer doesn't come first. Text message or Facebook or Twitter comes first then the customer. Very poor showing.

Friendly modern pub
Aug 2016 • Couples
We found this pub by chance so thought we would pop in and rest our legs for an hour. We were there at 6pm on weekday, so the bar was fairly quiet. The staff were very friendly and we spent a relaxing hour in comfy chairs watching the Rio Olympics.

need to be drunk to enjoy
Dec 2015 • Friends
at Bowman's the beer selection is poor (mainly lagers), the spirit selection is average, the décor is a little plain and outdated and on a saturday night it is very crowded. if you're drunk you'll probably enjoy the music and all the points ive made wont matter. at least the staff are friendly and there is rarely any trouble. i think it is that reason which has led to this bar receiving multiple local awards.

Left unimpressed
Dec 2015 • Couples
Me and my wife decided to have lunch here during her lunch break and we wish we hadn't bothered. We both ordered the Bird burger with chips, after waiting nearly 40 minutes and seeing people around us who came after we ordered and was getting their food before us I spoke to the girl serving to find where our food was, amazingly it appeared minutes later after she ran around the back stating "that it was just on its way" don't bother lying to us as it was clear it had been forgotten.

My wife's had coleslaw over the chips which she requsted not to have so that had to go back and my chicken burger was very dry and over cooked. The worse bit was that the chips came pre-salted, why? Some people can't eat salt and these were literally swimming in it without the opition of not having them with any salt, it was so bad I couldn't eat mine and I don't mind a bit of salt on my chips.

Overall we was very unimpressed and won't be going back again.

Pleasant place for a quiet midweek drink
Apr 2015 • Friends
Came here for a quick cocktail after a meal in the nearby zizi restaurant. It was a very quiet Wednesday evening but began to fill up a little later. Nice ambience and decor with nice comfortable seating. They were offering 2 cocktails for £8 which we took advantage of. My french martini cocktail was nice but one of us had a strawberry cocktail that tasted like frozen washing up liquid. I think the barman may have been a trainee and got it horribly wrong. We should have returned it but were tired and decided to leave. Overall it looked like a place where you could have a decent evening.
