Refused entry because we didn’t have a ticket to the football because according to the doorman they ‘couldn’t take the risk’! Absolute joke - because I’m not a football fan I’m too much of a risk! Won’t bother doing back again!

We ate here several times. It's just aorund the corner from Hotel Indigo. The staff are attentive and the food is good and moderately priced. It has a nice old time feel and yet has modern touches like craft beers, etc..

This was my second visit to The Blackbird, having first visited before the remodel in August 2017. Food is always great, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that they had many tables set aside for reservations, which made it...More
