My daughter and new husband had their reception at Tale Of Two just recently. All the staff were very helpful and made our day special. Food was also delicious. I had advise and help throughout arranging the day. Bar staff were really cheerful and did...anything for us all. Thank you Tale Of Two.More

A simple request to temporarily switch off a lamp dazzling two different groups of customers was met with an aggressive and rude response from the manager. Completely uncalled for as we were polite and not remotely argumentative when asking.

I booked the Riverside room for my 60th birthday party. The room is ideal for the smaller party of around 35 people. The room is spacious with fantastic views over the beach and river. There is a small bar in the room which is staffed...by your own personal bar person. The staff were so helpful and friendly. The buffet food was excellent, there wasn't much left !! The images on the Internet don't do the room justice..... it's definitely worth visiting in person if you're looking for a venue. I can't thank everybody involved enough for making my party so special. Thank you.More

Booked a table for 2 hours for NYE afternoon, the atmosphere was good, music decent, we ordered 6 tapas dishes for £29.00, cocktails were around £7, not exceptional but still very good. Would recommend..

We called in on a Saturday lunchtime for a snack in the bar. Other than tapas the menu is limited to 3 sandwiches and 2 salads. We both had the sandwiches which were served with fries and coleslaw, Both were extremely salty but otherwise ok...and good value. However, the person who brought our food didn't think to bring cutlery and seemed put out that we asked for it. She looked and behaved more like a cleaner than hospitality staff. Despite sitting as far away from the entrance as possible we were cold as the doors were open. The floor seemed sticky This place could be so much better with very little effort.More

My son and I were the only people at the bar, there were 4 people outside and about 4 inside not what I would call busy. The young man behind the bar was mixing cocktails so slowly I felt sorry for the people waiting for...them. He did not look in our direction did not offer a "be with you in a minute" this happened every time we went to the bar he was so distant it appeared nearly rude. I do not think he is cut out to work behind a bar. It was my sons birthday and he just made us feel we were putting him out to serve us. Will not be going again.More
