“vegetarian food poor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Staff friendly enough but... two vegetarian option, chick pea burger which they did'nt have any of and vegetarain fajita. The fajita essentially consisted of a large plate of fried onions with two wraps and a small amount of cheese, salsa, guacamole, cream. Not very good.

“Poor service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Arrived here last night at around 1900 for a few quiet/intimate drinks before heading out to dinner only to be left sitting at the bar embarrassed as staff just kept walking by even after signalling for attention... There must have been at least 5 people serving behind the bar and not one paid the slightest amount of attention to us whilst actually sitting at the bar. Not to mention the younger looking male working behind the bar who thought it was appropriate to stand and get the chat of the day to what looked like one of his friends popping in for a visit on the other side of the bar...
Having regretted leaving tigerlilly just along the road from here we swiftly up and left after about 15 minutes of waiting...
Not a pleasant experience...

Went with a few friends, cocktails were pretty expensive and I ordered a Cobb salad for my dinner under the impression it was £4.95 but was £7.95 on the cheque, menu was pretty misleading. Salad was not very good, chicken was like the savers chicken you get in supermarkets pre-cooked for £2. Wouldn't rush back, couldn't fault service though.

“Cocktail making was great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

My friend got me a voucher for a cocktail making class here for my birthday. I really enjoyed it and learnt a lot about the theory of how to make cocktails as well as getting to go behind the bar to make two ourselves. Daniel (I think this was his name) was amazing and obviously has a lot of knowledge and passion and was eager to share it with us, at times the music was a little loud to hear him properly, though but it was a Saturday late on in the afternoon so it was to be expected.
Overall a great fun class to do and I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to know a little more about how their favourite cocktails are made.
