Small portions with a quite expensive price tag. Not much choice for vegetarians. Food OK

“Why bother!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2012 via mobile

have been a few times to Hide, whilst food is nice variable service. staff don't want to be there and hence service is slow to on medium. Have tried to have breakfast a few times, but varying opening times. I stood outside once and the staff could see me there but didn't ever come to open up. heckled when they were supposed to be open but this was never the case. The last straw is that on the week end they said had ran out of food and weren't serving!
Absolutely terrible! Once told the fridge had broke and not serving.
Won't be good there ever again! Can't be relied on!

“Slow Service but Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

Myself and my Partner came to Hide bar following reading reviews on trip advisor.
The decor in the restaurant is lovely and nicely organised. When we were seated the staff were friendly and helpful with our drinks order being on the table after just a few minutes of ordering.
The food on the other hand took slightly longer!!
The menu had plenty choice and had both ordered the steaks........after about 15 minutes or ordering we noticed a waitress going to all the tables with baskets of bread and olives a nice touch we thought. So those were ate, and another 15 minutes passed. Then we noticed the same happening again. This continued and when we were offered our THIRD basket of bread and olive we had to decline. This was 45 minutes after ordering. Thankfully the wine was flowing...
Although an apology was given by the waitress, we had no explanation to why our meals (as well as everyone else's) had taken 1 hour to be served!
HOWEVER, once our food was served we had forgotten about the wait. The steaks were beautiful and cooked exactly as ordered which was a bonus as we regularly encounter places which either under or overcook the steaks. The creamed spinach was perfect, could not fault the meal at all.
Overall, even though there was a rather long wait for our meals: they were well worth it. Would definitely come back to Hide!

“Good value drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

Been here a couple of times for cocktails, haven't had chance to get food it's always busy! The cocktails are pricey but they are worth every penny (sometimes get two for one) as they have proper alcohol in them.
