Great service and delicious food. Thank you.
Having been here before we couldn’t wait to come back for a roast. We ordered the beef and the chicken. Food came out super quickly was pipping hot and looked incredible. We both tucked in, my friend found a hair in her dinner which of course happens. I cannot fault the staff enough when notified they quickly took the plate back to the kitchen and brought out a fresh one moments later. Everyone was so apologetic but we knew that these things happen and we’re happy with the replacement. Overall the food is great and the service is amazing everyone is so friendly and welcoming.
The setting and service were fantastic but the food unfortunately let you guys down. The chocolate sponge was tad dry and the chocolate mouse really sickly. The choice of sandwiches, ie only cream cheese was poor. After visiting the Vintage Birdcage Cakery in Yate and having their afternoon tea only a week before this was below par. The vintages was 5 star and put yours to shame. Sorry
The food, service and general ambience couldn’t be bettered. We would come back just to eat, even if we didn’t have tickets for a production. Excellence in every area. We sat watching the bar and waiting staff and they work so well and with so much good humour. A well oiled machine.
Food, service and atmosphere was absolutely great, however and although it was not implemented, on tickets was a request to vacate the table about 30 minutes before our show started, I was not impressed with this and would have been very unhappy if we had to leave the table before we were ready.
A great asset in the city
Great food served in a fabulous space with impeccable service. Highly recommended.
The food was very good.
Delicious food great setting Thanks
Best yorkie pud I've ever had!
Great food and service. Could do with some music just to up the atmosphere but other than that a great time.
Food was lovely, atmosphere was nice, staff were friendly and accomodating!
Thank you for helping to make it such a special celebratory 21 birthday lunch. The experience would be hard to beat .
Someone called Tabitha ( began with t) really bad attitude towards customers Everyone else brilliant
Excellent food but very slow service.
Food was really excellent and good value for money. The choice for vegetarians and vegans was particularly great however the service was a little slow at times; we were waiting to order food for quite some time plus the food was a slow to arrive.
I had very high hope for Sunday lunch at 1766 and travelled from Monmouth ( my friend came from London!) It was disappointing that the Beef was not available. I had Lamb and my friend pork....the plates looked great but my meal was a little cold and rather than slices of lamb it was a different cut of meat. Great Yorkshire and gravy though. The dessert was nice but not well presented By far the best thing about the meal was our delightful waiter Aiden... He made the lunch for me as he was so pleasant Will come back again .
Always a lovely place to eat and drink with pleasant surroundings and atmosphere
Really great food in a beautiful setting. Staff were super friendly and service was great. We’ll be back for sure!
Seating chaotic even with a booking. Service almost non-exist also with mistakes in the kitchen. Full potential not realised!
The waitresses were ok, not so friendly as in the whole of Bristol. But the manager was very friendly since she came to our table when a large group of men came into the restaurant and made a lot of noise. She also served us free coffee/tea.
Was absolutely excellent- from the food to the service. All my guests were very impressed, even with such a big table the food and service were very well received by all. Atmosphere and the building itself were highly praised too and a great for the kids too. Thank you for all your efforts!
Needed to remind various staff to bring water and take order when we arrivedcfor pre theatre meal.There seemed to be lack of organising from the management. The person who did served us was excellent
Consistently good - one of my favourite places to dine- but shhh don’t tell everyone 😉
