Absolutely delightful service from the bartender and waitress, so unfortunate I cannot remember their names, they were extremely polite and attentive. The food was delicious and served promptly. The drinks were lovely as well. The atmosphere of the restaurant was amazing. Thank you for an amazing night, particularly after a very long lockdown it’s lovely to see staff and establishments treating customers nicely and putting social distancing measures in

Staff were extremely accommodating couldn’t do enough for us. The last time I came was a few years ago on a works do, only had drinks and thought I’d see how it was. Didn’t fail to impress on our first date! Food at first glance of the menu I thought would be average to good, however massive surprise and every credit to the chef and team. Absolutely top drawer food

We had a great time at 1842. The service was fantastic. When the bar was getting a little busier the waiter came & asked if we would like another drink. So we was never having to wait for any drinks. We felt very safe & liked the fact that all staff was wearing face masks . Would definitely visit again in these strange times. Thankyou !

Difficult to rate atmosphere in the current circumstances, but looked really nice, and would probably be a great place to go outwith social distancing restrictions. Covid protocols were good and all staff were very pleasant and welcoming. Food was excellent. Decent selection of drinks and reasonably priced for a city centre. Would recommend for food and/or drinks, and will be back next time we are down.

Could do with more staff for the table service as when it gets really busy waiting longer for drinks to come, staff are friendly, toilets could be monitored a little more closely as when some have had too much to drink they leave the toilet in a mess which is not nice for the next customer to see. Drinks are good enjoyed time at 1842 with friends and family .
