Had a wonderful night at 1842 on Thursday. I arranged a party for 16 friends from uni and we couldn't have been better served. From my initial contact with Tom when booking to the moment we left on Thursday night,it ifelt like we were looked after by staff that had a true appreciation for customer service. The food was great, and the menu was varied and interesting. There was lots of mixing and matching going on a cross the table. The cocktail menu also saw alot of action and lots of photos were taken of some truly wonderful creations by very engaging bartenders. All in all a superb evening with great friends made perfect by staff who really made a difference. Well done Edward and co. We will be back soon!

Arrived 15 minutes earlier than booking and table was ready for us. The service and food was excellent and the choice of gluten free food for my wife who suffers from celiac disease is fantastic. Would definitely go again.

Staff were really friendly and helpful, although it was a busy Saturday night we were never rushed for our table and staff kept coming to the table to ask if we wanted any more drinks/anything at all which was great. The food was amazing, and a bargain! Would definitely recommend, great atmosphere too

We did find the menu limited, but are aware we missed the new menu by a week. The buffalo cauliflower dish was cooked to perfection, and I told the chef. Mussels - I must admit, not the best I've had. Sauce was too heavy on the cream and overall not great. Mussel flesh was quite small in comparison to the norm for the price. Lamb shank fell off the bone and was delicious. Potatoe side - fab. I own a hotel and am the chef. My feedback is honest and sincere. I would recommend and go again myself. Always the biggest compliment.

Myself and my partner came here for New Year’s Eve celebrations. We thought the food and service was great however the atmosphere was not what it should have been considering it was New Year’s Eve. We found that the music was in fact making people leave and was slightly too “relaxed” considering the build up and advertisement of a “1920s” themed party. Unfortunately we were quite disappointed and in fact left to go to another bar for new year.

We visited after eating at your restaurant previously. On that occasion I could not fault anything about the place. The food was great and customer service was the best I had experienced. As such we booked to come back in a bigger party, on my instruction only to find the place enpty( not your fault) but told by a young lad serving that we could only choose from a small menu. I had spoken to you before we booked and was told we could pick from the taster menu and nothing else. He was very rude and took more time chatting to the girl serving on the bar. We ordered a drink and waited a very long time despite being the only ones in there. We eventually walked out without eating, much to my embarrassment as I had recommended the restaurant. Very disappointing especially after such a fantastic visit the first time. I thought I had found the perfect place to eat and drink but this visit made me think maybe not
