Great service, particularly from the American waitress, a credit to the restaurant! Great deal due to imposing lockdown of a 2 pint stein for the price of 1! Thought the food portions of some of the items could have been a little bigger but tasted great!
We enjoyed our evening with you - the service and atmosphere were brilliant. The drinks were good value for money and tasty - from cocktails especially the one with sake, yum! However, the food was average and a bit disappointing (sweet chilli and Persian chicken skewers and Rasta pasta were bland, soup overly salted). The cauliflower wings were really tasty though!
Absolutely loved our meal and time at 1842! Food was delicious and service was amazing by Steph!
Beautiful food as always...... and the gin is absolutely gorgeous, thank you
Excellent place and service can’t wait to go again.
Food was pretty average for the price in my opinion. Atmosphere was very dead. Service was shocking, waited for nearly 25 minutes for our first drink. Won’t be returning
Really nice meal and service it’s our favourite place to eat and dine especially during lockdown
Excellent food and cocktails to die for.
Fantastic place for food and drink, lovely friendly environment with really nice pleasant staff. Food is amazing as are the cocktails, book now - you won't be disappointed !!
Thank you for being so friendly, the fab food, and the free drink!
The new brunch menu and food is incredible. The service was quick and efficient and the food was beautifully presented and tasted amazing. Will definitely be back here for brunch!
We’ve eaten here a few times now and never been disappointed. Delicious tapas, lovely atmosphere and the staff friendly and accommodating.
1842 – The New Brunch Experience! Service = Excellent. Food Preparation/Presentation = Excellent. Hot Drinks = Excellent. Hot chocolate the star and Earl Grey Tea an unexpected treat (not being a tea drinker). If it’s good enough for Patrick Stewart/Jean Luc Picard (STNG) it was worth a try! Clean fresh favour. Possibly a good palate cleanser. Does not (necessarily) need milk. Cocktails = Excellent/Very Good. Cocktail Preparation/Presentation = Excellent. Detail: My daughter and myself treating ourselves to a relaxed, friendly weekend dinning & drinks experience. The Food: Martin and his kitchen team provided spot on brunch food and ideas for a weekend treat. The Big Brunch Bun – Packed Burger experience with a well balanced addition of breakfast ingredients with a lovely home made spicy ketchup twist. Nice toasted bun! Perfectly cooked scrambled eggs dish. Straight forwardly wholesome. Super Berry Smoothie Bowl – Not our usual thing. Everything completely freshly made. Smoothie, Berries, Granola. Amazing favours and textures. Chia seeds a nice touch. Very more-ish. The Cocktails: Excellent work from Tom here. Bloody Mary complete box ticker as was the Espresso Martini. The Dead Mans Wakeup Call providing new cocktail with a lovely chilli twist. I wish 1842 every success with the new Brunch menu. It deserves to work. Manoj 25.10.20
Was a fantastic night. Amazing food so yummy! Mussels and cheesecake were to die for. Fantastic wine & atmosphere. Felt safe with covid restrictions in place. Will be coming back soon.
atmosphere mark purely due to the lack of people, everything else exceptional and staff doing a great job under the circumstances.
Meal was lovely,service was excellent we will be calling in again very soon
Staff were fantastic friendly service and were on hand should we want anything couldn’t thank them enough for making our evening enjoyable even with the Covid restrictions.
Best place in Preston
Loved the tapas :)
Love it here - love the fun flavours of gin, nice staff, great atmosphere and great value for money
Just had the most amazing takeaway I’ve ever had. Chicken and rice sounds plain but OMG it was absolutely perfect. Actually wished I’d ordered two it was that good. Thank you so much. Probably order another one tomorrow 😊
Lovely staff. Very much enjoyed food. I hope all goes well in current climate.
Service was excellent and so was the food.
