Brilliant food. Ordered a lot of the smaller dishes to share...perfect. will be going back.
Slow service and seating time, starters.... My friend had prawns which were lovely, as was my buttered pork. The garlic flatbread wasn't very garlicky. Then we had burgers. My wagu (not) beef burger was OK. Couldn't taste the horseradish though. My friend had the American. She said it didn't taste right.... I tried a piece and agreed. It tasted slightly off. Pity the waiting staff didn't have the authority to do anything about it as we waited 15 minutes whilst he went back and forward to the kitchen trying to get the chef to agree. Which he didn't. So no lunch for her then.... Oh and a £42 bill. The chips were awful, - greasy and cheap oil at that. My patatas bravas tasted soggy and as if dolloped in pizza sauce. We paid to avoid a fuss. My friend went home to eat. We won't be back. I work in the food industry, if a customer is unhappy.... Especially to that degree... We replace or comp. Not here 😩
Fab! Music quite loud .. but in keeping with the atmosphere!
Really impressed with the new menu. Food was superb and great value for money. Tom was the perfect host and looked after us perfectly.
Really nice. Was done up amazing for Valentine’s Day, food was delicious, and service was great too!
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
The gin Tasting Experience was really good, I personally liked all of the five gins tasted and I must add I only drink occasionally...The staff were really friendly and very helpful. Thank you for a lovely evening.
Been on many work nights here and great every time Thankyou
Great venue for a quiet business lunch. Super food and excellent service.
Very enjoyable meal. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. New menu is amazing.
Good afternoon Nadine, Many thanks for your wonderful feedback, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your visit to us and you are as happy with the new menu as we are! We hope to see you again soon! Best Regards Laura 1842 Management Team
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.
Enjoyed the evening very attentive
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
Good afternoon Amanda, Many thanks for taking the time to provide feedback following your recent visit to us. I believe that my colleague Stephanie has been in contact with you directly to address some of your concerns, Regards Laura 1842 Management Team
Was really disappointed with our visit. The chalet was a table! The Ski bar didn’t serve food or cocktails. Sausages were sold out ... really unhappy. Shane as we are normally very impressed. Feel like false / mid leasing advertising.
Good afternoon Mandy, Many thanks for taking the time to provide us with feedback following your recent visit to us. To confirm The Chalet Club is the overall theme of the venue itself, with all the décor and additions in keeping with this. The 'Ski Lodge' is the transformation of our outdoor area 'The Rabbit Hole'. No food is served outside in the winter, apologies if you were under the impression that this would be the case however we have only ever advertised the Chalet Club menu which is served in our restaurant. As the outdoor area doesn't provide any running water we are unable to produce cocktails outside however we do serve our Winter Warmers out there such as the Mulled Wine and Cider. Please accept our apologies that we had sold out of the Bratwurst Sausage on your visit, we have been extremely busy and this has proved to be one of our most popular orders from the Chalet Menu. I hope this answers any queries and we do hope to welcome you again soon. Our full new menu launches on the 24th January, I do hope that you take the opportunity to visit and try some of our exciting new dishes, Kind Regards Laura 1842 Management Team
We came for our Christmas Party!
We were celebrating our Christmas do in 1842 last saturday . The food was very nice the drinks were amazing and the service can ask for better one . Thank you so much for making this evening memorable. Much appreciate
Good Afternoon Eva, Many thanks for taking the time to provide feedback and award us 5* across the board!
Lovely friendly staff, great decor nice and clean. Considering it was a Christmas menu all the food was amazing and arrived hot. A real Christmas atmosphere with live music. Well worth the money, thank you
Good afternoon Karen, Many thanks for taking the time to provide us with such great feedback from your recent visit and for awarding us with a 5* review. We are so glad that you made your Christmas Party with us here so enjoyable and you enjoyed the food and the live music! It was a pleasure to have you here and we look forward to welcoming you again soon! Best Wishes Laura 1842 Management Team
Friendly staff, easy to book a table. I only gave 4 stars for atmosphere as it was very quiet when we were in
Good afternoon Alison, Thankyou for taking the time to provide us with great feedback from your recent visit to us. Apologies that the venue wasn't as busy as you would have hoped, however it was the calm before the storm as it has definitely made up for it since! Glad you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Keep your eye out for our new full menu launch on the 24th January! Best wishes Laura 1842 Management Team
Good selection of drinks, and good atmosphere as a drinks venue. Extremely disappointing selection of overpriced, undersized food. Service was slow, inattentive, disorganised and server did not know the available options. Was expecting so much more.
Good afternoon Robert, Many thanks for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent visit to us. Please accept our apologies on the food and food service. The menu you ordered from was from our Chalet Club Menu that is in place purely for the festive season and had only just been launched the day before your visit, hence why our servers knowledge was limited as they were just getting used to the options however this is not the kind of service that we would expect to deliver as they should have been more prepared before their shift. We have had some great feedback from other guests that have also ordered from this menu who have advised that the portion sizes were large therefore I can only apologise that you felt that the portion sizes weren't adequate. We do launch our full brand new menu on the 24th January when I hope that you would take the opportunity to give the dishes on this menu a try as feedback from the taster menu that we ran in November was fantastic! Best wishes and we do hope to welcome you back soon, Laura 1842 Management Team
Menu & food wasn’t as good as previous visits. Very loud in the restaurant area. Very friendly staff.
Very helpful in organising our Christmas get together, the food was fantastic and everyone commented that they would visit again.
Great service and atmosphere
The new menu was terrible and not the sort of variety I would expect. The service was poor, the food came out for 2 of our party and they had finished their food by the time the other 5 got served. When asked where the food was they just said it was a busy time which is not a good answer. I wont be back as I booked it on the hope that the new chefs would have had a great menu and delivered great food and that was simply not the case.
