Normally we enjoy coming to the ABar. Our favourite place. Yesterday was an exception due to the extreme weather conditions in the garden. It felt like being at sea. The wind blew the rain off the Umbrella on to our food & drinks. Then hailstones. It doesn’t really make outdoor dining enjoyable. Also I do think some outdoor heaters would be nice. As during our summer we have very few warm evenings to sit outside. I did wonder why people are not allowed to sit in the area by the doors leading out to the garden. As it is very airy in that area. Other restaurants have made outside undercover areas. Which would help in our climate. Not too much longer to wait until 17th May when we will be able to eat inside. The service and food were excellent. Just a shame it was watered down with rain & we got wet.

Fantastic food partnered with wonderful wine in a glorious sun-trapped garden, not a bad way to spend a Bank Holiday Sunday!

Food was fab but unfortunately the expresso martinis we ordered were not to our liking. The staff kindly took them back. Staff attentive and friendly. I know no one can control the cold weather but maybe blankets or heaters would have tempted us to stay for another bottle of red.

Third visit this week. Unfortunately the home cut chips were hard. Not often this happens but takes the great off a good meal. Will return for a rerun.

I ordered the sea food platter but asked if it was possible to exchange the crab mayonnaise because of allergies. The staff were very accommodating, and made sure they opened a new box of prawns especially for me, to ensure no cross contamination Staff all polite and attentive without being ‘in your face’

Overall meal was good but I picked badly with the vegan burger and chips which came like a takeaway and with skinny fries which were immediately cold (served outside) my fault for not reading the menu properly but this could have been a much better meal served like a proper burger and fat chips with a salad. Service was ok but not particularly friendly also when the wind blew a menu over spilling a drink it would have been nice if it had been replaced

New to area and have been on front terrace a few times and enjoyed the wines and food but really enjoyed the rear garden experience and the brilliant sea bass special and the chocolate orange dessert. A fabulous bar and restaurant and thank you to the waitress who was so friendly and pleasant . Will be returning soon.

Great food, first time eaten out in forever! It was so nice to sit outside in sunshine of sheltered garden and hear other people chatting.
