I love bar soba and usually frequent the Mitchell lane restaurant, booked a table for 12/11 at merchant square due to having a graduation in the city halls. I booked this as I wanted to use my student discount, and was then told it could not come off the whole bill (which is never a problem at Mitchell lane) slightly disappointing and put a slight dampener on the celebrations.

Delicious food for reasonable price and all of us are fussy eaters. Nice cocktails. Very pleasant and friendly staff and the speed of the service just perfect although the place was mobbed on Saturday. Well done!

Booked the boozy brunch for a girls lunch, the food was delicious and plentiful. The drinks were lovely too and the staff were so attentive our glasses were never dry. Highly recommend this place and enjoyed it so much will be back with my sister in law and mum for some post Christmas shopping refreshments later in the year 😊💖🎄

Terrible service. Waited over 20 minutes for a round of drinks, really bad communication between staff and just in general really organised. Really disappointed.

Food for me was a bit of two halves. The starters were great but the mains a bit of a let down for me. Service ok, our drinks took a bit of time to arrive long after we’d ordered and received our starters...with a long hair found in one. This drink was returned and I assume made fresh (but it did come back pretty sharpish) which makes me think otherwise. All in value I didn’t feel the prices of the dishes and drink made for great value for money.

Service was unbelievably slow. Having sat at the table at 6pm it was almost 7pm before our main courses arrived. Food was ok but service was very poor.

I was really really disappointed by te service. We ordered off the pretheatre menu, and asked for prawn crackers and drinks too. Our starters arrived before any drinks arrived - and only after being prompted out water arrived. The rest of our drinks only arrived after starters and only after I went to the bar to chase them. The reason given for taking so long was there was a large cocktail order ahead of us. Seeing as we only ordered two beers and a soft drink this should not have taken 20 plus minutes. By this point out prawn crackers still hadn’t arrived. So we asked for them to be taken off our order. When it came to paying, the pc were still on the bill AND the pretheatre was put through as individual items. This meant the original bill was over stated by nearly £20. Once brought to the attention of the staff it was corrected but it shouldn’t have happened. Lovely food, but terrible service - prob won’t be back
