The server was so knowledgeable on the gin flight we had. It was fab to learn about different gins and mixing them. The place was quiet and we could enjoy our gins and listen to some fab music. Will defo recommend to family and friends and come back again.

Emailing to reserve a table was easy and I received my confirmation quickly. All good. Our table was ready when we arrived however the barman on duty was rude and quite unhelpful when one of our apartment to the bar to order. This was disappointing because this was my recommendation. This was the only downside.

We weren't expecting masses of food as the deal was a bottle of wine and 4 small plates However the food consisted of a tiny dish of peanuts,another of olives,some tortilla crisps with a little cheese on top and a large pretzel.I think if it had said on the deal wine and nibbles we wouldn't have bothered Not good value for money.

This was actually a visit to Windows on the West but nonetheless it was a pleasant visit and the lady who welcomed us was charming and told us a little about the restoration and plans for the future. The deal was great nibbles and a bottle of Prosecco it was a great relaxing visit.

We had a delightful Prosecco High Tea and found all the staff very friendly and helpful. Michael was especially nice as i had emailed him and he remembered me which i thought was a nice touch considering how many guest he comes in contact with on a daily basis. We will definitely book this again Regards Roz Bennison

Had a lovely afternoon tea with 7 friends to celebrate a special birthday. The food and drink was nice enough and the service was excellent. Not much of an atmosphere, very quiet but maybe because we were there on a Sunday afternoon. We created our own fun atmosphere though and had a great time

Just want we wanted for a pre 21st party get together . Staff all very helpful & willing to assist in any way - especially Heather. Please thank her & the team. It would be good if drinks could have been prepared a bit quicker. Speciality gins took a LONG time to prepare compared to other Gin bars

Sadly we didn't get to eat. Booked a table in advance, showed up to a lively atmosphere in the place. Waitress took us to our table and pretty much left us there. She said she'd bring us menus but never did. Made some eye contact with her at one point but still nothing. We gave up and left - ate at place across the road who squeezed us in at last minute on a busy Saturday night. Note reviews on Facebook complaining of the same lack of service on the night we went so maybe just teething problems. Those who were having drinks seemed to be enjoying it. I'm a gin lover so was salivating at the huge selection they've put together. Service let the place down badly that night.
