It was great, can't fault the staff, service or food but my only complaint would be that they didn't seem to follow all of the coronavirus guidelines i.e. I only saw one other table wear face masks as they were walking through the restaurant and there wasn't much control over people going up/down the stairs to allow physical distance. Even people at the bar with no face masks on. Plenty of hand sanitiser around and in the bathroom though, and the place was very clean all in all. Would visit again.

Have to say we were there last night and no social distancing maintained what so ever. Nobody at entrance to make sure people sanitise, no face coverings what so ever apart from the staff who sometimes chose to let them hang off there face. 3 men in the toilets. I’m really sorry but it was bad. We are on lockdown and things should of been safer there. Genuine feedback so I hope u listen

Staff seamed rushed about, would be better if they were given areas to look after. Very rushed and not a very chilled atmosphere

We are long tome customers primarily for the Spanish tapas but that seems to have been lost with the special board, It was very busy when we arrived, I’m not sure they have enough staff to cope with take away and sit in. You hope regular service and the Spanish menu are only a temp hiatus’s

Not very welcoming upon arrival. Booked for 7.30 table want ready. When table was ready just told your table is over there around the corner - not taken to table. Think that is poor service. Then waited ages for order to be taken- then 45 mins later food still hadn’t arrived. Poor service. (Fair enough offered us a free drink) Then when food arrived had to wait for salt and vinegar etc whereas if it was good service then this would have been thought about before food arrived. No atmosphere- really disappointed ☹️

Lovely lunch, great food, hard working front of house team. Bistro 8 has worked so hard for customers throughout the current crisis and maintained their high standards. We’ll be back soon.

We have visited Bistro 8 before and have always had a really good experience. Unfortunately on this occasion the service let the restaurant down. On arrival we waited awkwardly for someone to greet us and to show us to our table. There was someone behind the bar and two members of staff sat downstairs who chose to ignore us. After a few minutes we were shown to a table downstairs. It took around 25 minutes before our food and drink order was taken. Our starter was brought to the table (tapas to share) approx 50 mins after we were seated without any side plates and we still had no drinks. Waiting 50 minutes for drinks, when you can see an empty bar is fairly shocking by anyone’s standards. I had to ask a different waitress who was serving another table if we could have some plates, condiments, and our drinks. This waitress was very helpful and did her best to give us a better experience. When my cocktail was made, the waitress apologised and we were told it would be taken off the bill as well as my partners beer as a gesture of good will. In general, the attitude of the staff downstairs was very relaxed and not attentive. 3-4 staff members were crowded around one of the tables by the toilet more interested in talking amongst themselves than looking after the three tables downstairs. The atmosphere downstairs was generally disappointing. The food was beautifully cooked as always, fresh and delicious. We had visited the week before on Tuesday, and the staff upstairs and behind the bar were extremely attentive and helpful, worlds apart from the staff we met last night. In future when we visit again, I hope to have another good experience otherwise unfortunately this may be our last time visiting. Customer service and atmosphere is equally as important as the quality of the food in my opinion.

We had a fab meal and would definitely go back, but with three staff it just seemed a bit disjointed . The staff themselves were friendly and nice. They just seemed constantly rushing around. With covid itt is a weird atmosphere, but towards the end our meal background music came on which was really nice Tables seened well spaced out and on the area we were in we wss the only table. As said tho, had a fantastic meal x

There was social distancing measures in place but we were given a warm welcome. They even allowed us to move to another area which was quieter. The waitress's were very helpful and service was good. The food was lush and value for money. There was no rushing to get us off the table when our allocated time was up and they even suggested we sit downstairs to finish our drinks. The manager came to chat to us and she was lovely. Will definitely be going back there soon 😊
