Great value deal through Groupon. Both of our pizzas and cocktails were delicious. I’d definitely visit again
Great service, lovely pizzas and happy hour until 10pm! To improve further, for larger parties that are sharing pizzas, it would be useful to have labels for vegetarian and gluten free pizzas.
The food and cocktails were really nice. Great music paired with a relaxing atmosphere allowed for a fantastic night. Staff were really friendly but I did feel that when the food was served it was just put down on any table without any indication of what it was. This was possibly due to busy periods but felt disorganised at times.
Had a fantastic time hosting a guest speaker at Bloo 88. The venue was available on time and nothing was too much hassle for the staff. Drinks were reasonably priced and all of my societies members were made to feel very welcome.
Very good value for money on the pizza and pre-ordering them meant that the 20 pizzas we ordered only took around 30 minutes to get to us all! Brilliant service and lovely atmosphere.
When we arrived despite booking in advane we were told we were not in the system. Then was shown to an old shabby area with ripped seats and a coffee table before a member of staff found us a table. Same thing happened about 2 years ago so nothings changed. The manager was alesha. Doesn’t make us want to go rushing back there or recommend.
Both Pizza and cocktails were delicious, the place was just a little quiet but I suppose it was early.
Staff were really polite and helpful, I was very impressed.
Our order was taken but never dealt with. We waited over an hour before we asked where our food was. We were given a complimentary drink each which was a nice touch and well received. The food was lovely when it did eventually arrive.
Thank you so much for having us, all the staff were so accommodating!
I booked an area for my fiance's 30th birthday. About 10 of us were going to spend a few hours there before going around some other bars. I had actually won a competition for fizz on arrival and a birthday cake. Well...... we left after 1 drink. I was expecting a private area in the corner or something so we could have our own space to celebrate, instead we got the large square table bang in front of the bar which just had a reserved sign on. I don't even know if there were enough chairs for us all, as there were just regular guests stood/sat around the table. I complained on the night and were told they can move the people, but it's not the point. We shouldn't have to be moving people from an area I have reserved for a private party. Staff even tried to justify where they had sat us as being the best place as we are bang next to the bar, no, if anything it was the worst place as you had large groups of people queuing at the bar bang next to you. We ended up all stood at one end of the table to have our 1 drink. The table was that big we wouldn't have heard each other anyway if we had all sat around it! After complaining we were brought out a bottle of prosecco, which we declined! Just a word of advice, double check you aren't just plonked at a normal seating area when you pre-book an area, cos it just ruined it for us, and I was gutted cos I had planned this for a 30th birthday to celebrate with friends. We got a better seating area in another bar which I didn't even book! Thanks a lot Bloo 88, won't be booking anything with you again.
We used the group on offer pizza and a cocktail for £8. Pizza's were delicious and very good service. Would definitely go again.
This was an advanced booking for 20 people work for a work lunch. We arrived at 12.30 to find the largest table they had seated 10 (12 at most), so we had to work out our own way of sitting together. We had pre-ordered pizzas for approx 14 people. ALL those who had pre-ordered had to wait and extraordinarily long time for our food (some still hadn't received their pizzas when I left at 1.30pm). Others in our party, who had NOT pre-ordered (and had been advised that the pre-orders would be prioritised), were served first. Pizzas were being brought out 2 at a time for a party of 20. Clearly your business can't cope with a booking of that size and that should have been made clear at the point of booking (we have had working lunches there in the past and the food service was nothing like as slow!). The waitress was extremely good, friendly and efficient, so I do not want my comments to reflect badly on her in any way. The low grade for service should not reflect badly on the waitress, this refers to the delays with the food and the fact that there was no manager present to manage the situation. I am a regular visitor to Bloo88 and the bar staff have always been extremely good. However this lunch was nothing short of a disaster and we will have to seriously consider taking our business elsewhere in the future. Kathryn Cousins (not Heather, who made the booking).
We did the Cocktail Master Class for a hen party - it was fantastic and great value for money!! Callum was absolutely brilliant (he didn't even mind too much that we called him Alan!). Food was also really nice. Would highly recommend.
The venue was lovely, sempt staffing was low on the day, I had to chase the food several times after being told it was being served at 12, at 1:50 it was finally served. Our bartender kept disappearing which then left my guests waiting at the bar a couple of times. Overall I am pleased with my booking, just wish there wasn’t a few hiccups
Great, would come again!
Excellent location. A fancy bar which also manages to maintain a 'pub' like atmosphere until the music comes on full blast later in the night. As students, the new Tuesday deals are incredible, and the pizzas are amazing. Only thing I would warn is that if you only drink cider or specific drinks, they might be a little pricey. If you are more flexible a great deal can be found.
Great cocktails and tasty pizzas
Lovely pizza and cocktails would definitely make a return visit in the future!
Unfortunately we had to have some branded lager drinks in none branded glasses, not a massive deal but something which we personally don’t like. Other than that the staff were great
We had a great night at the cocktail masterclass. Callum was a brilliant host and the cocktails we made were lovely! And all followed by pizza - you can't beat it! Highly recommended!
Hired the upstairs room for a private party, brilliant staff, amazing pizzas and the room was fab! Everyone had a great time and we’ll definitely be recommending the room for private hire. Thanks Sharlene and the rest of the staff for everything!
Really good food as always! However two of us had to wait 15 minutes for our pizza, resulting in everyone waiting for us to finish. I asked the waitress if there’s anything that could be done but her manager told her to just apologise. I would not of complained if someone came to the table to explain why we had to wait and apologise however no one came to the table.
Great pizza and cocktails. Thanks Bloo88 team :)
Cocktail masterclass was brilliant. Great value for money and Callum was fantastic!
