Food was nice and atmosphere for Sunday lunch. Could have additional options for those who don’t want Sunday lunch

Great selection of food. We did the afternoon tea. We requested the gin tea cocktail but they didn’t have it. We had another similar cocktail but it was terrible and far too strong which was disappointing

I’m a fussy eater & tried many places for Sunday lunch, this has to be one of the best for quality & portion size, the beef was succulent & tender, the vegetables all came out hot in warmed bowls. Definately recommend Bon Bar for Sunday lunch...

As we arrived no one to show us to our table if it had not been for the lady that was singing that afternoon who asked if she could help us we would have stood for a while.

Very disappointing. We were the only people there. Don't think it's appropriate to hold afternoon tea in a booth with no table cloth, room was very cold and no atmosphere at all. The host was very pleasant and helpful. My tea cup was dirty so had to ask for it to be replaced. Sugar bowl had a few packets of sugar in- if you are offering afternoon tea with teapot n milk jug should at least have a sugar bowl with cubes or granules not packets! We asked not to include smoked salmon sandwiches and could replace with something else but all we got was chicken n Parma ham or motzarella, tom n pesto no other choice, should have been at least 3 choices with an advanced booking. Scones were delicious though I have to say the only good thing but everything else was soggy or bland I'm afraid to say so neither of us enjoyed it. We weren't given a spoon for the mousse and the cake pops were disgusting ( very very doughy). I think you need to either offer it as a large party afternoon tea or make sure to tell customers they are the only ones in a very large room. Attention to detail is very important and I feel lots if things were over looked so really not a great experience for us I'm afraid and wouldn't recommend it( staff were very pleasant though)

We enjoyed the night but service and organisation was fairly poor. Projected business levels were also massively incorrect. Would not buy a vip table at Bon Bar again.

We complained about our starter, Thai fish cakes, stodgy and not tasting of fish and the toughness of the beef on the main course. The two members of staff could only say ‘I’m sorry about that’. Our experience was tainted by the quality of food and what wasn’t done to address it.

This was family outing for Sunday lunch. Most of us arrived on time, then the stragglers quite a bit later. We greeted and made to feel comfortable and at home straight away. The staff looked after us very well, the food was exceptional, and Alice Grace singing just topped the day off for us. Seriously good smooth background jazz. Everyone was very impressed. We'll be regulars going forward. Well done!

Hi Nicola, We're terribly sorry you didn't receive your local ale with the gents tea. Had the lack of pint been pointed out to our staff you would have been given one immediately. We hope to see you soon, Jazz Sunday Lunch is always a lovely afternoon if you wish to join us again soon? Our next one is 2nd September :)
