Think it was bad that I asked mayonnaise then said there was none so said we have garlic mayo so I said yes but then to get unexpectedly charged for it. Wasn't very clear and transparent.

The Cocktails were delicious and the staff who made them highly friendly and knowledgeable. The food was good, but for the price I think there could have been more toppings on the pizzas. The staff however were ver friendly and made us feel very welcome. Great venue and great atmosphere.

Where do I begin. It was not the best of starts when the waitress spilt a tray of drinks all over me and my bags. It got no better. The service was so slow, it took about 30 minutes to get our drinks. When the food came my daughters pizza was not cooked properly and watery on top. The rest of the food arrived except for one of the people in our party who never got hat food at all!!! 5 minutes after we had finished our food they came over and offered the pizza that was late as a takeaway. Sadly overall a very disappointing experience.

The pizza was wet and soggy with little taste, they didn’t even have original Coca Cola because of the sugar tax!! Wouldn’t go again!

Food and drinks were divine. Service was absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately I do not know the name of our waitress but she was brilliant at customer service despite being rushed off her feet. She even decorated the table for my friend as it was her birthday. Thank you so much!

Had a really lush meal for my birthday, the staff were so friendly on the phone when I altered my reservation a couple of times! The atmosphere was great, the music was quite loud so would have struggled to hear a big group but for a small group it was totally fine! The initial service was really good and quick but towards the end of our visit it took a long time for staff to return for orders and with drinks, but this may have been due to it being a busy Friday night. The meals were made really quickly and were fantastic. We weren’t offered any dessert menu which was a shame as we all wanted one! We ended up going elsewhere for a dessert as we couldn’t get the attention of any waiting staff. The meal was really reasonably priced and 241 cocktails were great with a wide selection. We were all happy with our food and drinks - even some of my very picky friends! I would definitely come again as we all had a really nice time. P.S. Super great that you’re using paper straws but the Frosè was so difficult to drink with it (couldn’t suck anything through it then it disintegrated inside the glass almost immediately) maybe there’s an alternative!

Booked the mezzanine for a hen party. Staff were really friendly and helpful in accommodating our booking and keeping in touch. On the day staff were helpful in setting out the room, ordering food and drinks. Would definitely recommend

Fabulous night. Food was going to be later than we were expecting so we were given complementary sharing starters & round of drinks. Waitress was excellent, bar staff really good & had great night. Already booking up again.

Poor, slow service. Pizza base very spicy. Cheesy, central fries more like crisps and very herby. Was looking forward to going, a big disappointment. Doubt very much we’d be back.

I would totally recommend Central Oven and Shaker, they couldn’t have done enough for me in arranging a private function ensuring my night was as good as it could be... Service was great, food was delicious and as for drinks, cocktails were so tasty and it’s buy one get one free, couldn’t ask for anything more!!! Thank you Central Oven and Shaker.

The food was great and fantastic value due to restaurant week. We both loved the pizza dough. Our server was a bit hit and miss though. She twice brought out food that wasn’t for our table and I had to get up and ask a different member of staff for cutlery for my main course.

Good food - great choice on the restaurant week menu. Two for one cocktails were really good. Our server was friendly and chatty, but the service was a bit slow at times.

Meal was great, cocktails were brilliant, atmosphere lovely. Blonde female member of staff kept taking food to wrong tables, she took our starter to one incorrect table first, and the mains to two before they got to us. My prawn linguini was a little cold on arrival, probably because it was taken to a couple of other tables first! Female member of staff with dark hair was our main server, but when we paid by card and didn't leave a tip via the machine (we always tip cash, used to work in hospitality!) she was really snarky and said 'have a good night' in such a sarcastic voice that I didn't tip at all, and this actually would put me off returning!
