Tipsy Tea is served Friday - Sunday 12.00 - 18.00
Cocktails were a little expensive but we didn’t mind One of the meals wasn’t quite right, but the staff were great and it was fixed immediately
Went with friends to eat, the food was great and nothing was too much for the staff.
Met friends for drinks great idea being able to book a table without having to eat very nice place thanks for the service will Defo be back
Had a lovely day on Saturday, staff were very attentive and friendly
Everthing was first class & we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The best Sunday lunch we have had in along time. Will definitely be visiting again
The main meal (Sunday lunch) was very nice and 3 out of the 4 sweets were lovely although My friend had to return her Rum baba dessert as she said it was extremely dry and couldn't even taste the rum. She was offered another one but turned this down - she was given a glass of fizz instead which was a lovely touch. Staff were very friendly and appeared knowledgesble especially when we asked about the various gins on the menu. But disappointingly the Service was poor and slow . We waited a while for the food and between drink orders, we order coffees - one came first and then the other 3 came about 15 minutes later and were cold. I was slightly disappointed as it was for a special occasion for my friend - not sure if I would return for food but would possibly have a drink as the bar and restaurant are done done amazing and very quirky.
Such a lovely afternoon tea!! Great value. Everything was delicious. Lovely atmosphere. Staff attentive and friendly but a little sleepy..
Fantastic evening. The service and atmosphere was superb and THE FOOD!!! Fantastic event location and thoroughly re moment it.
You guys were the best! We were in on a hen do and had an absolutely mint time! Your staff were so friendly and helpful even though it was obviously busy! Thank you!
Great atmosphere for Mother’s Day lunch. Kids well catered for with half portions. Drinks were exceptional with a huge range. We will be back
Slow service, Average food for price.
Loved it - quirky, clean beautiful decor and theme and lots of fun. Tasty food and cocktails
Absolutely loved the decor and feel to the bar! Only rated down on food and drink as the only vegetarian option on the menu was not available for one of my guests. Bar was a little cold, but cant be helped sometimes in the north east! Apart from that perfect birthday meal, will definitely return!
Thank you it was an amazing night and the staff couldn’t do enough for us
The food and the staff were lovely. Very quiet as it was a Monday night but still a good place for dinner.
First time eating here and thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday lunch one of the best we have had!! The staff were all friendly and helpful. We will definitely be returning.
What an amazing night we all had for my birthday such a perfect venue for my 1920s theme. Staff were all so friendly would highly recommend.
Loved the teapots
This was the first time we'd been to Colonel Porters and had booked it for our Valentines night celebration. The surroundings were just to our taste and the food excellent. Good selection of drinks and friendly staff made for a wonderful night. We'll definitely return.
Great food and drinks, quality, quantity and presentation was exceptional. Service was a mixed bag of mostly absolutely on point and going above and beyond, but occasionally mysteriously absent for periods. Great experience, would recommend.
Booked Archie's Lab for a private party and would highly recommend it to others
Recommend the Tipsy Afternoon Tea, great way to spend an afternoon. The chef was very accommodating with a number of different dietary requirements.
Arrived early and was greeted by a lovely gentleman that sorted our table. Lovely bar lovely atmosphere would highly recommend it. Was a little disappointed in the menu. We had a look online and the dishes that tempted us there are no longer available. Which I know can happen. But when a menu says about the pig board /fish board etc and these are no longer available. The board we had was nice but I found the menu a little bit boring. To be honest if it had said that on the website we probably would of chosen somewhere else.
We were a table of 2 pushed between two parties and get a little bit uncomfortable... food was amazing though!
