Did not receive any email from the restaurant regarding closure and whether if my booking will be delayed to another date. Terrible customer service. Due to coronavirus I did not go but it would have been nice to receive an update regarding my booking.

we had an excellent event at Colonel Porters. The staff were very attentive, and helped to get everything right fo us on the day. The food was excellent, and the quality of the drinks were fantastic. A special thanks to Sian for helping me to plan the event, and to Beth on the night for making sure everything went smoothly.

The food was decent but the service was terrible. The waitress barely spoke to us and just looked at us blankly half the time. She was pleasant when she did speak so unsure why it felt so frosty. There was no basic customer service skills or questions asked. We had a voucher and she didn’t seem to know what it included even though I gave it to her. We were supposed to get tea or coffee and not once were we offered this. Once we ordered drinks we had to wait over 20 mins for these as she forgot Despite writing it down. I wouldn’t have minded if it was busy or understaffed but it was not. It’s not surprising that on a Sunday afternoon it wasn’t busy as I imagine it’s not somewhere people return based on my experience. We were stuffed in a corner under the piano with electrical wires hanging over the back of my seat which I feel is a clear health and safety risk. There were plenty of tables so unsure why we were put on this one. Also the whole place smelled bad too, like a dirty mop smell. Based on all of this I would not return. It’s a shame as I have visited for drinks before and had a great time.

Afternoon tea was delicious. More expensive than others in the area but wouldn’t put me off coming back Waiter / mixologist was absolutely lovely! So passionate about his cocktails it’s a lovely change to see someone like that in the industry! Already planning a trip for Sunday lunch!

The food was excellent but unfortunately the place itself was so very cold we had to leave straight after eating. When this was mentioned to the manager he said "he was dashing around so hadn't noticed. When we left at 2.30 the place was still quite empty. Put the heating on!

Our host was amazing. He was very welcoming and happy to adapt everything to suit us. He gave us advice on the cocktails and made substitutions to suit our taste! The food was great and the live music just topped it off. Would definitely come back.
