Nice looking place but the most uncomfortable seeing you will find anywhere - not a chair in the place, rock hard seats and stools at a height to give you back-ache - to stop you getting too comfortable? Cocktails pleasant enough but unremarkable and overpriced. Won't be going back.

I felt like this new menu is pretty sub-par. I have been going to Hyde and Co for the past 3 years and my most recent visit has been the most dissapointing. The corn syrup cocktail I had tasted OK at first, but as I went through the drink the aftertaste was pretty awful. My partner and I felt like the new menu hadn't been tested properly and thought that some cocktails were not best placed on their menu. Plus, it's quite difficult to understand what the cocktails were and what they contained... we spent most of the visit googling the ingredients! I also felt £12 for some cocktails were quite dear and were not worth the cost. Additionally I was a bit let down by their being a rowdy hen party next to us. We ended up having one drink and leaving to go elsewhere in the end.

Excellent service with friendly staff. Clever cocktail theme was a nostalgic blast from the past. Only downside was we were next to the bar and it was a bit noisy whilst cocktails were being blitzed to hear friends conversation, but we had a great evening. Enjoyed the low lighting and laid back music.

Menu was very different. Found it quite difficult to find gin based cocktails. Only seemed to be 2 or 3?? Was not sure if you would also make classic cocktails or just your specials. Advice could have been given.

Great as always, changed my drink without charge because it wasn’t to my liking. We were not a fan of the new menu, preferred the last menu that wasn’t so experimental, glad they could still make the classics. Bring back the cheese savouries to make it a 5* bar.

2 large groups of hen dos and the low ceilings made it very loud. The waiter was adamant to take our menus away once we had ordered I assume so people don’t take them but the stories in the menu and the thought behind it was part of the experience which we missed.

It’s a really cool place with knowledgeable staff. Would be nice to have more info on ingredients in the menu. If you don’t know the brand names of spirits it is confusing. Also, I love the dim lighting but would prefer brighter lighting in the toilets.

Excellent service, the hostess asked what table we would like, then explained the menu and was really attentive when our drinks were running low. Couldn't recommend this place enough!

Our waitress was absolutely fabulous. Very polite, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. Couldn't fault her! She also accommodated us onto another table as I wasn't aware we only had the table for 1.5hrs. I'll definitely be returning. Thank you for a delightful evening.

Fantastic, engaging service from our waitress and very efficient cocktail making thanks to it being table service only. Some interesting cocktails, such as the peanut butter bourbon one

Amazing drinks, great selection and friendly staff. Maybe a table lamp on each table or slightly more lighting around to make the menus easier to read and this would be perfect!

We went midweek early evening, so was quiet. Friendly staff non-invasive. Was with a teetotaler with many allergies but still managed to concoct a delicious drink by all accounts - flat rate £4.50 it seems for non-alcoholic - same rate as HMS by Clifton Down Station. Good selection of cocktails, lively, elegant and accurate, without suffering from the epidemic in cocktail bars of needing to add ice lollies/irn bru/ haribo/ marmite to an otherwise cracking cocktail. Recommended to many friends and made me want to revisit my barwork days!

Fantastic bar, love the location and the prohibition entrance - really great atmosphere and we had a great booth. The cocktails are pretty pricey and VERY strong so you don't need many, but we really enjoyed our time here. We were here on a hen do and I would recommend to other friends and groups for a visit.
