About Lids Tapas & Cocktails
Lids Tapas & Cocktail Bar serves tapas “Spanish style” using carefully selected, locally sourced produce to lovingly create fresh authentic Spanish dishes to order. We also have an extensive range of cocktails made by our trained mixologists made to look good and taste better.
Unfortunately there was a large party upstairs when we visited, we had requested a down stairs table on booking but instead when we arrived we were taken upstairs. There it was very loud and rowdy, the party guests were inconsiderate of those dining and it spoilt it a little. We were disappointed as we visit lids regularly and usually enjoy the whole experience. Apart from this the staff and food and drinks were amazing! I'd maybe suggest closing upstairs when functions are on so other guests can enjoy a conversation when visiting.
Lovely evening, good food, excellent service, and made to feel very welcome
Great food, fab atmosphere and above excellent service
Found it to light in downstairs bar waiter and waitresses need some improvement not very approachable
We had a lovely evening, the food was excellent and the staff were very welcoming and very friendly.
Fab evening, relaxed atmosphere, great food (had the Set MenuTapas for 2), swapped 1 dish and no problem very accommodating. Service was brilliant. Looking to book again soon.
The service was excellent, the waitress who served us went above and beyond, thanks for a lovely evening
This is my second home
Very pleased with everything However it would have suited us if we could have a variation from the set menu as we did not like the calamari or meat balls But still would not put us off coming again
Waiter was very pleasant and helpful Food and drinks were delicious.
Couldn’t fault any of it. Great place to visit for brilliant food and cocktails
The two waitresses that served us were fantastic. Friendly, helpful and very polite. Gentleman on the bar also impressed us. Thankyou lids, I will definitely be returning even just for one of your pornstar martinis. Yum!
Food quality just massively dropped. I used to recommend it to all my friends.
Perfect. Thank you
THE worst service I have ever received in my life. I had a table booked for 8:15 for my boyfriends 21st tonight, we arrived at about 8 and received no welcome until 8:15 when finally we were advised they were “looking for somewhere to put us”. The waitress left us for 15 minutes and we were not offered a single drink during this half an hour wait for our table that we had booked weeks in advance!! Seated at 8:30 on a table which had been available the entire time we were there so clearly a miscommunication between staff. We still were not asked if we would like a drink...5 minutes later we decided it was not worth it, our mood had been ruined by such poor inattentive service so we had left, undoubtedly no one will have noticed we left as no one appeared to be serving us anyway. Despite any of the above, I must add the menu was poorly set out and most of which was in foreign language. It is safe to say I will never recommend anyone to visit here which is disappointing as I have heard highly of this bar, and I will never try again. We were both really looking forward to a night here which was ruined to say the least. Very very very poor. Just to top this off, we went straight to Relish in cleethorpes after this and within 2 minutes of walking through the door, we were welcomed, seated, shown the menu and offered drinks! Now that is service in case you didn’t know.
Came for a girls night out after having been recommended by a colleague. Really enjoyed our evening. Staff very attentive when we first arrived and once we had sat down left us to enjoy our evening ensuring we had what we wanted without being over powering. We sat upstairs which was good as we didn’t expect to still be there when the entertainment started, but enjoyed it for about an hour before leaving. Thanks everyone! Really great night. Fab food. Great atmosphere. Will definitely be back. 👍
Everything about the experience was excellent Loyd andTom looked after us Very well They are a credit to your establishment We Will highly recommend you and definitely be back Thanks Pete and Jo
Hi and Thank You for the Tapas. We had a great time just a few nice comments as it didn't bother us but could help. Meatballs were cold when they arrived yet why would we most as all else was great We reserved for 4 but sat at a table for two and then moved to a more suitable table Meal was great and what we would have liked for ultimate ease is the meal deals really need English translation but no negative just want to help Thank you
Visited for our anniversary, great food and service will definitely be back.
Booked in advance for a hen party of 10 on a Saturday afternoon, great communication including sending across menus and confirming via email, when we arrived we were shown to a lovely spacey table and the drinks and starters were with us within 5 minutes. Food was absolutely gorgeous, and plenty of it! Really reasonable prices and staff couldn’t do enough for us. Would 100% recommend for big party’s but also prefect atmosphere for couples.
Fantastic food, service great, will definitely be going back
Good food promp service value for money and free magician thrown in
We was not happy with our food at all. We ordered the set menu A and within 5 minutes we had our cheese board brought out and all of the other dishes. We was only on a tiny table and barely had any room to eat from our plates. Majority of the dishes didn’t taste great especially the paella as it had been burnt and taste like the bottom of the pan. It was such a shame as it was my birthday and me and my partner had both been looking forward to it for over a week.
Firstly this review is based on our previous visit Friday 31st May only and whilst this review is negative what I will say is that we have been several times before on a weeknight and always had a lovely meal which I would rate very highly, however on this occasion our experience was a poor one. Very busy on arrival but we were quickly seated at our table with drinks orders taken. We asked what Gins were on offer but no drinks menu available to peruse the list. We ended up going downstairs to see what type of gins were available....... The menu was covered in food and stuck together l, we had to prise it open and read between the dried food, the menus were also on paper and very flimsy particularly when wet! We ordered bread for our table but it didn’t arrive quickly and when it did it had very little oil, no balsamic vinegar dip only the garlic alioli. Our food order was taken using an A4 notepad which had 3 other orders on it (how do they separate the order in the kitchen?). At the time we both remarked that there would be something wrong with our order! We ordered 6 dishes one being a lamb tagine...... we got the beef stew!!! Or at least beef instead of lamb! The chef was adamant we had lamb however we both tasted and agreed it was beef! We exchanged for meatballs which were very bland and tasteless! The other dishes served were ok but nothing more, we’ve had far better here before and certainly at other restaurants! The service was ok however it was very chaotic with no sign of any organisation.... we had a couple of further dishes brought to our table that we didn’t order (we politely pointed this out rather than take the dishes 😀). We spoke with a waiter and the barman before leaving both of whom were apologetic however I was confused when told that the weekend was not the best time to come as it was always busy and as a result the quality of the food was somewhat poorer than when in the week and less busy!! All in all not a great evening but like I said we have been before and had good food, we put this experience down as an off night and will visit again in the future however should the next experience be poor it may be the last visit!
