Fantastic venue. Fantastic food. I ordered the Deli board as a takeaway, and the quality and quantity of food were superb. Can't recommend you highly enough.

Pairings has always been an outstanding place for excellent quality food and wine (with a good craft beer to start an evening too), but since last year we’ve only managed their home delivery Yorkshire Boards which are the same quality and highly recommended - but we do miss the atmosphere of Pairings itself. We will be visiting again very soon.

We go to pairings for the atmosphere and the staff, of course the wine and food. But you can go most places for wine. Pairings take time and effort and you get to try wines you don’t get anywhere else. The food is high quality and you never leave hungry. We’ve been going for years now and it’s even got to the point our dog gets greater before us with a treat and a cuddle. We have been getting take outs during Covid and we buy vouchers so we can come back as soon as it’s safe. If you want a relaxing not shove as many people in as you can place Pairings is the place you need to try. Great for just a quick drink or like we love a few hours of quiet, amazing atmosphere, food and quality wine

We had a fantastic takeaway and it was just as good quality as being in the wine bar. Great service and thank you for persisting when we didn’t hear the door!

Ordered a takeaway, a plater to share and a bottle of wine to celebrate my partners birthday. Lockdown birthdays can be a letdown, but the food and wine made up for it, it’s was fantastic. Would definitely recommend.

We love Pairings Wine Bar. It’s our favourite place to eat and drink. The staff are all very professional and have vast knowledge of all the wine and food they serve. We love to bring our friends and family to Pairings too when they visit us (pre-Covid, and hopefully soon post Covid). It’s always got a great atmosphere too.

Staff were fab for delivering my new years gift hamper, I was a little saddened to not recieve any little pickles with the hamper but I suppose that they would spoil faster than everything else that was vacpacked and beautifully presented. The cork pins really did make a difference in getting the Mussar cork out of the bottle. Thank you for the expert advice and guidance. I've been and eaten in the resturaunt a few times too and always had a lovely time. I show Pairings to friends I want to impress because of the quality and atmosphere of the whole dining experience.

We ordered the Deli Platter for delivery, after COVID caused the restaurant to close for New Year. As always, fabulous quality, impeccable service (even with delivery) and a wonderful evening. We were sad to not be sat in their beautiful wine bar but the food was just as good. Thank you Kelly and team. X
