We come here every week and lately not that impressed. You have swapped the Prosecco out and the replacement is not nice. The food last night took way too long and our drinks had been empty for well over 15 minutes, trying to get someone’s attention was impossible so I had to get up and ask about both food and drinks - bearing in mind the place was only half full and plenty of staff on. One friend at our table gave up waiting and asked for her money back. The Hawker Roll I must say was so amazing and yummy when it finally turned up. We usually stay longer but left early not feeling the vibe to hang around and have more drinks

Booked online for a restaurant table like we have many times before. Didnt get to even order, got asked to leave after my 18yr old son and his girlfriend joined us to have dinner It was humiliating as the restaurant was full and we were very disappointed as we have come here for many years and never had a problem before. Went down the road and spent our money there instead. You need to change your licence or make it crystal clear on yr booking system or on your window walking in no children allowed unless they are with a parent or have ID to be 18. Even if they arent drinking alcohol or wanting just a meal.

A bit disappointing compared to previous visits. Ordered beer battered fries and only normal fries arrived. We queried and were told that beer battered fries not available. Would have been nice to know when we ordered. Waitress was not particularly friendly. Music too loud, very difficult to hold a conversation. Very limited non alcoholic drinks... would be nice to have some more interesting options. Not sure we will be going back in a hurry.

Love coming to the Corner Bar. I suggest if you want feedback from customers, that you do not use a site which makes you read and agree to screeds of T&Cs. Not a good incentive for time poor customers.

Excellent food and the best chocolate fondant we have ever tasted (and we’ve eaten quite a few)

The service was very average. I had to try and get waitress’s attention every time we wanted to order. I had to get up and ask for water from the bar which was delievered - without glasses which I had to stop another waitress for. I asked for standard size wine glass and was served and then charged for large - at $18 a glass!!! $172 for small plates for 3 with 2 glasses of wine and a beer is poor value for money. Food was okay but disliked the deep fried corn chips that came with the guacamole. Serving sizes not great. . Very noisy inside so difficult to have any conversation. Don’t think we will return. .

the portion of the chicken bao and pull pork taco were small. The crisp port knuckle weren't bland and the cabbage were a bit salty.

I have been a customer for years and I feel lately the service is not like it used to be as the staff seem to socialise a lot instead of focusing on the customers and the last several times I have had to call for service to order and approach the bar to get a drink. Hope you can get the service levels back to match the good food
