Lots of lovely choices of food to suit everyone in our party. The meals were delicious and the service was excellent. We had a booth in the window which was a great position and very comfortable

Enjoyed our visit. Sat in the booths which is fractiously quieter than the rest of the bar. Lamb was over cooked but still able to eat. Not sure the prices reflect the quality of the food. A little overpriced I would suggest

We both ordered lightly battered fish and crispy chips and didn’t really get either. Love the place, but food can be a bit hit and miss.

My first time at the Deacon and I couldn't fault it. We were greeted very warmly, even though they were obviously very very busy, and the service from then on was also excellent. Food was lovely too. I'd definitely go back.

We really enjoyed our visit to the deacon. The ghnocci was amazing and the gin selection. I did however request a booth when booking the table which we did not get unfortunately

Our meal started off poorly when the waitress got our drinks wrong, and when we requested to change the drink to what we ordered, she pulled a face. We then ordered our food, the beef burger and fish ‘n’ chips. The food arrived as we had finished our drinks, you’d have thought we’d have been offered some more drinks? No, food just plonked on the table and the waitress walks off. Onto the food, the burger meat was very good, however, everything else on the burger was awful, it was greesy and just messy falling apart with every bite having to result in eating with a knife and fork. The fish was covered in far too much batter and filled with huge air pockets so was very deceiving to the size of fish you actually got. I’d describe it as 70% batter 20%air and only 10% fish, the chips were undercooked, not much else I can say on these. Usually you’d expect the waitress to come over about halfway through the meal to ask how everything was, if we wanted another drink etc, well, this didn’t happen despite her walking past 5 times, as well as other waiters/waitresses and even the manager. Our empty glasses were placed on the edge of our table so could have easily been spotted by anyone walking past. We finish our food and our plates are collected, again not asked if we want another drink, so we just ask for the bill. I pay on my card, with no tip as the service was the worst I’ve ever experienced, only to have my card thrown back at me once the payment had gone through. I’m extremely appalled by the service me and my girlfriend received on our anniversary meal which is upsetting to say the least. We most certainly will not be coming back and advising friends and family to stay away.

2 of us ordered mussels. We were told by the waitress that they were on the small side but we would get more- we didn’t. It was like a starter portion. I ordered salad with Korean chicken which was so salty as to be inedible. When the server asked about our food we explained our experience. After paying the bill a senior member came to speak to us. We told him how unsatisfactory our meal was and wouldn’t be back any time soon. He just nodded and apologised. No effort was made to improve our experience or compensate.

I had a fantastic meal with friends. The bar and restaurant were both busy but with a great atmosphere. The staff were attentive and professional throughout which allowed for good service.
