The staff were all friendly and amazing food. The new girl and the guy behind the bar were very welcoming on arrival. Ben was very efficient at table service. Have to say we will be coming back.

I had my daughters 13th birthday party at The Escapologist. The staff were friendly, attentive and looked after us all very well. My daughter and her friends loved the escape room and the food was lovely and ready for when they came out.

This was my 3rd visit for the escape rooms and food. Although this time we decided to just stay for a drink and went somewhere else for food. We would have loved to stay for food but with a limited menu and nothing slimming world friendly we decided not to dine.

The staff on duty couldn't do enough to make sure my daughter and her friends had an amazing party. I would definitely recommend The Escapologist escape rooms, all the children had a fantastic time.

Really enjoyed the evening although as there was only 3 of us in the escape rooms it was quite expensive ... and with the meal I ended up spending over £120... so only a once in a while treat... but thoroughly enjoyed the evening... have been recommending to everyone and suggesting we do a midweek visit and with more people to keep the individual costs down

We had a great time. It was early teatime on a Sunday and the restaurant was quiet - until the party of just pre-teenaged girls arrived. they could have looked after us better, nor been more accommodating. Food was ace too. very many thanks

No complaints with price or service, but chicken burgers were very average quality and annoyingly presented- very messy due to style of chicken and being served on a small plank of wood. Atmosphere unfortunately not suitable for a group of kids on a Saturday afternoon following escape room fun- groups of drinkers and town pub atmosphere was not what we expected. Certainly won’t eat here again with kids.

The staff were so friendly and helpful. More than accommodating. The games master was fab for the escape rooms. The food was really nice and homemade. Well worth a visit for many reasons.

Cam was amazingly professional and ensured my daughter’s party went well. His customer service was second to none and the rest of the team followed suit: attentive, friendly and went the extra mile. The only thing missing was the group photo we were promised at the end.

This is a cool bar, with good food and drinks let down by being understaffed. The staff are great, helpful and hardworking, there’s just not enough of them.

Amazing food! Delicious! Seemed a little pricey that the bottle of wine still had the price tag on of £5.90 from the wholesalers so thearetically I was paying £24.10 for a sharing platter. I understand that it was valentines day, but I also I pre-booked the meal (the restaurant was very quiet) and hoped for the Goats Cheese Log but was told "I'm not sure if there is any left" so I told her okay if not, I'll have the soup. She didn't come back out and tell me that the cheese log had definitely ran out, I physically watched her write down soup on her note pad and came out with the soup. Customer service to the young girl with the glasses and the nose ring needs re-visiting, but apart from that it was a lovely atmosphere, candlelit and me and my partner had a lovely evening. Thank you for making it special x

Only negatives are we got an email reminder for booking at 13:30 never said what it was for. So was late for room booking as they called up 20mins after booking was due. To be fair we still got the full hour. Game room was very dark and hard to read clues and locks.
