The service we reserved was horrendous!! We weren’t shown to table just told. Took them 20 minutes to come take our drink order. Another 20 minutes to bring them. Our pre ordered meals then took another hour after this to be served. It was afternoon tea!! Not a banquet! You stated we needed to have left the table by 3. Our food was not served till 2.30?? We had to ask for everything, more sandwiches, cutlery, our tea and coffee, milk and sugar, plates!! We might as well just served our selves. When leaving it took the early 2 leavers 15 minutes to pay and then when the rest of us left almost 45 minutes. I have never had such bad service. On a positive the place is decorated well. Toilets were gross tho

We had a fantastic time at the Escapologist and will be heading back again soon! The escape rooms are great fun and the staff were all too happy to help with issues we had with drop outs on the day. We did both open escape rooms and then had the bottomless lunch. The food was fantastic, and the bottomless drinks went down VERY well haha. I would 100% recommend this to anyone who hears about them and will be taking friends again soon! 5 stars!

The escapologist was a great venue to hold our first LGBT+ Social. I would recommend this venue for groups.

Was so looking forward to your gin evening. Was a little disappointed in how quiet it was. Would have thought more than 2 people would have been there for it! The 1st duo who played were fab. Again a little disappointing that there was only 1 lady there to show us 3 gins. The party for the children that were there were very noisy and didn't seem to have any consideration for other customers. We did see a few that had one drink then left. Perhaps the parents could had more consideration ? Apart from that there was a great selection of Gins.

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.
