Very slow service waited 30 minutes for the started then a further 25 minutes for main and kept waited when we arrived for our reserved table. I can understand it being busy however it shouldn’t take that long.

The service from the staff was good but I was not impressed with my food itself, I paid for a overpriced ‘Jack the lad’ burger which was dry and tough to eat. My girlfriend wasn’t too keen on her food either as her food was too salty. I rarely complain about food when I eat out but for the price i was paying i did mention it to the waiter which i never like doing but felt it was right

My partner and I were very much looking forward to our meal here as from what we had seen on social media it looked like the food would be really good!! However the pictures do not resemble the food you are actually served. The staff were very good although we did feel like we were rushed within 10 minutes of sitting down we were served our starter. we were in and out in under and an hour after having a 3 course meal! Happy to pay the prices if the food is good but we felt the food was just your average pub meal nothing special about it all. My partner had the king prawns to start, there were 5 prawns served on a bit of iceberg lettuce. The food looka nothing like it does on social media and feel very disappointed after travelling from Solihull to go there!!

Burger was processed I’ve had better at the wacky warehouse. Skewers were fine but very small for the price. Place was empty on a Friday night. When we arrived it took 10 minutes before we were asked if we wanted drinks. We were sat right by the bar with waiters pushing behind our chairs to get past rather than walking around. Waitress gave us the wrong bill which we paid not realising before she chased us outside to the car to ask us to pay more. Would not return

I've been wanting to visit the Funky Bear for a long time after seeing it advertised on social media and I'm pleased to say that it did not disappoint! The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was lovely to have such a great selection of vegetarian meals and look forward to returning to try some more!

A lot of items were missing from menus due to a supply issue so that was a little annoying but other than that all was amazing !

Despite it being quite there was a wait for food, food was nice but needed to be hotter. Also some things on the menu seem quite expensive

The food was very average, the pork belly was very dry and so was the triple cooked chips. Service was very slow. Girls were lovely but too slow. Asked for 2 drinks still not received them 30 minutes later so had to ask again. On booking my reservation I made it clear it was my boyfriends birthday, not one thing was add special for him. Such a shame we had been looking forward to coming here for a very long time and was very disappointed. Would not go back again.

The food tasted nice however the service was appalling. We sat down at the table at 1.30 or just before and it was over half and hour before we could place an order! 15 minutes after ordering, the waitress came back and stated that some items that had been ordered had sold out - should this not have been made clear first? We waited over an hour for the food to arrive with no apology for lateness/waiting time. It was approx.3.15/3.30 before we could begin to eat. No one came around offering extra drinks so we had to keep going to the bar to get a drink. We then waited about 45 minutes before we had to ask to have our plates cleared. When we did have the bill later, there were several errors and we had to get the bill changed 3 times! We finally left the place at about 5.30-6. 4 1/2 hours after arriving. In that time, some guests only had 1 course. This was a large group and the food was nice when it did arrive but there was no organization and appeared to be no one in charge. The staff seemed unsure what to do and made no apologies for waiting time etc. I would not recommend as the service was one of the worst I have ever experienced. A shame, as the food was tasty.

Overall it was a lovely night out just what me and my partner needed food and drink were to a fantastic standard and a reasonable price. Atmosphere was warm and welcome. 1 tiny fault was a bit of confusion about waiting for our table but that was addressed with a complimentary drink. Thank you to all the staff for such a great service will look forward to dining there again some time soon
