Food came out separate so my little girl had ti pick off of our plates until her’s came out (starts and mains) When it did come out, it came out cold No one came to clear the plated or gave us the desert menu Wrong drink brought to table and then questioned it was because they had ran out of what we ordered so rather than letting us know they just gave us something else Over charged us £30 and took about 15mins for them to realise/work it out.

Terrible service, staff seemed more interested in talking between themselves, terrible wait for drinks/food and there didn’t seem to anybody in charge. I only paid the bill at the request of the ladies present as they wanted to avoid any fuss.

I have already left a fair review of my experience on trip advisor, to which your management has left a disgustingly inappropriate response. How do you expect to grow as a business if you cannot respond to constructive customer comments professionally? My husband and I were certainly not rude to your staff, by the way, I’d imagine they get their fair share of abuse working for management such as yours. I’ve never come across a business that has such contempt and disregard for their paying customers. PS. If you are going to leave abusive responses on trip advisor, spell-check is your friend. 😉

You haven't answered my question on if you're closing down or not because I dont understand how you make people sign a contract and not tell them in advance!!!

Says if you book online you get 50% off main meals. Charged £99 for 4 meals and drinks? Service extremely slow to the point we left without dessert as had sat for 25 mins with empty plates and no sign of anyone to clear away or order more drinks or desserts. Such a shame as we travelled from Coventry to treat my elderly mum on recommendations. My steak was cooked nicely and my partners linguine was lovely. My sons steak was raw rather than rare as was the potato and green beans which accompanied my mums pork (which itself was delicious)Unfortunately will not be returning.

Waited 1.5 hours for food to then ask where it was and to be told oh sorry it hasn’t been put through. Now it wouldn’t have been so bad if I was then told, we will rush it though and I’ll take % off your bill, nothing to try and salvage the experience so we walked away with 2 kids and no dinner!

The staff were lovely and most accommodating. The food and drinks were superb, however, the waiting time from order to food arrival was fairly long.

Nice place however it was cold. Needs some heating on or a fire. Food was nice however I could understand why it wasn't busy as the staff were next to useless. Our waiter had a neck full of love bites. They had NO pink gin. Slow service. Needs a good manager in there to show the kids how its done and it would be a good restaurant. We will try back in a few months.

Im sorry if your visit wasn't the best, the member of you mention about his neck has been spoken to, as for the pink gin im afraid at times as multiples, such as even Tesco some times run out of some items,if you had mentioned being cold we would have turned up the heating, as for the manager he is very good and if you had of bought your concerns to him you would have been pleasantly surprised, hope your next visit is more warming

We booked the funky bear for my friends 30th birthday, the place was pretty empty for a Saturday evening, after ordering our food, (half hour after being seated) we had to wait a further 40 minutes for our meals, which people who arrived after us got their food first. The service was awful, the guy who was our waiter forgot some of our order and didn't receive them until we had already finished our meals, when getting our bill, drinks that we hadn't ordered had been added on. Just a shambles from the start to finish, will not be returning

Not the best experience - my sons dinner came out without beans, spoke to 2 waiters/waitresses to ask for the beans, by the end of the meal the beans still hadn’t appeared and there attitude was “or well it’s to late now”. Not impressed we asked for the bill only to over charged by £5 for 2 drinks we didn’t have. Again no apology just tried to laugh it off!! Not impressed at all

Mid week get together, not many diners so lacked a bit of atmosphere and felt cold. Service was ok. Waitress was very rather to take our order, felt rushed to make my decision. Despite the rush to take the order the food took a long time to arrive. We asked for water for the table after buying four gins. We were all driving so chose water with our meal. This did not arrive so had to ask again. The meal was nice, mashed potato could have been hotter. We all orders puddings which were nice but two were on the small size which we did feed back on. The price was £6.50 so not cheap but felt cheated due to small portion, although served in a huge dish. The comments fell on deaf ears initially but when we paid the bill and left a tip The waitress who was pleasant apologised for the small portions. I was really looking forward to trying this place and eat out often but I’m afraid I won’t be rushing back and unfortunately would not be recommending to friends and family. Shame as it’s nicely decorated and has the potential to be a great place.

Poor service, waited over 1hr for food weren't made aware when ordered. Restaurant wasn't even busy. Asked for starter to tie us over never arrived, food came and was wrong, asked for ketchup with dinner never arrived. Spoke to manager who had absolutely no interest, was rude and careless. Not a single apology. Bill was incorrect, had extra drinks and meal on there. I have wanted to go to the funky bear for so long and I was absolutely gutted and how awful it was.

Was very disappointed that 4/5 of us had specifically gone for the roast burrito and after ordering (all wanted beef), was told that there was only enough beef for 2, so only 2 of us could have burrito. However, the food and service was amazing... will definitely be returning and hopefully we can all have the burrito next time.

Good food, staff were friendly and welcoming. Apart from a slight hitch after ordering drinks as the wrong drink was served but was offered it free due to the error made, service was good, food was lovely and had a very pleasant evening overall.
