Excellent drinks and service as usual, and were able to produce a delicious birthday treat for my guest at short notice.

We had a lovely evening at the sidecar but I was disappointed by the wine list which was very limited. However this wouldn’t stop me from returning again, very comfortable surroundings

I thought initially at booking stage that attitude to customer was quite hostile.. However, when we got there to celebrate my daughter's Engagement, the staff were attentive and gifted them with a celebration dessert which was a lovely touch. At a later stage €35 bottles of wine were ordered but €55 bite of Albariño were brought out without asking us. We brought difference to staff attention and were charged lower price. P

We had a gorgeous evening in the Westbury with my mum.I had booked the side car but the menu had changed and the matre dei couldn’t do enough to accommodate us.She very quickly organised a table in Balfes and a table afterwards in the lounge. The staff were attentive and friendly a wonderful experience.

Have been coming to sidebar for three years at this time to celebrate my husband Richard’s birthday. Staff always present him with a small cake and make him feel so special. Will be back next year. Love it.

Super Atmosphere, Great Cocktails. Would like to see "Writers Tears" Irish Whiskey in your cocktails. We experimented while at the Sidecar bar and your mixologist kindly made a fantastic 'Old Fashioned' with Writers Tears. He also tried 'The Irishman' single malt in a manhattan (The Irish Manhattan) and it really worked a treat
