We were served a humors dip that had no garlic , olive oil or tahini in - completety tasteless . How did that even leave the kitchen? When I eat paella I expect smaller prawns to be de-shelled - who wants to pick-up small fiddly prawns caked in rice and sauce . My daughterr complained her dish was also a little tasteless
Overall it was sloppy and it seems there is little quality control in your kitchen

Booked the table at 7.15pm for 5 of us. By 7.30pm. We had put our order in all going just for a main meal, the restaurant wasn't all that busy, perhaps all full, by 8.40pm we still hadn't had our food.
We had to go and find our waiter and ask him what was happening, he was very apologetic and went to see where our food was.
We still had to wait another 10 minutes, the food was good, we like The Bar but this is the 2nd time this has happened, the first we had to leave without having our food.
We are not going to go for awhile till this problem in the kitchen gets sorted, they is something going on in there, maybe shortage of kitchen staff.
Very disappointed overall but was grateful for a 10% taken off the bill for our long wait for food.

The menu was varied and the food excellent and plentiful. The service was a little slow but that was understandable because the restaurant was so busy. The staff could not be faulted for pleasantness and memory! The downside was that I had requested on my booking request (via Bookatable) to if at all possible have one of the more relaxed tables outside of the main dining area. I booked early enough in the week for there to be plenty of availability showing when I went online so am not sure why they did not accommodate my seating request. The reason for requesting this particular seating was the avoidance of sitting near large parties where the noise from these is often overpowering and not conducive to ease of hearing the other people at your own table - this was the case last night with one particularly raucous group seated just behind our table.

Every time I eat here it's better than the last time . We had a family party last night and everyone loved everything about this venue

We have eaten here twice recently and the food is excellent. The staff are very polite and attentive - but not overly.
Lovely atmosphere, which in all, means you want to come back.
