    The food was amazing here and drinks were too . Very professional and the waitresses couldn't do more for you . We had our table for about 3 hours and no one rushed us which was great . I will defiantly be back

    Left here feeling very disappointed indeed! I've eaten here three times now & the first time they didn't serve coffee, the second time they couldn't find two of the bottles of the wine I'd asked for and on the third time didn't have any of the wines I asked for! When I asked why I was told 'we've had a busy weekend.' My response really should have been 'but it's now Wednesday' or 'why haven't you stocked up since then?' but unfortunately I didn't. We then ordered our food & after half an hour was told what I'd ordered wasn't available so I picked two other things & they weren't available either. Couldn't understand why I wasn't told this as soon as I ordered. It took another half an hour for the food to finally come - it's tapas, why should it take so long? I certainly won't be returning for a fourth time!
    It's disappointing because there are hardly any nice places to eat in Barnsley & so I really wanted to give this place a good review but two pretty poor experiences in a row (the third one in particular) will not see me ever returning to The Old Chemist!

    Lovely food & drink. Friendly staff. Great value for money 4 tapas & 2 cocktails for £19.99! Venue is very comfortable and great environment. Only negative is that the service was very slow, but that was not a problem for us on this occasion.

    Lovely tapas and hanging kebab. Good service ( but it wasn't busy). Lovely staff.

    Tapas is very good value for money on Tuesday and Wednesday, as you can get 4 dishes for £10. Don't think I would pay full price though. The quality of food was really good, service good too though would expect when busy at weekends this would change.

    The steak is amazing. I few gripes. Fiddly, the steaks are served blue on a hot since and you cook to your preference at the table. This wasn't explained and I had to chase down a waitress to tell them how I wanted my meat cooked only for them to explain it then.

    Secondly, desserts. Come on. Even if you only offer a new York cheesecake, you need a dessert menu. A dessert cocktail isn't the same.

    The service itself was great. Very prompt and friendly. They had a live dinner too and she wasn't bad either.

    Very good prompt service and the chicken kebabs were delicious. Slightly expensive however.
