I'd reserved an area just for drinks. Rachel was hosting and she was excellent. Got us exactly what we wanted and made us feel very comfortable. Thank you.

Warm Prosecco. Part of food order forgotten. Apologetic staff reduced bill by 20%

We were very impressed with the surroundings, the atmosphere and the staff both in appearance and attitude, however we were disappointed with the food, we had chicken, bacon salad and burgers which were presented nicely but found to be dry. That did not spoil our eve and we will come back

Sunday lunch was delicious! Good value for money. I was especially impressed with the braised cabbage!! Not often a meal highlight.

The waitress was friendly and we enjoyed the meal however it took a while when it came to the service (waited a little while before the food order was taken and had to ask for the drinks menu during this time). Disappointed with the drinks, the cocktails were quite bitter and the price of lager shandy was more than a pint of lager which surprised me.

Booked my 30th here, we had a great time and the staff were very attentive. Organising it all was made easy by the sales manager Sian.

From the initial booking to the birthday party the service was fantastic. The atmosphere combines unique decor with engaging staff and fantastic food.

I booked a table for 8 at 5pm for a meal with drinks, but we were given the waiting tables and a tiny menu of starters or burgers. My squid was literally just squid onion rings and some chips, and the pork crackling was impossible to break, never mind eat. The food was so tiny we all had food immediately after.

Lovely bar, really quirky. Service was excellent and staff great. We had booked a table which was ready but we didn’t think the house music really fitted in with the vibe of the bar. We will definitely be back.

Love this place but a bit disappointed with the fact there were no chicken wings left at our booking of 7.30 PM. Also we asked for peppers and were given a big bowl of chillis which neither of us could eat. These were taken away but still didn't get any peppers. We were then billed for the peppers we didn't get. Staff very friendly.

Sunday Lunch is very good value for money - Well presented and we couldn’t fault the quality of the produce. The dessert was also welcomed - if you book online it’s included at no extra cost. Fabulous! The venue itself is impressive and perfect for any occasion if you like quirky interiors. Will definitely be back.

Really busy and found it hard to find someone to find our reservation and seat us, but once we got past that the service was great - girl with pink hair was excellent and seemed to be running it single handed. A few bits were off on the menu but thought the food was good and cocktails were excellent

Very disappointed with pilpil prawns. Really looking forward to them because we spend a lot of time in Spain and it’s one of our favourites. Didn’t eat the pil pil. It was prawns in garlic with none of the appropriate spices. This totally spoilt our Valentines night. Staff and manager were very polite. Eventually agreed to not charge but would have rather paid for a good pilpil.

I hired out Archie’s Lab for my 21st. The staff were lovely and extremely attentive and the room itself was gorgeous and a brilliant value for money. Thank you to everyone at Colonel Porters for providing me with such a great night

Great food and atmosphere, the food came relatively fast and the service was solid. The choice of music was a little off putting, but nothing to prevent me from returning

Three diners and they didn't have two of the choices, even though menu is limited.
