Tipsy Tea is served Friday - Sunday 12.00 - 18.00
We have been for Sunday lunch several times and have seen it steadily decline If you have a function happening you should not open for lunch as you cannot cope I booked for 5 people my brother rang to make it 7 when we arrived it was done for 2 people therefore we got a table for 5 and 2 other people sat separate staff blamed the function Food when it arrived was cold I had to go to the bar to order a 2nd bottle of wine my brother had to wait 45 minutes to be served His lunch Then when the bill came it was overcharged
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.
A great bar with a fantastic theme! The staff are great, very friendly and welcoming. We had a small booking misunderstanding which was handled quickly and very satisfactorily. 10/10 All the way. Im sure we'll be returning time and again. Thanks to all
Lovely inside and enjoyed music. Service was really good initially as in quick and friendly service but got very slow. The food was ok ish but biggest complaint..it was cold and not alot of it. Did not enjoy cheesecake. Would return for drinks but unlikely for food. Did mention re food being cold and waitress said would mention to kitchen.
Great afternoon Tipsy Tea was amazing Staff very friendly..
Thank you for a lovely evening, food and service were fabulous.
Reserved an area for a birthday. Helpful staff.
Really enjoyed our evening at Colonel Porters. Staff were lovely, efficient service, great music & atmosphere. One of my favourite bars in town.. would definitely recommend.
Enjoyed a very good Sunday lunch with friendly staff and comfortable surroundings. The value was fine although the puddings seemed a little pricey for what they were. This is becoming one of our favourite places for a good Sunday lunch.
Another great evening.. music and people make the venue.. roll on the next one. 🕺💃🥂.. cheers!!
Brannon & all the bar staff were absolutely lovely and took great care of us all night. Thanks for a great Christmas party!
Surprise Tipsy Tea whilst Christmas Shopping with my Mother
Brilliant Xmas party!!
We booked in advance and upon turning up, the friendly staff were able to help us after our booking had been removed from the system. It transpired that the venue had a booking from about 3.30pm so we can only assume that we were bumped out to suit that. Anyway, the great staff took our order and brought over our afternoon tea. Other than the sliced white bread being stale / dried out and the scones being hard as rocks, the quantity of food was great and the prosecco washed down those hard and dry bits. The place lacked atmosphere due to lack of customers, i guess that this must have been due to the notice on the door that essentially turned people away, saying last orders at 2.45pm due to the venue being booked out. I dont know if we will be back, we were looking forward to the atmosphere more than anything, but to us it seemed that the larger group booking took priority and us two who still spent almost £70 for our afternoon tea were of less importance. I hope this is accepted as an honest picture of what we experienced and dont let it spoil your decision, just be careful of those large group bookings bringing in the big money.
Lovely Tipsy Tea for a birthday treat, cocktails were delicious, atmosphere was great, staff very friendly and helpful, most of the food was good but my only gripe was that the sandwiches were a bit dry and there were no pigs in blankets, which is why I’ve given only 3 stars for value for money, otherwise an excellent afternoon!
The staff were really disorganised and didn’t seem to know what they were doing. I booked a table for Christmas afternoon tea over a month ago, received a confirmation email and then a reminder email yet when we arrived the staff didn’t seem to have any details of our booking or the Christmas afternoon tea offer. Great venue though and food was really nice.
The buffet for veggies was very poor Nice peppers but nowt else Nee plates Great service Great cocktails Late night music was pants Great venue Would do it again
Great Sunday roast
Excellent quality food at a very affordable price, good friendly service, we will definitely be visiting again.
Lovely bar with a great atmosphere and nice cocktails!
I can’t thank the staff at Colonel Porters enough, from the initial booking with Stacey all the way through to the guys who worked their socks off on the evening! The atmosphere was fantastic, Archie’s Lab is such a great venue, so many great compliments from all who attended the party on the venue, staff and the food. Thank you all so much for helping create a fantastic evening for us all!
Had Sunday lunch. V good on the whole except pigs in blankets could have done with more minutes in oven - bit under cooked. Also, when been before only charged nominal amount for pint of lime & soda - £2 this time. Service excellent - nice beer.
My only gripe was the portion size of the roast topside of beef. For £14.95 we expected more than what was served to be fair. Nothing wrong with the quality though. All three courses were very nice.
Had a fantastic afternoon on Saturday for my hen-do. The tipsy was lovely and the lounge area was great for my party. 10/10! Thank you
