We were very disappointed. Having booked a table for 5pm to 6 pm for pre dinner cocktails. We expected the bar to be ready on our arrival. It took the bar man 15 minutes to sort things out before taking our order and then another 20 to prepare the drinks. The last of the 4 in our party was not served until 5.35 and then it was mixed incorrectly and we had no time to get this corrected as had to leave at 5.50 to get to our dinner. No time to enjoy what were nice cocktails. Its a real shame as previously service and experience has been very good. Paul Oppe

Very very noisy table near us which ruined the atmosphere completely. I booked in advance to celebrate my Husbands birthday and it was so noisy we could hardly hear each other speak. The table wasn’t great, it was disappointing.

Both staff members were friendly & chatty. Made us all feel very welcome for my daughters 18th. Music was great. Both staff ensured covid guidelines were followed. Made it a really lovely evening for us all.

We had a 2 hour booking and by 1.5 hours were rushed off our table. Brought the bill early without asking etc. We felt very rushed and two tables next to us who had arrived earlier somehow had longer bookings and weren’t being asked to leave.

I would like to say a massive thank you to Dani and the team at So Bar for the brilliant party we threw for my partners 30th! The room looked classy, elegant and was the perfect size. The staff on the bar were polite, accommodating and so helpful. My boyfriend had the best night and I can’t thank you all enough. Would definitely recommend So Bar as a venue to host a private party to anyone! Thanks again. Phoebe

The person who booked our table was unable to come due to Covid. They called the bar and had the booking amended. However, the staff appeared to not have been updated and it was quite awkward for our guests. Furthermore, the table was booked from 9-1 however at 10pm our party was asked to leave the table. This added to our uncomfortable experience.

Charming, efficient service. Good atmosphere, nice decor. Delish food & drinks. Points off for uncomfortable stools & tiny table for two.
