We only had drinks no food but this little place is a real gem. I could have spent all night looking at the variety of wines for sale. The waitress could not have been lovelier. So cosy and chic. Loved it.

Never cease to amaze! It’s an amazing little gin bar, the atmosphere is always good, service was was excellent! Riddling staff all talk to you, about your night or day and take your order with a smile on their face! If no one has been yet, I’d highly recommend it :-)

I found having to order from an online menu on my phone a problem, as there was a very poor internet signal in the Riddling Rack. It took quite a few minutes to get to the right menu page, which was frustrating when I just wanted to relax with my daughter.

Ordered a bottle of fizz to go with table but it wasn’t on the table. Waitress arrived and asked for our drinks order. When I told her I’d paid for a bottle she had no idea and went away for a while only to return with it. Imagine if I wasn’t there to tell her this my surprise bottle wouldn’t have been there for my friends birthday. We ordered a cheese platter for 3 on the day but we’re give 4 knives a and forks and 2 plates. Had to go and ask for another plate and the pretzels we’d also ordered which hadn’t arrived

Service was good. Food choice was limited. Toasties were very well done, small rounds of bread with not much filling. Disappointed as haven't experienced poor food in this bar before. I hope this was a one off were the food is concerned. Wine choice excellent. All areas kept clean.
