Lovely in every way. Good quick hygenic service A cracked glass was used to serve drink in. This should have been noticed by staff and NOT been used at all.

Had a great afternoon and great variety of spirits & having the ability to try before buying is great. Also having the staff and head distiller so approachable and knowledge made it a really bonus and defiantly coming back!

Really great drinks, speedy service and appreciated the positioning of the umbrella to ensure everyone stayed dry! Definitely wish we could have tried the food but the food truck didn't arrive due to the potential storm. Will be coming back!

The first time we have been out for months. It was a beautiful afternoon under the shade of the chestnut trees. The app was easy to use and the service was quick and those waiting on us were helpful and friendly. I even ordered a bottle of gin from the shop and tonic from the app and this too came to the table. Looking forward to many more visits to come!

Even though pouring with rain it’s a pretty spot to be sitting in. We didn’t eat so reason for my rating. I’m sure it would have been as delicious as the gin

This was our first drinks out since Feb! We felt TOAD have a fantastic set up. They have created a lovely relaxed environment and we were really happy to be there. The app ordering was easy and effective and the bar/waiting staff were warm, friendly and efficient. Drinks selection was good and the pink gin went down a treat. Pizza was a welcome treat too. Will be going back.

We had a lovely time - very nice atmosphere and lovely drinks. Would have been good to just have table numbers for the app maybe - we kept ordering drinks to the wrong place!

Are tables and chairs cleaned after every use and new/disinfected menus used? I would have preferred the waiter to have tried to socially distance more (even though they were wearing a face mask which was good).

We loved the outside bar at TOAD. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable about the drinks that they serve and the ingredients that are used, They are clearly proud to be working there and very enthusiastic. We hope that they are able to get the inside bar running soon.

Overall a lovely day, the staff were rather stressed by what I thought was an innocuous request to pay for the tasting that they were already setting up to run. I explained I didn't need a person just the list of beverages and testers but this seemed to cause an disproportionate amount of stress to the staff which was entirely unintentional. The app for ordering didn't work terribly well and there is no mechanism to put allergies into the app at all which resulted in a drink I was allergic to. I did not bring this up to the staff as they were far too stressed to handle normal queries so bringing up a genuine problem I think may have floored the poor people. Suggestions: 1. Put in place a system for indicating allergies 2. Implement a program to reduce staff stress levels. 3. Choose a better ordering app.

Really good value for the drinks. The APP for ordering wasn’t easy and we managed to submit an order twice which TOAD were not able to resolve for us. Three hours at the table is probably more than is needed, I suspect some people didn’t turn up as, although fully booked, there were empty tables. Perhaps you should have to pay upfront for a round. COVID wise it was fine, sanitiser on tables, but I’d have been happier if they had also cleaned the tables as we sat down. Will go back!
