A pleasant afternoon

Never been in here before but thought we would call in before a dinner reservation up the road. Beautiful and querky decor with friendly and attentive staff. Shame I didn't get the young lads name on the bar (Italian/Spanish accent), great drinks knowledge and made the effort to say goodbye to us... read more

Very friendly, lovely atmosphere. We sat at a table that had been reserved, but they did not rush us at all. The food was really nice, highly recommend the fish finger sandwich!

I visit here quite often as a place to meet up with friends before venturing elsewhere. The outdoor area is lovely to sit, drink and chat. The staff are friendly, and attentive. I've eaten here once, and did not enjoy it. The meal was expensive and the portion was tiny. I think they've changed the chef since then though!

Great place to meet friends for lunch (or anytime) . Good vibe, and great espresso cocktail. I remember the food was good but can't remember what I ate.

We visited this bar / restaurant twice. The first time, I had the steak pie & mash, hubby had the fish, we both had the delectable rhubarb & custanrd ice-cream. I have never had a steak pie with such a massive steak-to-pastry ratio! The meat was melt-in-the-mouth. Hubby was exceptionally jealous, so we had to go back so he could... More

Fabulous food from a good menu, not a huge choice but, that is not a bad thing!! The mixed starters are fab! I don't often do Burgers as they are usually mass produced NOT here 100% Beef or Chicken - Fab!... More

I absolutely love this place! The first time I came it was during the heavy snowfall of January 2013, we had a table facing the glass wall within the restaurant and the beer garden looked absolutely magical, coated in thick white snow and fairy lights! but that was two years ago, I recently visited again on Tuesday afternoon, 14th July...

We've been at Barlounge for 2 beers and 2 awesome burgers! The staff is really friendly (they plug my phone). You will be in a smooth and safe atmosphere.
