I recently booked tickets for the event featuring Shola Ama and The Edwin Starr Band. My fiance and I took my parents and we paid for tickets that included a four course meal. We arrived early and enjoyed a relaxing drink, then went through to the dining room for the meal and the food was excellent - as was the... More

I've eaten in 1812 twice each time with friends and have come away feeling that it had been a special event without costing the earth. They offer set menus in the evening and Sunday lunch both of which are freshly cooked, beautifully presented and delicious whilst at the same time being fantastic value for money. The staff are attentive and... More

This is the real deal, forget the alcopop 'cocktails' served anywhere else. I'm a bit of an aficionado, and 1812 serves the best cocktails I've had anywhere. The staff have huge knowledge and are happy to experiment. But beware you don't need many drinks to feel the effect!

Fantastic restaurant. Wonderful food all at reasonable prices with a £15 for 3 courses deal on Tuesdays. Great service, clean and well kept, local history based theme to the décor.

Have often visited 1812 for cocktails with the girls. Ate here for the first time in Motets Day with a party of 4 and two young children. It will not be my last visit. Everything was outstanding, from the waiting staff to the food. I simply can't fathom why this place is voted 116 on trip advisor. We paid £14.95... More

I love 1812 and have spent many celebrations here, most recently my birthday. The barman was fantastic and asked me what flavours I liked and he created me a fantastic cocktail (and then re-created it several more times throughout the night) If you want a classy evening in a comfortable (mature) environment, this is the place to go
