We came in for after dinner drinks on Saturday night. The place was buzzing with people our own age ( 30+ to 50's) really nice mot to be surrounded by drunk kids. Music was really good too. We found a quieter corner downstairs to talk and stayed until 12:30am. Will brings friends back soon and try the menu.

I went here with a large party and our babies. They were accommodating and friendly, it was just the food that let them down. I had a steak which was fine and my husband had salmon, which really was poor and an absolutely tiny portion in comparison to the other meals. Would not return.

Really good food, quality of the produce was excellent especially the pork belly. Staff were very good; friendly, pro active and efficient - would definitely say it is worth a try!

The old chef from barnaby's struck again with this set course £25 affair. Went as a group of 9. Good solid choices cooked ( as usual ) to a very good standard... Been before - and will go again...

We ate here a while ago and decided to book Christmas dinner here. We had Christmas dinner at Barnaby's for the last few years and were very disappointed when they closed but on hearing that the Chef(s) from Barnaby's had joined Restaurant 69 we were very hopeful .... we were not disappointed, although the place is a "bar/bistro" it has...
