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 have been here several times and I have to say the food and atmosphere have always been fantastic, especially when there is a live jazz band playing on Sunday afternoons. I recently came here for my works Christmas meal and the sea bass was outstanding, so light and tasty. The smoked duck started was also delicious. I highly recommend... More

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! Only minor issues and why I didn't give 5 stars were the presentation for the prawn salad could of been better and the fat on my pork belly could... More

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...
