Cocktails to die for!

I called this bar to book for a few birthday drinks however they advised no reservation was necessary The only negative - when I got to the bar I felt interrogated by the doorman who I thought at one stage was not going to let us in as we had not booked... Slightly confusing! The bar staff were... read more

Disappointing would be the most honest way to describe the Toy shop. What looked to be quite an exciting concept judging by the website (more so the old one), is let down somewhat by average food, cocktails that lack any depth of flavour and hit and miss service. Upon arrival, you must pass the rather unaccommodating doormen (I believe they... More

Just came for for brunch.. I asked to have two sausages rather then one and one egg rather then two eggs and was told the chief is very strict about about changes in his menu.. Not the reply I was expecting. I also asked for no mushrooms and this seemed to be a problem too.. Considering the price you'd think... More

Hi There, Firstly I would like to apologise for the service you received when you came for brunch at the weekend. The response you received It is in no way indicative of how we treat our guests and certainly not our normal code of practice. Please could you drop me a line directly on jamie@thetoyshopbar.com so that I can personally... More

The cocktails in this place is brilliant and we had dinner there as well. The place can get quite busy so you have to book in advance! The service can be slow as the place quite packed very quickly. Even though, the cocktails were fun and unique it is very expensive!

Nice bar and great value for drinks if you go happy hour which is I believe 5-8 however service is very slow. Overall nice bar with good seating area. If your looking for a nice place for drinks after work this is the place for you smile cheap and close to transport both bus and trains

Went to the Toy Shop for the first time this weekend and it was ok. Very different which is good but very busy took a while to get served. I found the cocktails quite expensive even though they are norm prices for cocktails the fact that 3/4 of the drink is ice and 1/4 is actual drink I wouldn't get... More

Been here twice now, the first was the day they re-opened after remodelling the place, the second a few weeks ago with mates. Good selection of cocktails albeit slightly small. One can easily go through the selection of individual cocktails in one sitting.....shall leave the larger sharing drinks for another time. As mentioned, the first time was after re-modelling......I think... More

Been here twice with friends and it is a great looking bar as they have really kept to the 'toy shop' theme! The choice of cocktails is slightly lacking however the ones i've tried are very good (if not a little pricey) It is definitely worth a visit though just to check it out.

We made a booking here for my friends hen night on Saturday July 4th. We had a great time. The cocktails were as tasty as they looked and the food was delicious too. We had a great time and will definitely be back.
