There was no welcome to customers or rush to serve anyone with two people behind the bar, there were hardly any people at all waiting at the bar and the bar tender still had to ask me who was next, I dont say this only ever being a customer, Ive worked in bars for years, they seemed in some sort...

happy hour meant the drinks were only £5.00. we tested 2/3 of the cocktails and couldn't complain about any. they were delicious. it was quiet, quiet, so the atmosphere was rather dull. really disappointed they no longer do any food as it was wonderful the last time i was there.

Great night out at this venue for a friends hen night. Music food and cocktails were really good. We missed happy hour but drinks were reasonably priced you must have the cocktail robot. Very busy with Christmas parties bar staff friendly and attentive. Would recommend for a night out.

I had previously visited this bar with 2 friends over a year ago and found the service to be great. On my most recent visit I walked into the establishment and walked towards a free table hoping to eat and drink and we sat for about 15 minutes awaiting acknowledgement to no avail. We then decided to visit the bar... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Unfortunately we no longer offer food as the kitchen and restaurant have been converted into further bar space/fabulous function room and as is common in many bars we do not offer table service. This was clearly not communicated to you and no doubt resulted in a disappointing experience. Should you... More

Suspect I caught them at a bad time. 6 PM Friday night or so. Two bar staff were busy chatting so let me wait a few minutes before serving me in an otherwise dead Pub. Then were going to charge me £1 for a bag of 30p price market crisps. Only they couldn't ring them through the till. Would visit... More

The Toy Shop is a great place for cocktails and drinks. We hanged out downstairs and enjoyed the atmosphere and funky music before discovering the lovely terrace that is a floor up. Even thou it was chilly they had it covered with heaters to keep us warm al fresco. Highly recommended.

I visited with a group of 8 of us at about 5.30pm for some cocktails, so we were very early and there wasn't a great atmosphere yet, so I can't comment on that. However, I would like to say how lovely the cocktails are. They aren't your average Sex on the Beach or Woo Woo cocktails, they are something special.... More

The 4/5 is because how good the cocktails and food is. Service was good. The live music is OK but not for everybody. Its not a massive place and it wasnt as 'toy shop' themed as I thought it should be. None the less good atmosphere and chilled night. GO DURING HAPPY HOUR.

Fantastic cocktail. Really tasty. And it's pretty cheap during happy hours. The atmosphere is really good as well. We were able to chill out and enjoy very easily. We order burgers later on and the burger was ON POINT! If ure looking for a drink or two, this is definitely worth being considered!
