My wife and I visited chameleons on a Saturday evening, this whilst the offer of 2-4-1 cocktails was on. A great offer, the cocktails were wonderful and the alcohol not scrimped on. Good atmosphere, wonderful setting, thinking of visiting for our daughters birthday, really liked this place, very much recommended. We did not eat there, but from what we saw... More

Visited with friends and enjoyed the two for one cocktails. They could have done with more serving staff as the cocktails took so long to make and lots of people waiting, but worth the wait. Friendly staff and good atmosphere

We went here for pre dinner cocktails which were two for one which is great value. It's a bit pretentious but that didn't bother us (we're from London and are used to it!!). Didn't eat here but the food looked and smelt very nice. Basically it's a posh pub.

The staff were amazing, they delivered excellent service. I visited on the 20th of May with a friend for the first time . Everyone was friendly and welcoming, especially our waiter Claudia. She made our visit quite enjoyable as she was very friendly , bubbly, efficient and personable. We felt like all our needs were taken care of. The food... More

We hosted a business dinner for clients in the lovely private room...although you shared the privacy with the sound of the ladies loos hand dryers going off! Service pleasant enough, starters amazing. Main courses also good but desserts just average. Not bad value for money and good wine collection. Nice experience but wouldn't rush back.

Visited Chameleon with work colleagues for our end of year review- we were all in dress down and made to feel that way as soon as we stepped through the door! Whilst the venue is nice, it is not big enough for the crowd it draws. 2 for 1 cocktails are great value and excellent selection available. However the service... More

3 of us went for a birthday me on 11th April service pretty poor, burgers tasteless. Toilets filthy, dirty lady sat selling perfumes should be cleaning the loos. Sent an email of complaint, now 28th and no response so shows what they think of their customers.

Visited for lunch with friends eating off the lunch menu in the bar. The lunch menu had a good choice of sandwiches and salads. I opted for the steak salad which was excellent. My friends both went for sandwiches and the portions were huge with a good sized side salad and portion of chips. We all cleared our plates. Excellent... More
