Excellent place for cheap cocktails

We went to this after the Theatre as they were advertising 2 for 1 cocktails between 5pm and 7pm. Excellent place and sat outside due to the heat. They do snacks and food but we didn't have those.

We popped in The Chameleon for a few cocktails. I found the whole experience very average. Some of the leather topped seating was a bit tatty and could of done with replacing. The cocktail I had was OK.

We ordered two of these cocktails and then asked for one to be remade as it was so bad. It was remade by the manager and it was worse than the first! To top it off they where served in wine glasses!!!

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.

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.
