I attended as part of a small group for you works Christmas meal. Venue was extremely busy but looked the part, at first glance a great choice and although after reading in here I had reservations about the staff, they were unfounded and they dealt with our complaints professionally. That unfortunately leads to to worst Christmas meal ever. Starters were... More

Quite surprised to see this place not have more 5 star reviews. I've decided to give it 5 stars based on the following. Firstly, I rang ahead to book a table and the person I spoke to was really friendly and very helpful. I mentioned that I would be using my Tastecard and she said this would be fine. When... More

I visited the Chameleon Bar with my partner as well as her mother and father on New Year. We had visited before and experienced an excellent night, however this time it was out of this world! Firstly, the bar looked amazing, Ice sculptures, balloons and many more tasteful decorations really added to the 1920's Great Gatsby Theme. As part of... More

The was great, I had scallops and then the duck, the service was also good, waiters were always around when you needed them. But it is also a busy birmingham bar, which we didnt realise until we arrived, what they provide is great, but if you are looking for a quiet/romantic place this isn't it.

I went with work for our xmas party on the 19th Dec. Like the previous review, we too were sat eating on the dance floor however the music hadn't started as we were seated at 6pm. I too had my phone stolen from the dining table. Its worth pointing out that only staff had access to our table at this... More

True to form! Visited on a busy Friday night. Having read the reviews I has a feeling that our entire group wouldn’t be allowed in, (7 people all Asian 3 ladies 4 guys). As mentioned I was reluctant to visit but was persuaded by my wife. After queuing for a short while approached the door and were advised on of... More

Booked private dining with some colleagues. Firstly the bouncer wasn't going to let of them in because of his shoes - what a joke there were guys in there with Christmas jumpers and football tshirts! Oh and buy the way loads with walking boots! Food was tasty but waitresses confused about this and that - in the end they made... More

We visited during the Christmas markets. Their menu consisted of about 10 meals, so how could they get anything wrong? Well our rare fillet steaks came out well done (a nasty over-charred taste). We sent them back . The staff didn't like this, so we cancelled them and went elsewhere. Just don't do it, avoid this restaurant, they aren't nice... More

I have never had a meal in the centre of Birmingham before and after wandering around the "Frankfurt Christmas Market" which was a waste of time and space I had hoped the meal would be good. It was alright but it did not inspire me. The menu choice for a "Christmas Special menu" lacked imagination and the stuffing was a... More
