Went here just for drinks, reserved a table prior to visit for 7pm. Arrived on time, there was only 2 of us having drinks but were on a table for 8 people! Didn't bother me too much, however it would have been nicer on a smaller table. Got told when we arrived that we would need to be gone by... More

Interesting décor and 'trendy' setting. Good service. Enjoyed a very tasty lunch of mango chicken wrap (and the wrap was warmed which so many places don't do!). We will return here - which is a good indication of how much we enjoyed it.

We ate at Circle Bar on their Cajun and Creole taster evening. I ate some months ago at a Michelin star restaurant in Edinburgh and the attention to detail and taste diversity in each dish was very similar and quite frankly sensational.

This is a regular choice for lunch or an early quiet drink. Consistent value for money. Good range of food and choice of drinks. Toilets up a steep staircase so not suitable if stairs are a problem.

I've eaten here 3 times and all three times the food was very nice. The fajitas were gorgeous and I will return soon. Only one point, I had a rose wine with lemonade and the lemonade was flat so I took it to the bar and asked for some more lemonade in the top, the barman took a tesco value... More

A few of our college class got together and had a great meal there. Lovely atmosphere and good selection of drinks. Good place for a pre drink or late afternoon drinks after work with friends, partners, business and even solo.
