Beautiful

This is a beautiful building that is well worth a visit. We had lunch, a fish platter each which consisted of warm shrimps, cockles, smoked salmon and smoked mackerel pate with bread, perhaps not enough bread. I thought prices were reasonable - £11.50 for the meal each, and there was a really good... read more

We visited the Rotunda Bar before our evening meal. From what we had heard and read about the bar, we thought it was going to be a nice place to visit. Unfortunately when we arrived the bar was full of people eating burgers and drinking beer, people were just wandering in from the seafront in shorts and shirts and being... More

This is a rather nice place and we have been before so thought we knew what to expect. We decided to sit indoors as it was a bit draughty outside so chose a seat near the window. First impression: Why were most of the tables set for three people? Then I cottoned on, the spare was for coats and bags!... More

The Midland Hotel is an Art Deco gem and the Rotunda sits at one end as the diamond in the crown. The Art Deco design mixed with the modern decor makes it a unique bar. A good selection of drinks. Lots of alcoves to hide in, and seats to enjoy the view from. Or you can sit outside a look... More

Main reason for going to the Rotunda Bar is that it is an opportunity to see inside the splendid Midland Hotel. Staff friendly and efficient, good food and attractive views, but the main reason for eating in the bar is to see the architecture.

The staff were slow, very rude and pretentious. The prices were extortionate. Many tables of empty glasses. The only think that set them up mark was their location and views.

I love a gin based cocktail and this bar never fails to serve the best to date. Drink a Bramble anywhere else and it will not be as good as the Bramble in the Rotunda. Add in the architecture and design or the view and you have a memory that stays forever. Love it thank you!
