Fabulous

Everything about The Monday Room is fabulous - the decor, the food and the staff! Called in to enquire about having a function here and the owner and staff could not do enough to help us. Nothing was a problem that they could not overcome. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was yummy... read more

Went for lunch, had a great selection of food Service was attentive, but not over the top. Food came out fast, and as appropriate for tapas style, as it came (ie one by one) rather than all together. Made for a very enjoyable dining experience. Didn't try the wine list - but looked comprehensive. Cool building, with unique look inside... More

The flavours were good but expensive for the size of plates. You need to order a few which adds up the price.

Rustic feel. Doesn't look like a Japanese restaurant but we like it. We ordered soft shell crab, salmon sashimi and green tea yellow fin tuna. We love all of them. Presentation was good.

Some girly friends and I decided on a whim to come here before dinner, lovely cocktails, clean toilets, beautiful interior, extensive drinks list and friendly staff. Just a lovely start to our evening.

Was welcomed and even though they were pretty full ... its quite small inside ... we were shown a table in the outer covered in area. The other tables closer to outside fire were reserved. Waiter was attentive and tapas style food tasty and... More

I really wanted to love this place... The decor is beautiful, they serve good cocktails and the prices are decent. However the service was so faulty it unfortunately ruined our experience. I actually think the service is usually good and we were unlucky but we had to change tables twice and there was general confusion with everything pertaining to our... More

The bartender was professional, it was nice watching our drinks being made in front of us and when you see the care that goes into the cocktails you definitely feel you’re getting your value for money. The outdoor fire warmed the whole bar- great considering winter is coming. The band that played was great, although if you want to have... More
