We went to Bar 44 on Saturday 30th August and enjoyed a delightful light lunch with 8 shared tapas. The service was first class from the moment we arrived - Kerry's name was on the bill. The tapas included baked torta, crab tostados, chickpeas, chorizo Iberico, squid, tortilla, and jambon Iberico. The quality was excellent and authentic and frankly better... More

The food was okay but have had much better for the price .Triple cooked chips excellent but several other dishes came out tepid, I understand that is the nature of some tapas but felt these should have been hotter. Service was absymal, not a single time we were asked how our food was/whether we needed anything, it was incredibly slow... More

Having just picked this restaurant at random we were really impressed with the service and, especially, the dishes ordered.

One of our locals - tend to come for their great range of cocktails at reasonable prices. Never disappoints - except when too busy and no room to stay!

tapas bars usually conjure up a place where you get mains size dishes of mass produced,boring food, the genuine article is meant to be a taster plate, enjoyed as a snack with a drink or a combination as a meal - preferably a sharing meal, so you can sample each others dishes or go halfzeees. (how Do you spell that).... More

I went to Bar 44 twice and twice it was very average experience. On both occasions the place was nearly empty but the service was super slow. I had to get up four times to ask for order to be taken and for extra drinks twice, and also had to get up to get ketchup. The bacon and chorizo sandwich... More

Good variety, good food hygiene rating and interesting food if a bit expensive. Lunch time offer is good value and a nice atmosphere.

My other half wanted me to try this for the second time- I reluctantly agreed. Again the service was average and I find their menu limited. The decor needs attention- paint coming off the windows, tables were sticky and the radiators were covered in thick black dust. It also took about 10minutes to make a cocktail, which in fairness was... More

Attended a private party when odds and ends of food arrived with long periods of nothing in between. The food was poor, limited and for vegetarians the choice was minimal. After dreary processions of bits of food there arrived a large bowl of fat floppy chips which were poorly cooked. I would not be in a hurry to return.
