Popped in the Barlounge on our way back to the hotel and found it to be a nice place for a drink. Sat outside by the heaters, however, if you were still cold blankets or hot water bottles were available. The staff were excellent and always at hand to offer blanks, hot water bottles etc and that all important drinks... More

We had been before but revisited with another couple. Always a risk when you have recommended somewhere but we were not disappointed. Staff very attentive whilst giving you time to decide. Thought they'd blown it when the wrong main dish arrived for one of the party but an effusive apology from the waiter who took the order meant that we... More

The "Mullet" is simply stunning. On the recommendation of Oykum, our server, I decided on the Mullet as it was accompanied by Sea food Paella. What a great decision. This dish is now escalated into my top ten Meals EVER!!! (Many thanks to Oykum, for great advice and service.) The Mullet features on the new, ever evolving menu. The old... More

Called in here just by chance. At 5pm the bar was quite busy. Always a good sign. I had fish & chips, my partner had steak pie. Must say both meals were very enjoyable, ample size and lovely and hot. Obviously both were cooked to order. Service was very attentive and overall cost competative.

Lovely cosy bar serving great food and fabulous mulled wine. The staff were very friendly. It was great to come in from the cold and relax with a drink in such a convivial atmosphere.

Popped in for a drink on a Monday afternoon. The layout was good and the drinks menu was large, they did a lot of really nice sounding cocktails.

I think I need to tell people about our wonderful experience at barlounge. As a family of six we went there after my graduation. The lengths that the people in barlounge went to make it special not just for me but all of my family. There were balloons on the table, cookies in a bg labelled 'smart cookie' and a... More

The staff were all friendly and efficient, the food was exquisite and the pricing very reasonable. Would highly recommend the steak pie or kedgeree as both were superb and full of flavour.

We decided to go here before our meal at a local restaurant It was a cold damp evening in November but we were able to stand outside as there were umbrellas and outside heating, twinkly lights so it was lovely Pleasant surroundings on a cold Thursday evening

Bar Lounge has such a great atmosphere!! Friendly, polite and efficient staff who are always looking after you to see if you want a drink top up or even bringing you a chair if stood outside! They make really tasty cocktails which are also reasonably priced for the area. The outside seating area is so nice with cute fairy lights... More
