We visited Bank Holiday Monday with our sons. It was very very busy as expected and the staff did their best. It took us a while to get a table but we got a booth eventually. Service was slow but we were looked after. Food ok . We enjoyed our time with our family all together but not our best... More

a great art deco hotel now sadly uglified in pleather. tried to go for a coffee to look out over the bay. was told that the (empty) restaurant and tea room were reserved for (mythical) lunch and afternoon tea guests. was directed to the 'rotunda bar' which is set up like a faux-leather womb. think is possible that the lost...

The Rotunda Bar is a great place to stop for coffee or a light lunch. Good coffee, great sandwiches and platters. The service is a little haphazard, but well intentioned. If you have to wait, the views across the bay will fill your time and compensate. There are small tables around the outside windows ( best ) and larger tables... More

Staff very helpful, value for money on the cocktails. Food menu could do with a little more variety. Apart from that great location, fun experience

This bar is in the Midland Hotel - the whole place reopened in 2008 after a 2 year multimillion pound refurbishment and has absolutely fantastic decor. The staff are very friendly and there is everything on offer that you would expect in a hotel bar including a cask conditioned real ale. A bit pricey but worth it for a treat.... More

Treated myself to lunch in the informal Rotunda bar in the iconic Midland Hotel. Unfortunately, there was nothing iconic about the experience. Cold plastic chairs and tables in the cold windows, or dark enclave with no view. I chose a window table. My burger was hardly a triumph of the chef's art. In fact, I've had its equal in McDonald's... More
