“Very Poor During the day”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

I wrote a review in December 2012 titled "Nice place at night" where I stated how good the place was as part of a night out. So after visiting Soul Suite for food during the day I am now writing another as our opinions have changed a fair bit.

We visited Soul Suite for Sunday dinner 30/3/13 after seeing posters. When we walked in the place was dark, dull and empty except for a barmaid who seemed to be in a bit of a mood slamming things around, later we heard her speaking to a collegeue that she she annoyed that the night staff had not cleaned anything and it was all left for her. This became clear to us after ordering our food. We went to sit down with our drinks and after trying 5 different tables we gave up trying to find one which was half sturdy, they were all wobbly with the slightest movement causing the table to spill drinks all over, they were old and ready to collapse. After sitting down we noticed the glasses were totally filthy, we took them back to the bar and the barmaid poured the contents into new glasses which to be honest were not much better and 2 out of 3 of us just left them.

Our sunday dinners arrived and wow we were shocked but not in a good way. They were just like the microwave meals you get from supermarkets, we were all certain they were the cheap microwave meals but with some smash and gravy were added to them, meat like rubber and just not very nice, also again the cutlery was dirty although not like the glasses were.

It has put us off going to Soul on a night out now as if all the glasses are as dirty as we found them to be then to be honest it's disgusting.

Out of 36 reviews I have done on trip advisor this is the first below average rating I have given and it could easily be a terrible rather than poor.

“fantastic music and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

The atmosphere is brilliant and you get a wide range of different peole in there. They have a live act later on in the evening and they really get the party going. Drinks are reasonably priced and the staff are very friendly.

“Fab night out.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Visiting as a result of views on TA, and obviously a hankering after this sort of music. Only £1 to get in, music amazing, played some nothern soul stuff I have not heard for years. Friendly atmosphere, out age group. Cardiff - pay attention, we really need something like this here.

Would be first on visit list if I get to visit Blackpool again.

“THIS JOINT IS JUMPING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

We are old soul fans went here for my wife's birthday(60th). It's one of these places that has a happy atmosphere, full of nice people, smiling faces, dance floor full, you know what I mean. Music is King here, there were 2 singers one had a crack at one of Adeles songs and she didn't do a bad job, the other singer had a great voice but he was singing pop and I thought he went off the theme of the place ie SOUL. Now we have found this place we will be back!
