“Champagne and meal excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

My friend and I had a superb meal, two courses, with Champagne. Food was excellent with good sized portions. This was early afternoon so didn't have to eat for the rest of the day. we had voucher from Groupon so it was vvery good value. Will definitely go again.

“short lived visit!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

We had considered visiting for a pre evening meal drink as the bar looked quite attractive. We passed by on our walk along the canal side and decided to return later on. When we had passed by there had been a variety of clientele including young children and teens. We returned at about 7pm, myself, my friend and our teenage daughters. We found a table and a couple of staff were visible, we found a table which needed cleaning, and sat down and we decided that we would all order soft drinks. A member of staff approached and abruptly asked for ID, we responded with a polite oh we only wanted soft drinks. The member of staff curtly replied, you need ID, its only for over 18's after 4PM. We got up to leave as we had not realised this, there did not seem to be any clear indication of this and although it is obviously called Bar Epernay, it did not seem to have been listed as an adult themed bar at certain times. We appreciate that we may have been mistaken as we had never visited this establishment before but a polite explanation would have been preferable to the curt and rather superior response we received!! Had a polite explanation been given we may have returned at a more suitable time the following day as it seemed to be a lovely venue.

“Lazy lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Met here for lunch on Saturday with our in-laws to be, our daughter and her fiancé to pre-celebrate the coming wedding the following week. The weather was good so we started on the terrace for drinks before moving inside for the meal. Staff were very attentive, food was good and all in all we had a lovely time. The set lunch menu is good value, although choices are a bit limited. However, overall a great setting and an enjoyable afternoon had by all.

“Very enjoyable afternoon!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Visited here several times before with friends and never thought to review it until now.

We joined some friends here recently for a few drinks on a Saturday afternoon. As usual, it was a very enjoyable afternoon in smart, swanky surroundings. It's in quite a nice spot behind the mailbox and overlooking the canal network. Perfect for a sunny afternoon.

The drinks aren't the cheapest in the world but there's a good variety of beers (Moretti on draught!!), wines and cocktails - the cocktails are made to a pretty high standard.

It was quite busy as it generally is. The service is usually pretty good even when it's four deep at the bar but on this occasion we managed to bag a table outside and we were given superb service by our waitress. I can't remember her name (young Irish girl) but she was excellent. Really friendly and attentive - thank you!

Will certainly return!

“Great get together”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Booked the pseudo private dining area at the rear of Bar Epernay for our anniversary surprise party for 21 people. They did us proud not only with the efficient booking, planning and pre-arrival of guests but also their friendly and attentive service; all from a great food and drinks menu. The atmosphere was something special with live piano playing and the location in the Mailbox overlooking the canal just accentuates the experience.
