“Surprised!”
Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

I was at the bistro for a function and was surprised at how good it was. The bar staff were excellent, dj pitched the music wrong and was way to loud but overall it was very good value.

“Couldn't ask for more - FABULOUS”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

I hired The Orchid Suite for a Birthday party. The room was just perfect. We had a 4 course sit down meal which every single person thoroughly enjoyed and were amazed at the standard for £20 per head. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and the disco was amazing. We all had a fabulous night. Thank you Bar & Bistro for making it a very special night.

“Fantastic meal and evening”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Went here for my husbands 46th birthday meal just the two of us , we went with no reservation but only waited about 20 minutes for a table even though it was busy. The staff were very friendly and the service was excellant. The food was even better than we could of thought we can not wait to return to try the menu again. The drinks menu was very reasonably priced and the food was worth every penny.

“Just not right”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

The title of my review is dead on,Went there for my stepsons 18th birthday on a sunday afternoon with about with nine family members.I have always known this place is so overated but thought i would give it another go.Lets go arrived gave birthday cake to reception and recieved set menus and specials menu well the specials menu was only special because they only had one main coarse special left and three starters why give them out felt sorry for the girl. I know it was sunday but as a supplier to some of best places to eat in Scotland i know not buying enough specials from your supplier is not good work by the chef or buyer.The food was average at best,orders sent out wrong one person on the bar ages to get served when arrived,Waitress forgetting drinks at table then spilling them on table.Oh and forgetting to bring birthday cake over.I know Doncaster is one of worst places to go out for good food but if this one of the best on offer you can keep it.

“A great place for a function”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

After dining here recently, we booked our wedding reception here, Karl and team could not have been helpful. They were able accommodate to our guest requirements with a flexible menu, even providing a varied kids menu.
On the big day everything ran smoothly, the quality of the food was outstanding, as was the service.
We arrived early, this did not phase them, they were able to bring forward the meal time to prevent guests getting hungry.
All our guests commented on the food and were very complimentary.
I would highly recommend them for a function, we believe we got value for money, I would go as far to say they are probably the best restaurant in Doncaster's town centre.
