“excellent service & great food”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Recently started to remember this place was here & wonder why I ever stopped eating here. Superb food, great service & very good value. The steak salad is awesome. My lost point is for the not so comfy pew!

“Best cocktails in town!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Me and my friends stop by Circle Bar for our favourite cocktails, every time were out in town!
You don't get cocktails of this standard and class anywhere else really, my favourite has to be a 'Louisiana Jam' made with southern comfort and apricot jam, served in a cute jam jar!! Delicious. And they have a great selection of Mojitos!

Thursdays are great for the Ladies Night menu, £13.95 for 2 huuuge portion courses and a yummy, strong, cocktail!!

A great place for meeting friends, whether it's over a few cocktails or a lovely relaxed dinner.

“Perfect”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Yesterday evening 3 close friends and myself enjoyed an excellent meal in the circle bar! How refreshing to be served by staff who clearly enjoy working there and are also extremely organised and efficient. The atmosphere is laid back and relaxing while also maintaining an excellent service. The food was freshly cooked hot and plentiful and I couldn't fault a single thing. The cocktails were delicious and among the best I have ever tasted. We took advantage of the Thursday ladies night offer(which incidentally is also available for men) and could simply not believe the good value for money. We will most definitely be returning soon. Thankyou to all the staff for a lovely evening!
