December 2019

The venue was very nice and our table was beautifully set. The bar tender and waiters were incredibly helpful and great to us. The food was ok. Due to a misunderstanding, the venue gifted us 6 bottles of Prosecco worth approximately £150. I would give service 5 starts, had it not been for the venue manager. I would have given the venue facilities 5 starts Gad it not been because we couldn’t turn the music up do to neighborhood noise restrictions.

There was a massive communication problem between Roxy (the person handling the booking), Leila (the venue manager) and myself. When I first made my booking in September (3 months in advance) I confirmed that we wanted a three menu course, canapés and Prosecco reception. I was asked to give a £200 deposit, which was done to secure the booking. At the time, Roxy sent me the menus from where to choose our courses and a menu from which to choose the canapés. That was all done and it was just a matter of waiting for the date to come. Two weeks before our party, Roxy asked me to give Leila my food choices, at which point I provided Leila with each person’s menu choices. I provided this 6 days in advanced (a day late from when I was requested to send them by. The joker was accommodating in the fact that I sent this late). At this point no one asked me to choose the canapés as I thought these were set, given it was only mentioned to me once there was a choice three months prior and did not recall there was more than one option. Neither Roxy nor Leila mentioned the canapés or asked me for my choices. I was also asked to pay £225 outstanding for the food (I wasn’t given a breakdown), and I didn’t do any math and simply paid the amount I was being requested. When I got to the venue on my booked date and ask for the canapés and Prosecco reception, Leila said that I never gave her my selection and thus they didn’t prepare any canapés. I was very very upset as we collected the money from the attendees based on a canapés and Prosecco reception. What made it even worse was that Leila’s attitudes focused on the fact that I didn’t give them a canapé choice and that I didn’t flag these were not included in the outstanding £225 (for which I was not provided with a breakdown). Furthermore, when I asked about the Prosecco, Laila said they had a wine cellar with more than 100 bottles of Prosecco and they could send it up any time (by this time, two hours after guests’ arrival, it obviously was no longer a Prosecco reception on arrival). I emailed Roxy who was very helpful and said they would get the matter resolved. Ultimately, the Joker gifted us 6 bottles of Prosecco worth aprox £160 for the misunderstanding. Nevertheless, I was greatly disappointed with Leila’s attitude and failure to accept the Joker’s mistake as she simply wanted to shift the blame way from herself by insisting that Roxy didn’t tell her about the canapés and that I did not give her a selection, neither picked up that it wasn’t billed on the outstanding second payment. Roxy’s attitude on the contrary was of apology and saying this was a misscomunication between the three and that the Joker would do its best to make sure we were being looked after. Altogether, I was very upset with Leila’s response and how she handled it, which was the worst start to our Christmas party. To top things up, they music was very low and we weren’t allowed to turn it up due to the neighbors whilst the music in the lower part of the Joker was blasting. I am conscious of neighborhood noise restrictions and thus, find it irresponsible to advertise a venue for Christmas party hire when the it is not possible to turn the music up. We had booked the place to party until 3am and ended up moving our party elsewhere at 11:30 due to this issue. Overall, I would not recommend the Joker for a Christmas party.

About The Joker

The Joker is as much about having a great time in brilliant company with the tastiest food and the most refreshing ale.

The interior includes a commissioned, large wooden sculpture of the comedy and tragedy dramatic masks, a rare oddity in the original 10 feet high clock which featured on the cover of the Oasis album "Be Here Now", and which formed part of the band’s stage show.

The Joker of Penton Street, which trades from midday to 3 am, promises to be a welcoming, interesting and fun loving place whatever the time.
