The Washington Ratings and Reviews
Totally private bar, good value, hidden entrance added something fun
Things weren't set up at agreed time. Despite settling the bill by bacs in advance and emailing to request a receipt - no receipt was provided and then our staff were forced to stay and pay the bill for a second time on the night!
The people were absolutely lovely and catered to all of our needs. I would do I party there again!
The pub is amazing
The waitress was a star
The food was really good
Discount has been made automatically for kitchen delay service with plenty apologies from the staff
I would recommend but not for party
Even if we did made a food preorder. Kitchen could not cope with the night.
Wait 30 min for nibbles with drinks to arrive
Starters delay was acceptable
Mains delay not acceptable. We were 2 out of 11 to not have food until the others finished theirs
Great venue for a 20s themed party, barely needed any additional decoration as it looked great already. Price very good (£500 minimum spend reached easily) for what you got, and the bookcase entrance unique!
Not enough staff for the night to man the bar, bring food and manage things on the night (only one staff member most of the night). Food was late being served and took approx 1.5 hours to all be on the table, which meant it was still being served when cake came out, people were confused about how much to eat (buffet shared) and the entertainer I had hired could not start performing until very late (luckily was ok in my case but I could have easily been charged for this extra time). Unfortunately we also had feedback from guests that staff were rude towards them-something I didn't see myself but I do feel I need to mention as it was several people! Despite this, I would definitely book again, and just perhaps expect a bit more pre-planning around food and staff beforehand.
My friend really enjoyed her hen do here, as did all her friends and family. We had such a fantastic time. Everybody loved the space, which truth be told you won't get a real feel of from the photos, you have to experience it for yourself but it's a warm, cosy, comfortable and simply amazing space and perfect for our needs. The venue staff were fantastic and accommodating through out. The sharing boards were generous and scrumdiddlyumptious. All in all simply perfect. Would definitely recommend.
I wish we could have stayed there the whole evening *wink*
A really nice space which all my guests enjoyed. Really nicely decorated and furnished.
The bar woman didn't really know what was going on. She had no idea about the minimum spend, and wasn't very helpful at finding solution to problem/issues that arose.
