Friendly staff, great venue, food was tasty

We have used Sama Bankside for two 30th birthdays now and both have been great! The team are so friendly, Steve is super helpful and the venue has a really fun vibe. The minimum spend is really good value considering the location and how nice the venue is! The venue do great cocktails which have been a hit on both of our groups and having a chilled music vibe with the ramp up of the dj starting at 10 makes for a perfect party vibe! Would definitely recommend this venue and the team, thank you!

Nothing! We’ve loved both of our events here and I wouldn’t think twice about recommending here or booking again
