    There was a great vibe on the terrace and the food was delicious! We will definitely be coming back. There was only one small incident which stopped me from giving 5 stars, as just before we left, a waitress picked up a jug of water from a table which had just left and came over and poured the dregs into my husband’s cup to top it up which was pretty gross as anything could have been dropped into it. Other than this, the service was fantastic - one British waitress with dark hair was exceptionally good!

    Look, this is the place to eat, the food is great, the drinks are also great. You gotta understand it's got the meats, it's got so much variety of food, you want chicken you got chicken, you want beef, you got beef. If you want great tasting drinks and food just go here, what are you even doing with your life, go here, the sundaes are also painfully good, I saw god when I had that sundae, my god

    Had a few different meals, been here before, with no issue. On this occasion though I found the food to be poor. Sorry, but I’m being honest. I’m an ex chef so I really try to be fair, but it wasn’t good. The nachos for example looked good from the top, but it wasn’t layered and as a result resembled a big dry biscuit. The steak and sweet mash was like a dried up bone, and for the price it simply wasn’t good enough. I know this isn’t what you want to hear and I’m not trying to be difficult, but this is the reality. $300 I spent and this is the 2nd time I’ve spent that amount, and I just expect a bit more. So sorry for this feedback.

    Always a great experience coming to HOB. Foods always amazing and massive for your moneys worth. Cocktails are always flavoursome and such fun. Our waitress was lovely and attentive. This dinner was for a birthday and they brought out a massive fairy floss bucket with sparklers which was amazing. We will always come back :)

    Absolutly loved it and so did my family. We will 100% be coming back, next time though we may ask for a quieter table, it was so load it discouraged conversation, which detracted from its appeal. And I 100% know this makes me sound like a nana, I just think you are losing a market by only appealing to those who are young and don't look up from their phones.
