We visited Mjolner for a birthday and loved the viking atmosphere. The pre-dinner digestive honey mead drink was lovely and the cocktails were delicious. We loved drinking beer from horns and choosing a big viking knife to eat our meal with. The food was beautifully prepared and tasty. Unfortunately, the service was extremely slow, we waited approx 40 minutes between our starter and main and the waiter who was looking after our table seemed to completely ignore us and the surrounding tables who were all keen to order drinks. The table next to us caught his attention and made a complaint about their food not arriving and we chipped in that ours was also missing in action. Due to the extremely slow service we then had to move to the bar for desserts which wasn't ideal.

Pluses: The menu was well explained by our server, and the welcome shot (with options catering for both drinkers and drivers) was a nice touch. The food was delicious and well proportioned. We all enjoyed our food. The server’s choice of red wine for me was delicious! Being able to choose a main meal knife from the leather belt was cool.

Opportunities: Our chairs weren’t especially comfortable. I don’t mind a bit of ambient lighting, but I’d also like to be able to see what’s on my plate. My particular seat was, depending on my body position, either full spotlight or dark shadows. I tried the beer horn, which was a nice novelty option but a bit smelly.

Celebrated our mates 21st Birthday as a group of 3. The food was exceptional, as well as the service. Upon entry the vibe of the restaurant was insanely welcoming as well as the staff. Drinks and food were fantastic and we cant stop raving about everything. Thanks again to our two wonderful waitresses as well as the chefs!

Everything was awesome and to get a card for our anniversary was very sweet thank you

Although I feel the music playing through out the restaurant took you out of the experience of the restaurant. I don’t ever imagine Thor would be listening to hip hop and rap.
I don’t expect you to play Amon Amarth (look into them) they would have been much more fitting to the theme

The food and service were excellent. Bone marrow with a shot of whiskey to start, beef rib which fell off the bone and pork cooked and paired perfectly. The potatoes with horseradish were divine as were the green beans. Serving sizes were so generous we unfortunately couldn't try any deserts. Servers were exceptionally gracious, went above and beyond to enhance the experience.

Unfortunately, even booked far in advance we were seated with other diners who were obnoxious beyond belief. While not a reflection of Mjølner, just be advised to request no shared tables if this is a concern for you.

Overall a mixed experience. Excellent location greeting on arrival, complimentary drink which was very nice. Staff in general where good, but organisation let them down. Wrong orders turning up to wrong tables, in the end waiting around an hour for our starter. The food though was excellent. I would recommend to friends as I’d like to think that for a restaurant as expensive and with a reputation like it has, the mixed experience was just a one off.

Great service as soon as we walked in and continued throughout the night. The atmosphere was great. The venison we had just fell off the bone and was amazing and the pork belly was fantastic. Horns of mead were enjoyed and finished off with whiskey from Mjolnir. An unexpectef birthday card signed by the staff was a lovely surprise. Am coming back.

We Dined on Monday Night of the october long weekend, and despite it being quite busy, they still delivered a stunning evening. Elizabeth our waitress was very professional and friendly, and made sure all tables were attended to quickly & checked in with us through out the evening. The food was well seasoned and delicious, and the 900g ribeye cooked perfectly to medium rare. The bar offered extra flare while serving & the restaurant itself had a very niche vibe. The shot glass & hand signed card for my partners birthday was a lovely surprise to end the evening too. Highly reccomended & will definately be back!

Food was delicious, but unfortunately we were disappointed with the table service, and constantly had to ask for the same things to different waiters/waitresses several times to get it. It was also incredibly hard to get the attention of waiters and had to get up a few times to find one. Overall a good experience though!

Had the duck... it was...by no means easy to consume.
Additionally... the phone reception was really bad recommend you install wifi for guest to locate friends waiting for them in the premise.

Sorry, i really wanted to like this place. And based off of the reviews I would have thought it would be awesome or at least fun but sadly it was neither. It was like A hipster version of Medieval Times. Hip hop music playing over the Nordic themed restaurant that in aspects tried to hard in one respect and not hard enough in another. And as for the food...unimpressed. Skip it.

Highly recommend this place! My husband is a fan of the TV show, Vikings, so booking his birthday dinner at Mjolner was a no-brainer. We mostly came for the ambiance but was blown away with the food and exceptional service. Each dish was excellent and portions were huge. Our server, Amy, took good care of us throughout the night and even surprised my husband with a gift and a card at the end of the night! It was a small gesture that made a huge difference. Will definitely be coming back!

Amazing! We had a small birthday dinner on Saturday night, service was excellent, good vibe, the food was lovely (we were nervous reading the menu but everything was delicious), big serves, interesting drinks menu, brought a small gift over for my son to take home with a card signed by all staff. Couldn’t fault it - great place for just drinks, drinks & small meals at the bar or full dinner service. Will definitely go again and recommend!

The Viking theme is great, cocktails are innovative and the food was pretty good. We were celebrating a special occasion and to be honest due to an unpleasant experience with the service of our server it did ruin the mood a bit. Our server tried to carry too many drinks and someone else’s dessert in one go, spilt most of the glass of beer on our table (and me) and the floor - half cleaned it up then went away. She didn’t really take ownership and another server had to end up fixing the mess (including bringing fresh napkins, dishes, cutlery, wiping the floor). Basically the person who caused the mess walked away and acted like it didn’t happen, let others clean the mess only when we asked. She was also quite slow early on to take orders etc. The other staff were lovely but this incident was poorly handled by one.

As we entered the building we were greeted by the sound of rap music which really didn't help with the ambiance of the place but the decor is beautifully arranged and we were greeted by a lovely bartender who gave us a nice walkthrough of the drinks menu
We were then taken to our table and seated to a beautiful table set up
Unfortunately we felt that the explanation of the food menu was a little rushed but we got the idea and the menu had a brilliant lay out with some very interesting choices
The food was outstanding and the waitstuff were attentive but on that note we did have empty water glasses for the majority of the night
Overall a brilliant venue and will definitely return in the future and would recommend to friends

Unfortunately the loud rnb hip hop music really changed the mood of the whole place. It was also very awkward being sat at a table with another couple who seemed to be on a first date... such a shame because the styling of the restaurant was very well done and the food tasted great!

Great place for dinner. They tend to only really cater for groups. I booked a table for 2 for my sister and I and had to share a table for 4 with a couple who were on a date night. It was a bit awkward. We asked if we could be moved, the hostess tried to accommodate but gave us a time restriction if we chose that option....wasn't ideal.

From the moment you walk in the door (when you find it) you are transported to an exciting place where great customer service meets amazing food.
You will endeavour on a journey- the staff are the tour guide and your senses will be tantalised.
The entire experience was just that- an experience and is definitely one we are keen to discover again.
You will not regret the choice to dine here :-)
