    We visited the Black Door as a party of 6 to celebrate my daughters 18th birthday. From walking in the door the service was excellent , comfortable surroundings and great atmosphere and value for money. Mark was great explaining each cocktail . We all had a great evening and will be retuning soon.

    Went to The Black Door with my husband tonight for some quality time together. The drinks were amazing and so were the staff - they were very attentive and friendly. We also had one of the food platters to share - lovely fresh food. There was live music on which was fantastic- a great local singer. A comfy, chilled atmosphere made it a fabulous night. Such an amazing bar to visit - both day and night.

    It was our first visit and we were very impressed. A really classy place that sets itself apart from the other drinking establishments in the area. The signature cocktails we had were excellent; mixology is an art as well as a science and they've nailed both here! The food we had was surprisingly filling. It's relatively new having opened during the pandemic and we really wish it the best of luck, it deserves to succeed!

    A little disappointed at having to move tables after being shown to a table of four where we sat for 90 mins of our 120 min slot To ta le next to the toilet door Food nor as fresh as usual However cocktails as good as ever but service not as spot an as when pong lad h in big jacket normally on , we missed her Still the best cocktails and best value in town and will be back very soon

    The Black DoorResponded on 16 August 2021

    Thanks for your review Cathy, Frustrating about having to move tables. We accidentally sat you at the wrong table for your time. There was another table of 8 that had both of those tables booked at 8. I've made a note on our system to seat you away from the entrance to the toilets for future bookings. Food wise I can only apologise, we buy fresh every day for service so I'm unsure why your food wasn't to our usual standard. Look forward to your next visit!

    We had a good night in the bar the drinks we're good but I'm afraid I must give the service a thumb down as it was extremely slow service and had to ask where our drinks wee a few times

    The Black DoorResponded on 2 August 2021

    Hi Christopher, thanks for your review. I'm not sure if you was made aware but we notified guests that there might be a delay for drinks as we had 3 members of staff missing and we are already short staffed. The entire sector is currently struggling and we are no different. You can probably see from our reviews that our service is usually exemplary, this is very much a situation which was beyond our control on this evening. We hope you visit again and give us another chance.
