    Our friends meal came quick and, 1 meal was incorrect and had to wait longer (waitress didn’t write the orders) 2 of us waited 45 minutes for our meal because there was an error in the print, someone forgot to order & then they were forgotten about despite following up! We had to take them away in the end in which one meal was thrown away as it couldn’t be eaten. Staff were nice, but no communication to the customer nor to each other. Food was lovely though and all just human error

    I usually never go for a sweet breakfast but was in the mood for it and tried their nutella french toast. I ate more than half of it as it wasnt too sweet which is what i like and my husband had a breaky toastada which he loved. Coffee was great as well. We were on the high bar stool which wasnt that great on the back but we still had a good time. I had booked a table in advance and was seated as soon as I got there. Coffee came first and there was no wait time for that, shortly followed by the food.

    Friends get together , we booked a table for 6 inside - the table was near the loo and in the main thoroughfare ,worst table in the house . I suppose no one wants to sit in this spot …I’m sure table placement is a hot topic ! Staff were lovely and professional and the food was great… no desserts on the menu .

    Loved trivia! The renovations, and garden are bright and cozy. The menu had great vegan options, however, some weren’t available. We decided to order the curry with a vegan option, then we’re told it isn’t strictly vegan and had shrimp paste in the sauce (we appreciate being told). The crispy eggplant and corn ribs were tasty.

    We got seated right at the door to the outside area, everytime the door opened a freezing breeze came in. We were over charged for beers that got missed and then re ordered. The refit isnt great, the old layout was much better. Apart from the food being good, which it would want to be for a prices, theres not much going for this place.

    Good food, wait staff more interested in talking to each other than attending to customers. 20 min. to get a beer unreasonable in my book. Very noisy = kills conversation. Otherwise good. I will certainly go back.

    The staff are so beautiful at the pocket. There weren't any mocktails on the menu and I was wanting one Bing pregnant, they sussed out what I liked with cocktails and went from there, even offering to remake if I didn't like it. Very helpful with ordering and nothing is ever too much trouble. Fun vibe, with local bands playing.

    Amazing food. Large portions for what you pay and super tasty. They had a band/singer playing on the night and we were sitting right underneath a loudspeaker so it was really loud (could hardly hear people at our table and had to shout). Nothing bad though and will definitely be going back. Highly recommended.

    Great vibe, but unfortunately curry had absolutely no flavour.

    The Pocket Espresso BarResponded on 1 April 2022Hey Thom, Thanks for letting us know your feedback. Great news, the curry has been revised and I think you'll be very happy with the update. It's got way more punch and when you add in that succulent melt in your mouth lamb, it's a great dish. We hope you can come back sometime and test it!

    Sorry but found the lunch menu super disappointing. I am pescatarian and found the menu very limited. Cauliflower bao were bland and tiny and my husbands Penang chicken was just half a chicken with no rice or greens. Difficult to share when I do not eat meat. Sorry to see the lovely rustic retro booths go. Hope that the coconut lime margarita are still there as will try to come back for those but won’t eat given the current limited menu.
