I came here for my birthday and we had such a lovely time. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food and drinks were so tasty and the tunes they were playing were so good! I got the vegan beyond meat burger and the zombie cocktails which were so nice! Highly recommend coming here

Food was amazing and so good for the price. Drinks made in house were also very tasty and good value for price. That being said service was not good. The servers were not communicating with each other and we were asked each question multiple times. We were then offered desserts on the house by one server and moved table by another server. No dessert ever arrived after we put in our order with the first server. Once moved downstairs our staff changed completely. It took 15-20 mins for three of our four people to get noticed and put in the newest drinks order. It also took longer than 15 mins to grab the attention of again a new server due to lack of attention from our downstairs server to get our bill.
Unfortunately it really hurt the vibe of the evening to have this chaos however food was again incredible hopefully the staff can come together and live up to the food.

Staff are lovely, very polite and attentive. Menu looks stunning, but the food is not made well at all. Chicken tenders were very oily and the Mac and cheese was totally flavorless. Cocktails are nice! But a bit overpriced.

Booked the table for 7-9. However, at 8.40, was handed the bill and told our time is up, we can wait until we finished our smokes and then head, WITHOUT AN OPTION FOR LAST ORDERS. At 8.50 we were ushered downstairs to finish our drinks (NOTE NONE OF US ARE FULLY VACCINATED AND THERFOR SHOULDNT BE DINING INDOORS), despite having a booking till 9pm.
Staff were very hard to access for orders during our time there. Very disappointed as we are regulars, however won't be returning if we don't even have access to the full time we booked or easy access to ordering drinks.

(5people)We were all Extremely ill after the food, booking was at 7 we were notified the table was prebooked for 9, we understand the place was a bit busy but we were waiting 15/20 mins any time we ordered a drink, we ordered our food at 7:40 and we didn’t get the food until 8:14 and we were then handed our bill while we were still eating at 8:35. No option to get dessert or even another drink.
The staff were really really nice and seemed to be run off their feet maybe due to lack of staff but the service was slow, food was not nice at all and cocktails weren’t the best.
I was really disappointed because I went here for my birthday last month and had a great time hence why I booked it again for myself and my 4 friends. I asked for our food to be boxed as we had a lot of food left and no time to finish it and the staff member emptied our food into the boxes at the table, no bringing it back to the kitchen, poured any eaten chicken wings (bones) into the boxes as well. I would of been happy if they left the boxes there and we do it ourselves. It was just not professional. I am a chef myself and I wouldn’t be the type to leave bad comments as I know how stressful it can be but I would just not be happy if my food went out the way it did and the food wasn’t boxed properly.

Servers were fantastic and so lovely, food was very disappointing considering we have always eaten at The Wiley Fox previously and it would be a go to for my friends and myself. The chicken tenders were very spicy and the menu never stated that they were in a spicy breadcrumb or coating, two of my friends were extremely upset and it ruined the food for them. Chips/fries also had a spiced coating too which wasn't in the description.
We also never knew that we had to leave the table by 9pm which was also a big disappointment as the booking never specified that we needed to leave the table after a certain period of time.
Absolutely love The Wiley guys it's always been such a great spot, but some of my friends are so disappointed and surprised at the food that they're very reluctant to return in future. I would return myself, but wouldn't order food, just drinks. Can't express how shocked we were at much the food has declined.

They took us 45 mins earlier than we had booked, which was very good of them. The portions of chips and sweet potato fries were very small and the chicken strips were slightly burnt, although they were made with good quality chicken. The background music was too loud for our liking, especially when the staff have to wear face masks - which makes it hard to hear them. It is a bar though, so music maybe has to be loud.

Very disappointed with the whole thing. Firstly it took them 20 min to get us to our table, they gave us a small tall table for 3, when there were loads of bigger tables around with just 2 people. We were sitting next to a ventilation pipe from the kitchen, so smoke and smells were in our faces through the whole night. They took over 15 min to bring our drinks, and over an hour to bring the food. The menu online is completely different to what they had there. When they brought the food they told us to order the last round of drinks cause they had to close our tab so we could leave the table free for the next people. Very rude considering we had just received the food over an hour late. Half the staff didn’t bother wearing masks (one of them looked like the manager). Overall very terrible experience, I was hoping for better service
