Really good selection of cocktails and the staff were very accommodating as we were early for our booking but they still made space for us. The service was a bit slow and took ages to order drinks but they were really busy and we weren't in any rush. We sat outside which wasn't the most scenic but was a nice night for it and felt the staff forgot about the outside people a bit. Overall, really nice time!

The service was good until we were told to leave abruptly
The manager was rude and told my partner that he was aggressive we are in our 60 s to be insulted by this man was upsetting
We would come to Tiger Hornsby regular before covid but will not be returning because of this guy’s attitude

Ignore the "dress code" unless you're there on a Friday or Saturday evening. I attended Monday evening and there were people in shorts. Definitely not "smart casual"

We went when it was 241 on cocktails so this made it fun trying out as many cocktails in our available booked time slot. However only one waitress which meant service was really slow.
Beautiful place they have decorated it lovely. Would go back.

Thanks for visiting us and we are so pleased you enjoyed the 241 cocktail offer that we have Monday to Wednesday! We have more staff on shift now, as our early week nights are much busier than they used to be! So the next time you visit we hope you'll be better looked after. See you again soon :)

Very nicely decorated place. Service was very poor unfortunately, waited absolutely ages for drinks to arrive after ordering and on 3 separate occasions had to ask where our drinks were after waiting 15 minutes each time

We are so sorry that you had a disappointing visit to Tiger Hornsby on the bank holiday weekend. We were overwhelmed by the amount of customers who wanted to visit us, so we did struggle to keep drinks orders moving quickly whilst also maintaining covid safety standards. We are still in the process of adapting to Covid19 restrictions whilst maintaining our high standards, however in Iight of this we are recruiting more staff so that we can improve our service times on the really busy days.

The sharing platters used to be lovely. Good value for money and tasty - what we were served was very poor. A few slices of meat and two breadsticks with a small bowl of olives. Cocktails were lovely and staff were apologetic - we will come back if the food improves

Hi Lisa! So sorry that you were disappointed with our Charcuterie Board on your recent visit. We are using the same meat selection that we used to, but yes we have changed the bread selection to black olive sourdough sticks. We have taken this on board and are adding the warm sliced sourdough with dipping oil back on to the board from now on :) Hope to have you back again soon x

Great to be back! Staff doing grand job just pity some customers did not wear masks like expected when walking around / going to toilet (staff did stop a lady on one occasion ) and customers standing talking to people seated at one table 😳

Thanks for coming back! Yes, it was a tricky bank holiday when you visited us, with quite a few customers claiming to be exempt (and who seemingly thought this meant they didn't need to stay in their seats either!) We are committed to keeping people safe and we are removing people from the venue if they continue to flout the rules. Hope to see you back again soon! x

The Bar staff were fantastic, great service and produced fantastic cocktails. The night was soured however because when we arrived we were seated at 4 bar stools facing the wall despite the availability of 3 or 4 other empty tables where we could sit facing each other. The lady managing the door refused to move us... we were ready to leave but the bar staff intervened and sorted it out. It didn't make any sense to me at all, the lady on the door made lots of excuses - one of which was because we had booked through the open table website. No one turned up for the other tables...? I just thought we must not be good enough and we were being snubbed. I was so embarrassed because I had told the rest of the group what a nice bar Tiger Hornsby was.

We are so sorry that your visit was spoiled by this confusion over the tables Katherine! Thankfully we did sort it out and we hope your visit was enjoyable from then on. We hope to welcome you back again soon - on one of our best tables :)

Ambience and the decor was lovely. Its very stylish and modern, i loved that.
Though when we went there was hardly cocktail choices, then they ran out of orange liquer and other liquer therefore ending up with very few selected menus. The service from the waiter/waitress was good though I felt having very limited cocktail menu had overshadowed the positives as it dampened our mood halfway through our stay.
I hope this is a one off and I would like to try again.
Thank you x

We were really disappointed as we’d booked it a while ago for inside and they sent a confirmation saying outside. I rang twice and left a voicemail the day before and sent an email, but no one bothered to get back to us. Anyway we had to sit outside and were freezing.

We basically got told to leave after accidentally ordering a takeaway bottle by a server despite him selling it to us and saying it was alright. It was the night before my friends wedding and was the only place we book considering it was a £15 deposite it wasn’t worth it. Never again
