No phone number or online option to cancel a booking. My friend came down sick and despite trying to contact them on mobile number I got no response and I was actually charged a cancellation fee. My booking was actually for a time outside their listed operating hours as per their website as well.

We were seated at 11:00pm. It took 45 minutes to get a drink served to us. Our waiter ignored us for most of the night and had issues accepting our payments and with our bills and dealt with it very poorly. He swapped with another waiter who was much much nicer to us.

The food and drinks are good, the atmosphere is cool; but we had to actually get up and go to the counter to ask for service. We noticed a few other tables had to do the same thing. We're currently under social distancing laws so there were not many tables either... Staff were nice once we found them but they were not attentive at all.

Great to see the venue taking Covid19 seriously - enforcing strict distancing and admission into the bar. A few small kinks - the kitchen forgot our food order (even though the waiter brought out cutlery early) and we lost track of time so when they came to remind us our booking would be expiring in 30m, and we asked about our food, it was rushed out to us and we literally had to rush it down in 10m before the booking expired. Far from ideal. On that note, the 90min time restriction is limiting - I think 2 hours would be more reasonable. Otherwise, lovely venue and decent value.

COVID impact only allows for 90 min bookings. The process to enter and "safe" environment was exellent. However it took 30 mins to be served so the staff were not attentive which allowed 60 mins to eat and drink to be excited exactly 90 mins.

Food was excellent - grest dumplings and quick food service

The host on the door was incredibly rude and condescending. Seemed like he was on some sort of power trip, bigger built man with a black face mask on. Other than that the service was amazing, cocktails were great (huge selection) and the food was good value.

Really disappointed at the service. Last time I was there was made to feel welcome. This time I had a booing at 6:30pm. First thing they said was you have to go after 90 minutes because of Covid. OK, no problem but their delivery was a little rude and abrupt. They sat me on one of those high tables which I hate. I asked for a proper table and they said they are fully booked out. This was absolute rubbish as the venue was almost empty. There were a few couples who were coming and going but there were a number of tables free at any or time.

Then with 15 minutes to go, they reminded us (in a very abrupt way) that we need to get out at 8pm even though the place was over half empty!

Hi Dean Thanks for your feedback. Due to capacity restrictions placed on venues at present, we are only able to have 40 guests in the venue at any one time - you are correct in saying that the venue is over half empty and that tables looked free. We are doing our best to keep our guests safe and are adhering to social distancing requirements. Because of this we are unable to seat guests at every table in the venue. I apologise that we were unable to offer you another table during your visit.

Hello Meg. Thank you for your interesting review. I recall that you were very upset by a large number of global issues as you arrived at our venue - you voiced them loudly to my staff and I. I won't go into the details here. You caused a rather large scene when you asked your friend to leave, attracting the attention of our other guests. We treated both you and your friend very kindly that evening. I do believe that your review is unfounded. Regards, The Uncle Mings Team
