I had my surprise Birthday meal at Blu upstairs in the private dining area. Im only young and would not of thought this place would of been suitable for me my friends and family.
How wrong can you be !!
From the moment i walked in . i had no idea of any surprise, i was escorted upstairs by a most welcoming waitress, upon opening the door to the private dining area i was greeted by all my friends and family.
The table looked amazing, dressed to high standards with cloth candles and balloons.
The food (all 3 courses) was to die for, and everybody sang happy birthday to me including the staff. Amazing birthday - amazing restaurant - ps amazing Bocelli Prosecco - ILL BE BACK ....

A few weeks ago I booked a table for lunch on Good Friday to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This was on the back of an excellent evening meal in the previous month.

We ordered a celebratory glass of fizz each on arrival and then started to look at the menu. However, we were disappointed to discover that the lunchtime menu had recently been changed to brunch choices which is not what we expected or wanted; at this point please read on.

We explained to the waitress that as it was a special occasion we would just have the fizz. Whilst mulling over our situation we had a lightbulb moment and spoke to the waitress again. Yes, they were open that evening and yes they had a table for us so we booked to go back at 7.00 pm. The waitress then said that the drinks of fizz were on the house; a lovely gesture.

When we arrived for the evening meal there was a celebratory balloon at our table and the staff congratulated us when they came to serve us.

The food was outstanding and the service from Ruby in particular was fantastic. We noticed plenty of staff in the kitchen and I imagine that everyone else in the restaurant, which was almost at capacity, had a great experience. We shall certainly patronise this restaurant again and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

We are sure that if you decide to go at lunchtime rather than the evening you will also enjoy brunch; plenty of choice at reasonable prices.

We have been before a long time ago, it was good back then but recent reports from friends and family said it was outstanding and that wasn't an under statement.

So we where met at the door by a very pleasant Young lady and ussered to our table, which was nice and quiet in the corner. The service was professional, relaxed and attentive but also pleasant as the waitresses were lovely.

The Shiraz did the trick complimenting our main meals of Duck and Beef sirloin, which where cooked to perfection with veg and seasonings to die for.....the chips where incredible ! To start we had the scallops on a bed of Mediterranean reduction with gorgeous crispy bites of chorizo.

I am looking forward to going back...often and for breakfast. Well done to all the team for making our night one to remember
