My boyfriend booked us a table here for my birthday. Whilst the service was good and staff were attentive, the food let them down. Whilst, the tables looked like they had seen better days and the food was tasteless and every course was bland.

Popped in for a drink whilst staying in the area. Having visited all the other Crazy bear establishment's. And enjoyed the concept. We were amazed at the rude reception we received. Could we come in for a drink please..'No we are too busy'. An apology would of been a courtesy. Not the usual front of house response considered acceptable.

Booked for a birthday celebration, comfortable seating, fantastic choice of food and cocktails. Our waiter was very attentive, and made us feel very welcome. It is definitely one of the best meals I have had, as a fussy eater, there was plenty of choice to suit every fussy eater! My friends had the 12 plate set menu, which looked totally... More

Arrived on time for my reservation and had to wait roughly 20 minutes for my table to be ready, but straight away a lovely American waitress made us feel welcome & made mine & my girlfriends first drinks on the house which was more than appreciated. When taken to our table, ordered the 12 plate share menu & within 5-10... More

This is probably a place for a 'special occasion'. It's certainly decked out nicely, perhaps a little OTT and pretentious but hey if you're into that kind of thing it's all good. The food itself I think is very average but I think you'd come here more for the overall experience. But the food is what I'm most interested in... More
