We had booked to celebrate a special occasion. We were given a choice of tables, which was great. However, It took a while for anyone to get us a drink (and they were not that busy), and to take our order. Our first gin order was not supported by a knowlegdable waiter at all and did not offer any recommendation for a tonic/mixer, unlike last time we were at Juniper. We are not gin people, so help with this kind of thing is the reason we came back, along with the pizza. Our starters arrived promptly as did our pizza. The staff were excellent in checking on my request for a gluten free base and took pains to make sure I realised it wasn’t totally gluten free. I am not gluten intolerant, but cannot eat bread in the evening without feeling ill the next day. However, I realised gluten intolerant people have it hard. The base tasted and had the texture of cardboard. I think I will risk stomach pains and have the real thing next time! For our second and third gin, we had the help of a brilliant waitress who really knew her gins. With her help and knowledge we found a fab pineapple gin and mixer. The staff should be aware that all their conversations behind the bar are fully audible to the customers and don’t always make for a relaxing atmosphere. Also the men’s toilets could do with a proper clean. All in all, an average experience which was a little disappointing.
