As a frequent visitor to blue myself and husband and son love it. Can't beat the chicken wings. I love the prawns and my son loves the mash and gravy and the chicken goujons for kids are proper chicken chunks. Service is second to none. Very fast and atentive every time.

We ordered a bottle of wine and it was handed to us with the glasses.Would have been nice if they had poured some into our glass to start and checked to see if we were happy with it!Not the cheapest place to eat would expect a little more service.

All time favourite restaurant. Food is ALWAYS amazing without a doubt. My partner and I love to go to the Blue bar for a treat every now and then or to celebrate special occasions. It was his birthday when we visited on the 8th of October and I requested a booth for some privacy which was lovely. Great staff, great food and just a great place.

Last Sunday we had dinner for 12 at Blue tomcwlebrate an 8th birthday.
We split a few portions of chicken wings to start.
Mains were a mix of burgers and fresh fish. The highlight was my sons reaction to the special birthday candle(firework). Great staff.

-Excellent food, only negative was we had to wait half an hour between courses and the kids were starving. It was however a busy Sunday so to be expected.

It was my boyfriends birthday and when we got our dessert they sang him happy birthday. It was a night i'll never forget.
Thank you so much
The service was amazing and the staff were so kind.
We are a young couple (16,17) and they treated us so professional and like we were adults and most places would be hesitate about us being so young in a restaurant.
Thanks again!

The food was nice but I felt 2 of the main course were small for what you got, we ordered the chicken supreme and there wasn’t much of anything on the plate, my child got a bigger portion of food! It was tasty but I would suggest ordering sides, my partner had the chicken wings they were fab, I would say it’s a good place for wings and burgers

Booked a table for 8:45 and wasn't seated until 9:15 whilst left standing in reception area, walk ins were served before us and eating before we were even seated, waiter Jamie was lovely and extremely friendly and quick, but reception staff were very inefficient, menu is very narrow minded and only suits a select crowd, wings were cold and tasted like vinegar, no wipes or hot water to clean your hands either, overall atmosphere was lovely but won't be back.

We discovered Blue Bar in January and have been here many times since, bringing friends and relatives who have been visiting from overseas. Always loved it here. Unfortunately, this time we were left disappointed with the food, we ordered medium rare fillet steaks mine was over done and my partners very Underdone! The peppercorn sauce was raw tasting and left a bad taste for several hours. My pavlova was underdone and there was some sort of toffee sauce squirted on all the plates of dessert that we ordered! If the chef has changed can he please practice more! I love this place please bring back the old chef.

We visited with family from the UK and they always love to visit this fab little spot when they're visiting. I booked online and had requested a window-front seat to have a view of the sunset and harbour. Upon arrival, we were asked to have a seat at the bar as they were just setting up for us. Once seated, everything was just perfect. A beautiful meal, attentive staff and a gorgeous atmosphere. As always we'll be back! Thank you for a lovely night.

I really love the blue bar and travel out 50 minutes for a meal in the blue bar, which I have been many times. Wednesday however was different! Celebrating a sale agreed on a house we chose a meal at blue. But we booked a table for 9.15 and arrived early. While five minutes into our mains we were asked would we be getting dessert because it was a necessity to know. (At that stage we hadn't thought about it) As we were chatting half way through the main we were asked were we finished to clear the table with so much left on our plates!
We felt we were holding staff up and felt uncomfortable with the service so we ate quite quick and left! Highly disappointed.

I have been in Bluebar number of time.... as always service was great, staff are very pleasent. We order chicken wings for starter. That was outstanding however main course and desert were not the best. I would visit again, I might just stick with chicken wings for my meal.

Thanks to all the lovely staff for their fab service.

We booked a table for bluebar for Saturday night at 9.15 , we arrived at 9.10 and didn't get seated until 9.35. ( which was dissapointing), we witnessed an angry customer giving out due to a mistake on her booking which kind of affected the mood of the evening ,I ordered a salad and the dressing wasn't on the salad it came out dry (so I asked for this) but it wasn't great tasting in general due to it not being dressed properly - we got over charged also on a drink that we didn't have , we have been a few times to your restaurant but Saturday was very disappointing , my partner said he would not be keen on going back. 👎🏾
