    We were greeted immediately and were taken to our table. The ambiance and food were wonderful, as well as the service. The only thing I did not like was my cocktail. I hardly touched it and let the waitress know I didn't like it and was still charged for it. Which was fine, but wish they would have let me choose something else. It's fine though, I ordered it, paid for it, and drank as much as I could before giving up. If I go back I will make sure to just order food, because that was phenomenal.

    Good experience. Came for dinner and a couple of drinks. Food was delicious, couldn't fault it. Small plates so easy to share with a group, and good value. Incredibly loud though, hard to hear friends from across a table. Loudness came from one or two rowdy tables but staff weren't trying to quieten them. We had to move table to a quieter part for a drink after dinner.

    The choice of food was varied and the dishes were really tasty. The crabmeat dish in particular was fantastic. The cocktails were also very good. Lots of staff working there so service was very prompt. Nice ambiance and décor. Overall a really good experience and would highly recommend it. I will definitely return.

    Really nice place, the food was gorgeous. As we’re the cocktails!! However, there was a group of ladies downstairs on the ground floor,( we were on the balcony on the second floor), that were VERY loud. As a result of the echoing on the walls, it was very loud! Quite distracting when trying to have a conversation or even order food. Overall I couldn’t recommend enough, the food & drinks were unreal! Staff were SO lovely too.

    We had a lovely time in Drury Buildings. Food was delicious, hot, well presented and delivered quickly to our table. Lovely ambiance with good music and tables well spaced. Staff were extremely polite and helpful especially since we arrived 1 hour early for our sitting. But this was dealt with professionally and courteously and we were promptly guided to a table. Excellent!

    Food was exceptional. Was a little disappointed our food was on our table before our bottle of wine which was ordered. When the wine eventually came it was the wrong one that was ordered but we were charged for the original one ordered which was extremely annoying. It seemed to be one Man on our floor running the whole dinner service himself which couldn’t be easy/ just disappointing as the food was 5 star

    Nice place to have a drink with friendly service, unfortunately food below average. Our Prawns arrived cold, portion of chips was just the bottom of the bag broken bits. Pork belly was the nicest dish. I visited the upstairs restaurant before and really enjoyed it. Disappointed at the last night’s visit.

    Really delicious food in a cool environment. Wasn't too gone on the qr code menus. Yeah you can zoom on your phone but it's not comfortable reading on a small screen and constantly scrolling up and down to remind yourself what's on it is annoying. Definitely an example of trying to be too hip and save a few quid in the process. Just print a few menus! Otherwise impressed with the meal though and will definitely be back.

    The restaurant area was empty with only one section open. We were seated next to a very loud stag party who were just enjoying themselves but we were a table of 2. As a result dinner was an irritating experience. Food was very mediocre but to note staff were very friendly and nice.

    It was odd that they didn’t allow homemade cakes to be brought in but allowed store bought cakes. (We weren’t using their fridge) they made it kinda weird too by asking it a few times. Maybe it was quiet so the waiters and waitresses were checking on us way too many times (at least 8 times in the hour and half we were there) almost felt like they wanted us to buy more drinks.. food was tasty (especially the steak) but portions were way smaller than what I’ve seen on their socials. Nice ambience though!
