          Overall the experience was great!! Would definitely be back - atmosphere, food, cocktails, music was amazing also. The only strange thing is that my friend asked to join us (2+1) but she was told she has to book online a separate table which wasn’t available. She offered that we call to amend our booking to include the third person, which has been rejected also. So strange, why not to add a chair? There were two more couples having a table for 4 at the same time, why not to swap… in the next hour the area was half empty. I think they just didn’t want to apply extra efforts… But the place is great anyways, highly recommended

          This was a perfect outdoor winter dinner, especially with how thry organized their seating. Even though it is situated next to a major road, the cars can barely be heard. The food and waitstaff were excellent as well.

          The only disappointment of the night was that we ordered oysters and they came with nothing( I know the menu said ‘naked’. What I mean is, there was no slice of lemon with them on the side, and I only noticed after eating them that Tabasco sauce was being dropped down to other tables that ordered them. Another piece of feedback (and I know this might not of been possible with Covid restrictions) some live entertainment might of brought a bit more atmosphere to the event.

          Hi Claire, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Sorry to hear that you weren't satisfied with your dining experience. In regards to the live entertainment, you are absolutely right, with current restrictions that isn't yet possible but it is something for us to keep in mind as restrictions continue to ease. We do hope that the rest of your experience with us was enjoyable though. Thank you from everyone at Roe & Co Distillery Lee

          It was the first time we had been there & they had Salty Buoy as a guest food truck. The outdoor seating was amazing. The cocktails were out of this world & impressively displayed. It was an enjoyable experience, they had space for larger groups (6 COVID regulations) in containers and. It kept the noise levels low & was able to have a comfortable conversation with the hubby. It was a sunny day and the cocktails were very cool thanks to their amazing ice cubes and slushy drinks. We were able to stay cool & what other amazing things can we say about Salty Buoy’s Lobster 🦞 Rolls - outstanding & delicious. (That’s coming from a few American Expats too). We’ll be back again.

          Authentic Thai food experience, the whole portion is a bit too big, but food quality is very good.

          Excellent service. Garden seating is really well done and has a great ambiance. Food by nightmarket was delicious. Tasty cocktails. Would definitely go back!

          Myself and my friend had a fantastic time at the Roe & Co collab with Nightmarket. Beautiful outdoor setting at the distillery with wonderful food & drinks and the service was second to none. We can’t wait to return.

          Hi Louise What a lovely review of our collaboration with Nightmarket. Delighted that you enjoyed our outdoor dining area, it’s a beautiful setting alright!

          Excellent food and cocktail pairings. The roe and co cocktail waitress was particularly friendly, knowledge and helpful. We already booked to come back!

          A wonderful evening with delicious food and superb cocktails. Must also complement the staff both in Roe & Co and in OGB where we had a pint of the ‘black stuff’ for fantastic and friendly service. Well done. We will return!

          Bahay was such a unique and wonderful experience! The dishes were full of flavour and a genuinely new experience of really tasty Filipino food. The attention to detail from all the staff explaining the dishes was really valuable and we felt like we learned a lot :) Roe & Co have created a fantastic outdoor space and we felt really comfortable and service was top notch. Thanks for a lovely afternoon

          Roe & Co DistilleryResponded on 24 July 2021

          Thanks Maria, for your positive feedback on our outdoor space and recent partnership with Bahay. I agree the dishes are so delicious and packed full of amazing flavours. We hope you get to pop in again soon to sample some more local food paired with our Roe & Co Whiskey Cocktails. Thank you from everyone at Roe & Co Distillery Deirdre
