Description

Discreetly tucked away in the saucy setting of a Victorian bathhouse, Drink, Shop & Do are all about the good times.

By day: a mild-mannered King’s Cross café and spritz bar serving specialty teas, coffees, healthy lunches and dreamy cakes. By night: a merry den of drinking and dancing, where guests can reconnect with their inner big kid. Keen to get crafty? DSD is the place for you. You’ll find an events schedule packed with everything from Lego Robots to Play With Clay, Lionel Rich Tea to Papier Mache Monsters. They're usually free to take part; just buy a drink and get stuck in.

Slip on your dancing shoes come Friday and Saturday where you'll catch our resident DJs playing old skool favourites, the classics you can't help but dance to and the new releases you're desperately trying to Shazam. It's free to get in before 10pm, too. Party ’til 2am, get some kip then return for brunch; where you'll find DSD serving unlimited bagels, booze and board games all day.

Hen do? They love you. Corporate meet? They're right up your street. After-work boozing? They're the ones to get you grooving.

Thank you so much Drink Shop & Do! We had an amazing crafternoon tea, where we decorated mugs. It was the perfect way to send off our colleague for her maternity leave. The staff were super friendly and helpful throughout the booking process and during our time there. Would definitely recommend to all! visited Drink Shop & Do on 14 Sep 2017

It was really fun and everyone seemed to enjoy it. The person hosting the activity for the hen party could have been a bit friendly, she was quite sharp with some of the guests (we were drunk and on a hen do so maybe a little annoying) but i think that could have been managed a bit better. Apart from that, great venue and we all had a lovely time. visited Drink Shop & Do on 09 Sep 2017

This brunch is really good value for money and as soon as our glasses were empty the staff were very quick to top them up again!! Great atmosphere too and delicious bagels. The only slight downfall was that the bagels took about 30 minutes to come each time your ordered. But I would still recommend this to people as it was really good! visited Drink Shop & Do on 02 Sep 2017

Hi, The bride and Hens really enjoyed the making of the flower head garlands, the host was fantastic and it was a lot of fun. However the reason for the lower score, the afternoon tea was very disappointing. It was of low standard, some of the bread used was a little stale, including the cakes. This is not something you wouls expect in any form of food services. Thanks, visited Drink Shop & Do on 02 Sep 2017

Reply from Drink Shop & Do

Thank you for taking the time to offer us feedback. We're so glad you enjoyed the flower headband making and thought your host was fantastic! I'm so sorry to read that you were disappointed with your afternoon tea. I've passed your comments on to our kitchen manager. Our bread and cake deliveries arrive on Saturday and Sunday morning so the afternoon tea should have been fresh. We'll be following up with our suppliers to find out what happened. We hope you still managed to have a lovely time and we very much hope to see you at Drink, Shop & Do again soon.

We were promised bubbles, bagels and board games however the only bit we were satisfied with were the bubbles...the bagels were really not very tasty and took a long time to arrive given how simple they were. There was a rubbish selection of poorly looked after board games - surely you could get some more from a charity shop or something? The waitress was nice however and did keep our prosecco bottomless. Would not visit again sorry. visited Drink Shop & Do on 20 Aug 2017

Reply from Drink Shop & Do

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. Customer feedback is so important to us as it helps us to improve! I'm glad to read that you enjoyed the bottomless prosecco. I'm sorry that our bagel toppings were not to your taste. Do you have any suggestions for bagel topping that I could pass on to the kitchen? I've passed on your comment about the food service being slow to our Kitchen Manager, who will be looking into how we can improve. I'm very sorry that you found the board games to be poorly looked after. As our bottomless brunch is quite popular it does mean that the games are subject to more wear and tare than usual and need to be replaced frequently. Thank you very much for bringing this to my attention. We have just invested in some more. I'm glad that your server was nice and kept your glasses topped. We would love to see you at Drink, Shop & Do again soon. Many Thanks Drink, Shop & Do

Absolutely amazing, thank you so much - everyone especially the Bride had an amazing time! Very welcoming and funny staff, and a special thanks to Maddy!!! (hope we got your name right, there was a lot of prosecco lol) Only thing stopping this from being a 5 was that the bride's name was incorrect on the blackboard when we arrived (but this was quickly rectified before she noticed). Still an amazing few hours though =D visited Drink Shop & Do on 05 Aug 2017

Bagels were pleasant and the drink top ups were frequent. Initially we were left waiting to order for a while considering it was very quiet in there on Sunday afternoon, but overall a pleasant experience alongside a game of scrabble ! visited Drink Shop & Do on 13 Aug 2017

Really fantastic experience at Drink Shop Do on one of their Bottomless Brunches. It was booked in advance for a work meet-and-greet and we had to change the date three times and they were beyond accommodating. The venue is gorgeous, the staff wonderful and they were even brilliant at putting everyone at ease with one another. The food and drink are fabulous and really worth the £25 per person! Could not have asked for a better experience. visited Drink Shop & Do on 13 Aug 2017

Service was slow, we waited 40 mins for a cheese board and charcuterie board. Then had to ask for plates and cutlery. Wouldn't rush back or recommend visited Drink Shop & Do on 09 Aug 2017

Reply from Drink Shop & Do

Thank you for your feedback. I'm terribly sorry to hear about the wait for your food. I'm afraid that unfortunately on busy evening mistakes can occur and unfortunately your cheese & charcuterie boards where taken to another table. The table that received these did not let us know that it was not their order so the kitchen and servers thought that your order was complete until you had brought to our attention 40 mins later that you were still waiting. Our kitchen made your order top priority to get your food out as quickly as possible. I'm so sorry for this delay. We very much hope to see you at Drink, Shop & Do again soon.

Our visit was fabulous! We came for bottomless brunch. Bagels were absolutely amazing ( i tasted all toppings, none of them was average, all were delicious). We are constantly attended by a waiter to top up our drinks and serve new bloody marries. Atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, food and drinks really high quality. Entire experience realy good value for money. visited Drink Shop & Do on 06 Aug 2017

My friends an I attended the Nipple Tassle workshop on Monday. We could buys delicious cocktails from the bar (the Lemon Tart was particularly good) and access the instructions and materials to make the items at our leisure. Music played in the background as we covered everything in glue and glitter. Such a nice changes for a Monday night - especially as the typical British Summer weather appears to be doing its usual. I'd definitely recommend this. visited Drink Shop & Do on 07 Aug 2017

A really great concept for a hen party, the lady who led the session was lovely and loved the room! The only thing I would mention is that we were made to feel a little uncomfortable when asking for our (bottomless) prosecco topped up...Minor issue though. visited Drink Shop & Do on 05 Aug 2017

The booking was not set up for the time we had arrange - our hen do package was not ready for our hen. The waiters and waitresses were very un-attentive - we had to go up to the bar frequently to ask for items. We had to ask them to clear our table 4 times. They kept getting half way through and then forgetting. So we didn't have space for the mug decorating we had arranged. The food was great though. Really big sandwich and salad portions. visited Drink Shop & Do on 06 Aug 2017

Reply from Drink Shop & Do

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback about your experience. I'm sorry that your table wasn't ready for your arrival. We have an email from yourself requesting your booking to be brought forward to 2.30pm which is when we'd expected you to arrive, so when you arrived at 11.30am, I'm afraid we were unprepared. If there was some correspondence we had missed where you'd requested this time I can only apologies. Our staff did the best they could on the day to get your table ready as promptly as possible at such short notice. I'm disappointed to read that you found our servers inattentive. I can understand how frustrating it must have been to request your table be cleared on numerous occasions. I'll be looking into why the service was slow on the day and carry out some training with the staff. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the food though, and I hope you managed to have a good time with us overall. We hope to see you at Drink, Shop & Do again soon.

It was nice enough but nothing special. Both myself and the people i met there have been a few times previously and this visit didn't live up to our expectations. Limited selection of salads(2) some sandwiches/rolls . It seemed to us that only one person was working there, managing the entrance/bar and seating area. It was far from busy which was fine for us and possibly the lady working there. I think underwhelmed is the best word, which is a pity as we've enjoyed many nice times there. I may try one more time and see if it was an off day . visited Drink Shop & Do on 01 Aug 2017

The food and style of the venue was amazing! The service wasn't great and as such we weren't able to start our 2 hours until half an hour after we were due to. The next group arrived and needed there table, which means we were asked to move. We were kindly given a complimentary drink to make up for it, however what we all really wanted was another bagel. Over all I would come again and recommend it, just wish there was more attentive service. Jordan visited Drink Shop & Do on 30 Jul 2017

It was really great! the Bagels were good and the persecco and bloody Mary's were delicious. However I didn't like the down payment for the reservation. It made it really hard to divide the bill as it was taken off of the total bill . Also there is no mention of a service charge on your website. We had to pay an extra 20 pounds for service . As a whole I enjoyed myself however the down payment and service charge gave me a bad customer experience. Anna visited Drink Shop & Do on 29 Jul 2017

I came here for the bottomless brunch to celebrate my birthday with a few friends on Saturday 22 July. The food and drink was great. However, one of our waiters/ bar man was quite rude. He wasn't very welcoming, and when it came to the end of our two hour time slot, he came over to us and simply said "you need to leave now". Very rude. We then had to reply asking for our bill. There was no please or thank yous, he just seemed a bit fed up really. On the other hand, one of the waitresses was very pleasant, very happy to serve us and every polite. I will be back for the food, drink and atmosphere, but the service was a big let down. visited Drink Shop & Do on 22 Jul 2017

I have been wanting to come to drink shop do for about 3 years so went for my 30th but because I had boys, decided the Lego would be the best option. I had pushed out rervations back slightly but our table still wasnt ready on arrival so we had to wait 15 minutes which is fine but then I felt that the robot wars is misleading on the website as we were just given old Lego to build something with after a half hearted explanation that we had to write about our robot to win. Not exactly the battle I was hoping for. The Lego didn't have much to go on and feel this needs updating with characters and more interesting pieces. We were told we had table service but this was very slow and the waitress seemed indifferent. I had to chase our orders 4 times and kept finding her chatting to a hen party. We then had to ask to be judged as we felt like we have just been forgotten in the back room. I'm sure that the other activities may be more interesting but I would not rush back for them after the level of service. visited Drink Shop & Do on 22 Jul 2017

Not terrible but wouldn't go again. Couldn't toast gluten free bread for a coeliac and waitress wasn't particularly apologetic even though this had been specified twice in the booking. Food service was a bit slow and generally overpriced for what it was. visited Drink Shop & Do on 23 Jul 2017

Reply from Drink Shop & Do

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback about your visit. We were aware of the gluten intolerance, as indicated during booking. After speaking with your server, they have informed me that on the day your guest indicated the severity of their gluten intolerance. Although we do offer gluten free bread the toasters are used for both gluten and gluten free items so we cannot guarantee if toasted the bread would be free of traces. Due to the severity of your guest's requirement she did not wish to risk making her unwell. Again I am sorry for any lack of clarity on the day. I'm disappointed to read that you found the food service to be slow. I've relayed these comments to our kitchen manager, who will be looking into how service could have been improved on the day.

100% recommend an afternoon/evening at drink shop do. We had such a fabulous time for my friends hen party. From booking through to going on the day the service was faultless. The afternoon tea was delicious and unlimited prosecco such good value. We made flower crowns as part of part of our do and had such a lovely lady Charlotte assisting and helping us. If you're looking for something fun a bit different and in a lively environment - this is definitely your place. visited Drink Shop & Do on 01 Jul 2017

The idea was great and the venue was lovely. However, I felt the organisation of it all was lacking a bit, I'm not really convinced what made it worth the money. We booked in for the clay making session and upon arrival weren't even shown to our table but were left to find the one with a mound of clay. I say mound of clay, there was the tiniest amount each, definitely didn't seem like £8 worth each. We also had to chase up whether there were any tools we could use to sculpt. We weren't offered anything to take our clay home in either, I had to ask if we could use takeaway food boxes. In summary I think it was a lovely idea for an activity and people did get into it but it definitely wasn't worth paying for, I could have done the same, or better, by doing it at home and just buying in some clay from online. A bit more of a friendly host for our activity/the venue as a whole wouldn't go amiss. The website makes it look like a really fun and lively atmosphere but we were just left on our own and it seemed like no one there cared. visited Drink Shop & Do on 07 Jul 2017

Excellent service - couldn't have gone any better. All of the staff were extremely helpful and polite and everyone's special diets and allergies were well catered for. We also really appreciated Charlotte offering to take photos for us throughout the experience so we had some lovely photos to take away with us (as well as some very stylish sashes!) Thank you so much - I will definitely be recommending drink shop do to everyone I know! visited Drink Shop & Do on 01 Jul 2017

Overall really great experience. The dome room was a good size and fitted our needs well. The staff were friendly and accommodating. A couple of small things: there was background music piped into the room randomly throughout the day. It wasn't a major problem so we didn't mention it to staff but another group might not have liked it. The lunch was lovely, really tasty and good quality, however there was a couple of times I asked if missing parts of it were coming out, to be told they were just coming, but after 10mins I'd have to go and ask again. Not a major problem but would have preferred to be told you'll have to wait 15mins in the first place, then I could have planned around it. Like I said though they are really small bits of feedback and overall I was delighted with the venue and the whole experience. Thank you! visited Drink Shop & Do on 28 Jun 2017

We came to Drink Shop Do for my sister's hen do, we had such a brilliant time and could not fault anything. The venue itself is really cool, the staff were brilliant and made the experience really enjoyable. The food was also so yummy, I'd highly recommend the bagels. Lots of the ladies that were with us said they'd go back and recommend to others. Thank you drink shop do, especially to Sarah and Flo for taking care of us :) visited Drink Shop & Do on 03 Jun 2017

I organised a hen do here with bottomless prosecco and bagels with the floral headband session. First of all a massive thank you to the team who were so lovely! They expertly cared for a large group of girls on a hen do perfectly. The prosecco was fast flowing and the bagels were very tasty. We had several tricky dietary requirements which was no problem at all! The flower headband session was excellent, very helpful lady, and they looked amazibg for the rest of the hen do! The team made an important, special day go so smoothly and it was simply great fun! I can highly recommend and would return again. visited Drink Shop & Do on 27 May 2017

Fantastic experience for my work team social, we had A LOT of fun! Great tasks, AMAZING food and great staff always on hand to help. One suggestion for larger parties in the future might be to have better communication around the flow of different tasks, food arriving etc. Overall, not any real complaints. Fantastic experience, lovely venue - would 100% recommend! Thanks guys! visited Drink Shop & Do on 25 May 2017

The make was good and food was nice enough. But the area wasn't ready when we arrived, the preordered drinks were not prepared and had to be requested. We then had to follow up on a few other things. The service didn't match expectations. visited Drink Shop & Do on 27 May 2017

Service wasn't great for the first hour or so. We had to wait over 10 minutes to get our first drink (considering there were so many staff standing around not serving and you only get 2 hours of unlimited prosecco) and had empty glasses for a bit each time we finished one before they were topped up again. Also the only meat option for the bagels wasn't available and there was no substitute. After the first hour things picked up and the service was lots better. Overall, it's definitely a worthwhile deal, and very good value. larab88 visited Drink Shop & Do on 21 May 2017

Food good. Service not great. Went to celebrate my birthday with a large group (18) as bottomless boozy bagels. Whilst the bagels were good quality, we had to keep asking for refills of bagels and prosecco more than 5 times. We received no egg mayonnaise bagels. Additionally the cake came over to me with an unlit candle and the waitress seemed surprised about it and asked us for a lighter. I would recommend this place for small groups and not in the back room as it's isolated. Angel visited Drink Shop & Do on 21 May 2017

Pros - Lovely spacious venue. Quick responses from staff when booking. Great selection of drinks. Good value. Great central location. Easy to find. Cons - very loud music in the context of a drinks party with no dancing or dance floors. We were unable to hear each other speak even when standing close. We asked the dj to turn it down with no response (bearing in mind we were a private party in that area). We asked the dj and management to turn down the music for 2 minutes so we could toast friends who couldn't make it - he would not turn it down low enough for me to be heard. Very disappointing. visited Drink Shop & Do on 20 May 2017

Our experience was great, with a few very small minor points. I'd phoned DSD & they knew we were a Hen party, but the area was set up in 3 individual tables. Quickly amended, but a shame. The bagels took a fairly long time to come out. In regard to the last order, we could have eaten and ordered another in the space of time they took. Otherwise it was all still great, and regardless of that, we had a great chilled enjoyable afternoon there! visited Drink Shop & Do on 06 May 2017

We were left quite disappointed by our Afternoon Tea Hen Party Booking. It is worth noting that a majority of the party arrived 20 minutes late for the booking, so this may have had an effect on how the experience played out. Firstly, I booked table decorations and a banner with the bride-to-be's name and these were not provided so had to request they were removed from the bill. Once the full party had arrived we were rushed into making the craft straight away. It was never explained to us how to event would run or when we would get drinks or food. No drinks were offered; we thought we would be getting pots of tea so no one went to the bar to buy anything additional. It would have been nice to have the tea served while we were crafting. The host leading the craft seemed distracted, perhaps looking after another table at the same time as us. She kept leaving us unattended so we would finish one stage of the craft then have to wait for her to come back to show us the next part, which meant that we spent a long 2 hours doing what should have been a quick and simple craft. We also had to wait for a long time for anyone to clear the craft supplies from table when we were finished as she hadn't come back to check on us. Perhaps incorrectly, we assumed that the afternoon tea would be served at the start of the booking so no one had eaten lunch prior to the arriving. The food was actually not served until half an hour before the end of our booking, by which time everyone was ravenous. I had to find someone to ask whether we were even booked for afternoon tea as we felt completely forgotten about, and was informed that we should have specified when we wanted the food and drinks served prior to the event. No one had requested I do this. The quality of the food and drinks was pretty poor. I will say that the scones and brownies were lovely but the sandwiches and other cakes were not, especially the vegetarian selection (sorry, but a sandwich filled with only mashed beans is not tasty). Even after receiving the food we still were not served the tea and again had to find someone to check on this. All in all, the service was very slow and sloppy, the food and drink was disappointing, the host was not attentive and the whole experience was a bit of a let-down on what should have been a special occasion. Definitely not worth £45 each and a shame to spoil someone’s hen party. visited Drink Shop & Do on 06 May 2017

The selection of games available during the Bottomless prosecco, bagels and boardgames session was limited and some were broken. We wanted quick to play games like guess who (broken) and connect 4 (only one available between everyone), they had lots of monopoly but it's just not feasible that many people will play that in a 2 hour period. More games please! Otherwise the service was good and we weren't rushed to leave which was really nice. Staff weren't particularly friendly but no complaints. We would come back and do something else there. visited Drink Shop & Do on 30 Apr 2017

The service was AMAZING- everybody was so friendly and went out of their way to make our experience great.

We were thoroughly disappointed with the evening. No member of staff welcomed us properly and explained the evening or interacted with anyone at any stage – Not even to judge. When we arrived, all there was were plastic containers with pieces of Lego and pieces of paper. For £8 a person, I am struggling to reconcile what this charge was for and how it can be justified and should be refunded. visited Drink Shop & Do on 25 Apr 2017

Tucked down Caledonian Road near Kings Cross is this amazing bar-come cafe-come activity extravaganza! Drink Shop Do is a one stop shop for fun, laughs and quirky evenings. An eccentric array of workshops ranging from card making, pinatas and even tea-biscuit decorating. I also recommend their bottomless brunches as the bubbles or bloody mary's are flowing and bagels are unlimited! A 2 hour sitting of creative bagel toppings that are suitable for a variety of dietary requirements left me nearly needing to be rolled out down the stairs. I didn't want to leave as Drink Shop Do is full of friendly staff and delicious food and drinks. Whenever in doubt of where to find a place to drink, dance and create a random craft head to Drink Shop Do for a laugh! Evie visited Drink Shop & Do on 23 Apr 2017

I enjoyed the bagels but it was definitely a struggle ordering them and keeping the Prosecco topped up. For some reason, the person serving the bagels gave us dirty dishes twice. We had to flag the bagel server down both times as the first set of plates we received to eat from had soggy biscuits holding them together and the other set of plates had water drenched squished bagel and bread holding them together. 50% of the cutlery and glassware we received wasn't clean either but we decided after the plate fiasco to just check all dishes that were brought to the table. There was one amazing server/bartender who made and did her best to make sure I enjoyed my birthday celebrations and her efforts were greatly appreciated. (Her efforts are why I have put three stars instead of 2!) The bagels were tasty also... just the service (except the one server) and cleanliness weren't great. visited Drink Shop & Do on 25 Mar 2017

Thanks for taking the time to feedback to us, it is always appreciated and very helpful. The condition you were given those plates are quite frankly shocking and I am in the process of finding out who served you on that day (if you could describe them it would assist me in narrowing it down as we have a rather large team) as we agree it is completely unacceptable. While we are investigating this, I would like to invite you down for brunch for you and a friend. on us. We would love the opportunity to change your mind.

I had to walk over and ask for service, they weren't very friendly. The vegan cake was so dry I had to ask to swap it, and the second one was equally dry. Disappointing as the last time I went the cakes were great. Would recommend getting a new supplier! visited Drink Shop & Do on 21 Apr 2017

Reply from Drink Shop & Do

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that your server wasn't very friendly. Being a fun and welcome is one of our core values, so this is really saddening to hear. I'll be carrying out hospitality training with the staff. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. We have also moved over to bar service during the week, which might be a change if you have visited us in the past. Still, we ask our servers to make guests aware upon entry, so again, I apologies if this wasn't made clear and caused any unnecessary waiting. Would you but do you happen to remember what flavour the cake was? We have quite a variety of vegan cakes and a few suppliers so it would greatly help us so we can give feed back to the right supplier. Thank you again for taking the time to offer your feedback, we very much hope to see you at Drink, Shop & Do again soon.

Booked a table for birthday drinks and nibbles in the upstairs area. Music was super loud and sound system was terrible. They moved us to the entrance area. We could finally hear each other but table was small for 10 people. Anyway, we were very happy they could change this change last minute and the lady working there was lovely and very helpful. One of the bartenders had no idea how to make cocktails. We were also served a 60£ champagne bottle not cold. Food was a disaster £95 for a shared platter that honestly, not worth more than £30. Very disappointing experience... visited Drink Shop & Do on 21 Apr 2017

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback, it is always greatly appreciated. We are sorry that you felt the music was too loud, we do always try to keep it at an ambient level until about 8PM on Fridays and then have it slowly increase in volume to try and get an atmosphere going but In this case it seems we misjudged it. Could you describe the faults with the sound system? Im sorry the party platter didn't meet your expectations, is there anything you think it was lacking that could have improved it? In light of this, we would like to invite you back, if you are able, for a cold bottle of champagne and a cheese board on us.

Once again it was a really fun night at Drink, Shop & Do. Downstairs the music was fabulous and we had a wonderful time decorating our crowns. Fab idea!! 🙏🏼💕 Unfortunately people had taken over our table to decorate their crowns. By the time we arrived our table looked like an absolute mess. Also, upstairs the music was quite loud and not 80/90 pop rock as promoted. but overall, super fun night. 🙌🏼 visited Drink Shop & Do on 21 Apr 2017

I love this place; quirky craft items, mismatched teacups and pots, yummy cocktails and great food and cake really what more could you ask for. This is a very unique space (everything you see is on sale) but it's a great place to hang out. They also have regular crafty make and do nights, however I have been to a couple and have found it hard to know who to approach to get involved. The atmosphere is quite relaxed but this depends on where you sit and in some places the tables are crowded. This coupled with the odd acoustics of the place (I heard this used to be a bath house) means that when it is busy, this is a place that might be best avoided. Overall a thumbs but only when it's quiet enough to hear yourself think. Tip: get their early as it's usually rammed. Food and drinks are available and amazing!

I booked a table for 4.30pm for my birthday, we arrived at 4.20pm and were told our table would be ready in 'a couple of minutes' and someone would come to collect us. At 4.40pm we were still waiting. I asked again at 4.45pm, when a lady pointed upstairs and said yes it's up there. We found our own table and had to wait until 4.55pm before we got a drink. The bagels were slow and we consistently had to wait a considerable amount of time after asking for a drink top up. We felt like the staff were reluctant. On two occasions we were also brought the wrong bagels. A waitress, who I must add was probably the most helpful, accidentally spilt tomato juice down my beige coat. We were told it was our last order at 6.20 (when we hadn't sat down until 4.45 nor received our drink until 4.55). Overall, the main lady who helped us at the beginning was quite helpful but with this exception, it was a disappointing experience in a place I had chosen after much research. visited Drink Shop & Do on 08 Apr 2017

Came here for the bottomless brunch as part of a weekend in London for my partners 40th. I had emailed ahead to let them know it was my partners birthday and they had decorated the table with a chalkboard sign saying happy birthday and there was a teacup filled with sweets, it was a really nice touch. Service was great, bagels were lovely, they even brought my partners first bagel out with a candle in it. The only tiny criticism that I have is that I found the selection of games to be quite limited and in poor condition. Our party wanted to play scrabble and although there are loads of boxes of scrabble, we had to open about 5 before we found one that was complete and once back at our table, realised that the scrabble tiles In the bag came from about 3 or 4 different sets. It's not a big deal but think they should update the games. However, it was still a great experience and we will be back. Claire visited Drink Shop & Do on 02 Apr 2017

My 5 friends and I had a fun hen party at DSD. However, there were a handful of things that weren't great about it. For starters, the table we were assigned was far too small. There were six of us, and we had elected to do a craft and have afternoon tea, and there just wasn't room for both of these things - or either, to be fair! - at the dingy thrift store table where they parked us. The staff kindly moved us to a larger table halfway through the event, so perhaps there had been a double booking. We were told after sitting down that we wouldn't be having the afternoon tea until 90 minutes in, which left us a bit bemused as none of us had had lunch, expecting to have nibbles soon after our session started. (on the upside this meant the bottomless prosecco we opted for took its effect a lot sooner!) We also weren't informed until well over an hour into our session that we were meant to abandon our crafting after 90 minutes! We informed the staff in no uncertain terms that we'd be cracking on with it for the remainder of our 3-hour session, as 90 minutes really isn't enough to complete the craft we'd started (and actually most of us took home ours to finish, so I don't personally think some of the crafts on offer should be included). Fortunately the staff were incredibly accommodating, friendly and helpful, and the food on offer was really gorgeous, especially nice sandwiches and very accommodating of all our dietary requirements. I think anyone going on a Saturday has to expect that it will be busy and noisy and chaotic, which I suppose is a given. visited Drink Shop & Do on 18 Feb 2017

We booked for 5 for the bottomless brunch. When we arrived we were told our table was in the downstairs seating area. Unfortunately it was very dark down there and smelt like a night club. The tables around us were occupied by very loud groups and we could barley hear what anyone was saying. Luckily the staff were nice enough to re located us upstairs after we asked. The upstairs seating area was lovley and the staff where very nice and helpful! The food and drinks were really nice and great value for the price.

Hello. The whole set up was amazing and the team were so flexible when a few of our group were late so wet moved the afternoon tea to after the event. My only comment (and is very small! ) is that the music was quite loud when we were trying to have a chat with the whole table and do a quiz. Unfortunately it meant we couldn't carry out all our plans for the bride to be. However everyone had a great time and wet all loved it and would recommend it to others. visited Drink Shop & Do on 11 Feb 2017

I really like Drink Shop & Do, and have been there for various other events. I was a little disappointed by the lack of board game choice, and our version of Scrabble had a weird mix of different tile sets (two Qs for instance!). It would be good to go through and check the sets, maybe adding in some more. But the drinks and bagels were great. visited Drink Shop & Do on 05 Feb 2017

What a hidden gem!! We had a bottomless brunch for my sisters 30th, just 3 of us, me my sister and mum. We had a lovely time! Staff were very attentive, kept your drink topped up and the bagels were to die for! A very fun afternoon!! 😊 visited Drink Shop & Do on 04 Feb 2017

I organised a hen party for 18 people and all the staff at DSD were brilliant in the lead up and on the day. Andrew in particular was really helpful and made sure that we were looked after right up to paying the bill. I really appreciated his help at the end of the night. I fed back to him that for such a big group, paying individually on the night wasn't ideal and if there had been a pre-payment option we definitely would have done that to avoid issues with payment. But everyone was so pleased with their fascinators and we had a brilliant time! visited Drink Shop & Do on 04 Feb 2017

The overall concept of Drink Shop Do is great, and I liked the venue but I can't say I was very impressed with the service on Saturday. I had booked the table weeks earlier, making it very clear it was a 30th birthday celebration, and hoped we would have a fantastic experience. When we arrived we were told to find our own table - we weren't shown to it - and then the table wasn't cleared, there half chewed food on the table and around it, and nothing for our booking was set up. It then took a long time for anyone to come and speak to us - and even longer for drinks and food orders to be taken. The Bloody Mary's did not taste good. Then, having been there 2 hours, we were told we would have to move so they could set up for the dancing area in the evening but they hadn't even bought the cake we had purchased over. We were then charged a ridiculous amount for service - and I don't think we got the service to justify it. Luckily the music in the evening was good, and the company was great so we had a good time regardless but I wasn't that impressed - we weren't a walk in, we had booked and expected better service. Cake was very tasty though! visited Drink Shop & Do on 04 Feb 2017

Staff were very friendly and we loved the afternoon tea. Only one problem, on booking I had specifically asked for 16 people and was reassured that the table would not feel cramped and that we would have a round table. When we got there we were given a load of tables put together in a straight row. We were lucky that 2 people didn't turn up otherwise the table would have been too small. Next time on making bookings, please ensure that what a customer was offered is what they receive on arrival. Otherwise all good. visited Drink Shop & Do on 04 Feb 2017

Drink Shop DON'T. - Not friendly. Not helpful. Not a pleasant experience. Not cheap either. Do yourself a favour and have a less bland but equally corporate experience around the corner at Starbucks! visited Drink Shop & Do on 02 Feb 2017

I had my leaving party at DSD and even though I couldn't book a private room it was as though I had one! BRILLIANT venue couldn't have been better and great service! Loved working with Tali the only suggestion is that it would have been good to have been able to order food into my event. The menu is not extensive so that's the only feedback I have. Other than that I had the best night! Thanks so much DSD!!Dahlia visited Drink Shop & Do on 02 Feb 2017

I had bottomless brunch here with a group of friends - overall it was great! It was strictly table service only but we were served frequently and got our money's worth in the end :) My only slight criticisms would be they were quite disorganised at first, they couldn't find my order and didn't show us where to go etc. They were also reluctant to serve my sister & I while we waited for friends who were running late!

We all had a really good time. Was great that we got slightly longer as not everyone arrived at 12:30pm but Daly (I think that's what her name was) was great. My only criticism would be that I paid £20 for 2 sets of balloons and some sweets and they weren't there for when I arrived. I also have still not received my deposit back and I was told I would get that on Monday. visited Drink Shop & Do on 14 Jan 2017

We opted for Christmas Buffet for our group. There was a fun vibe mostly thanks to great nearby tables/people and the music, but disappointingly some staff were very unhappy and unfriendly, the activity was very much DIY with craft supplies on a nearby table and no staff to facilitate or explain what is available/happening, and most disappointing was the food was cold and portions were very small even and as a group of women who don't eat much, we were starving afterwards. For the price it was very disappointing and sadly we will not come back for a group party again. visited Drink Shop & Do on 09 Dec 2016

We celebrated our office Christmas party last Monday at Drink, Shop & Do. The staff were extremely helpful trying to accommodate all our requirements, and the food was very very good. We had an amazing time, enjoying with the photobooth, dancing, and dinning and everything within the same venue. Very flexible and really nice. Many thanks to all the staff! visited Drink Shop & Do on 19 Dec 2016

We had a brilliant bottomless, bagel brunch for my friends hen do! Great service and they kept our prosecco glasses well topped up. The table was beautifully decorated for our party and they even let us put up our own photos of the bride-to-be. The bagels were a little uninspiring and as they brought lots all at once they turned cold pretty quickly. But it didn't spoil the fun and would definitely recommend this place! I'd like to go back again with more time to try the crafts too. visited Drink Shop & Do on 18 Dec 2016

The entrance smell like sick The room was amazing, and service lovely but bouncers were unbelievably rude. I left to go for a cig, and helped a random lady with a glass of water (she was very drunk!) and then was not allowed back in to collect my coat or birthday gifts. I understand a policy is a policy so was happy to cooperate, But the bouncers tone, attitude and language was not professional and really left a sour taste at the end of a good night Jade visited Drink Shop & Do on 17 Dec 2016

I totally appreciate you're on to a money spinner but this year (having been here for Christmas Dos for the past 3 years), you overfilled the place. We barely had enough room on the table to do the crafts or eat our food - the place was so full, we couldn't hear eachother talk or even get out to go to the bathroom. The food was noticeably more 'cafeteria' style this year to push it out fast. A real shame... visited Drink Shop & Do on 14 Dec 2016

We recently hosted our office Christmas party at DSD. The Games Host really 'made' the party - he got everyone involved and we all had a really good time. What let DSD down was the buffet. We were really disappointed as we were told there was going to be plenty of food to go around. What came out were some canapes, pork pies and yorkshire puds stuffed with two different fillings. It certainly wasn't substantial (especially not for £18 per head) and people were left hungry as there's only so many pork pies/pate on a cracker you can eat. The coeliac platter looked very sparse and consisted of some pepper sticks and a lettuce leaf topped with pate. I was assured there would be ample food and that there'd be plenty of leftovers. There were certainly plenty of leftovers, because people were bored with the same food. The drinks on arrival weren't ready when we arrived which was annoying as I'd specifically sent over a timeplan. It felt poorly organised. We had to stress quite a few times that we wanted the drinks to be flowing freely and no one to be left with an empty glass. We enjoyed the Xmas jumper making (but, again, I had to prompt staff to start it) and pass the parcel, and the prosecco was delicious!! It could have been so much better but it was poorly managed, visited Drink Shop & Do on 14 Dec 2016

I was very excited to be planning a baby shower for my friend at Drink, Shop and Do, having been there previously for other events. I was unfortunately very disappointed with the service that we received on this occasion. I arrived right on time, knowing that many of the baby shower guests did not know one another, to find that the table was still being set up, the bunting still being hung and we were asked to wait downstairs. Luckily, the mother-to-be was running late, but there were four of us (one with a child) stood waiting at the base of the stairs for 10 minutes while the table was being set up. Unfortunately, three of our party were unable to attend on the day - two of them were unwell and didn't want to be around our pregnant friends, worried they might pass something on, and a third had to stay home to nurse her child who was also unwell. I found it incredulous that Drink Shop and Do retained £30 of the deposit because of these non-attendances. It was not the fault of the sick guests that they had fallen unwell, and certainly not my fault as the organiser that they could not attend. It was my assumption that the deposit I had paid would simply be taken off the total bill, not that £30 of it would be retained in lieu of those who did not attend. We were also charged for 10 x afternoon teas, rather than than for the nine people who attended. I certainly would not arrange an event here again or recommend that any of my friends do. This is such a shame, because the rest of the day was lovely, the mother-to-be had a fantastic time, and I had always thought this to be a fun and friendly venue. visited Drink Shop & Do on 11 Dec 2016
