Really bad, they didn't have any of their main meals available. They said they called me but they didn't leave a voicemail to let me know the kitchen problem. I called back twice and no one answered. visited The Elgin on 12 Feb 2017

Hi Jemma, we're so sorry to hear about your experience. We had a much busier than usual Sunday that day which meant our kitchen ran out of quite a few of our dishes. We hope you give us another chance and that we’ll see you again soon. Thanks, Team Elgin.

Our favourite local pub pulled all the stops again so we had a wonderful birthday party. The staff are always so cheerful, helpful and accommodating, they make everything possible so you can have a fun night. As a regular, it's nice to see them every time I walk in. Food and drinks are also great. visited The Elgin on 14 Jan 2017

They did our ultra relaxed wedding reception upstairs. It was fantastic. We had an open bar and canapés served all evening. The staff was wonderful, the service was great and the canapés were delicious. Not your typical pub grub. Many of our guests told us they loved the venue, the food and the staff. visited The Elgin on 07 Jan 2017

The Elgin is a beautiful lounge, and somewhere I often visit. The staff are always helpful and accommodating and the vibe is great. The reason I reviewed my trip there as two stars was because the booking process was poor. I booked a table for a large group for Christmas dinner two months prior only to show up and be shown a table in the downstairs general area. The staff apologised and were helpful but the relaying of information between the booking team and the in-house team should be improved. We were also told we had to pre book if we wanted the Christmas menu which was not relayed to us before-hand when I specifically asked. It also took 2 months to get a reply re: dietary requirements for one of our diners. A few other hiccups with orders throughout the night didn't help either. Would I visit again? Of course, because it really is a nice establishment and i've never had a problem there in the past, however the booking process could definitely be improved. (I wasn't going to leave a review after our experience there but I received an automated email from The Elgin asking me to leave one so I wanted to give back some constructive criticism). visited The Elgin on 20 Dec 2016

Good beer selection. It's a small pub so when it's busy, it's *noisy*, but it's great for a drink on week nights. visited The Elgin on 09 Dec 2016

We had a lovely evening. It would have been 5 stars but the one sofa cushion is awful and the service was slow at first. Overall, very happy with our experience ! visited The Elgin on 28 Oct 2016

Easily the best food in the area (one of the top 3 steaks in my life). Also the coffee is better than anywhere else within a mile or two. I know this because I spend too much time cafe hopping. visited The Elgin on 22 Oct 2016

Been to the Elgin numerous times since I discovered it a year ago, it's a great place with good food, brilliant drinks and staff whom you can't escape a chilled chat with while at the bar. This time was no different - in fact this was for my birthday, and everything about arranging a booking was easy and flexible, especially thanks to the staff. Keep up the good work! visited The Elgin on 21 Oct 2016

Great. Reserved a table in advance so we had a good portion of the back area. The leather sofa is in really bad shape. Hard to sit on as on one side only its like sitting on the frame the cushion is so worn. Apart from that service was great, ambiance great, not full of under 21's. visited The Elgin on 15 Oct 2016

Cara and her team took excellent care of us, despite some of our guests being a total mess by the end of the night! Great space, huge compliments from all attendees on the food, and a great range of drinks available. They really went above and beyond for us and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks again.

The staff here were incredibly accommodating at very short notice for a party of 15 of us. Food and drink was great and they also helped put together a spread of nibbles. Will definitely be back!

I discovered the Elgin for a friend's 40th birthday on 7th May and would like to highlight how great our barman was. I'm not too sure of his name (I did tell him he looked like James McAvoy, hopefully this will help identifying him :)) but what he was absolutely outstanding: the friendliest barman I ever came across, always a smile on his face, very patient, very accommodating - and with a bunch of drunk people, it's quite admirable! Had a great night, and will come back!

I hired the Elgin for my 40th birthday party and was delighted with the venue and the service received. The planning was perfectly managed by Vicki and Denise and on the night, the bar staff couldn't have been more helpful (special thanks to our personal bar man for his energy and enthusiasm on the night - I think it was Adam but my memory is a little blurry!). I can't recommend the Elgin highly enough if you are looking to plan a party in a stylish venue with a fun / lively atmosphere. Thanks to all the Elgin team for making it such a special night!
