I held my baby shower in the Cabin room (private room) which we really enjoyed. It was perfect size to sit have food which was really tasty and drinks but also play games! The stuff was attentive but there were times we had to go down to ask for cuttleries and plates when the food arrived so it may be better for future to keep plenty in the room but other than that we all were very pleased. Thank you for looking after us we had a great time. See you soon! visited The Merchant on 21 Oct 2017

Reply from The Merchant

Thank you very much for the lovely review and feedback. We are glad you had a great time in our private room. Thank you also for the helpful feedback, going forward we will make sure the room is properly stocked with any extras guests may need. We hope to see you again, Team Merchant.

food and drink ok, it is a bit too noisy visited The Merchant on 20 Oct 2017

Reply from The Merchant

Thank you for your feedback, we can have times particularly on Thursday and Friday nights that can be a little livelier than others, with after work drinkers. We hope this hasn't put you off and you will give us another try soon. Thank you Team Merchant.

The food was ok, the service was polite but he didn't really have a clue about anything on the menu or what came with the dishes etc. The Menu really isnt broad enough and was a little classier when the place was called the Tea Merchant. We weren't wowed in the slightest but it was a perfectly average Thursday lunch. More variety please guys! visited The Merchant on 12 Oct 2017

Reply from The Merchant

Thank you for the feedback, I am sorry that you didn't like our change in menu as much. We are working on some new dishes now we are moving into the winter season so I do hope you drop by and give us another try.

Excellent day spent with a gathering of family & friends. All staff were excellent from when we booked the venue & throughout the time spent with you. Only downside some beers were not available, in particular London Pride, which was slightly disappointing as it was the 1st choice for many of the guys in our party visited The Merchant on 07 Oct 2017

Reply from The Merchant

Thank you so much for the great review, we are really glad you and your family and friends enjoyed the day. I am so sorry about the London Pride we really strive to have that available at all times and it is disappointing that we didn't. I do hope you can drop by soon as we will have a nice pint of pride ready for you!

The venue was great, staff very helpful and wide variety of drinks and food. We had a lovely time on our work team outting and stayed until closing. The only thing I would change is arranging the booking was a bit complicated and whilst the venue is great the £50 booking fee is a bit dear. visited The Merchant on 27 Sep 2017

Reply from The Merchant

Thank you for the great feedback, we are really happy you enjoyed your time with us. The £50 refundable deposit amount has been reduced since the refurbishment but it is still helpful to hear that customers find it a little complicated. Thank you again and we hope you visit us soon! Team Merchant

We went on a Sunday afternoon, was very quiet but otherwise all good - service was good, and the roast beef was very tender and delicious. Sadly, they don't have a decent selection of tea despite the name! visited The Merchant on 29 Jan 2017

It was a lovely evening and the food was of a high standard. However the service was slow and at times disorganised. A member of staff had confirmed with one of my guests they could pick off a different menu but I received a call on the day that the ingredients had not been ordered which caused some stress a few hours before we were due to arrive. However overall it was a very good experience and I'll be back. visited The Merchant on 12 Dec 2016

We were sitting near a window and the draft was terrible. We had to sit with our coats over our legs. Food was pricey for what we got and we all though it was very salty. Waitress was good and wine was lovely. visited The Merchant on 29 Nov 2016

They placed a group of 15 for drinks at a row of tables in the way of one of the busiest routes of traffic in the place. When I asked if the tables could be taken away I was told no. Then 5 minutes later one could be taken away. Then maybe 10 minutes later they were able to take a second table away. This helped, but the servers still had to walk through our group to deliver food/drinks and they certainly showed their annoyance with us even though I had pointed out this would be an issue when we arrived. Other then the horrible planning, it was a really good night with my team. Kristin visited The Merchant on 16 Nov 2016

The pub is nicely decorated a little bit off the beaten track. Arrived at 7 was very lively, flavoured gins a treat, not sure of price as mine was complimentary. My friend had fish and chips and mushy peas which were fab. I had charcuterie plate which had nice parma ham and lo grade chorizo and salami. I had another small plate of mozzarella and beetroot and grapefruit, nice combination but restricted portionage. By 2130 pub was quiet, due to its location surely, on a summers evening, I'm sure stunning location would make this a treat! adebayo visited The Merchant on 18 Oct 2016
