Reviews

  • Excellent

    The wine and cheese was excellently laid out and the barwoman was very helpful explaining all the choices

    Excellent wine and cheese

    The staff was really nice and we felt very welcome. The wine and cheese were excellent.

  • An emotional thank you....

    Hi
    The level of service from you and from Le Bar is excellent - I would highly recommend you (both) and use you again.
    Thank you particularly for your sensitive communication - you turned what could have been a difficult emotional experience into a very positive one (I had bought the experience for my husband who very sadly died a few months ago and I wasn't sure if I would be able to - or should - enjoy the experience but I did and now have a lovely memory connected to him even though he wasn't with me).
    Thank you again, I think it's important you know that customer service can sometimes mean so much more than just delivering good service, and for me, you did so much more on this occasion.

    Exquisite cheese and wine, especially if you are not that knowledge about either!

    Really enjoyed this, had organised for a group of five. Two of which are now hunting down the cheeses we tried! Highly recommend, service was superb.

  • Le Bar

    Very nice. Waitress was lovely. She explained all the wine and cheeses.

    Superb!

    Excellent service, beautiful wine and delicious cheese.

  • Cheese and Wine

    Lovely experience with 6 great cheeses paired with 3 wines (white, red, dessert), introduced by a knowledgeable French lady. Highly recommended!

    Le Bar Gascon is fabulous

    French lady was exceptional as she set us up for a proper experience & then food & wine were sumptuous.

  • Would definitely do it again!

    Very enjoyable. Lovely surrounding. Cheeses perfectly matched Perhaps a little more info about the wines and maybe more than 3 wines but then again, I do love wine! I would definitely do again.

    Thoroughly enjoyable

    Very friendly and informative with the wine and cheese pairing. Really relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable. Would definitely recommend to others.

  • Dreamy dessert wine and blue cheese combination!

    Fabulous wine, got to try wines we haven't had before. Never knew there was a 100% French Malbec! Cheese pairing was great, especially for the dessert wine and I don't even like dessert wine.

    Lovely experience

    Very friendly, attentive and lovely experience. Thank you

  • Nice experience

    It was a really nice experience. It felt very personal and the later who served us was very friendly and helpful

    Great experience!

    Lovely waitress who treated us to a birthday drink, didn't push for a tip but how could we not, she was great and so was the wine and cheese! Xxx

  • Lovely gift for pre- theatre experience

    Lovely choice of wines and cheeses. Nice staff and venue. Very small pieces of cheese but overall v nice.
