Visited for Sunday brunch on Father’s Day. Food was really good and kids were well catered for - especially the chocolate fondue dessert! Restaurant was quite quiet and we were lucky to get a booth. Food, cocktails and atmosphere are consistently good.

Fantastic atmosphere. The Jazz band playing on Sundays is great, their singer has an amazing voice. Nice that they take requests too. The food was lovely but each dish had a small detail that let it down (steak a little over cooked, sauce a little...More

Berts Jazz Bar has a lovely atmosphere & the waiter staff are very professional. The food was very disappointing. The nibbles (parsnip crisps & olives) were basic; the smallest olives I've ever seen with large stones; parsnip crisps a bit over cooked. The £26.50 ribeye...More

We had just one drink here. Over £5.00 a pint but it is a five star hotel. Lady who served us was friendly. We sat outside at tables watching world go back. Nice bar to have a drink.

Had an absolute blast at Berts Saturday night. Although a tad in the expensive side it was worth every penny. Our waiter recommended a better table with more room as we had opted for the sharing steak for our mains. The scallop starter was sublime....More

There’s no clear dress code here. You can wear casual attire, or you can scale up to something a bit dressier, but it’s not formal. Hope that helps!

A 5 piece Jazz band plays every week night at 9 that is true but maybe you would be interested in the fact there is a set on every Sunday with a solo pianist between 12 & 2pm? It's a very relaxed atmosphere.
