I took the kids out for tea to the so bar, the food was good and the service was brilliant. The food didn’t take long to come and it was well cooked and very tasty. The kids loved it! Will definitely be coming back! Thank you for the great service

Me and my friend went for lunch yesterday Saturday 29th may, when we walked in we were greeted with a smile and safely checked in and shown to a table by Jason and with it been a hot day and a bank holiday weekend they were busy but you would of never of thought it the staff were so on the ball! They always made sure we had a drink or checking we were okay!the food was amazing and came out quickly. Our waitress was mainly the lovely poppy and what a delight she was to be around! The whole team are an absolute credit to the place! Will most definitely be back!

We saw the reciews and decided to have a quick drink.. we had 1 pint of local ale and 1 medium glass of prosecco.. sadly the later was barely 125 mls and the glass was not at all full. When we enquired why it wasnt 175ml as paid for we were told it was a large glass. It certainly was not a large glass and no way 175ml. We were then charged over £11 for the two drinks
Needless to say we wont be going back!!

Hi Dee

We are very sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your drinks on your recent visit. Obviously its difficult to respond fully without having seen the glass used and the amount poured. However we unusually served prosecco in three sizes 125ml (the standard size served everywhere) plus 175ml and 250ml which is a large. Our prosecco glasses are designed for the 125ml and we put the other sizes in our large wine glasses, which to top can hold 600ml of liquid. This means that on normal comparisons the 175ml can look small in the glass. I am not saying that it was 175ml, i am just pointing out that it does.

We would love to discuss this further and would ask you email us on info@sobarandeats.co.uk so we can.

sorry again you felt the large prosecco and pint didnt offer you the value you were looking for.

A regular, here, and pleased to inform that the food, and service is, still, equally as good as before lockdown. We, all, need to support local businesses, like this

Would recommend to others.
