    So we booked last min and was very disappointed! We booked the boozy brunch on a Saturday night and not only was dessert selection poor they didn’t have what I wanted in stock. Being a weekend you would think they would be prepared. Half the cocktail selection couldn’t have because they had faulty tools. And the cocktails we had didn’t even taste like alcohol. The staff looked like they had just rolled out of high school also

    Such a lovely venue, amazing cocktails. Service was slow and slightly dissappinting as we had to wait over 30 mins for our first drinks which we had to order 3 times because they kept forgetting iour order and we were without drinks due to speed of service later in our visit too. Overall though. Lovely venue, drinks were the best cocktails I have had and I will definately be visiting again.
    Cosmo's Cocktail BarResponded on February 4, 2024
    Hi HelenM, thank you for your positive comments regarding our cocktails, we're really pleased that you enjoyed them! We are however extremely sorry about the longer than usual wait times and any confusion around your drinks order - it really isn't our usual level of service. As a result of staff sickness, we were caught a bit short yesterday. We'd love to welcome you back again soon, so you can continue to enjoy our fabulous cocktails with the amazing service which we pride ourselves on. Kind regards, Cosmo's Management.

    Turned up for a booking slightly early but table was already available. We were told of certain items which weren’t available to order on the food menu which was disappointing but proceeded. Once our order was placed which was swiftly about 10 minutes later we were told that 3 of our 4 main meals went out of stock which was extremely disappointing so we ordered something else but was given a cocktail for the inconvenience. About 1 hour later our food arrived after we questioned it. The food was amazing to be fair and the service was faultless and they couldn’t apologise enough. I can’t blame any colleagues for any issue we experienced. Would I return. Not soon but something really needs to change there unless it would be another restaurant shutting in friars walk.

    Hello, thank you so much for taking the time to leave your comments and we are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed our food and service. We are however extremely sorry about some items which were out of stock yesterday. This isn't the experience we want to deliver at all - however due to challenges with our food delivery yesterday which was out of our control, we sadly found ourselves in this challenging situation with certain items being unavailable. We do apologise if this impacted your visit - please get in touch with us via e-mail: hello @cosmosbars.co.uk with your details, as we'd like to discuss it further and offer a little gesture to you. We really hope you will visit us again soon and continue to support our local family-run business. Kind regards, Cosmo's Management.

    A true bottomless brunch! We didn’t hold out much hope if the cocktails bring bottomless as we’ve had to wait in other places between drinks but the servers were attentive and taking our orders before we’d sometimes not even got halfway through! The cocktails were obviously fresh and made well and the food very good. Only negative was a few dishes were unavailable (though no biggie) and the menus and table were a little sticky. Fabulous service and would definitely return and recommend. Thanks for the (not too bad) hangover!

    I had a table booked for 8pm on the 16.12.23 party of 7, they sat us in 2 separate booths. I asked to be sat on another table but we couldn’t. The booth was very small for a party of that size. We all very squashed and didn’t not have much room. I preordered the food 2 weeks before off the Christmas menu, which was 2 courses for £23.95. We all just had I course. The food took I hour and 10 minutes to be served. When we finally got our meals it was cold and three meals were sent back. One of my friends did not eat her meal. Another friend was ill last after her meal. When we asked for the bill, they forgot to take of the £80 deposit off it! Which I had to ask several times to be taken off! It did get taken off in the end!! The overall service was not very good, all I got management was it’s Christmas and it’s a busy time of year! I work in retail, I totally understand but I wouldn’t service any customer the way we was serviced last night!! We won’t be going back!

    It was my 1st time visiting and I wasn't too impressed.. I had the pasta meatballs and it was very bland.. the pasta was hard and the meatballs where dry.. also the cocktails we had where weak tasted like premade stuff.. we didn't complain when we was in there because it's the festive season and the place was very busy so we ate our food had our drink and left.. we felt very underwhelmed for what it's hyped up to be. I've been wanting to try the restaurant for so long and felt let down.. the staff was lovely it was nothing to do with the staff it's just very poor quality food and drinks.

    Shocking food and service here. We arrived for our booking at 6:30, got seated on two separate booths for a pre booked party of 7 then when we did get seated together it took over an hour and a half to get food, starters came with the main, the veg was completely raw! Staff were only concerned with trying to get us to drink more cocktails: which we refused. Staff started clearing the table before all members had finished eating. Manager was rude, refused to compromise, and rushed us out because we made complaints. Definitely not worth the price or the time!

    Food was cold and gravy was like water. Out of the 6 of us who attended, not one single main was finished and all half touched. Took over half an hour for dessert to come out after the mains were taken. Also brought out an incorrect bill of £200 more than the correct bill was meant to be luckily we checked as someone could’ve paid for this. Wouldn’t ever go back.

    The festive menu , vegetarian roast was delicious. Large portions. Cocktails and Mocktails lovely. Service was shocking, waited a long time for our drinks, even though, it wasn't that busy. Music far too loud, couldn't have a conversation across the table.

    Very disappointed, we had to wait an hour and 20 mins for our starters , the mains were just okay , I had the steak and the mushroom was bigger than the steak , the drinks tater nice but we had to wait so long for them ,we only had 2 courses as we didn’t know how long we would have to wait for pudding . The noise level was ridiculous, the sax player was too loud and we were a lie to have a count, the staff spent a lot of time chatting by the tills, Would not recommend.

    Hi MichelleJ, thank you for your visit and for leaving your comments. We do apologise for the wait for food, we're working hard to ensure wait times over the busy festive period are as low as possible to ensure all of our guests have an enjoyable time. Sorry that you felt as though the volume for the Saxophonist was too loud. We do hope that despite this you will consider us again, to allow us to show you how great we can be. Thanks, Cosmo's Management

    First time attending but certainly won't be the last. All the staff so very friendly, accommodating, constantly walking around etc. Bronze Drinks package - amazing !!! Saxophonist beyond amazing and a great addition to the evening. Thoroughly enjoyed and will definitely be back after Xmas.

    We were a large party of 16, the maitre de kept us very well informed, and the food and cocktails were served to us as quickly as they could. I should add that the cocktails where no pre mixed like you get in some establishments, and as it was buy one get one free meant they had 32 cocktails to prepare.

    Lovely place and atmosphere this is the second time I’ve had bottomless brunch there and both experiences were the same the food is lovely not a long wait time at all, the staff are lovely when you can catch them but the drinks service is very slow I experienced this both times always a “back log” on drinks just 1 person behind the bar and the staff can’t seem to keep up with the demand. Definitely won’t be having this experience there again but would revisit for just food.
    Cosmo's Cocktail BarResponded on December 10, 2023
    Hi MellissaR, thank you for visiting us again and for leaving your comments. We acknowledge that the wait times for drinks on Saturday was a bit longer than usual. The reason for this is because we create all of our cocktails from scratch with fresh ingredients (no pre-mixes or pre-made cocktails). Some establishments can serve their drinks a bit quicker due to the fact that their cocktails are all pre-made, which we feel can have an impact on the overall quality, which is why we like to create them fresh. We do hope that you'll consider us again in the future, we recommend visiting on a weekday evening where it's a little quieter so we can provide you with a more personal experience. Thanks, Cosmo's Management.

    We ordered the bottomless brunch and the cocktails were lovely but a bit of a limited menu compared to other places. Food was ok, but again quite limited and looked more like a starter. The staff there were lovely, friendly and responsive but they were obviously struggling with staff issues as there weren't many servers. We also had to wait a while before we could order food. Overall we had a nice afternoon but would recommend expanding the menu.
    Cosmo's Cocktail BarResponded on December 10, 2023
    Hi KateR, thank you for visiting us and for leaving your comments. We're really pleased to hear that you enjoyed our cocktails. With regards to the selection, there are 5 alcohol-based cocktails to choose from, along with a wide selection of Spirits, Beers and Prosecco on our Festive Bottomless Brunch menu. There is also an option to upgrade to include all of our Festive Cocktails too. We're sorry that you had a slight wait before being able to order food - we're always looking at ways to be more efficient, so this feedback is really valued to help us to improve our guest experience going forward. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Thanks, Cosmo's Management.

    Negative view • Shambles ! Stay away tbh cold food looked awful, good going back to hot plate as cold and another staff member picking it up and taking it back out to another table couldn’t make it up !! staff member with bad attitude was Karen’s before I suppose. Positive • ABBA tribute was fab, and lovely and Christmasy inside Cosmos but wouldn’t return not value for money at all.

    Hi KarenG, thank you for visiting us and for leaving your feedback. We are sorry that things didn't go quite to plan for you and that you experienced a quality issue with the temperature of your food. We take pride in the excellent quality of food and drink that we serve, so its important to us that when something doesn't go right that we put measures in place to avoid these types of situations in the future. With regards to your comment about returned food being taken to another table, we can assure you that this would not happen. During the event, we served over 108 customers, so our serving pass would've been very busy and it may have appeared this way, but we can assure you that fresh dishes were prepared for all guests. We are however pleased to hear that you enjoyed the entertainment

    There was a live act Abba nights! They were very good. Waited over an hour for starters. Waited about the same time to be asked what we wanted to drink. Second course took nearly 3 hours to come out and it was served cold. Christmas dinner served cold is not the best really. Some of the party members ordered deserts and we ended up cancelling these because by this point it was 10pm and the live act had finished. I know they were very busy but the manager really needs to organise the team to work together. I have no idea what happened to our server. If the service and food improves, I would recommend this place. The atmosphere is really good and the band was very entertaining.

    Hi AntoniaP, thank you for your visit and for your comments. We are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed the entertainment during our Christmas Tribute Party event. We are however sorry about your experience with our food - this is not our usual high standard at all and we are working hard to ensure that this does not happen again in the future. Despite this, we do hope that you'll visit us again soon and we look forward to regaining your confidence and trust. Thanks Cosmo's Management

    It was a fantastic day, the only disappointment was as a party of 8 we were in two separate booths which did spoil our time there — if we had been told we’d be on two separate tables we would’ve gone elsewhere . The staff were very attentive and the drinks kept flowing during our 90 mins bottomless brunch
    Cosmo's Cocktail BarResponded on December 10, 2023
    Hi EmmaR, thank you for your positive comments and we're really pleased to hear that you had a great time. We're sorry to hear that being sat separately on tables next to each other had an impact to your overall experience. We always try to sit parties together on the same table where possible, but this is never guaranteed unless specifically requested and confirmed in advance. We'd love to welcome you back again in the future, so please do reach out to us by phone or e-mail when booking so that we can ensure you are allocated to a table together, as we know how much this means to some of our guests. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Thanks, Cosmo's Management

    The food was pre ordered due to a large booking. It took an hour from arrival to get the food which was either cold or lukewarm. When some was asked to be replaced, it was taken away but returned no warmer. This was not the service staffs fault, the chefs did not seem able to cope with a busy night at the beginning of the Christmas season. The manager was fabulous and all staff were amazing and they tried to compensate for the poor food. We still had a great night and the cocktails were amazing so I look forward to returning when it is not so busy.
