The food was great, we had steak and it was cooked just the way we ordered, the crispy chicken wings are great also. Server was good also.

As newish locals we were really disappointed on our first visit to have such a horrendous experience both with the food and the service (see my previous comment in August 2016). Went back a few week later to Deery's for a business dinner (and note no -one should confuse Deery's with the rest of the hotel- I see a lot... More

After dinner at Medley and a round of drinks at the apartment we all went to the Shelter Bar for a drink and a dance. By then we were intoxicated so we got cocktails as you do, the bartender girl seemed to be brand new and didn't know what she was doing but she tried. The place was humming with... More

We recently spent the day at the Shelter Bar - a group of 8 of us - for a late work lunch and a few drinks. We ordered starters (oysters) and when they eventually arrived, the main meals followed directly. One of the waitresses did offer to take back the meals and hold them under the heating lights - yes... More

You cant beat this place for Great Food and Good Old Fashioned Service, The Team at the Story Bridge are exceptional at looking after their customers. Thanks for the great Service.

Our Family enjoyed a Birthday lunch/ get together, and found the food was nice, but part of the service was poor.

Good spot for a drink and a snack. I went with a group of friends and we shared a number of bar snacks. The San Choi Bow with prawns was delicious. They also serve 3 different types of hot chips. They had a terrific selection of drinks. Good music and a fabulous vibe!

Best place for the morning after, to celebrate a success, or when you have made a deal. Or to just make the deal! Great inside and outside, no pressure, great service to the table once you have ordered, and repeat orders so you don't have to line up at the bar again. Love the Story Bridge Hotel and this bar...

Absolutely dreadful. The waitress' didn't know anything on the menu and had to keep walking away to ask other staff for the answers to genuine questions like "how is the fish of the day cooked? Grilled smoked fried??" The meals came out staggered so we had some of our table of just 5 people getting served well behind others. The... More
