Fantastic service, great food ,very relaxed atmosphere, would recommend this pub
Excellent service, really tasty food and lovely cocktails had by all 4 diners
Very impressed. 150 gins to choose from and some unusual cocktails. Wasn’t expecting much from the food but it was really really good. Service was great and a we had a fantastic evening. A little noisy for our taste but then again it was busy and we are probably not the normal age bracket (60+) for here but hey you only live once. Again the food was exceptional and well worth the money
First to arrive for the evening. Table was ready and servers very friendly. Food was very tasty. Enjoyable experience with good music playing.
This was our second visit - this time with two friends that we had extolled the virtues of this place to. Unfortunately, it was early on a Saturday evening and we hadn't accounted for the popularity of the place on a Saturday evening. There were 'bouncers' on the door and quite a large number of people inside. However, our table reservation through Quandoo was confirmed and our table awaited. The meal, as on our previous visit was wonderful. The meals advertised on their 'Specials' board are far more exotic than the ones listed in their Menu and our experience is that they do not disappoint. Again we had the fish - mine was the hake and my wife and our friends had the sea bass. All agreed the meals were very tasty and excellent value. The bill for all of our meals and drinks was 84 GBP which is excellent value - but more than that -the quality of the meals and service were superb. The only distraction from our eating experience was the noise level in the place. Our first visit was late afternoon during the week and the place was not that busy. This time there were lots of well-dressed people in their 30's who, collectively, made a lot of noise! The conversion from the former bank preserved the high ceilings and parquet floors and this must have contributed to the poor acoustics. Speaking to our friends across the table or to the waitress was extremely difficult.
The food was excellent, the choice of drinks was amazing, and the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff was even more so. The only down side to The Counting House was that it was uncomfortably warm in the restaurant part, due to it having fans in the bar area, but not the restaurant, and the lack of natural ventilation made dinner uncomfortable. Other than that (which at any other time of the year wouldn’t have been a problem), it was an excellent experience that we would recommend.
What a fabulous place and meal. The staff were welcoming, friendly and obliging (giving the perfect balance between care and space), while the food and drinks were simply superb. The afternoon tea was immense. Three layers of around the world delights, and more than enough choice! From minestrone and nachos, to croissants, pavlovas and scones, the food was well prepared, presented and tasted fantastic. It was certainly worth the price. The cocktails, too, were very good. They had a great selection and the staff knew exactly what they were doing! I would recommend that everyone come and eat (or just pop in for a drink) here. The atmosphere is so relaxed, and the quality of the dining experience is one of the best I’ve had in a long time.
On recommendations from friends I decided to book the Counting House for my partner's birthday dinner, but, as it was our first ever visit, we weren't sure what to expect. From entering the building and being immediately impressed by the sophisticated decor, to leaving happy, slightly tipsy and full of quality food our experience was 10/10 from start to finish! The half portion of pizza was still a very impressive size (the pineapple relish was to die for!), the cocktails were intriguing and delicious in equal measure and the two staff on duty were attentive and friendly throughout. We'll be back!
It was a Christmas present for my sister and brother in law they moved to France and my sister has stayed in the UK to help me look after my mum who has cancer so I decided a date night for them both. They had a lovely time and the food was great and reasonably priced too they will both be there again as will I thankyou for making it a great experience for them both
I was fairly disappointed with our experience at the Counting House. Firstly, the soft drinks were not of a good standard. They either tasted watered down or they’re supplier isn’t very good. We sent the first drink back and explained we thought the pump may need changing but when the second was also of the same taste we assumed it must by the ‘norm’. The starter was lovely but the main was of a very low average standard. The table next to us was being occupied by customers who were not dining and only drinking. One of them was incredibly loud and fowl mouthed. Me and partner were unable to hear each other speak. Other non dining customers who knew the occupants of the table next to us continued to stagger over from the bar area and join their low mannered conversation. They had clearly consumed a lot of alcohol. Fortunately, a waitress did explain that the dining area was reserved for customers who were eating and asked them to move over to the bar area, which they did. This did enable us to continue our meal in peace. It just was an overall not a great experience in terms of food, drink and customers.
