Girls night

Blue door is fab, perfect for a cosy catch up. We went on a Wednesday and the live music made the night even better. Ross was a great host and we will for sure be back for more cocktails and questionable dance moves.

Service staff were great

They didnt know we were booked. They had no cheeseboard as the other business was close (that provides the cheese) but they did provide once the barman had other staff checking bookings and food etc. The service was great. The barman was very knowledgeable. However, the overall experience was not so good.
