I have been to Barristers before and have enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and extensive beer selection. However, it has never been crowded and I am beginning to see why.
This evening I joined 11 friends at Barrister's and instantly felt unwelcome as they set up a screen next to our table closing off the rest of the restaurant to more patrons. We were given glasses that were fresh out of the dishwasher and very warm for our new beers when frozen glasses were visibly available.
This much I could have easily forgiven but at the end of the night the two remaining bartenders had given an incomplete tab to one of the parties and then accused the remainder of the group of trying to skip out on the bill. As it was later in the evening drinks could only be purchased at the bar and all people in our group had their own separate tabs. We were never on the same tab and thus not responsible for the incomplete check and oversight of the bartenders but according to the bartenders we were.
I have enjoyed this bar in the past but this last experience will keep me from returning or promoting this bar to others.
this is a football (soccer) pub with great beers. BUT THE FOOD IS incredible. 'Not your normal pub grub' is true. the food here is what you would find in a more upscale restaurant at bar price. the portabella and goat cheese sandwich is wonderful.
they have a great variety of cheeses that use in different dishes. they have a whole crust pizza, which i appreciate.
they just 'get it' there. great food and atmosphere without all the bullshit.
