I was invited to Bistro Live by a friend on Friday 30th after she won 10 free tickets- I'd never been before but heard a lot about it. The drinks were good and fairly priced- I had a pitcher of cocktail in the "lightweight" blend and it came to under £16 which was good, I thought. The food was free and came as part of the free prize, 3 courses which are tasty but HUGE portions (I didn't realise we were eating so ate before arriving, sadly I couldn't finish it all), the music quiz was fun and then the party started, the tables were cleared and then everyone just got up and started dancing on them which I found very bizarre because whenever I have danced on tables before I have been thrown out by the bouncers (lol) but it was great and we had a real laugh. The staff all got involved and got on the tables, stage and chairs which was good to see. The DJ played music on request which had a big mixture some of which I didn't know but still enjoyed dancing the night away. The drinks situation was something I found difficult- you wave a flag and someone comes running to take your order, I don't know call me old fashioned but I just felt a bit rude doing this but I couldn't find a bar, the drinks followed very quickly after. Overall a great night, in great company and a I would definitely come back and recommend. Thank you!

Another fab night at Bistro live for our Headteacher's special birthday.I think the food is excellent at this venue and served very quickly, 28 people in my party and nobody was kept waiting! Lovely staff who can't do enough for you.
We enjoyed the quiz and loved dancing on the stage and tables! We will look forward to returning at a later date.
