SquareMeal Review of Old Bengal Bar at The Old Bengal Warehouse



Elegantly tricked out in shades of cardamom, pepper and pimento, this distinguished Grade II-listed edifice was originally an East India Company spice repository. Open for lunch, for sundowners and for bar food, its cocktails might make more of the warehouse's past – not that we're complaining about well-balanced signature mixes such as Aurora (a Diplomatico white rum, Chambord and rose sour) or A Plume of Smoke (a mezcal, pineapple and bitter chocolate pick-me-up). We also approve of the prices: £24, for example, secures a respectable Gascon rosé, ideal for balmy evenings under parasols in a smart walled courtyard. Not surprisingly, spices make a big contribution when it comes to moreish bar snacks such as lamb croquettes with curry sauce, salt-and-pepper squid with aïoli, vegetable samosas with raita or juicy organic Black Angus burgers with blue cheese and black pudding.

Happened to be passing on a Saturday night and decided to pop in for a drink on our way home. Oh dear… Our order comprised two drinks and a bar snack, which shouldn't have been too difficult given the place was near empty. A fair while later, we had almost finished our drinks and the bar snack hadn't arrived. So i called a waitress over to cancel it. Her comment was that it was probably for the best so we could save ourselves for dinner! A little taken aback by our server's outlook, I asked to speak to the manager. The manager seemed to be of the same ilk – I couldn't tell whether it was disinterest or arrogance but, apart from taking the dish off our bill, all we had was excuses and no particular concern for our experience. We asked for the service to be taken off the bill, paid and left. Overall you get the feeling that they are still in soft opening mode, but charging full price. Don't think we'll be going back unless there is a major improvement in attitude. Many better choices in the immediate vicinity where they have already figured out customer service!
