Food - Wonderful! Ambience - Wonderful! Staff - Wonderful! I would highly recommend you try Diva Bar and Bistro. We were celebrating a significant day in our marriage and we could have just gone somewhere we knew, but we decided to try Diva's and I'm so glad we did. Top marks to the chef also, the menu options were delicious. To the owners - The renovations look great. We will go again soon.

Diva's gave us a lovely experience. With the waiting staff greeting us warmly, and giving great service throughout the evening. They were welcoming of children, giving the option of children's menu.
The meal was beautifully presented and huge!!!
Lovely cuts of meat, and perfectly cooked.
Particularly enjoyed the beef cheeks. For dessert I would highly recommend the affogato.
Great ambience and nice and warm, on a cold winter's evening.
Highly recommend.
Thank you for being part of First Table, Divas Bar and Bistro!!

A group of four of us dined at Diva last evening.
It was a hot night but the restaurant was pleasantly cool.
We all chose different seafood dishes and they were delicious.
Lemon meringue pie and cheesecake were the chosen desserts and they too were delicious.
The service was pleasant and attentive.
Altogether a very enjoyable experience.

First class meal and service highly recommend Diva for an enjoyable meal.

Our group of four had a wonderful evening at Diva. The new decor makes for a more open and light space and, with the gentle music, better for conversation. The mains were great - Moroccan chicken, fish and chips, and beef cheek, and the Eton mess was an impressive dessert. Service was excellent too. We loved it, and we'll be back.

My daughter and myself enjoyed our dinner out at Diva's. The food was lovely and well presented. The staff were friendly and accommodating. We started with the pork sliders which were delicious then my daughter had the beef cheek and I had the slow cooked lamb shoulder which we both enjoyed.

The menu changed since I made the booking. With fewer options and variety. The food was nicely presented however I was very disappointed with a small portion. The waiting staff were very pleasant. The setting was lovely.

Dined here mid-week. It wasn't crowded. A very comfortable setting with a warm welcome. Family friendly for kids too. As a bigger person I had no probs moving around tables and chairs are safe lol. Could be tight though in some areas so just ask on booking for somewhere "cosy". We all had something different to try for entrees, mains and desserts but the must-trys were the Mushroom Risotto crumbed ball thingys... yuuum! The hot cheesy garlic bread and pork baby back ribs. Dish of the night though - Beef Cheeks!!! Flavoursome and cooked so succulently, it just pulled apart. Dessert wasn't necessary as we were already satisfied... but we did it anyway and went for ice cream and mousse, something we could have made at home vs affogato and tiramisu which I wish I had tried now. Final mention to our host waiter. He was absolutely lovely and patient with us. His service was professional and polite. Thanks for making our night great :) Definitely a great place to dine and we'll be back again.

Food and service very good very pleasing staff. But felt the menu could have had a wider selection like stake, and vegetarian.

What a fantastic experience! From the moment we were greeted we received warm, friendly and down to earth service which couldn't be faulted. Food came in a timely manner, we ordered a platter and everything was de-lish! Dessert was really generously sized also. Thank you for a great time!

We took our American friends to Diva last evening.
We each had a different dish and found them all delicious.
Very pleasant quietish atmosphere . Easy to hear the conversation

We had a lovely meal at Diva's and the service was excellent. I thought that the dinner menu was a bit limited but what we ended up choosing was beautifully presented and of a high standard.

Main was lamb rump with halloumi and gnocchi and it was delicious. Dessert was mousse and it was average. It was supposed to come with moccachino icecream but it was replaced without letting us know (with coconut icecream).
