Next time we go we will go a bit later in the evening. We think with the lighting in there it will look even better. We would also go on a Friday or Saturday night so I could try some of their amazing sounding cocktails. The food look as good as it tasted.

The venue is fantastic. It was the old library, and the high ceilings and beautiful tables and chairs make it a lovely destination. The food was nice, but they have a special groupon menu. I would much prefer to eat off the main menu paying a supplement where necessary. For the first half of the evening we were the only people in there so there was not much ambience.

First when I tried to book they took the booking.when I told them it was Groupon they said they had a big party in so they were not taking Groupon bookings that night.I rang back and said I would ring Groupon they took my booking.When we got there we were the only 4 people there.It got about quarter full all night.I think we're treated like second class citizens as we had booked through Groupon I don't think I would book another meal though Groupon.The four of us eat out most weekends.but we won't be going back to Memoirs.Barry Til

Memoirs is a beautiful building. the chairs are very comfortable and there's a good space between the tables. On the night we went they were very quiet which was a shame for the restaurant. The staff were very welcoming and friendly throughout the meal and the food was superb. There were 4 of us and no one could fault a thing. The groupon deal was also very good. I would definitely go back. Thanks Memoirs x
