5 reviews of Ha Ha Bar in English
Despite its being a chain and in the gun crime capital of the UK (poor old Nottingham), the Ha Ha Bar didn't fail to please when I went here for a Christmas do.
The decor is really welcoming, lots of nice dark wood, lovely ceilings and fantastic lighting. The ambience is very couth, very growns up.
The wine list is very nice, and includes some nice surprising varieties, including a very nice Sauvignon with pear and apricot flavours. Yum yum.
The service at the bar is efficient but casual, no over-keen "hey guys!" bartenders here. There is always a pretty great crowd here, lots going on, mostly an in-city working crowd after work for a drink or some food with friends.
Once we were seated and given menus, we found a nice selection of dependable food without anything flashy or worrying. When the seabass and chicken mains arrived, they were well cooked, with flaky tender fish and non-stringy, moist chicken. The sides and starters were also nice.
We skipped dessert as we were stuffed full, and opted for more wine, both bottles of which suited everyone's tastes and were respectively mellow and crisp.
The kitchen service was fast, but not worryingly so, and the manager, who brought our food over, was a very friendly and chatty fellow.
Definitely an easy choice if you're not looking for a bespoke dining experience, but a welcoming, low-key place in Nottingham
Lovely atmosphere here. I like the waitress service for food. But is a bit pricey. Food tastes lovely and when it is not too busy service is good. Seem to have good quality drinks and food that they use. Near tram stop, which is convenient. I prefer it in the daytime/early evening as at night it is a bit like every other pub.
The negative point about the menu is that there are not enough vegetarian options (there is usually about 1 or two on a huge menu). I have a vegetarian friend who would eat here if there was more choice.
I went to the ha ha bar last night! It was quite modern inside and the staff were very nice! The meals were about £8-12 ish, so not too bad for nottingham! I had the 8oz steak and it was excellent, but i know people who had the chicken breast and it was massive! Overall, I think its an excellent bar/restaurant!
We went in here at around 10.30pm on a Saturday night and it was packed out. The music was loud and thumping although I did just about manage to have a conversation.
The service was pretty fast at the bar so you don’t have to wait long although the drinks are quite expensive.
There was no spare seats or tables at the front of the bar and it was pretty busy with lots of people standing around, we did find a table to sit at the back near the stairs that lead down to the toilets.
One thing I did like was that there was a wide age range of clientèle not just young uns out on the razz, Oh and the doors are very wide which means it is accessible for wheelchairs to get in and out.
