“The conference was a great success thank you!!

The cocktails went down really well – I think they were even more popular this year too so that was great. The cocktail bar looked really good too.

I would like to pass on a special mention to Calum and Mario – they were both brilliant!!! Calum’s energy and enthusiasm was excellent and Mario with his tricks went down well too! Both guys did a great job so please pass on my thanks to them again.Hopefully, we will be doing the same again next year!”

Hayley Ives - July 2014

“TheBartender website is straightforward and the booking process was really easy. We had a Cuban themed house party last Saturday and we hired a bartender to mix our cocktails, freeing us up to mingle with our guests and enjoy our own party. Andrew, arrived right on time and had everything in order well before the first guests arrived. He even gave us a mini cocktail session to show us how to mix our chosen cocktails. He was brilliant and had prepped everything so well that he was able to mix and serve everyone quickly and with little waiting time, even when everyone seemed to turn up at the same time. This is the first time we have hired a bartender and we went with TheBartender because they offered the best value for money. We would definitely use TheBartender services again. Thank you Jaidine for your help with the booking and an extra big thank you to Andrew for a superb service!”

We have used TheBartender before and will be happy to use them again!”

Richard - July 2011

“thank you so much for all your help with my 40th birthday party. I was keen to have something a bit different from the usual 40th birthday themes and the cocktails, together with Ash and Ricardo’s skills were a great hit with my guests who were unaware that I’d organised it. They must have been suitably impressed as it was the talk of the school playground for the rest of the week! I certainly wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you.”

Amanda - July 2011

“Our bartender Simon was brilliant, he was flexible about us getting involved with making cocktails and he was a brilliant teacher. He made it a really fun, interactive evening with some delicious cocktails (made by him) and some not so delicious cocktails (designed by us!).”

Katie - July 2011

“The bartender’s attitude and organisation at the event was great and a lot of the guests commented about the cocktails. We would definatly use TheBartender again.”

Annabel - April 2011

“I was a bit worried about booking TheBartender as I had just found them online rather than through any recommendation, but I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone, and everyone else.”

Cath - April 2011

“Very impressed with the bartender, Stu. Arrived on time, all set up ready to go for start of the event. Read the group well, not intrusive to the evening early on but then later involving the bride to be making a few cocktails and giving us a lesson in cocktail making! Thoroughly impressed and would highly recommend TheBartender! All the girls commented on how much it made the evening! Will be using you again! Thanks!”

Hannah - April 2011

“Just to say thank you for supplying Ash the barman at such short notice, We were very pleased with him and the service of the company.”

Karen - April 2011

“You were a big hit, very well done, you got it just right.”

Darren - March 2011

“This was Aaron’s first hen party so I can imagine a group full of 20 women must have been intimidating for him (especially after a few cocktails!). Aaron was very polite, arrived early to set up, was an excellent flair bartender and we would certainly recommend using him again in the future!”

Natasha - March 2011

“Thank you so much for organising our fab bartender Ben. He was a total dream! The cocktails were amazing and he was great company, a welcome addition to the party… the girls and I had an amazing time.”

Gemma - January 2011

“Just wanted to email you and say what a fantastic evening we had with John the bartender and our butler in the buff Mikey at the cottage on Saturday.

Sarah - December 2010

“The flair bartender offered to do a show on the dance floor which was brilliant as was his offer to do some magic tricks around the room – again, brilliant!
He was absolutely amazing and interactive with the guests and everyone loved him. The other guy was good too and did a great job with the cocktails which went down a treat. Just a pity that I only managed to get one lychee martini! Guests are still raving about the cocktails today.”

Kay - December 2010

“Nick was outstanding, with a raucous bunch of guests, and a wobbly ‘bar’. He remained professional, calm, efficient and good humoured throughout, and provided an excellent service overall.
The whole experience with your company has been good throughout, communication was excellent, prices reasonable and we would happily recommend you to friends and colleagues in the future.”

Teresa - NYE 2010

“The bartender worked really hard to ensure everybody had the cocktails they wanted without having to wait long (the demand was quite high). Everyone commented on how good he was, how good the mirrored bar looked and what an excellent service it was. Having the cocktail bar and the bartender made the party unforgettable. Thanks very much.”

Antony - November 2010

The service we received was excellent; the bartender was a pleasure to deal with, polite and couldn’t do enough for us. Initially I thought the service was a little pricey but on reflection we all had plenty to drink and for £15 a head all in it was very reasonable. However it was the highlight of the evening for the bride to be and I was very happy with everything – thank you so much for adding to a perfect weekend.

Claire - November 2010

“We had a good time and Russell was interesting, fun and got on with everyone. It was a great start to our evening and everyone enjoyed themselves”
