Having been a customer on many occasions and knowing the faults, awful customer service and extremely hit and miss delivery times. I have always stuck with the place as the food is normally fab, the last time I ordered for delivery they rang and said they'd stopped doing fillet steak, fair enough I though I still got a sirloin, but...

After a nice family wedding we decided to have a meal to finish off the weekend with family up for Liverpool, we did ring up and ask if they were able to take a party or 26 on and they said that would be fine. We were a big family which included 6children, however we did expect to wait a... More

I wish we had read the reviews before we went to the Blue Rare, it would have saved a lot of time and money. We were a group of 26, a family meeting up for sunday lunch. The Blue rare were told it was a large group and accepted the booking without explaining that they are incapable of actually serving... More

Here at Bluerare we believe everyone is entitled to an opinion - therefore, as a rule, we generally don't respond to reviews, good or bad. However, such was the incident on Sunday 2nd April that we have no choice but to address this party directly. You booked in for a last minute table for 26 people at 12:30pm. The final... More

While visiting family we decided to end the visit with a family meal and agreed on the blurare. What a mistake. After waiting for nearly two hours for our food to arrive the management became extremely rude and aggressive towards members of our party, totally uncalled for. We had 6 children with us with the youngest being 2. And thankfully... More

Large party of 24 became a bit frustrated at waiting 1hr 30mins, just to order the food! Management reaction to complaint was disgraceful. Not one apology was offered. We were spoken to extremely abusively, resulting in decision simply to leave. All efforts to reason with management fell on deaf ears, and were met with insulting, condescending remarks. Unbelievably bad customer... More

Realised on a rare Friday evening off that we had no food in the house and no reservations. Not wanting to brave Wetherspoons with their Friday night patrons thought we'd give the delivery service from Bluerare a try. Delivery was less than an hour during what is probably their peak time. Food was hot, always a good start. Steak and... More
