    Really enjoyed the event last night. Special thank you to Courtney who manned the bar single handed. Was attentive and even knew the orders before we asked. Was nice to see a friendly face from all the bar staff. Keep up the good work. Will def be back again.

    Nice place to go and catch up with some friends for some drinks and having seating inside and out is a bonus!

    Me and my wife had decided to host our wedding reception at this venue months ago and held the party last night... to say the staff, managers and everyone else involved in the company went above and beyond the expectations is an understatement, every single bartender wouldn’t stop smiling all day and were so polite and understanding to guests, even the guests with disabilities. The manager Lawrence was absolutely outstanding, ran round like a headless chicken to make sure everything was perfect and he definitely made it that way and again he never stopped smiling and nothing was ever too much for him to do, or even the staff for that matter. Me and my new wife honestly can not express enough how great full we are for what they have done for us and a 5* rating is definitely not enough and deserve more! We will definitely be hosting party’s here again and will forever be a big part of our special day and we can not thank you all enough.

    Sunday Roast at The Social is damn near perfect. Great for vegan and vegetarian options too. We go frequently and as it’s dog friendly can enjoy a meal with the whole family! Also the tequila selection ... thank me later

    Came in with a friend for a few drinks and left with two more! The staff members Bruce and Anna were so lovely and made us feel like part of the family! Amazing casual bar for a drink in Soton

    We hired the top floor for our staff xmas party and had an absolute blast. It's a great blank canvas to decorate and use for whatever kind of event you want, and the staff were very helpful and happy to support us. Buffet was delicious and great range of drinks available!

    I love this venue!!! The cocktails are incredible! unlike places like turtle bay they are made with decent quality spirits. I visit often to see what beer they have on and what guest craft lager they have in, safe to say I'm never disappointed.

    A very popular bar in Bedford place. Here you can play pool, watch sport, or dance to the dj all at once. The drinks were expensive a red wine and a lager was £10.30.

    The social do the best Mac'n'cheese! This is a great meeting place for me and my pals, with 2-4-1 cocktails and games of pool you cant really go wrong. I love the rustic industrial decor, simple and chilled. Casual or planned, Social is always our first port of call.

    Friend hired a private room for a birthday. Plenty of staff on the bar, reasonably priced drinks (especially for a Saturday night in Southampton). Toilets were really dark, struggled to see!

    This is very much a student bar - not a restaurant. Booths that have clearly had plenty drink spilt on them on booze fuelled weekends. That said, if you visit knowing this and go for some food you will be pleasantly surprised. My wife went and both had a chicken and waffle dish and we were both very impressed. It was a Tuesday night so very quiet but that wasn’t an issue. Very well priced and very nice. Happy hour was an added bonus! Will go back but would recommend avoiding a Thursday / Friday / Saturday night as I imagine you may feel a little out of place if looking for a more restaurant type feel. Will be back.

    The social staff welcome you with open arms and smiling faces! The drink menu is of an impeccable variety, offering some tasty cocktails. But the food, oh the food. Whoever is in the kitchen is a genius and will certainly get my custom again and again. The quality of the food and how it’s put together is amazing and will definitely get your taste buds going! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Came to the social on a casual business lunch. The food was amazing (if going, you must try the Hal fries! Incredible). Great job to the chef and team! 🤙🏻🤙🏻

    Visited for the first time on Friday, loved the venue, the music being played and was particularly impressed by the great customer service. I was curious about having a few cocktails and was swiftly seen to and informed about a 2 for 1 deal for cocktails on Friday's. So I ordered two delicious "donkey punches" made by the very helpful barmaid mia. Thanks and I'll be back again.
