Cave Austin Review

Cave Austin was probably number 1 in the deep South at one stage last year, but it has dropped dramatically over the last few months. The bar itself is still ultra stylish and the back garden is gorgeous with a mini waterfall, pond and colourful fish sploshing around to the forgotten sound of tranquillity, but the people have moved on.

It's no doubt a temporary thing and as soon as the London chill sets in, the sleek beige basement will regain its misty air of understated style, which it had last summer and the Sarf East will once again have somewhere to dress up for.

“I have only recently moved to Blackheath and my boyfriend stumbled across this bar one afternoon while he was waiting for me. We have since been back in the evenings and for breakfast on Sunday mornings. We both agree that it is a fab place with good music and THE most friendly staff! Would recommend it to everyone!”

“I just cant wait to get to this popular place on a saturday night, I wait impatiently all week especially to get on the dancefloor with all my lovely ladies! The staff are the most helpfull & welcoming people I know who run a place like this, they make me & my friends feel comfortable & welcome, its a relaxing atmosphere amongst mature well groomed people, there is never a dull moment & definitely no trouble. I recently had a birthday party here for 20 people, we were all happy with the quality of service & food. Your here for a good time, and thats what you will get, I had to go to 2 different venues in the last 2 weeks, one being 10 Room in the west end, boy did I have a crap time, Cave Austin is where I like to be! You wont be sorry you went to Cave Austin & Im sure the vast majority of you will come again soon, I have made many friends in this Saturday night Hot Spot & plan to make many more! Special thanks to Nick, Sue (xxx) & Neil. ;-)”

“Back again, since leaving my last message The Cave has just got better & better, Friday nites not so bad now since I had a word with Deek! Still a steady flow of amazing people, you just can not diss this place, the staff are even friendlier & helpful, such as Nick & Sue, my saviours! You are always greeted with a lovely big smile from Sue who keeps an eye on things in the dance area. Come on, you cant get better in Blackheath, or even South London come to think about it, The Venues full of teenie boppers & Deja Vue is full of plastic gangsters, I drive about 8 miles to get to the Cave & its well worth the money in my wallet, & my friends love it too, do yourselfs a favour this summer, get down to Cave Austin, it will be kicking!! I just wish it could stay open till 2am, (Nick?)”

“Used to be really good. It is now rubbish! Atmos = 2/5 abit of a yobs place now and cramped. The toilets are not clean. Slightly over priced....Poor service.”

“You must have visited the cave on a very bad nite! Ive been going every saturday nite for the last year, it is excellent, £5 to go down too the dancefloor-thats cheap, & DJ Kev on a saturday is wicked, he spins great tunes & gets us all up & grooving, drinks arnt too dear either, the atmosphere is excellent, friday nite is crap though, with DJ Deek (The Geek) playing absolute 80's soul crap, I always use to go on fridays also, but not since he's been playing his crap!”

“I went to Cave Austin for Sunday lunch with 2 freinds. The restaurant was half full but the restaurant was unable to cope with 10 covers at the same time. It took 15 minutes to cleat the table and then we were told the chef could not cope with the rush of orders and it would take about 15 minutes for preparation which seemed no issue. The starter was bought to us after an hour and the main course half an hour later. The salmon was raw. We left and refused to pay the bill. The service and attitude were pathetic.”

“I have been here on the odd occasion for a few drinks. The service is completely appauling - when I enquired about hiring the function room, I was answered a series of bad mannored and inappropirate answers including: we won't allow you to invite anyone under 25 to your party?!”
