"I haven't used these for drinks yet but instead of just shutting them away in the cupboard they've become a bowl for wrapped retro sweets and lollies and another one for biscuits, may have to order a couple more now for drinks! A friend's seen them and recommended them to her sister to use for sweets in her candy bar at her wedding. Great product and great service."

Paul - South Wales, 3rd July '12
"Bought these for a childrens "mocktail" party. I've made non alcoholic cocktails with pineapple and cranberry juice and the coconut syrup from this site. I added sweets shaped like fish and novelty straws. Looks absoloutely amazing and great fun too! Excellent company to buy from as they deliver promptly and offer brilliant customer service!"
HelenG - Sussex, 18th June '12
"Very good but could be cheaper."
Derek Ronald Greenaway - Bradford, 25th April '12
"We actually bought these for our wedding to use as fish bowls for the children's table as centre pieces! All the bowls we found were glass, but these are perfect, plastic and safe more importantly where kids are concerned!! I am sure they will look great on the tables and the kids will love them! Great item, many thanks!"

Leigh - Portsmouth, 9th April '12
"Went down very well! Good quality and fact that it's plastic doesn't detract from item."
R. Smith - West Mids, 27th February '12
"Good product, good for a party, glad I got it, will be getting another one."
Ste McVey - Liverpool, 4th February '12
"Brilliant way to get the party started....
Great way of getting your cocktails drunk."
Ray Atkins - North Lincs, 18th January '12
"This fish bowl is brilliant. It brings entertainment to a party. You can experiment with different mixtures of drinks, (alcoholic or not). I teamed it up with some long funky straws
to reach the very last sips at the bottom.
When my boyfriend opened it he wondered what it was, he thought he was getting a fish! But after I explained he was so happy with his present."

"We have been using these in our bar as an alternative to pitchers and they have proven to be a real hit! Because they are plastic they are safer for our customers and staff, plus are easily replaced. They look great filled with a cocktail and decorations!"
Steven Blackburn - London, 19th December '11
"These bowls are the perfect party item! I would recommend these to anyone who wants a cost effective and quick way to liven up a party. There's also some glass ones from drinkstuff, but for me, these plastic ones are perfect, easy to replace and cost effective."
Brian - Eye, Peterborough, 4th November '11
"We love these so much and have had such a success with them that we are ordering more!"
Debbie - Leominster, 20th September '11
"To celebrate my friend's 30th I bought a fishbowl and filled it with a miscellaneous cocktail concoction to bring back memories of when we went on our girls' holiday after we finished school. It was the star of the party along with the palm tree straws that I bought to put in it. It does look small but appearances are deceiving and we definitely would not have wanted to dink more than the 3litres that you can get in there.
A great party piece!"

"I ordered these fishbowls for a cocktail night I was holding for friends. They were very amused when I produced the cocktails and were the talk of the party.
They're great value for money and I will definitely order more for future parties. Although I thought they were smaller than I had first imagined, they held plenty (3 litres) and only needed refilling once!"
Sharon Hines - Moffat, 22nd August '11
Little Bit Fishy
"This product unfortunately fails to live up to any expectation. It does indeed hold actually over 3 litres, (some sites/companies advertise as a lower capacity) but these products have too many flaws to be considered a quality product, unfortunately there is little to rival them. The plastic is made from plastic barely sturdier that what you might find in a bottle of squash from a supermarket. This results in a product that can flex when picked up, if full at the time can be disastrous and embarrassing for the host, and guest/customer. There seems to be little care in the manufacturing process, and the mould lines are often very large and unseemly with large 'bobbles' of plastic underneath. Due to this it is hard to see whether it is value for money. The type of plastic means in a commercial premises if they are trod on or dropped/kicked, they don't last too long. A thick acrylic such as remedy or rocks style glasses would be preferable and would in the long run be cost effective. To rub salt into the wound, it is possible to obtain pretty much the same objects, however sturdier plastic, that have screw lids on that hold sweets at many local corner stores. The glass alternative is a much preferred option, if you have well behaved guests or customers and want to make an impression go with glass!"
Steven Philpott - Medway, 29th June '11
Drinkstuff says: Many thanks for your comments Steven, we're sorry that you were disappointed with the Plastic Fish Bowls. They are intended as a low cost party item so are ideally suited as a quick and fun cocktail vessel.
"I have ordered a few things from drinkstuff, all been amazing. The fish bowl comes out all the time at parties, I am going to order a few more, they are great for cocktails and exotic drinks."
Mary Nisbet - Newcastle Upon Tyne, 26th April '11
"When this came we thought it looked too small for the large straws and cocktail we were planning to put inside it BUT it was perfect. Took lots of tequila, vodka and orange juice to fill it and lasted for ages. It's now washed up and ready for the next party!!"
Sheryl - Basildon, 25th April '11
"I bought this for a house party and it was a huge hit! Nothing gets a party going better than 3 litres of cocktail and a dozen straws! Great product and amazing price!"
Nicholas Scott - Birmingham, 9th February '11
"I bought this for my wife and it was a great buy, it is a talking point at parties and stops the wife getting a new drink every 5 minutes.
The glass has a large neck to it so you can decorate drinks with lots of fun stuff and make them look good.
This glass is also good if you are having a kids' party and you can fill it with sweets for their little hands or something that we found fun was making traffic light jellies in the bowl, it looks great and tastes good to!!
A great buy and so many ideas to try still with this glass!
This item was well packed and I received it in excellent condition and delivery was very fast as stated on the website.
I will be using this site again for all my bar and stuff needs!!!"

"Good quality fish bowl great for before going out or at parties and does not slide on the table as much as the glass one."
Nathan Speak - Darwen, 28th October '10
"Love my fishbowls, bought them for my friend's party, can't wait to try them out!! Little smaller than expected but still holds 3 litres!! :) x"

Lynne Douglas - Portadown Co Armagh, 16th April '09
"Fairly good product. I expected it to be in a box but it was just in a plastic bag. It also said the product was out of stock for 10 days but it came 2 days after ordering."
