Cocktail Bar
Crafted cocktails and a marble-clad sunken bar beneath the judge's original oak canopy – The Dixon’s Courtroom bar is a cocktail bar like no other.

This old Magistrates’ Courtroom was where petty criminals received their punishment – just take a look at the mugshots on the walls for proof. The original wood panelling remains, and the judge’s bench has been transformed into a bar. It’s a restoration those faces on the walls would approve of.

As well as cocktails, a wide selection of the world’s most revered spirits all vies for your attention. Like the signature Espresso Martini, made with our very own Shakedown Coffee. Brewed just feet from the original jail cells, Shakedown is our own brand of coffee that is selected and roasted by our team of baristas.

Under a 193 spheres chandelier, indulge yourself with our 1905 Magistrates Afternoon Tea experience alongside pictures of ex-convicts framed on the walls watching over you.

    Would say it was alright - a couple of points : * toilets are quite far - it is a bit of an adventure to find them * when the afternoon tea arrived , the waitress didn’t think about moving stuff before to bring it over so was down to me to make space and she placed it in a way and didn’t have access to the food so had to change the disposition * we were asked to pay the bill in the middle of the degustation because they close the till early on Sunday and then advised the closest door will be closed - it felt to me we were being ousted so we left. The staff was nice but the experience could be enhance with avoiding asking to pay the bill in the middle of the experience - it gave us the ick

    They didn’t seem to know about our reservation, and told us we had to leave in one hour. The fries were okay. It was a bit cold in there.

    We went for afternoon tea. When we arrived they did not have an afternoon tea booking. The issue seemed to be that they order in the cake etc.. They decided they could accommodate us. The venue was nice but very quiet and quite depressing. Service was very poor. The food was awful. There was plenty but so bad. It had been around for ages in the fridge, definitely very far from fresh. Only thing any good was a small savoury tart. Scones were ok. Sandwiched rick hard and cold/wet. World not go again.
