    A wonderful bar with great music, ambiance and expertly-mixed cocktails. Joe and Daniel have pulled another blinder. A real treasure.

    Located in a parallel universe from the madness of Market Street. My favourite bar, if I’m not in the vicinity of Schofields 😉

    We didn’t eat so can’t comment on food. The music was just too loud. G&T was average - expected better!

    The cocktails are great, but it tries too hard to be something. I expected a relaxed cocktail bar to enjoy some early (8pm) Saturday night drinks not continual whooping and clapping after the piano-man finished each song. Also the barman having a football clacker does not make it a relaxing experience, if I wanted to go to a football match to pay £15 a cocktail I would have booked the Tunnel Club at Man City.
