By far he best place in Scunthorpe. The town has been crying out for a quality, sophisticated place to drink.

What a lovely little place. Good range of beers, and the meat platter was well thought out and very tasty. Spoke to the guy who owned the place, and his enthusiasm and knowledge gave me great confidence in the future of this place. It needs to be more widely known.

Myself and my husband went out for a ‘date’ night. Lovely atmosphere, very relaxing and comfortable. We had a food platter to share - which was gorgeous. I was driving but there was still plenty of choice of non-alcoholic drinks - from coffee and non-alcoholic cocktails to amazing strawberry lemonade! My husband loved the choice of beers and gins - finishing off with a whiskey on the rocks. The service was great and we felt incredibly covid safe. What a fabulous place to go to - we will definitely return

Amazing feel and ambiance with staff who were extremely friendly and applied themselves well. The cocktails were delicious. As a recommendation to move forward more food needs to be on offer and possibly deals on cocktails or features such as; cocktail trees.
Thank you.
I will be returning for sure.

Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. We had cocktails and coffee. The cocktails are amazing - made very skilfully and taste gorgeous - my favourite was the Henry’s by 10 - bringing back memories of my youth spent at Henry Africas, a rich, creamy fruity taste. Love the way the cocktails are linked to Scunthorpe. The coffee is gorgeous - a great roast from Sheffield - very tasty.
What a great place to spend an evening with friends, drinking, talking and relaxing. We will definitely be back.

Lovely addition to the town. Great for the slightly older market. It is a touch on the expensive side. I’d like to see cocktails around the £6-£6.50 mark to make it more accessible regularly than a special occasion.

perfect place to go for a small get together, the place looks amazing has a great atmosphere and feel to it. Cant' say enough about their non alcoholic drinks the minted was gorgeous great to finally see a pub cater to those that don't drink but still want to go out with their friends that do.

Would have preferred a longer list of cocktails, I personally prefer creamy cocktails. Was recommended Golden Wonder as it has white cream in it, was nice but didn’t find it creamy at all.

Hi Eleanor. We believe in quality over quantity and we wanted to have a menu based on exactly that. If you let us know which drinks you would perhaps like to see on the menu in the future then please send us a message and we can look at making this for you.

PaigeR that's a lovely review thank you very much. We've tried to make a really cool, calm and relaxing atmosphere but inevitably we will always have a few who want to try and ruin it so we will always do our best to move them on.

There was little social distancing. Tables were spaced out but the table of 2 next to us was less than a Meyer away which made me uncomfortable. The value of the drinks to there size/ quality was poor. The cheapest cocktail was £8.50 and was a half measure in a glass. I found the drinks to be well overpriced and the atmosphere in the bar was poor. Would not be rushing back, especially with the prices so high. And to say there is another cocktail bar 30ft away which is cheap compared to here and better quality/ value for money.

Hi, I'm actually gutted to hear you didn't enjoy your visit to our venue. We've done our utmost to ensure tables are a minimum of 2 meters apart or are not facing one another.. with regards to a cocktail being a half measure in a glass? The minimum amount of liquid in one of our cocktail is 150ml, which is technically 6 measures. We also use freshly bought fruit and veg every day in our drinks and only use non commercial brands for our cocktails. Sorry that you didn't enjoy it.
