Was in town for a night. Booked here and mentioned in the booking that it was our anniversary. The staff was very kind and welcoming and even gave us free celebratory shots for our anniversary. Service was quick and efficient. Drinks are reasonably priced!

As always a warm welcome, delicious cocktails, relaxing and just the perfect place for a catch up with friends. Elvis and the team never let us down. Can’t recommend this place highly enough

Lovely bar, booked for dinner but realised when we arrived that they don’t sell food (not sure whether they normally do but don’t at the moment because of COVID-19). Despite this it was a lovely bar, COVID safe, drinks were great and the service was just as good. Would definitely go back!

If you’re looking for a great cocktail bar that’s tucked away. This is the one. Drinks were amazing

Clearly set up for students and young drinkers, stag and hens, rather than the more mature crowd. Cocktails were not well made (the 2 we had should have been easy for even basic cocktail mixologist). The staff were friendly and tried their best. Felt like the drinkers ruled this roost which didn’t make for a safe and enjoyable start to the evening. Girl wearing flip flops repeatedly refused entry by the manager but was sneaked back in by her mates and the manager lost control of the situation. We left soon after.
