Absolutely unbelievable and delivered by an old pro. He knows exactly what he is doing. Don't be fooled......... He has a wide range of skills. For the cost of a tip and a drink you feel privileged to be entertained in an intimate bar setting.

even though this unusual old bar only has a shared toilet it is well worth a visit, traditional English interior good selection of drinks and lots of different bottled ciders, one small room although it does has a music celler bar open in the evenings.

First of all, the bar offers a 2-4-1 deal cocktails on Thursday and they taste great. I was very sceptical of the magic at first and tried to "control" the magician to see his "mistakes", but I have to admit it was amazing and the...More

This is a great venue for real close-up magic. There is a pleasant atmosphere and the magic is of a high quality.

Whilst I can't remember the menu off by heart I'm fairly certain they do but the staff are nice and I'm sure they'd whip you up something specific to your tastes should you ask :)
