Was walking past, the bar and sky light caught the eye. Decided to go in for a drink and ended up having lunch. Friendly staff and decent bar food. Glad we dropped in. Decent selection of gin, few beers but not extensive. Would go again

We could have just walked past this place but I saw the bar as I looked in and decided to stop for a drink-which then turned into lunch. Lovely place,atmosphere and good food/drink. I would recommend.
