Beautiful food. Steak and the chicken with dates were cooked perfectly and tasted fantastic. Service was friendly and staff knew their menu well to be able to advise with the various gins. Lovely lunch and a clean and relaxed setting

This is a terrific little bar. The selection of guns/mixers is extensive and combined with the friendly, knowledgeable staff giving great advice it’s a winner. Lovely surprise of a complementary tapas frittata - it was delicious. We decided to order from the lighter bite menu...More
