We came here with a gaggle of guests after our wedding back in Sept 2015. It was perfect for what we needed before our evening do at a different venue. Our guests were relaxed and comfortable and stayed on whilst we moved onto the evening...More

Started as a brilliant evening, but went swiftly downhill at Set the Bar. Prosecco on tap is a lovely touch, although the single cocktail we ordered was poor. We asked about food but sadly they stopped serving by that time. Unknown to us, it was...More

Vikki, no we didn’t have any Wrexham lager on draught, but we had plenty of other things available. After Daisy told you that we didn’t have any, you didn’t attempt to order anything else, but instead walked off without responding to her and started speaking...More

I have to start by noting that this is the most comprehensive vegan menu for miles around. From my experience there is not another venue offering such choice without going to maybe Liverpool or Manchester. No, the menu is not exclusively vegan but I personally...More

Lovely indie bar with some delicious options, mostly with a vegan base and the option to add meat/cheese if liked. The food is good value and not too big. There was live music on which was very enjoyable and the venue is staffed by some...More
