Merchant City’s best bar. Incredible selection of world beers. New guest beers every week. Einstok is my fave bottle. Fantastic staff. Well worth a visit.

It is as you’d expect a place that sells beer that has the feel of a cafe. Great selection of beers, nice staff and just generally had a nice feel about the place. Defo be back at some point.

Been a few times, and the beer selection always peaks my interest with tasty beverages. Ciaran and Noah, the two bartenders, did a great job of helping me navigate the second round that I got for my friend.

Very unpretentious from the outside, stylish bar inside. Great place to sit outside and look into the Merchant Square. Basic food but great pie with real mash and peas. Very friendly staff.
