“Excellent and friendly bar!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Great little place in a great Old Brighton Street, nice staff and lovely regulars. Would definitely recommend. The owner "Scots Billy" had some great stories to tell and kept us entertained all afternoon sitting out in the Sun.

“Good cocktails, slightly odd atmosphere”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

So, came here on a Groupon voucher for cocktails, and having found it, can confirm that the cocktails are gorgeous.

Drinks menu wasn't vast, but was perfectly large enough, and the staff were lovely and friendly.

The bar itself isn't particularly large, which meant that it felt crowded even with only a few people in there, and when we were there, a few of them had evidently had quite a good day, which made it somewhat 'interesting' (one guy kept reaching between us to charge/use his mobile phone, bizarrely).

It was obviously somewhere where everyone knew each other, which made for a very convivial atmosphere, and made it felt a bit like you'd stumbled into someone's front room. But, by the same token, it also made you feel as though you had just stumbled into someone you didn't know's front room.

Didn't have any food, but the array of sandwiches etc on the blackboard did look pretty good if you wanted to grab a quick bite.
