I bought friends in here for a post-meal drink and night cap. I have been before for my partners 40th birthday for a drink and thought my friends would like it too. I was not wrong!
It is situated opposite gardens, adjacent to the Queens Hotel and it is a splendid building. It oozes class and style which really gives it a niche market in the town as many of the bars are full of people who are fast-paced drinking and booming house music - so it makes a nice change to be in an establishment where it is simply not appealing to them.
We walked through the patio and round the side to be met with a lovely outside seating area complete with patio heaters. We got to the bar and was served in about 5 minutes. The service here is notoriously slow but it was not too bad at 10pm and I am not out for fast paced drinking, I would rather take it easy and enjoy the surroundings and atmosphere. Inside there is seating, I particularly like it at the far end where there is like a snug, a nice place where you can sit and drink and chat with the people you are with. The music was very chilled creating a great atmosphere.
We had no trouble finding a seat outside and sat for our nightcap drinking and happily chatting in very pleasant surroundings.
