“Lovely bar, lovely cocktails and lovely staff”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

I have been into this bar a few times now with friends and it's one of the nicest bars I have drank in. The staff are always friendly and helpful, there are a wide variety of cocktails that are mixed beautifully, and the facilities are clean and in good order. Lovely bar to drink in, I highly recommend it.

“Terrible service, terrible toilets, good music.”
Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

Firstly the men's toilets were terrible. There is no mirror. There was no pump on the soap bottle. The urinals were full of chewing gum. The floor was wet. And there was an overwhelming smell of urine.

Further to this, considering the bar was relatively quiet, getting served at the bar was overly tedious. The bar was well staffed, but the girls were too busy chatting to themselves or on their phones to notice people wanting to be served. Both the girls that served me were also incredibly rude, as if they didn't want to take my order at all.

The only redeeming points of my visit were the gent who greeted us who was very polite and the DJ who played house.

“Amazing, bar staff are friendly and make the night.”
Reviewed 21 November 2012

Great place to go in a group for a night out or just after work for a few cocktails. Brilliant atmosphere and amazing staff who will cater to your taste and every need. Good place to go in the week for a wind down and chilled music or weekends for a good blow out.

“Cocktail Making Party Hen Do”
Reviewed 20 November 2012 via mobile

We booked a cocktail making party for a hen do and it was fabulous! There were 14 of us (one pregnant lady, and a variety of ages) and everyone was entertained for the full 3 hours! There was even special cocktails made for the pregnant lady which was really sweet.

For our money we got to make 3 cocktails, had unlimited punch bowls and reception drink, finishing with a shot! Fantastic value!

I would highly recommend this for a birthday, hen party, a works Christmas do or just because ....

Looking for another excuse to go back and do it all over again

Thank you for making our day!
