Where to start?! Came down from London for the Easter bank holiday weekend JUST in time for happy hour (£3 cocktails!!). Sat outside in the garden area with a group of friends which was lovely, we were given complimentary snacks and served by a lovely waitress who was very polite and bubbly. Later on we moved inside the bar which was very clean and modern. Service inside was just as good - we were served at the end of the bar by two girls who chatted to us throughout our orders, were very fast and knew the Mai Tai menu inside-out. As if this wasn't enough, once we had suitably made our way through all of the menu cocktails we spoke to one of the girls about other cocktails that weren't on the menu and she was able recommend even lovelier cocktails to us! Best Lychee Martini and Elderflower Collins! Overall we are very impressed and we will be back.

“Great happy hour”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

Me and my girlfriends went last night for the first time and loved it. The cocktails were delicious and the service was fantastic. The bar it's self is very trendy and clean. We took advantage of the half price happy hour until 8pm and they even extended it to 9pm. Would definitely go again for pre dinner drinks.

“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.
