We enjoy having a drink in this bar.
The decor is lovely with nice booths.
They take bookings, the food is very good as well.

Been off the island for a long time and so sorry to see this place go downhill. but then Heron and Brearly in Isle of Man are famous for taking a great concept and dropping it in the toilet no matter how well it is doing. I have seen so many of this pub chain's great places go belly up because of their idiotic (or should that be non-existent) management.

The bar is the main thing. There is a good selection of drinks and it all has an up market feel to it.

There are booths along the ground floor - each of which has a bucket for ice built in which is slavishly refilled but rarely used!

There's also some kind of special booth around the corner - which I never worked out what the story was. Upstairs there is more traditional seating.

The food here is ok - I had it a few times and was never massively impressed. However I guess its not the main point of the place - mainly its a place to drink and socialize.

Overall I'd recommend it if you are looking for a classy bar in Douglas. Warning - can get very busy at weekends.

I peeled in for an afternoon bite to eat before a meeting. I couldn't find anything simple on the menu, and decided to just go for the lamb burger on the menu. It was served between two slices of focaccia, which is something that should not be associated with a burger, let alone lamb. This thing was falling apart and was so rich with the flavour of the lamb and focaccia that it made me sick. The decor is great, the service is good, all they need to do now is cleanup the menu.

Used to favour Bar George until it was refurbished, then it all went downhill. Artisan filled that place. Consistently good food, nice wine/beer selection, friendly attentive staff & decent clientele.
Best booking for peak times as it can get busy.
One of the Brewerys best bars, & thats good going for them!
