We called in for a drink in the early evening. It's a typical city centre bar, heaving with crowds of people shouting, trying to make themselves heard. One woman was doing a great impression of a parrot, shrieking over the top. We went upstairs to...More

Mixologists are magic. Clearly really know their stuff, and this is our favourite cocktail by far. Shame it’s never really busy as it deserves to be.

Lovely old building converted to a cosy bar. Food and service excellent. The mixed platter a real pleasure.

Hadn't seen bar previously but liked the look of the roof top bar. We ordered cocktails which wasn't impressed with. Great roof top area, very busy.
