We had a glass of wine here pre-dinner. Love the classic old furniture! Friendly barman; not many customers at that time of evening. We sat in the alcove area which was toasty warm even on a bitter winter's evening.

Felt drawn to this as the name & previous reviews promised a good cocktail bar. The balcony had a toppled over umbrella & the whole place needed a good clean. No fruit or other garnishes in the cocktails when they eventually arrived. Very disapponted.
