Called in here for a drink to escape the madness of Bury Christmas Market. The owner kindly opened a few minutes early to allow us in from the cold. We enjoyed several drinks in the end, due to the lovely welcome and the delicious Barolo!!

Visited this wine bar after having dinner and found it to be exactly what we were looking for. Good selection of wines (the malbec was lovely) at decent prices, as well as live music made it a very enjoyable evening.
