Popped in here for a drink the other night. Two good musicians strangling guitars. Thought it might be worth a shot. Asked one of two barmen for a specific rum and coke. The barman, obviously the junior member of the two, hesitated somewhat while looking...More

Recently visited with friends and spent about 3 hours here!! So relaxed and the staff were so professional and friendly! Had the Ceaser wrap and fries which were delicious and I loved the piece of biscuit cake with our coffee after!

Hi EvieLynch, thank you for the kind words! We're known for our Caesar wraps and chocolate biscuit cake, you ordered well! The biscuit cake with the coffee is just perfect after lunch or dinner. We hope to see you again! Thanks, Statham's Bar & Restaurant

Staying at The Pembroke we popped into Stathams for a quick drink and were very pleasantly surprised at how good the food wine and atmosphere were. Not something you always get in hotel bars.

Simple but beautifully cooked ingredients. I went here with my parents who are 2 chefs and we were really pleased with the quality food. If you're looking for a tasty bite that doesn't have overly complicated ingredients, this is a top spot!
