Slow service, overly priced drinks, we witnessed people leaving after waiting so long for a drink .. this is what we should have done. Nothing to redeem itself

We visited for a few cocktails on a Friday night before heading to the cinema. It’s been an amazing summer so far, so of course everyone was outside. We were expecting table service, but it never happened, but the bar inside was practically empty and...More
