I truly love the concept, being able to select wines from enomatic machines is great fun and doesn’t feel like a gimmick, it really gives you a chance to try new things and more expensive wines that wouldn’t be ordinarily be available by the glass....More

Lovely spot to relax and enjoy a wide range of high quality wine. The dispensing machines mean you can try a sip of several wines before settling on your favourite for a full glass or.....a whole bottle!
