Visited this wine bar on a busy saturday night, they had a band which was very good but when i ordered a gin & tonic they had no ice, also the beer was warm, not a very good sign but the band was cool, don't think i'll return and the decor could do with an update also

Very good selection of beers at very reasonable prices. Clean and open with small alcoves for those intimate little chats. Large space outside on the green if you wish to drink alfresco
