Cocktails are amazing

This place never disappoints. We took out friends here on a Friday night out. The bar staff are very professional, look smart, and make amazing cocktails. The decor looks great. This is a place for the ladies to wear a dress and the men to wear trousers and a shirt. The music was great too. Some... read more

Stopped here for a glass of bubbly and a snack before heading home. This is popular with office workers having a cocktail after work. Very hip and fashionable decor - so perhaps not wise to take your granny. The bar snacks are tasty and imaginative, well presented but rather expensive for just a few small mouthfuls perhaps. I would go... More

Nice cocktail and wine bar with basement club. Great to be able to Book a table upstairs before going to get somewhere to sit - didn't eat here but looked a good place to eat and then go the club afterwards.

I have been here a few times and had acceptable meals and nice drinks but on this occasion it was a shocker. We went with a group of 10 people and when booking we were told that we needed to choose from a set menu die to the size of the party. We accepted this even though a group of... More

I returned a few weekends ago for a meal and drinks with a friend. I have to say I have no complaints on this visit. What made the evening for us, was the cute Irish waiter that took great care of us. Darragh (I couldn't forget his name!) is a credit to the venue and his service was genuinely top... More

Went here for lunch. Atmosphere lacked a little and a little too bright, but it was lunch. Menu not great for vegetarians but what I had was tasty. My partner had 1/2 lobster which tasted nice but a little bit messy: I've been to restaurants where they remove the meat and place back it (it's just a preference). We finished... More
