Casual and funky

A great place to sit and chill with mates. Friendly service and a really nice atmosphere. Good too that they have have bottle wine prices for those that just want to share a couple of drinks.. Be sure to enjoy this little jem. A mixed, casual crowd.

Kind of a hipster place, however with a very mixed audience - which is a good thing from my perspective. There were teens, but also rather old guys who just finished their office job. I wouldn't recommend to go there for dinner, since they only offer different snacks. For a bar it's a shame that they don't have any draft... More

Being locals, my friends and I have visited the Pocket Bar on many occasions over the years for cocktails and food. The cocktails are always of a good quality and value, and we love the atmosphere of this lounge. Previously, the food menu has also been of very good value, and the offerings have always been light and very tasty.... More

This is a really nice little bar.....comfortable, a bit quirky with some cool cocktails and a good selection of other drinks. Very professional and friendly staff.

Cocktails here are not cheap but they are amazing. I had the Pocket signature cocktail - yummy! The atmosphere is hip, somewhere to go on a date or for birthday drinks perhaps. Not really the kind of bar you'd choose for a buck's night, but there happened to be the start of a buck's night on the evening we went... More

We visited here in November for a quiet Birthday drink and we found a table on a Friday at 6pm without too much fuss. Unfortunately the drinks did not seem to follow in the same way. We waited at a (not busy) bar to be served as the guy waiting tables did not appear to want to come to our... More
