We eat at Y bar regularly and enjoy the food and drinks here. The menu is well laid out and everything that I've had on the menu is on par with a 5 star destination. The staff are knowledgable and friendly and cannot do enough to make your experience enjoyable. Love this place and we come here weekly 😄😄

I visited this bar last week as I was staying in a nearby hotel. The place looks nice and it was busy in spite of the fact that it was a Monday night. So busy that we only found place to seat indoor which is not ideal for non smokers. Anyhow we chose drinks from the menu and it turns... More

Probably chose the wrong night to go, it was too busy for me, and felt claustrophobic and sweaty. LEft after one drink for somewhere much quieter.

Been here so many times and never had a bad experience ever! Always busy but somehow you are always served in time and the staff are so friendly. The food is a bit hit and miss at times but I only have snacks finger food to accompany my beer. Always keen to take friends there.

We had an after drink time in this place and it felt like a warm Scottish home with all bricks and a middle bar with couches and cocktail tables, the staff were freindly even though they were busy, nice atmosphere and the prices were substantial, Luv the place and will always return with freinds.
