“Great evening, slightly expensive ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Visited twice, both times we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Great for a quiet drink but also does a really nice range of cheese and charcuterie boards to nibble on. Staff were really pleasant and helpful. And what can we say about the chocolate and orange brownie? Absolutely divine!

“Good wine and light bites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Went here on a day we had eaten a largish lunch and was perfect. Great couple of bottle of wines and a good mix of meats and cheese. Not busy, could be noisy if it was.

“Underwhelming”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

The great appearance from the outside is soon ruined by the disinterested and lax staff. It's at best a cafe, bar and at worst an overpriced attempt at Tapas.

“Expensive but Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

We had an evening of drinks and a cheese board for our anniversary here after visiting Jintana(?) Thai restaurant over the road. The staff were fabulous.. very friendly and I have to say that apart from the Roederer Champagne being pretty cheap at £40 per bottle.. the 'ordinary' drinks seemed perhaps a little pricey. The cheese board was ok at around £12.. however it was a brilliant chilled out evening and we loved it. One tip for the owners though.. we were plagued by vinegar flies that are attracted by the wine.. maybe keep the door closed and add air-con or something. All in all a fab experience. Well done staff - keep up the good work ;-)

We ordered a sellection of cheeses and meats to enjoy over a bottle of wine. It was a pleasant experience . Staff very help full and explained the wine and food mix. A great way to spend an hour or 2
