“Lovely bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

This is a lovely place to sit with a drink - good value cocktails! We wished that we'd booked a table to eat too.

“Brilliant Champagne Afternoon Tea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Visited this Bar/restaurant with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. We had the Afternoon Tea with a glass of Champagne deal which only cost £15 each and was really good. The Afternoon Tea consisted of a variety of sandwiches and warm Scones with fresh cream, swilled down with tea/coffee and a glass of Champagne - really good value. After we enjoyed a few Champagne Cocktails served by very efficient and pleasant members of staff - would recommend this Bar to others

Only ever been here for pre or after dinner drinks but we really enjoy the ambiance of the establishment. Quality products and really good service. Staff are always polite and very helpful.

“I wish people enjoyed their job...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Our party of three arrived on a Sunday afternoon to enjoy a drink on the terrace. We approached the bar and greeted with most lack luster approach to saying hi to another human. My girlfriend ordered an espresso but they found it hard she wanted a coffee not a espresso martini. We ordered 2 natural daiquri as they only had butter scotch ones on the menu. We request it be made with mount gay rum and it seemed to be a bit of a issue. Through the construction of the drink we were addressed as 'they' . They ended up having to use a different rum but decided not to tell us. The cocktail was made to the manner I would expect of someone's first day. What was really upsetting was the barely audible thank you as we walked away. At no point did anyway smile, be warm and acted as if this was a just another day at prison. We have between us over 17 years working in bars and restaurant.
