“Go on spoil yourself”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Always great service although you pay for it literally. Service charge for waiter service. Great selection of spirits, cocktails with nibbles included. Always a nice atmosphere

“Pretentious at Best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Went to the Merchant for anniversary drinks in the afternoon, 2 couples. Dressed in casual attire, staff made you feel like you were not welcome! Drinks are pricey for what you get, Beer selection is extremely limited. Will spend my money elsewhere!
