We’ve just spent the evening on a gin tasting session with Joe from 1932. Amazing venue with the most sublime drinks I have ever had. Joe is amazing company with such a wealth of knowledge on different gins. The perfect mixologist. Would highly recommend!

Hi Maria, You don’t have to book a table but we would strongly advise it, particularly in larger groups as we are an intimate venue and get very busy. Rich G Owner
