The worst G&T my friend and I have ever had. The service was even worse. Service was a shambles, will never return.

Myself and my fiance popped in Saturday afternoon. There was a live band playing who opened the stage up for others to have a go. Reasonably priced and great atmosphere. Walking into the bar you forget you're in central London. Would definitely go back!
