Was extremely frustrated by the end of the night at the lack of customer interest and clear focus on profits. We were drinking gin and tonics (supposedly) but the tonic they dispensed from the tap tasted of soda. They were told, they replaced two of...More

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,

While we don’t have anything on our menu listed as non alcoholic. We are more than happy to make you an individual mocktail to suit your tastes. As well as our mocktails we also have our range of fruit juices and sodas.
