Stokesleys first cocktail bar. Imaginative and good value non-alcoholic cocktails (as well as the alcoholic kind) served by friendly, knowledgeable staff.

We had a coffee and an Earl Grey tea in the mid afternoon. Service was good, the tea and coffee were fine and the price reasonable. It is possible to sit outside but we didn't.

A very warm and friendly welcome, great coffee with tasty cheese scones. The owner is adding bicycle stands in the near future. 😎
