Gave this a go on a Saturday but we may have been early at 8 as we ended up being the only ones in there as the DJ was setting up. Nice interior albeit a little sparse and limited seating. It may liven up later - waiter may need a lesson on how much kir goes into a Royal. Disappointing... More

Probably ace for clubbing artistic types. Was clean and tidy. Felt a bit empty and boring despite live music. The gallery upstairs is a nice touch if you like that sort of thing. We're 40's and not into art so wouldn't go back ourselves.

this is a little maze, seating downstairs where live music is played, discreet seating dotted around the building for a quieter corner to chat. more sophisticated than local pubs and a chance to dress up
