They have a very wide ranging cocktail menu, with some unique drinks. We had a great sampling amongst our group, and all really enjoyed them. Extremely expensive and the service was pretentious and indignant. Ruined an otherwise nice night.

I highly recommend The Pourhouse. The design creates a cool and sophisticated atmosphere where it’s busy enough to be interesting but quiet enough to have a conversation. The food was high quality and there was a wide range of drinks. Service was great, our waiter...More

Really sad to say that the food was disappointing. I had fish and chips. The batter on the fish was so tough, not light and crispy. I ended up cutting the batter open and eating the overcooked fish from the middle. I think the whole...More

history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
