We stopped off for a drink and found the bar staff very friendly and helpful. Good place to catch your breath while in Bath. Food seemed well presented, we didn't eat but watched others enjoy themselves. They made a good Cosmopolitan though!

Went here for cocktails only. Venue is great. The staff are friendly and happy to discuss types of cocktails available. Overall drinks were good and reasonable price. Only gripe was the fairly limited choice on the menu. Won't find a singapore sling, long island iced tea or mojito here. Venue was great. There was a couple of hen parties passing... More

Called in here before dinner elsewhere on a Saturday night, so managed to get the place whilst it was fairly quiet. Chanced upon their 2 for 1 cocktail happy hour. Tried 3 different ones altogether and would heartily recommend the place - the cocktails certainly had plenty of kick !. Good job it was quiet as the last two took... More

We popped in for lunch as the Menu looked lovely. We ordered a selection of small/started portions and a couple of salads, nothing complicated. Pretty much everything we ordered came out wrong, either the wrong size or the wrong dish. One of the dishes was due to be served with guacamole, something else came instead so I questioned the server... More

I organised for a group of 11 of us to go to the cocktail making classes at Central Bar last Saturday. They were very accommodating to the pregnant ladies in our group and very generous with the alcohol measures for the bride. They even brought out some 'Truth or Dare' cards which certainly created a lot of entertainment for us... More

We came here for the 2 for 1 cocktails with a Hen Party. Although by the time we got there the cocktails were limited but there was still something for everyone. The music was great and we stayed dancing and drinking until they closed at 2am. Busy but not over-crowded. We also did a rendition of a Bollywood dance we'd... More
