Headed here at the request of our friend for her birthday. First problem for us that there wasn't any signage or indication on the street of where to enter, I don't think it was their fault since there was roadwork but we couldn't find. Once...More

We walked in to this bar and we were told to take a seat and wait for table service. We did this and 10 minutes later we were still sitting there waiting for service! We weren't even given a menu to choose from!

Stopped in for pre dinner drinks. Small, good atmosphere and mixed age groups. Liked it a lot. Also loved the 80's tunes and relaxed vibe. Cocktails seemed expensive but having stuck to beer and spirits we were happy when we settled up the tab. Definitely...More

Visited here for drinks after work recently. Pleasant atmosphere and great staff. Decent wine list and full range of bar drinks. Recommend a visit for something smaller and more intimate in that part of the city.

Ole Sea shanties and a feel for being aboard Captain Hook's style of ship immediately greets you walking in to this somewhat cloistered entry. Once inside, a friendly British chap will likely ensure you are seated with whatever your hearts desire - alcoholic gingerbeer ;...More

We were heading out to a function and wanted a quiet drink beforehand. Our hotel sent us a few doors up the street to Button Bar. Funky interior and your predictable young bar crew greeted us - clearly being in our 40's wasn't the clientele...More

Twice now I have been here and each time it was a delight. The bar staff are all very lovely and if you visit on your own they provide enlightening conversation. The cocktails are intelligent as they are delicious. Nice cosy booths to sit in...More

There's a large array of spirits including barrel's of home spiced rum, singapore sling's and sherry.And if you're just looking for a quick beer/cider, you'll find beers selected from our bartender's favourite local brewery's...
