We met up with friends here during the week, the bar was quiet, but it is a great set up, really cool atmosphere and great furniture/ décor! We had some great cocktails here, and brilliant service from Charlie the "geezer"!

Friendly staff with an extensive cocktail list. Walls covered with street art, so if your date is boring the walls will keep you entertained. Some chairs more comfy than others, get there early if you want a table.

There on a Saturday night and found it to be really comfortable, I think we had booked a table, we weren't squashed in like at some places. Not a huge wine selection but you should be able to find something by the glass to drink....More
