Wonderful place to stop for a drink. The interior is beautiful, styled on a bygone error and if its a sunny day sit outside and enjoy the warmth. The drinks menu has plenty of offerings and the staff are friendly and helpful.

We loved this quaint but not kitsch bar and its excellent staff. We had a pre-dinner drink one night and returned to dine there the following night. Terrific atmosphere. A great place to relax at the end of the day.
