The transition from restaurant to night club is a smooth transition, the night club being the better of the two.

Although the dance floor is small, and the bar over crowded at times (this is normal down at Gunwharf) the prices are reasonable and atmosphere inviting.

Afternoon cocktails are really enjoyable on a sunny weekend where you can sit back, relax, and watch the world go by.

Tried Bar 38 for Sunday lunch. A lovely setting but the food was very disappointing. The sirloin steak on the surf 'n turf was gristly and stringy and the 'surf' consisted of a few pieces of scampi which were mainly breadcrumb coating with little filling. Worst of all were the toilets which smelled really badly, both ladies and gents, and really spoiled our enjoyment of the meal. Could imagine this would be a good venue for an evening's drinking session but not recommended for eating.

Great staff, very knowledgeable, very lively bar, they were accommodating to my Mum who was in her wheelchair and the barman made great Harvey Wallbangers :-)
