My rating for the Oast House is based purely on the atmosphere; there was a lovely relaxed, friendly vibe and the live music was good. This was in stark contrast to the other more upmarket bars in the Spinningfields area, which my friend and I felt were a little on the pretentious side. The bar service was also friendly, albeit a tad slow. What let the experience down slightly however were the cocktails; the mojitos were the worst I've had and tasted like very watered down lime cordial. I'd recommend trying the beers instead and although we didn't order any food, it did look excellent. The outdoor area also looks good and I can imagine this is a great place to spend a relaxed afternoon on a sunny day.
