The positives are an incredibly easy and efficient online booking function, welcoming & attentive service and excellent food in a pleasant dining area.
Only a few negatives- the chips were à la McDonalds and the main course (filet steak) rather overpriced with no veg either.
High spot was fabulous calamari starter.
I would certainly go back.

Cocktail bar and restaurant close to city centre - did not eat in here but drinks were an experience. Cocktail menu is extensive and are served in a variety of chemical experiment containers instead of usual glasses. Long island iced tea was also served with bits of dry ice which was strange. All cocktails are about £7 which is usual. Very popular place well worth a visit

We nipped in here on route to an engagement, the bar is well designed, the atmosphere is good and the service swift. We were made to feel welcome by the host and found the place extremely comfortable.

Great buzzing bar , amazing cocktails that live up to the bars name . Some looked like they were created in a Harry Potter movie with flames , dry ice and all other concoctions . Not too expensive either ,good fun .
