“Best go early”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

I'm not one for queues, so as a local, I was happy to lob up at a non-hop time of 5:30, where I was greeted in a friendly fashion, served two amazing cocktails and spent a nice chatty hour or so indulging.

No food, unless you want beef jerky, but great to hang in for a bit.

Strictly hipster crowd, but they are not snobby.

“Stylish but not pretentious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

What a surprise to find what was once my local butcher is now a very stylish bar. Efficient and friendly staff, a good range of beer, cider and cocktails made this place and ideal start to the evening.
