Stylish boozer. Amazing selections of the rum. A little pricey but a nice environment to have a drink in. Close to the cinema.

Popped in this evening for a drink, served by a lovely lady and had a pint of revellers cider. It was quiet- but still a few peeps in drinking. Nice atmosphere to be able to chat in. Thank you.

Popped in here for a drink on Saturday night, first time I've been here and found it well laid out with plenty of tables tucked away for privacy, nicely decorated and good choice of drinks.
