Now under new management and rebranded 38 - top wine list, great food and chilled atmosphere. Great staff and a bonus to have outside space on a summer’s evening Get there early as it’s popular with the locals!

Nice place to have a glass of wine on a Friday night, white wine selection was quite good and only really stopped for the one drink. Enjoyed the drink and the experience was very good.

Situated in side road. Very pleasant and welcoming ambiance. Attractive and quiet lounge at the back. Wide range of wines and coffees. All in all a very unusual place well worth a visit.

A very nice place for a Sunday afternoon coffee or a Friday evening glass of wine - if you can afford it! The full wine list is great but the by the glass wines are quite unimaginative. Coffees are very well made and the staff...More
