Have a great set up indoor and outdoors, service is very good however food is not really up to scratch, not terrible but not worth eating out for (there are better places to go) however is well worth a visit for a drink.

Lovely bar with friendly staff, great evening sun on the courtyard, and happy to have the dogs at our feet. Not tried the food yet but its a great place for a drink, esp with the happy hours and loyalty card!

Had a meeting here and wanted some nice quick nibbles and wine over the tea hour - waitress was very helpful and prompt service, a little pricey but very nice pulled pork and whitebait slides.

Great service, relaxed environment. Highly enjoyable place for a drink or two. Service would have to be some of the most attentive in the city. Staff are friendly and helpful.
