Font was a regular haunt for my group of friends when we were at uni so it was a natural choice for a reunion. The cocktail menu is extensive and the vibe is good. The food is ok - not expensive; worth what you pay for it. There's plenty of space so you're not crammed in and generally it doesn't... More

Loved it. Seated area reserved for us and even though we were delayed, they contacted my son to make sure we were still coming. Friendly staff and brilliant atmosphere

Come here with my friends regularly now after having such a good time each time we come. Every cocktail I've tried has been delicious and they're so cheap! Lovely little atmosphere and a favourite of ours

The drinks are cheap, however they are only a few mouthfuls which is why they are so cheap. The whole place seemed grotty and like it needed a good scrub.

Been visiting Font for a year or so now and it never disappoints. The bigger food menu is a massive bonus, and the brownies are to die for and they're only £2! Cocktails are pretty much made in an instant and are always lovely, only ever visited in the daytime so can't comment on night time service or waiting times.... More

Lovely little bar, gets packed but understandably! Nice for a quiet midweek evening, really nice range of cocktails which go from about £2! Good music and funky vibe!

This is a very chilled bar where you can get a variety of cocktails. The cocktails start at £2 and the most you pay is around £5. The more you pay, the stronger the cocktail. We enjoyed many cocktails here, particularly liking the kiss from ruby. The staff were great, trying to serve everyone in turn and as quickly as... More

Our group of friends go here quite regularly while we have been at University. The cocktails range from £2/2.5/5 and they have good prices for beer too (2 bottles of DAB beer for £4 up till 10 o'clock). I always get the nachos with the special (£5.50), but the other food is just as nice and around the same price.... More
