I'm no connesieur but the fillet steak was very good. A lot of places mess up cooking a "very rare" steak right but this was superb, very lean cuts too. Draft beer choices suit the place well and the pale ale was very nice. Service...More

Stopped in for a drink at end of night, great live music and vibe. The craft ale was lovely quality, and the acoustic music added a lovely atmosphere.

Fab little find. Fantastic ambiance, with attentive staff. We did ‘before and after’ dinner drinks (we didn’t eat here as we had already booked elsewhere beforehand) but we will most definitely be going back to try the food.

The steaks were good but the plates were cold. Very limited menu, and insufficient cheese boards to accommodate our party of 8, so we had to share 2 between us.

Called in here for a drink to escape the madness of Bury Christmas Market. The owner kindly opened a few minutes early to allow us in from the cold. We enjoyed several drinks in the end, due to the lovely welcome and the delicious Barolo!!

We were visiting our friends in Bury St Edmunds who know of this wine bar so suggested that we all ate there. This is a great little wine bar and although its a very simple and limited menu, it fits perfectly with the ambience and...More
