Visited with some friends upon a recommendation but was sadly disappointed. We were waiting a while at the bar to be served, despite the fact that it wasn't exceptionally busy, and there was little atmosphere there.

I love this place. Fine, it’s not local food, if that’s what you’re looking for, but the venue is great, the food is tasty and the cocktails and bar service are excellent. Give it a go!

Midweek and empty and therefore lacking in atmosphere. However, a warm retreat on a Winter's day. Cocktails and cocktails aplenty for our party who sat in very, very comfortable seats. Very good service. Recommended for drinks.

This place was highly recommended but is basically just full of pretentious clients nursing expensive drinks while stroking the egos of each other. No real atmosphere,£4.50 for a lemonade with a slice of watermelon in it, the only good experience was chatting to the bouncers.More

I'm not entirely sure, but working in the industry, I know that most restaurants/bars that are any good will do a little extra for special occasions if you let them know. Hope this helps.
