Must do! Beautiful interior, amazing service and the most incredible food. So tasty. I could have done with one more tortilla for the fajitas, but that's a detail that won't keep me from coming back.

The food was great and the cocktails were even better. Besides that, the whole place looked good. Cocktail tip: Black Jack

It's surely a place that's different from all other pubs and clubs. Go there if you want to have fun and good drinks.

Poor management! Firstly had to wait hours for our table then waited even longer for the food to be served to us. The drinks were really nice though and the food was ok or might of seemed it as we were starving by that time.More

This is legit my favourite bar. It’s fun and full of quirky cocktails. Reasonably priced too. I can’t wait for Nottingham’s to open.
