Great atmosphere and the tapas excellent. Have been there 3 times but last time the service was poor. A little less chatting amongst the wait staff would help and had to order another wine from our table to the barman across the restaurant. Great cocktails

If you want atmosphere with a new vibe - Tonic is the place. It is a happening place with great service. The food is good and wine list extensive and reasonable but cocktails are the go.

This was a great surprise. As a local it’s nice to be able to walk somewhere & have a couple of cocktails. We ordered the mushroom Arancini balls which were tasty. Have been there a few times now. Bartender/ manager friendly. Great atmosphere.

Not that I saw and the size of the Bar/ Restaurant most likely wouldn't accomodate a pool table.

Hi - I can confirm they don't have private rooms, but if you tell them you want to be separate when you book I am sure they will arrange the best they can do. It will worth it.
