We enjoyed our evening here. The food was nice as was the atmosphere. Very enjoyable evening. We had a party of 5 and was looked after very well.

Nice place to go in the evenings. Friendly staff. Lots of good selection of wines but also whisky. Plenty of seating.

Loved this spot, we were there as a couple, and really needed a few more friends to make it rock! The place was fairly busy, and the range of wines was excellent....a board showing all the wines by the glass, so we made our way through a few of them, and all were great value and good solid wines.....Cotes du Rhone, Bourgogne Chardonnay to name but a few. We had a saucisson and bread with olives, it was divine, set the night off wonderfully.

Stumbled upon this place while leaving the main square. This is a very trendy wine bar with an extensive choice of wines, champagne and Whiskeys. Try the house beer its gorgeous. Plates of food looked lovely although we didn't order any as we were only drinking. Called for one drink, ended up staying for several. We will be back.

Down the stairs and into a basement of arched brickwork, funky lights, and a bar with about 60 different kinds of whisky plus an impressive selection of other drinks too. Helpful barman, good spot for a drink - but not a restaurant !
