    The bar was very cold dome of us ended up keeping coats on and we probably didn’t stay as long as we would have. Some of the seating is re as on uncomfortable, hard stools and lots of seating with no backs.

    Always a great place for drinks with live music and a lovely atmosphere. Buzzing with everyone out for a good time. A little noisy sometimes if your trying to chat when it's busy but a fabulous venue and thoroughly recommended

    Lovely early evening Friday visit. Bottle of champagne, lagers, coffees pretzels and an exceptionally nice cheeseboard to the backdrop of a lovely setting and a very accomplished young man with his acoustic guitar. Staff are chatty and friendly without being intrusive, nice cocktails & the toilets were tidy and clean. Would definitely call in again. Quick heads up-:They don’t accept cash (I can understand why they wouldn’t want to). Not a problem for me, but might be for others and in todays “inclusivity” culture maybe not very inclusive on the tendering payment side.

    Booked for drinks with 6 friends, lovely to hear live music but too loud to talk and catch up with friends (3pm) would not book here again and manager not really bothered. We sat outside but again music too loud not needed outside especially, if people want to see live singer then they should just go inside!

    Tried to take our drink order as soon as we came in and were still taking our coats off. Brought the bill with our first round of drinks which made it seem like they wanted us out of there as soon as possible (we had booked a table for 5pm). We asked if we could start a tab which they agreed to, but with every other round of drinks kept bringing the bill over and had to be reminded of the tab. We ordered some plates of food to share and they tried to clear them numerous times whilst we were still eating. Food was a bit uninspired - both the charcuterie and cheese boards felt like they were store bought and were just placed on a wooden board.

    Well what can I say, we received a five star service from beginning to the end. We were very looked after from the front of house who waited on us beyond belief? and made our experience really enjoyable. I never got the name of the person who was at front house that night on the computer but he made our experience absolutely amazing. We received a five star service I can’t wait for our next visit
