Been in the industry for a lonnnng time. Never have I seen bartenders (especially David) move with such precision and fluidity when making drinks. Quality every time. Music top notch, drinks are perfection. 10/10 would recommend.

Visited for Sunday brunch on Father’s Day. Food was really good and kids were well catered for - especially the chocolate fondue dessert! Restaurant was quite quiet and we were lucky to get a booth. Food, cocktails and atmosphere are consistently good.

There’s no clear dress code here. You can wear casual attire, or you can scale up to something a bit dressier, but it’s not formal. Hope that helps!

A 5 piece Jazz band plays every week night at 9 that is true but maybe you would be interested in the fact there is a set on every Sunday with a solo pianist between 12 & 2pm? It's a very relaxed atmosphere.
