Had a quick nightcap here whilst staying at the Hilton on Bread Street. Very nice decor, but also very quiet and as a result lacked any form of atmosphere. But it served its purpose and the bar tender was a pleasant guy. Not sure what...More

Friendly and fun team. Reasonably priced for a city bar. Nothing seems to be much trouble. Had express lunch on one visit and that was lovely. Would definitely recommend a visit even if only for a drink or one of their cocktails.
