This bar is so cool! I would go back just to visit again! The place is built into the ground like caves! It’s such a hidden gem it’s worth seeking out! The drinks are pretty awesome too! Could spend all day in here!

Wanted to go here but came about it by accident, not easy to come across. Stunning bar and set up. Different type of bar than anywhere else in the region. Water features. Seating coves, stalagtites etc

Had to queue to go in, so thought it would be something spectacular. You can either sit inside where it’s a bit dindgy and wet, or outside by the waterfall. Luckily we got a spot outside but the seat was broken. Most of it is...More

The bar is such a great idea, it was so lovely to be able to sit in a little alcove and watch the terrapins sunbathe near the waterfall. We had already read that the cocktails were 'no frills' but they were still a little disappointing...More
