The Premises

We were looking for suitable premises for the best part of 3 years, with lots of false starts, before we stumbled across the lovely prominent old building on King Street. Immediately we walked in we could see how it could be transformed into a great space for what we wanted to do. The feedback from our customers since we opened on what we’ve created has been amazing so we think we were right!

For a long period it was a pharmacy – The Chain Pharmacy – hence our decision to reflect this part of its history in the building’s latest incarnation.

We’ve managed to create a modern, industrial yet cosy space utilising as much of the original features of the building as we could, with each of the 3 rooms and the courtyard having a slightly different feel. As well as an open fire, we’re also air-conditioned, so you’ll stay nice and cool in the summer as well as warm and cosy in the winter.

Cocktails

We’re famous for our cocktails – we have people coming from all over the UK (and overseas!) to try them and leave blown away by their quality. They’re all hand shaken and we are very generous with the ingredients so you certainly get value for money! We’ve over 35, constantly change them to keep the menu fresh and take on board our customers’ feedback and requests for any additions.

The gorgeous environment of our bar and the wonderful hospitality we offer is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail or two. We wanted to create a destination venue where people can really feel they’ve had a special experience and have created memories that they will look back on with pleasure.

In addition to our full sized cocktails we also offer a number of Mini Cocktails for you to try.

Beers

We have a great draught beer system that keeps the beers in top quality condition from the first to last pint poured. We have 3 lagers and and 2 Ales on draught which are very popular: we again have people coming in especially for our beers as they are so consistently good.

In addition to our draught beers we have a number of bottle lagers, ales and ciders as well as non-alcoholic options, so all tastes are catered for.

Wines

We’ve carefully selected our wines so we have good global coverage and a variety of grapes and styles so everyone can find something they enjoy, including a number of local wines. We are known for the quality of our wines – every one of them have been chosen to be of superior quality at an affordable price.

The majority are sold by the glass for you to try.

Spirits

We have a wide and ever-increasing range of spirits including various Gins, Whiskies, Vodkas, Brandies and Liqueurs. We’ve chosen premium brands for our House Pours to reflect the premium quality of our bar: Bombay Sapphire Gin, Absolut Vodka, Jameson Whisky and Bacardi Rum.

Team your drink up with a variety of mixers to suit your palette.

Soft drinks

We have a large selection of soft drinks to cater for all tastes including flavoured waters and a variety of juices.
