“Hired their outdoor garden and rear room for a leaving do and can’t recommend it enough. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful, really flexible with pre-orders and food options. The food we had was delicious. The team were on hand and super friendly but not overly intrusive. Amazing cocktails too! Will definitely be back! Thank you!”

“Andy & Carly couldn’t have been more accommodating. It was out first large group venture out (cocktail workshop) and we had the best night since March 2020! Andy was a fantastically knowledgable mixologist and very entertaining and the rest of the staff team were brilliant…having the chance to all be together for the first time in one indoor/outdoor space and to let out hair down eating, drinking, singing, dancing and laughing lots! So much fun.”
