This was our dance floor with snacks, drinks and live music at a very close friend's wedding recently. The atmosphere was wonderful, it's quite a small venue but full of character and with very warm, welcoming and helpful staff. I would certainly recommend.

We spotted this bar while exploring Leadenhall Market and thought it looked like a wonderful place to enjoy an afternoon drink. The bar is tiny and dark, like being in a cute dungeon. It would have been great I'm sure if anyone had greeted us,...More

Five of us met up in this subterranean bar for a couple of bottles of late afternoon Pinot Grigio. It wasn't too crowded and we were delighted to get a freebie plate of beautiful sausage rolls and scotch eggs.
