The best place to have a drink in Chippy. Sometimes they have Tribute on tap. The bar staff are friendly and care about what they do. Respect

We went here for dinner with my parents. We received a warm and friendly welcome from staff and the service continued that way throughout. We all enjoyed our main meals which were well cooked and nicely presented and there was a good vegetarian selection.

The Raspberry Bakewell cocktail, the first I tried was presented like a work of art! We tried 2 others, Long Island iced tea and a pornstar Martini and the attention to detail, strength and flavour equally as high. Better than any cocktails we've had in...More

They don't have a website. I have been here lots of times. The cocktails are good quality price at about £6. Is say they do about 30 cocktails but I'm sure they would make the one you wanted.
