Had as voucher for a bottle of wine and cheeseboard visited on a Friday afternoon quite busy but able to accommodate us. Staff efficient, friendly and attentive. Surroundings very plush like the restaurant. Good bottle of Pinot Gricio and selection of cheeses. Also nice non obtrusive background music

Visiting this bar is like stepping back to a time of art deco. Really chilled bar area and good formal dining
