Love this place. Very cool. Great food - I had popcorn chicken and then a burger. The service is attentive and spot on. Their speciality is cocktails which boil and smoke. A must to visit.

We spent £43 on 4 cocktails here and were wary, as we have enjoyed cocktails in many different places and know a good one when we taste it. We weren't disappointed. The Vesper Martini and White Negroni are great!!
