The food was the star of the show. I had a pork belly hanging kebab and it was absolutely delicious. The cocktails were also first class, with a few really interesting and unique mixtures. I had a Gin Old Fashioned and it was very good.

Enjoyed the atmosphere here, some live music which wasn't great - but it busy and had a lively crowd. Nice gin and tonic!
