Went here for my daughter's 19th birthday lunch. The food we had was good, although fairly standard - however it was quick in coming and hot, and the portions were decent (especially the chicken in a basket (in a chicken shaped basket) and the sticky toffee pudding). But what really makes this special are the cocktails. All the different ones we had tasted lovely, and had a huge amount of theatre. From dry ice, through bubbles, colour and flavour changes, the drinks were as fun to look at as they were to drink. And the younger kids were able to have very tasty non-alcoholic drinks as well.

Visited for drinks last night with a friend for the first time and thought it was brilliant. So much choice it takes a while to study the menu, but it’s worth it. The bar was very busy, so it did take a little while to wait for drinks, but the theatre of seeing the drinks being made helps with that. Had so many people ask what cocktail we were having (we had a few!)

Came in with my partner for a couple of cocktails - we loved it. More staff needed on the bar because it’s time consuming making the cocktails but other than that we couldn’t fault it!

Popped in here on a late Saturday afternoon after we’d had lunch elsewhere. The cocktail menu is extensive and I could easily have spent the afternoon working my way down!
I picked ‘the colour changing one’ which was dramatic and tasted lovely. Price was what I’d expect to pay in a city bar -£8. Our barman was very polite and friendly.
I was sat near the bar and loved watching all of the cocktails being made up.
I wouldn’t hesitate in returning and trying out a few more!

We booked the alchemist for some food the place is very pretty a lot of time has been taken on the décor and it is a very nice place. The tables are a bit squeezed in but that was fine there were booths available as well as tables.

Although the place looks nice and food is fine I don’t think we will go back the whole experience felt a bit like a very overpriced fast food restaurant, so much so that the waitress practically took my husbands dessert plate before hed even finished.

The staff were lovely but this isn’t a place to go and relax and enjoy a meal and some drinks it has a very get in get out kind of feel to it.
