We ordered the crumpet with a...more

After recently being refurbished, I thought I would give this place a go.

I arrived for lunch without a reservation and was warmly welcomed and asked to sit at the bar. The bar staff were great and happily made up a very moorish virgin cocktail. Unfortunately I can't remember the name.

They have one of the most beautiful bars I've ever seen! Dressed in dirty pink with stunning barman waiting to serve you. Every cocktail on the...more
