The bartenders manning the third floor at The Driver deserve a massive round of applause. The ability to keep up with a room full of thirsty patrons without looking at all flustered is a rare talent.

I didn't try them, but the bowls of steaming chips that came out from the kitchens (via dumbwaiter, apparently?) looked tantalising enough to warrant a return trip. Whether that be to the cosy...more
