Quick service and an interesting menu. The posh fish finger sandwich is great! The location is very convenient, just off piccadilly gardens, service was quick, and the staff very helpful.

Sorry Alchemist but yet again poor organisation by the bar tenders which meant a long wait with others arriving later being served before us. Appreciate it was busy time but it has now put us off visiting or recommending to others. ☹️More

Food was excellent, really good value for money. Small mix up as my sister wanted only starters as a main and they arrived without my burger, but this was quickly rectified. Great atmosphere and good cocktails

Brilliant place to sip cocktails with friends, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff , the high light for me is when you order a cocktail that " smokes"

I would think so like before 10pm because there is a separate side for the restaurant but I would ring them to check :)
