Very dull bar with very overpriced drinks. Even added a surcharge that they don’t tell you about even if you’ve already given a tip. Will not be coming back as feel robbed

It was quiet when we visited but we enjoyed our drinks out in the garden seating area. The barman was very pleasant - unlike the staff in Foragers Restaurant down the road which is where we ate after these drinks

Enjoyed a giggly girls night out here last month. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Centrally located, perfect for after dinner drinks.

Mokoko's is a brilliant cocktail bar. It has a great ambience, very skilled staff and a lot of great cocktail options. I'm a particular fan of the gin combo, and the smoky whiskey cocktail served up in a bottle (I forget the name).
