Good selection of cocktails & wines but the smell is just horrendous. Had planned to hang around for a few hours but left after first drink because the smell of sewage was just too much to bare.

I used to go to Mokoko years ago and it was always very busy. I went last night and the place was nearly empty. The service was great but I've never seen such small glasses used for cocktails. Total rip off to be charged £10...More

Really inventive flavours and really well made cocktails. The table service was good. The Turkish delight espresso martini was amazing. I could happily work my way through all of the cocktails here.

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

As much as we try, to create a pleasant atmosphere if it's early and quiet it can be harder. Our prices, are similar with other cocktail bars in the area. All the surcharge info is clearly written on the receipt. Thanks for your feedback.

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
