So we attended tonight and the tricks were performed by a guest magician, Keiran. When we arrived we were lucky enough that it was just I and my wife in the venue, as it had just opened. We got our drinks, which were well made...More

Absolutely unbelievable and delivered by an old pro. He knows exactly what he is doing. Don't be fooled......... He has a wide range of skills. For the cost of a tip and a drink you feel privileged to be entertained in an intimate bar setting.

Popped in here on Friday night and was very quiet when we arrived but busier when we left. No idea why so quiet. It’s a great cellar bar, beers about the same price as the pubs but they have a brilliant close up magician. Really...More

even though this unusual old bar only has a shared toilet it is well worth a visit, traditional English interior good selection of drinks and lots of different bottled ciders, one small room although it does has a music celler bar open in the evenings.

First of all, the bar offers a 2-4-1 deal cocktails on Thursday and they taste great. I was very sceptical of the magic at first and tried to "control" the magician to see his "mistakes", but I have to admit it was amazing and the...More

Whilst I can't remember the menu off by heart I'm fairly certain they do but the staff are nice and I'm sure they'd whip you up something specific to your tastes should you ask :)
