Attentive staff with a mixture of beers and spirits and off course cocktails, enjoyed while sitting on the terrace in the sun overlooking the harbour. Great place to enjoy a drink as a couple with friends or pre-drinks before a meal.

Nice selection of drinks and lovely sea views. Quite expensive but worth it with the views you get and the people in there when you compare it to other places to drink in the immediate vicinity.

It's two for one from 5-7 sun-Thurs (excluding bank holidays), and it's on the 'bar tenders tipples' section in the cocktail menu. P.s. Bay of Bengal is my favourite! :-)
