We visited here for after dinner drinks on a rainy cold evening, but were able to sit outside and enjoy the atmosphere of the City as there is a large covered and heated pavement area. The local wine was very good and served in very generous glasses!

After work stop, central located and cosy and small place for a few drinks. Food was okay but the drink suggestions at the bar were fabulous.
