We went into Reid's for a drink - Hotel is wonderfully old world class. Cocktail bar is elegant with fabulous view of the bay and harbour. Nice service - great wine list. Winston Churchill wrote his biography at Reid's - I can see why.

This is a good place to go for an afternoon drink and spend some time relaxing and admiring the views. The service is impeccable, the drinks are priced based on the standard of the hotel so there is no surprise there. Very good standards...
