Me and three friends visited Hogarth’s on June the 15th 2018 whilst on a night out.

The place can get busy and quickly, we arrived at 10:30pm and the bar was packed and we found a single table left.

Despite the bar being pretty busy we were served pretty quickly. I see other reviewers complaining about handling of fruits and ice but the lady who served me exclusively used tongs, so I have no complaints.

The gin selection is also great and has something for every spirit lover. I would definitely be happy to return.

First time we have been & probably our last! We arrived fairly early before 8.30pm. There was bits of rubbish on the floor as we walked in. The bar was very sticky as was the drinks menu !We ordered a gin tray. We managed to find a table which again was very sticky I asked for it to be wiped down. First impressions of gin tray was good: little bottles with 5 gins with instructions of what tonic to mix with; little ice bucket, little pots with lemon, cucumber, chillies, orange,grapefruit. We tried a couple but then realised they had given us the wrong tonics (they had given us the gins from option b but the tonics from option a) so sort of spoiled the experience of our first ever gin tray! There were a lot of young staff standing around instead of in my opinion wiping things down & making the place more appealing.

What a lovely venue spoiled by the intrusion of TVs - you just cant escape!
We called in for a drink on Saturday afternoon and TVs were just everywhere - and observing the people in there ;not many were actually interested in what was being broadcast, but it does distract you and take your eye
Very nice restored building - we are put off by who drinks here , their behaviour , and the intrusion everywhere of the TVs

I couldn't believe what I saw standing by the bar this evening. The girl behind the bar was making a gin platter, as she was putting the fruits in the bowls with her un washed hands. Which was lovely already, but then she rubbed her hand up her mouth and nose. Then carried on handling the fruit. This pub is trying to be premium this is not premium behaviour!

Me and 3 friends had a lovely start to our night at Hogarths the bouncer at the start asked if we were all okay due to one of us being on crutches checking we got in safe. Lovely sociable place, more of a pub layout than a cocktail bar but brilliant for pre drinks on a Friday night. We shared one of the trays which was well worth it’s money and a lovely way to experiment with Gins will definitely come again and would recommend to anyone
