“This 'hidden' cocktail bar may take some finding but it's definitely worth the effort (look for the flag and door handle in the shape of an antique musket). They do interesting cocktails presented amazingly but all the classics too. It gets pretty busy after 9pm at weekends so have a couple of cocktails before dinner to avoid the crush. ”
