  • bar tenders here are ammmmmaaazing!!! ask for their personal favs theyll blow ur mynd!!
  • The cheese board under the reign of Peter in choice
  • Ask for a toasted sammie, if it's early they won't hate making you one so much!
  • Nice drinks done with maximum fuss and banter - and don't forget to ask about the secret menu (the steak tartare open sandwich is rather good)
  • Ask for the 'secret menu'. They'll pretend they don't have one, which is just part of the game. On the 'secret menu' is the four-course degustation offering, and you can upgrade to Animal Style drinks
  • Great knowledgable friendly staff. Cool atmosphere. Sanctuary away from the mess that is Courtney place.
  • If you want a superior tonic water with your drink, ask for East Imperial.
  • This place is amazing. The menu has changed each time I've been back but I highly recommend any of their cocktails with Pimms.
  • Instantinis are instant and amazing
  • Go wed night after 9. See the amazing Bourbon Turbans !!
  • Apparently they have a secret menu and will deny that it exists when you ask for it. I never dared to ask.
  • The cocktails! Enough said.
  • Great cocktails and atmosphere second to none
  • Small cosy place, great for a drink before or after dinner.
  • Don't be afraid to go off menu, talk to one of the bartenders and tell them what you're feeling. You'll end up with something unexpectedly awesome!
  • Peter, Chris & Co will take a damn good care of you. Cocktails off of the menu are wonderful but have some fun and order custom spins on classics; they love making them
  • Everything is good, bar tenders are world class, and a load of fun too.
  • Ask for chocolate martini with Mexican chocolate liqueur. It's not on the menu! :-)
  • Try and be here to hear George from Room 99 - awesome jazz
  • These guys are grand masters in taming the untameable flavour that is Gunpowder Rum - get them to make an off-the-cuff creation (they love a challenge - seriously)
