A word from The Distillery Bar + Kitchen
The Distillery Bar + Kitchen opened in the Spring of 2013 serving up straight forward Italian-American style dishes and boozy handcrafted cocktails. The menu was developed with an emphasis on sourcing local ingredients, taking the time to make products from scratch and being inspired by the way that ‘Mama used to make it’.

The restaurant hosts a long 30 person communal table ideal for large groups, family-style dining or getting to know your neighbour. Guests can also pull up a stool at the restaurant bar which looks on to the fully open kitchen for an interactive experience, or sit outside on the heated patio to people-watch with a bottle of wine and flavourful pasta.

You may reserve seats online for a maximum of six guests. Please note that due to the style of our restaurant service parties of 4 or more may be sat at a communal dining table. Cheers!

    Great ambiance, great food, great wine and vodka! I would definitely go back again and again :) Only reason for a 'Good - 3 Star' ranking is the fact that despite making reservations online for a specific time, when we got to the restaurant, the hostess claimed that there were no reservations under my name. I showed her my email confirmation but she suggested I wait for a table to open up. I asked for alternative options, to be seated at bar etc. Eventually, we got seated on the side of Paulie's which was great! Just slightly disappointed that we didn't get a seat where we wanted. Oh well, next time :)
