I love this bar and recently came with two friends and sat in the outdoor space they have set up for the Covid rules. It's a great little space, it feels cosy and warm under the heaters and doesn't feel too raw or make-shift. My only complaint would be that the taco truck they have on site run out of food by 8pm, but understand everything is a little tricky in these current times so its understandable. Would highly recommend!

Fabulous venue, really intimate. Great cocktails, lovely food. Staff were so lovely and all wearing PPE and taking the right precautions, however still managed to be warm and friendly. Great little spot very close to London Bridge station. Will definitely return.

The place had a good vibe downstairs in the bar. The music was good. Some cocktails were a bit hit and miss. Some of the food items were a bit overpriced for the portion size. Overall we had a good time and glad to spend an evening here with friends.

Had a great first time here on Friday as part of London Cocktail Week (month!)

We didn't eat and spent 90 mins here for 2 or 3 cocktails.

Great service. Nice atmosphere. Noise ramped up to lovely just before we left.

Will almost certainly be back

Went for LCW but was disappointed as the drink wasn't mixed properly and as it came without a stirrer or straw made it difficult to enjoy. Ambience was fine and good service

Third visit here and had a lovely evening as always. The tacos are so tasty and v moreish and had great cocktails, and first place I've been to that served Cremant, which I've not had since trip to France, such a lovely refreshing drink. We decided to sit away from main seating area, in the corner with the chaise longue at the foot of stairs, which might just be the waiting area, but it was so cosy and quieter and felt like we were in a separate old fashion sitting room. so if wanted more socially distant seating then this is where to sit- though might catch whiff of taco van outside. Friends say that the signage in the toilets needs to be improved as men always seem to be in the ladies and they can see why not so obvious when enter. The only disappointment was popcorn - £4 for a tiny bowl- the size that would normally be given as complimentary at some places- think much much bigger bowl or halve the price would better reflect what it is worth.

Excellent food, really delicious and fresh fish tacos and tostadas. Drinks were nice, a little expensive but worth it for a special night out.

I enjoyed my time there. Everybody was helpful and couldn’t do enough for us. The food was delicious! The measures for Covid were efficient and following the the government guidelines. I will recommend it and I will certainly go back again.

This bar was fab and the cocktails were amazing but there was little to no social distancing. We were crammed up next to another couple which felt quite imposing. Would go again on a less busy day!

I didn’t eat there so ignore food rating.
Great cocktails and service although my bill wasn’t explained and I felt it was much more than I’d calculated, so assume service charge added.

Went during the 'Eat Out to Help Out Scheme' which made the food good value for money. 3 of us and we ordered one of everything. Well worth the try and the quality of food is great. Portions aren't massive so without the scheme I think I may be left feeling hungry unless you want to spend.
Cocktails were good again on expensive side but central London so expected!
Definitely recommend.
