    To start service was very slow with our first order of a sharing cocktail taking around 25 minutes to arrive. After that the service did get better as it got slightly quieter. Some of the staff(not all)at first were quite dismissive and seemed almost fed up but as the night went on they warmed to us slightly and asked what we were up to and how our trip to Glasgow was going which was nice. Overall I believe the staff just deal with lots of difficult people so are quick to judge those at first but once they realise you are normal decent people they are more friendly. As for the service time this could be due to shortages of staff during this time so I cannot blame them. Nice place with nice cocktails, good ending to a night. Thanks very much!

    The place was lovely and the cocktails were fabulous a little on the expensive side but they do come with the chance of Instagram worthy pictures. The food was a little disappointing for options but I went with picky eaters without looking at the menu so maybe that was my fault, I would recommend the hash browns to anyone though.

    Had pre drinks here before going on to dinner elsewhere. The servers were attentive but it can be slow getting the drinks which is understandable given the nature of the drinks being made. It might just be worthwhile keeping that in mind if you've got another reservation, so you can order another as your drinks arrive. The drinks are nice and obviously focused on being a bit different with how they are served and presented. They are more style over substance but it wouldn't stop me from going back.

    We had booked outdoor seating but on arrival all tables in the outer area were taken. The greeter on the door said that we had been swapped to a seat inside - which was a small corner table squeezed in by a pillar that gave no view over the rest of the bar. It wasn’t great and I have no idea why our seat was changed. We won’t be going back. I’ve given a fair rating for food but we didn’t have any - we were only there for drinks.

    Everything about my experience was great but towards the end of my visit my friends and I felt rushed to give the table back as we were being stared at by servers and reminded our reservation was up at 3:15 pm multiple times. We had paid the bill and were finishing a drink and again still being told we had to leave soon. Just felt a little bit rude but I do understand that the table was probably booked right after us.

    Ordered mango mojito as it was on the menu to have dry ice never came with this- this was the only reason we were coming here as they offer cocktails with dry ice. Also adding on a 10% service charge should be upto the customer if they want this added to the bill or not.

    The cocktails here are absolutely amazing, we really enjoyed them. We have been a few times now just for drinks and always been impressed. However, our last visit we also ordered food and the dishes came out lukewarm/cold. The portions were also a bit strange (we ordered the magic mushrooms which came with 'tofu' and there was ONE cube of tofu). Had they been served hot and perhaps the portions evened out I think the food would also be outstanding, from what I saw on other tables.

    Really disappointing experience. We firstly had to fight our way through folk smoking at the entrance shielding from the rain. We had a reservation in the “outdoor” bit. We waited half an hour before I had to track down a member of staff to order a drink. When the drink came im fairly certain I was given the wrong one but we’d waited so long I just drank it. It also had dry ice that made it spill everywhere and I asked the waiter for napkins when it arrived and I’m still waiting for them. We decided to leave and honestly I wish we’d just left without paying as again I had to track someone down to pay who thought I was there looking for a table when they’d showed me to a table an hour earlier. Will not be back.

    The staff were quite rude, we ordered cocktails and some food which was fine. Then we ordered 2 other cocktails and the server gave us the bill (we didn't ask for it) with the two cocktails we hadn't had yet on it. We had to chase up our other drinks but should have just left!

    Our visit was great and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.I would like to mention that I had booked for a 2 hour slot from 16:30 to 18:30 and we were reminded about 3/4 times that we would have to move from the table @ 18:30. I appreciate the reminder but once is enough. Everything else was great thanks.

    Lovely chilled place. Good cocktails. At least 3 requests were not available from drinks menu and the service was very slow. We were an hour and 10 minutes before someone took an order for our second drink. We didn't eat here but the food did look very good. Would return again maybe not on a Saturday so the service wasn't as slow.

    Very disappointed with the menu not enough choice & found it hard to find food we would've liked. After ordering on recommendation of waitress we ordered 3 dishes between us. Thankgoodness as there was hardly any food on the plate & it was not very warm !!. After complaining we did get a discount on the Bill but will not be bck there for a meal.
