Curler's Rest

Cosy and comfortable, The Curler's Rest has more than 600 years of stories to tell. This is one mighty impressive West End pub, with five real ales, 19 specialty beers and three ciders always on tap to spoil the discerning drinker for choice. The tasty menu of pub grub classics is changed on a daily basis and don't forget to look out for the diverse programme of wine clubs and tasting nights taking place throughout the week.

Vodka Wodka

A fun cocktail joint on Ashton Lane, Vodka Wodka is a hit with students and young professionals alike. Sun out? Excellent, make your way to their beer garden to soak in those rays while you sample their extensive range of vodka based cocktails, with a menu of light Italian-styled bites on offer to soak up that booze. A friendly, informal West End hangout for chilling with mates.
