What we say:
This place has a lot to offer. Not only can you explore an extensive wine list by scrolling through a tablet but you can order many by the glass, allowing you to taste some of premium quality wines without buying the bottle. It doesn't end there though, as the phenomenal food menu sees such instant classics as crab ravioli, salt baked Yorkshire red grouse and 45 day aged Cumbrian Shorthorn steaks. The cocktails on the menu all receive a modern spin, with the classic G&T boosted with premium gin brands and a dash of cardamom and coriander while the humble Negroni gets a kick of personality through a variety of different garnishes, vermouths and gins. Grab a drink from the cocktail trolley or order some food at the bar for a great selection of stateside nibbles including hot dogs porcini and gorgonzola arancini, or shrimp and bacon croquettes.
