Such a great place to be - excellent beverages and food menu and an absolutely impecable staff team. Cocktails and craft beer over there were delicious! It`s a pity I was in London only for a few days, otherwise would definitely become a regular. Really recommend it! http://powderkegdiplomacy.co.uk/

A fantastic addition to the recent surge in St Johns Hill new bar/restaurant openings. This is a truely elegant and special bar and I loved every thing about it, very well considered decor with antiques and colonial touches, fantastic cocktails and red wine list and an atmosphere that is incomparable in London.
