The Alchemist's all-day dining experience makes it the perfect choice for all occasions, from that morning business meeting, brunch with friends or date night; it then transforms in the evening into a bustling, must-be-seen, social hub for a unique and memorable evening. The Alchemist's world of theatre served promises super creative cocktails and devilish dishes that will bedazzle all, anytime.

When visiting this loved destination for cocktails, they recommend ordering the sharing Mad Hatters cocktail, it's the perfect Instagramable creation that will turn heads! You could even try the gin and fairy liquid-based Bubblebath cocktail, it's a beautiful one to drink and watch come to life. If you're after a theatrical dining experience then they suggest ordering the Chorizo and Cheddar Dough Balls (cheese level - your choice) to start, and the very boozy bubbling Red Dead Zombie.
