Visited here as part of my birthday celebrations! I’m a huge fan of magic and wanted somewhere a bit different to start the night. Magician was amazing and even the guys who weren’t too fussed about visiting, were the ones at the front hooked. Will...More

The drinks are as you'd expect, but the magic is amazing. We had nearly two hours of expert, close-up magic from Paul, who is a great host as well as being a great magician. He made us feel welcomed, entertained, mystified, amazed, and like I...More

So we attended tonight and the tricks were performed by a guest magician, Keiran. When we arrived we were lucky enough that it was just I and my wife in the venue, as it had just opened. We got our drinks, which were well made...More

Absolutely unbelievable and delivered by an old pro. He knows exactly what he is doing. Don't be fooled......... He has a wide range of skills. For the cost of a tip and a drink you feel privileged to be entertained in an intimate bar setting.

Popped in here on Friday night and was very quiet when we arrived but busier when we left. No idea why so quiet. It’s a great cellar bar, beers about the same price as the pubs but they have a brilliant close up magician. Really...More

Whilst I can't remember the menu off by heart I'm fairly certain they do but the staff are nice and I'm sure they'd whip you up something specific to your tastes should you ask :)
