    The food came from the hotel upstairs and was good quality and good value simple fare with few choices as heads and tales is really a cocktail and drinks bar . This was made clear when we made the booking so we knew what to expect food wise. But we enjoyed the vegetarian an the fish platters . The main purpose of our visit was to sample and learn more about the gin choices and cocktails. These were excellent and the care and explanations by the two bar staff could not have been bettered. The environment and atmosphere of the setting was lovely and interesting. A thoroughly enjoyable and instructive evening and a 25 per cent reduction on the bill for all bookings made in January added to our pleasure. Well done to the staff and thanks for you guidance.

    To be honest, pretty grim. Absolutely nothing offered here that can't be found elsewhere. Nothing special at all.

    Great drinks, great bites. I had been before for the tour and loved it. However the seats they reserved for us were very uncomfortable. They eventually offered to move us which was most welcome!
