    Service excellent but menu now too limited. Chicken burger far too dry and inedible. Nowhere near as good as it used to be. Very disappointed.

    It was awful -like going to a Wetherspoons pub. Service wasn’t great, drinks were not good and we didn’t stay for the food.

    The Bar is conveniently placed 50 paces from Cineworld on the Waterfront so convenient if you are visiting the cinema. There is a varied a la carte choice. I had the falafel burger which was unfortunately too big for my appetite, but well presented. My friend had the tasty prawn curry. Service was excellent.
