New bar recently opened that was formerly known as The Lane. The bar which opened its doors on 31st May 2013 is described as a Gin Draft Eatery.

The place very stylish and is decked out with modern fixtures and fitments, exposed brickwork and pipework to the ceiling. There is a long bar to the left of the main entrance with low drop down lighting over the bar.

There is plenty of seating throughout for diners with a separate area to one side of the bar. The glass fronted doors to the front of the bar open out which makes the place bright and airy during the day.

Regular music on play at most times - a DJ is a regular feature on a Friday and Saturday.

There is an outside area to the rear which is used for smokers.

Disabled access is good to the main bar Toilets which are downstairs are smart and clean.
