Summary

In Southernhay, a basement wine bar that’s “slightly out of the centre but well worth finding” – not least for its “super wine list” (“but the food’s OK too”); the ambience is a tad schizophrenic… whilst one reporter found it “dead as a dodo”, another felt “overwhelmed by the conversation of ultra-important-sounding office workers!”
