Popped in for some pre- dinner cocktails . Unfortunately it is quite a small place in the cellar vaults with lots of nooks and crannies so we had to go upstairs. It was fine though we ordered our cocktails in the lounge and sat on...More

Dear Dandiedo, Thank you for your review. The Wingspan Bar is a really popular venue which sometimes mean that there is only limited or no seating. I was pleased that you managed to enjoy your cocktails in the Lounge area. Do come back and see...More
