Stumbling across the Lane Bar is like finding a jungle oasis. Visit this bar and you will not regret I. All staff are 100% on form, Drinks are exceptional and atmosphere is electric. Not to forget Monty the resident Prince.

This place is amazing, the decor is on point! For such a great cocktail venue it's really chilled out! I ordered a cocktail I had something made for my based on my likes and dislikes! Great service to offer bespoke cocktails!
