Great place, cool atmosphere and really good drinks!
Superb bar, great service, great music and a great atmosphere, even in these Covid times
The drinks were fab and the service was great!! Will absolutely be back!!
Gorgeous place! Loved the drinks and service was top notch.
Quite dark, loud and expensive. But great service, music and drinks on offer. Just need to get the balance right
Great place, great cocktails, great staff. Atmospheric décor with plenty of room to socially distance. Table service only with very knowledgeable staff, who can advise on the cocktail menu.
Fantastic night, brilliant service, and most importantly the cocktails are amazing. Bonus points for a cracking soundtrack.
The table service was excellent, I asked the chap who was serving for recommendations on drinks. He seemed to know the menu inside out and was spot on with his recommendations. The drinks were delicious and the atmosphere was great. Bit of a shame that we visited mid Corona as I’m sure it would have been even better. Would definitely recommend.
Great drinks and friendly service.
Great cocktails 👍🏻
We had a fabulous time on Saturday night. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and the cocktails were ace!
We had a wonderful time at the Milk Thistle where the atmosphere is second to none. I also felt v safe and distanced from all the other customers whilst feeling cosy too as you'd expect in a cocktail bar. It is a bit pricey but that's what you expect. Cocktails were different to.those advertised on the website but all tasted amazing.
Lovely cocktails. Hard to comment on the atmosphere as we were outside.. Would love to come back and try inside sometime.
Awesome bar and great offering
3 out of the 4 drinks we ordered were weak, didn't taste much alcohol in them. Shame ad the vibe and atmosphere is good, would have stayed longer had the drinks been.
small selection of drinks but staff were more than happy to make something off menu
Amazing cocktails and great service from knowledgeable staff who are always happy to help.
Such a brilliant space for a beautiful cocktail and romantic date! Will be returning. The attention to detail for the social distancing remits was spot on as well.
Great cocktails, great service, great atompshere. Literally couldn't ask for anything more from the guys.
Great cocktails, and even better service. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and the drinks were incredible
We were accommodated despite a late booking request. The drinks were fab as ever, and the service exemplary.
Best cocktails we’ve ever had and a great atmosphere!
I would have given 5 stars for Atmosphere,but in these social distancing times I had to shout to hold a conversation. Whilst I enjoyed most of the music being played, the quality of the sound was average and definitely too loud.
Me and my boyfriend decided to come here as part of our 2 year anniversary- we were so excited to visit and our expectations were fully exceeded. The service and customer service was so lovely and you could tell the staff really knew their stuff on the drinks and were more than happy to offer their advice on drinks and go through the menu with us. At the end of the night one of your staff members also offered to give us a tour of the rest of the rooms which he really went above and beyond by doing. Thank you so much for our amazing experience and we can’t wait to return soon!
