Our compact list of drinks reflects our love of the classics as well as unexpected surprises. Shims and shrubs are our current favourite sharpeners and we make them here on site, but there are more traditional snifters we hope you will like too.
All the wines on our list are made by female winemakers. Why? Well, why not? The wine world is heavily dominated by men but there are growing numbers of women doing great things with grapes and our list is a celebration of some of the best. Several have been doing it for decades; others are newer to the game - we think all our wines have a certain feminine finesse and lightness of touch which sit well with our personality and with our food.
And because we like people to drink well but affordably, we add a modest cash margin rather than the usual restaurant mark up, so our wines offer brilliant value for money. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
APERITIF TIME: BEYOND THE G&T
Vermouths are our current favourite aperitifs, and we have probably the largest collection in Bristol. Ticking the box for a lighter tipple that's packed full of flavour, we offer ours on the rocks, with soda or tonic or in a negroni. Come and ask for a taste.
