    We had a great time. Our waiter was great and suggested great beverage choices. We were just left wanting with the small food portions of the share options. Possibly our mistake as we were there for a main meal not just drinks and nibbles.

    The gin tasting paddle was terrific. Staff were very knowledgeable of each of the gins. We ordered some share plates and the food was delicious. Lovely open space with good seating.

    The 7 of us throughly enjoyed the different gins and the quality of the food. Can't wait to go back. We would like to keep the distillery as our little secret, but we know that would be unfair
