I knew I had picked well the moment I entered the Recess Bar. Venue...cosy and stylish, Music...modern and funky... the staff...professional, polite, dressed well with great smiles. Very welcoming. The Menu...delicious on the taste buds and art work for the eyes, 2 die 4 desserts, accompanied by amazing cocktails and ending with the perfect brew. If you enjoy the beautiful things in life, you must come visit the Recess Bar!

Couldn’t decide what to eat so got the ‘feed me’ menu. Great options. Delicious. Kids loved the buttermilk chicken and chips. My daughter has coeliacs and so we loved that everything was safe for her to eat. Will go again.
