Hard to spot but impressive once you find it, this converted tram shed incorporates a cavernous, chandelier-lit main bar and a smaller mezzanine, filled with decorative quirks and televisions for football viewing.
Don’t expect a too laddish crowd, though: the offbeat tone is set by a pair of winkle-pickers displayed under glass as you walk in, while Lionel Ritchie beams a Lionel Ritchie smile from an album cover mounted on the back bar.
It’s a laid-back bunch that mingles here, either parked on turquoise-topped bar stools or lounging on the banquettes and antique armchairs. Drinks may include draught Purity Mad Goose, Doom Bar and Grolsch, with 10 wines by the glass among the 20-strong selection.
