Time Out says

From the outside, Dragonfly comes on like the apothecary shop in Harry Potter, what with its window display of herbs, spices and other curiosities in jars. But once you step inside, the bar opens up under an arched ceiling into a moodily lit wine cellar-esque space. The orange washed walls, dark mahogany bar and large mirror channel a retro Iberian vibe; to add to the homey warmth, when it's chilly out the TV behind the bar displays a burning log fire. Their cocktail list is extensive, and the savvy mixologists don’t skimp on quality. Less impressive is the range of bar snacks, which extends to overpriced "Rocket Salads" and less-than-enticing portions of "Ham & Cheese".
