We tried to have a drink there pre dinner at Le Gavroche ( I will finally do that write up this week!) Sadly it looked dead as in not a sole to be seen and it appeared a little austere inside.

Just checked out Knight's Bar. Sounds posh. Being slightly scruffy myself, I love to going to 'old school' places. Think I'll be dropping in here for a Martini. Like it vodka, with a twist myself. Preferably Belvedere.

I'm definitely going to check out the Player aswell Mr Grant. Favourite cocktail?

Anejo Rum, Orange Curacao, Lime juice, Angostura bitters

Another one I often order is an Apple Jack Cocktail, its not on the menu at the moment but they will make anything you want. Calvados, Orange Curacao, Lime juice and Orange bitters.

By coincience they are next to each other in Dale Degroff's The Craft of the Cocktail.
