A cross between The Continental and The Plungington in a city centre location the bar is the latest opening from the Meat and Drink Group.

It’s been more than four years in the making and the project for Rebecca Scott, Jeremy Rowlands and Nicola Heritage has gradually increased as they discovered new parts of the building.

Thought to be at least 250 years old the bar includes the original gin making premises used in the city.
