Mon-Thu 5pm-11.30pm Fri-Sat 5pm-Midnight Sun CLOSED
Brought to you by the people behind Bourne & Hollingsworth, this place is all about the cocktails, which are kinda the standard of hotel bar cocktails but in a drinks party atmosphere. Drink Fizzes, Flips, Cobblers, Smashers and Sours, some of which will be made at your very own table using only the very best of ingredients.
The drinks list is excellent – options are limited, but that’s fine when they’re all this good. Cocktails are beautifully served in antique-looking glassware by benevolent staff. Extensive sampling showed two clear winners: the prune manhattan, made with a fruit infusion, and the Port in a Storm (port, dark rum, ginger beer and lime). There’s no food menu, although we were brought a nice little bowl of nuts for free.
the good Reverend’s dimly-lit, humble abode perfectly serves its purpose, metaphorically punching every chintzy cocktail bar in the face by allowing its drinks to do the talking. Drinks like prune Manhattans and tequila/sherry cobblers, ‘Applejack Rabbits’, ‘Old Fashioned’s, and the manly ‘Port In A Storm’…. all perfected by the team from Bourne & Hollingsworth.
