That is quite odd!
Here is the menu in case anyone's interested. Interestingly it seems to only have soft drinks on it.
Do they still have a license? I imagine they must do if you had a bottle of wine. Strange no alcohol is listed though
Decidedly odd, as I walked in at exactly 6.30 last night and was welcomed as their very first customer. No one else came in for at least 15 mins. We left at about 8pm (didn't eat) and there were around three tables seated then. I fail to see how two people could have been served and finished in 30 mins - hmm! Although, to be fair, we were standing outside so can't be catagoric about that.
The menu sounds interesting but it was explained to me that they plan to change chefs every three months, which seems a very strange business model to me but what do I know!
They certainly have a licence for all things alcoholic. Lots and lots of staff and a rather intimidating and disinterested maitre d (manager/owner?) hovering. The chap behind the bar (in a pork pie hat) was somewhat ebullient, shall we say. Tagged himself as the finest mixologist on the planet (or that's what came across).
Oh, and £5 for a bottle of Budvar - blimey! It looks very much more restauranty than bar, as all tables were laid up and there wasn't really much space for just having a drink despite being told with an expansive wave of the arm that there was a "gathering" area.
All in all, I didn't come away with great impressions but I would like to go back and try the food.
