World Cocktail Week 13th- 19th May
Two for £15.50 on any of our non fizz cocktails and all of our 1806 specials take on the cocktail as we celebrate the day the word “cocktail” made its way in to the Oxford Dictionary. This seem like a great day to us to go crazy and have a cocktail at the quay all week.
Step back and enjoy our 1806 specials that have been chosen and made long before our time
