    After some extensive testing, we have to recommend the Gin Mare. Don’t be put off by the tomato and basil garnish – it’s incredible! Read more

    The summer cup is a brilliant drink, for girls and boys. Their olives are the best I've ever had. Staff are fantastic, really knowledgable and friendly.

    The London Gin Club turns the The Star Cafe into an absolutely cracking gin join at night. Amazing cocktails and the best kitschy/divey ambiance.
