Pubs and Cocktail Bars

Descend down wrought-iron steps to sip a martini in a cool, dark basement bar; meet friends for the weekly quiz and a packet of crisps in a cosy rural pub with a roaring fire and a pleasing line in local ales, or try out a vintage speakeasy, where the décor is as appealing as the cocktail list. Pubs are the places to get to know the locals and to spend long nights 'putting the world to rights'! Cocktail bars give a thrill, for a sweeping view of a city, and for a strawberry margarita.
