- Review 1: An ailing wine bar tries to re-invent itself (re-discover itself?) as a cider house, to attempt to capture a recessed market, and perhaps it will work...Discount with NUS card, so clearly aiming on getting the students in. The Crossmans cider isn't bad and £2 a pint you can't complain. There is an upstairs area with outside terrace (small) for smokers. The real cider is poured from large wooden barrels behind the bar - not sure how well the cider will keep up there in the summer.. Rather too many vinegar flies around for my liking tho...
