Come for the moonshine-inspired cocktails, stay for the classic flavours at this quirky local’s spot on Stranges Lane.

Named after the department store that was in the iconic Strange's Building at the turn of the century, it has an industrial workshop feel and a fabulous collection of bric a brac, as well as charismatic staff who see every customer as a potential friend.

The menu is small but perfectly formed. There’s a selection of high-quality meat, doused in jus and served with seasonal veg, gourmet salads and choice of mouth-watering sides. Don’t miss fries laden with smokey bacon mayo and parmesan!

When it comes to drinks, you’re spoilt for choice. Take your pick from an impressive selection of bottled beers, fine wines and signature cocktails.
