Are there any decent ones?
There's 24's but since it's three houses down the road it's getting a bit boring and most of their drinks aren't that nice.

Epernay and Fat Buddah are quite nice, but both are incredibly expensive.

Epernay is very posh and we went there on a birthday once. It was a one off, I would never pay more than £3 for a drink again.

Epernay is probably the best. Most of the good ones cost £5 to £6 (I have sampled a shameful/impressive amount). They also do a good range of non-alco cocktails, the virgin dacquiris in particular are nice although I usually prefer something stronger, ahem.

Chase do cocktails of course, but that place has really gone down hill which I expect is the reason for nobody mentioning it. Brown Sugar do cocktails of an evening. Pricey though, if you are going to spend a fiver on a cocktail, you may as well go to Epernay.

I've drunk in Buddah, but never had a cocktail although I've heard they are good. The food is amazing, I'll give them that.

Chase went way downhill when they decreased the size but increased the price of the cocktail fishbowls!

Yeah but chase do 2for1 coctails weeknights before 8 so I would recomend it then.

I am fairly undrewhelmed by epernay which always seems to be either empty and atmosphereless or rammed full of locals who look like wannabe wags or wannabe granny wags.

Jimmys used to do nice coaktails but i havent seen any lately. It seems to be focusing on the house trebles thing.

reform place does nice ones from about £2.50 and also has the house trebles (but only vodka, whiskey and gin) with mixer for £2.50

and a treble whiskey and lemonade is enough to make anyone's eyes water.

but the other cocktails are great, i had this one they made up especially because they had loads of spare midori on monday, it was smashing.

I wasn't too impressed with Reform Place. They had no vodka for the (mostly vodka based) cocktails, or hardly anything else that we asked for. Was quite pricey too, and not anything special inside.
