Casually Sophisticated

We welcome you to our hidden gem, nestled on the historic Barbican’s South Side Street. Step inside The Bottling Plant and be greeted with imposing original pillars set against the glistening quartz-veined, flag-stoned floor, and walls adorned with portraits of the past. Pick your favourite spot, sit back, relax and make yourself at home. Acquaint yourself with one of our friendly baristas for a freshly ground coffee, or an afternoon cream tea. Sample our simple, locally sourced menu, prepared by our equally local and talented kitchen.
