Under The Stairs – Basement Bar

Owners Debs and Gav have worked hard to cultivate just the right atmosphere in their basement bar in Merchant Street.  A funky front room with fish tank and log-burning fire leads past comfy retro armchairs and kitschy lampshades to a stone-walled dining room with candles perched in pint pots and confidently mismatched furniture. Table service throughout keeps it nice and chilled for a diverse crowd, enjoying a well stocked bar and an appealing all-day menu.
