A little difficult to get to but the venue itself is pretty cool with a laid-back atmosphere, plenty of space upstairs which is ideal for a party, easy-to-talk-to bartenders and a good vibe all-round.

Flaming Nora! It’s never nice to keep a lady waiting, but I couldn’t keep my date in The Dog House for his tardiness when I rather took delight in his choosing of The Doll House. I sat waiting, perched against the sketched on mantle, taking in, what’s really quite a beautiful concept. You’ll find you’ll be cheered by the beautiful drawn on panelled features. It’s all up cycled. Office chairs are plush teal and houndstooth. My inner 7 year-old delighted in the similarity of The Dolls House design to my 1930s arts and craft dolly house I once had, but this one’s even better, as mine didn’t have a giant disco ball or cocktails. As dolly birds slunk in from the city, the casual 50s rockabilly trilled away into more upbeat tunes, so I’d say this would be a great place to come for a a Guys and Dolls night out, too. There’s no need to worry about being a little spendthrift in here either, as although they wouldn’t accept my dolly monopoly money, dinner and cocktails didn’t cost much. We both ordered diner-like food, for me: My what a sausage! My venison dog was positively undignified in my dainty hands and for him, a giddily high burger, even in giant manly hands. The night would have been complete if I’d had a Sindy-like pink corvette to ride home in.
