The Cos Bar offers a modern
pub setting with some traditional favorites,
London Pride, Spitfire and Adnams, The building itself is impressive
retains many period features, Dutch gables and ornate lamps amongst them.
There are two
entrances to the ground floor, one from Queen Victoria Street the other
around the corner in St .Andrew's Hill.
The ground floor is a good size with an assortment of modern seating
and the fairly small bar, upstairs there are two more levels a mezzanine
and a upper floor. The mezzanine is particularly enjoyable having a view
of the bar below but
you will need to get there early to enjoy this.
The food menu 'east meets west' is substantial and as you might have
guessed ranges from Pad Kee Mow to All Day Breakfast. Both of which we
the English was thumbs up but the Thai was not a hit. Table service
available during lunch for both food and drinks, being
St Andrews day a free drink of Vodka and blue lemonade was being handed
out, a nice touch, which sadly was spoiled by the waitress saying the
table would be needed for other dinners minutes after our plates were
cleared, which cost their tip.
Having said that, the beer was good, the environment very enjoyable and
the whole the service was pleasant, there’s even Sky TV and
machine to pass the time.
The Cos Bar was The Goose at the Castle back in 2006.
