Downstairs at Ask for Janice, through the secret door (if you can find it) is our private hire space ideal for parties of up to 45 people. The urban feel of the basement bar with a one off graffiti wall designed by street artist Kid Acne has a unique feel for parties looking for something just a little bit different. The room has exposed concrete walls and pillars and is served from it's own bar with a dedicated team for you. There's space for a DJ and if your party wants a late night vibe we can extend the licence to 2am. Ask for Janice is a relaxed space and the sharing menu for parties reflects that with choices from £5-£25 per person all adaptable to suit your needs. With over 40 gins & 60 beers both on tap & on draft there are choices for everyone. We're a flexible group so let us know what you need and we'll do what we can to make it happen.
