Fortunately it was well worth it. Evans & Peel is a quirky delight!
Hidden behind an unassuming side door, your detective experience starts with an interrogation about the misdemeanours of a member of your party. In my case, the birthday boy was accused of having indecent images and using them to blackmail people!
Then the fun really begins with an extensive cocktail menu and a range of smoked bar foods. We shared a platter of mini burgers which turned out to be surprisingly filling and attempted to work through the list of cocktails. We didn't manage to try them all but I did enjoy a delicious beetroot based number, and another marmalade flavoured one with a frog spawn like consistency. Both were much better than they sound - honest.
Our booking was just for 2 hours - it seems to get very busy on Friday and Saturday nights. I'd like to have stayed a little longer and will definitely be back again.
