With its standout blue paintwork Monty's is hard to miss and you’ll thank your lucky stars that you didn’t walk on by this gem of a whisky bar once you step inside this cosy split level mezzanine space.

Twinkling on the gantry are over 60 malt whiskies from all over Scotland and the staff also seem to go out of their way to wax lyrical on the whisky without overshadowing its excellent beer selection in the process, with conditioning of cask ales being a particular hobbyhorse apparently.

And you can enjoy all of it in very warm and friendly surroundings that all add up to an experience we reckon you’ll want to repeat again and again.
