While inside you’ll find their partnership with Sipsmith in full action, complete with six limited-edition cocktails. Choose from favourites like the Serve it and Smash, a strawberry and mint twist on a classic martini; Game, Set and Match, a floral rose and strawberry spritz; or the alcohol-free FreeGlider Courtside Colins.
