The Magnum Bar & Restaurant says ?

As its name suggests, The Magnum aims to straddle the divide between watering hole and restaurant, with a horseshoe bar at the centre of things: drinkers congregate on one side, diners assemble on the other.

There are some unusual ice creams too. The wine list is currently being upgraded with some additional monthly selections; otherwise expect a workmanlike assortment of beers, lagers and cocktails.
