The Cos Bar offers a modern pub setting with some traditional favorites, London Pride, Spitfire and Adnams,  The building itself is impressive and retains many period features, Dutch gables and ornate lamps amongst them. There are two entrances to the ground floor, one from Queen Victoria Street the other around the corner in St .Andrew's Hill.

The ground floor is a good size with an assortment of modern seating and the fairly small bar, upstairs there are two more levels a mezzanine and a upper floor. The mezzanine is particularly enjoyable having a view of the bar below but you will need to get there early to enjoy this. The food menu 'east meets west' is substantial and as you might have guessed ranges from Pad Kee Mow to All Day Breakfast. Both of which we tried, the English was thumbs up but the Thai was not a hit.  Table service was available during lunch for both food and drinks, being St Andrews day a free drink of Vodka and blue lemonade was being handed out, a nice touch, which sadly was spoiled by the waitress saying the table would be needed for other dinners minutes after our plates were cleared, which cost their tip.

Having said that, the beer was good, the environment very enjoyable and on the whole the service was pleasant, there’s even Sky TV and a fruit machine to pass the time.

The Cos Bar was The Goose at the Castle back in 2006.
