This rustic-looking, low-lit bar is the sort of place you can walk past a few times without noticing, before it becomes your secret go-to and you make it your mission to demolish the cocktail list one-by-one. OK, that’s Saturday afternoon sorted. But every Monday lunch time it’s all about the £5 burgers. Ninth Ward also do decent lunchtime deals the rest of the week, which are good for the days when you’re a bit hungover and only baskets of fried chicken, hot wings, and beef brisket will do. And if by some happy accident you’re still there after lunchtime, then Happy Hour starts at 3pm. Just so you know.
