Yes it’s well named being not much wider than a corridor. There are tables and bench seating down one side with shelves and a preperation counter down the other. The shelves are of course loaded with the 250 odd Gins stocked plus a couple of whiskies and rums. There is one keg beer (Moretti) and some bottles. Not one for the beer drinker but the enthusiasts running the place know their stuff on spirits and if there’s room I would say go. Mrs OB asked why they had hop bines as decor, I said they probably couldn’t get junipers.

Small one room with three tables to the right. Two lagers in the left wall - I had Moretti. Chatty barman who made everybody welcome, but I doubt I'll be back.

Justifiably claiming to be Durham's smallest pub, this is a tiny gin bar next to the bridge in not much more than a corridor. It doesn't actually have a bar but a large dresser displaying the range of gin, while the bartender circulates with (and chats to) the customers on the seats opposite. No draught beers but does have a few bottles of eurofizz. Great for gin maniacs and for the novelty value but not much else.
