Why we love it

For sophisticated drinks that will delight the senses, excite the tastebuds, and fill you with childlike glee at the incredibly creative concoctions on offer, look no further than Her Majesty's Secret Service on Whiteladies Road.

Entering Her Majesty's Secret Service (or HMSS to those in the know) is a treat in its own right; look for a black door, and then nip through a phone box to enter. Yep, you read that right: a phone box. Once inside, soak up the amazing decor of this cocktail bar, abandon yourself to the barman’s clearly extensive wisdom, and sit back and enjoy the unlimited monkey nuts provided on the house while waiting for your drinks.

The cocktails themselves are something else – a regularly changing menu (which itself is always beautifully presented) typically lists around 10-12 stunning creations. Innovative, exciting, and totally delicious, these little beauties are a real treat. Inventive but still utterly quaffable, these well-balanced cocktails are a treat for all the senses; visually stunning and dreamy to drink.

The team at HMSS are a delight, too: friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable, without any of the intimidating, know-it-all bluster that can be so off-putting in a barman. For indulgent after-work drinks or a proper weekend treat, HMSS is one of the finest spots in Bristol.

Lovely for a special occasion. A bit overpriced for a more casual drink


Love it, definitely going to return. Although didn’t like the cocktail that was on offer with Wriggle, there were many on the menu I would have liked to try


I will definitely go to HMSS as often as possible!!!
