Poetic License Bar

Poetic License Bar is the home of small batch gin, amazing cocktails, craft keg beer and soul food. Situated in the Roker Hotel, with amazing sea views, we cater for all dietary requirements, and needs.
Our food is what we would call “Good For the Soul” Food. We have a diverse menu ranging from Small Plates to Signature Dishes, with a bit of everything in between.

It’s not only great food we do, we have our own onsite distillery Poetic License which boasts an array of award-winning Gins and Liqueurs. Our bar manager also spends a lot of his spare time developing and creating new cocktail recipes, so if you fancy a bit of a boozy stay, you know where to head!

We also do have easy access points, for those who may need a helping hand. So don’t hesitate to ask one of our staff to help.

If you are looking for a little more fine-dining or even an event to fill your evening, we have The Ballroom and Lounge.
