The Baxter Inn took its name from our favourite American racehorse Boston mob, its space from an old Cue Design fabric storehouse, and its look from a sports bar (minus the sport) and ended up with a place we like to think is pretty great to pass an hour or two. A place where John Cheever and Johnny Walker might spend some time together. The lights are low, the blues are blowing, and the spirits are high.

When you come down the stairs, and step through the door, you’ll see straight away that we like whisky here. And whiskey too, for that matter. We can tell you exactly how many bottles from the Highland, the Lowland, Speyside and the islands we’ve got lined up behind the bar: a lot. And we welcome you to investigate each and every one of these bottles when you visit us - our staff has a story for all of them.

But there’s more to the Baxter Inn than whisky. There’s pretzels, for one thing. And there’s plenty of folks who like what our bartenders do with cocktails, and the way they pour a beer. Hell, even the wine list gets a workout from time to time. What you drink and how you want to drink is up to you – we’re just here to help.

No bookings! Walk-in 7 days.
