Chambers Cocktail Company beat to the top spot other bars in Liverpool and also London, including the one in famous restaurant Sketch.

Chambers, which took over the former Lawyer pub, in 2018, run by experienced bar owners Nick and Briony De’Ath and Matthew Saunders, was judged on its reviews on social media sites like TripAdvisor, Instgram and TikTok as well as how much it charges, on average, for a cocktail.

“Their five star TripAdvisor rating and the fact that the average price for a cocktail is only £8 makes them one of the top ones to venture to.

“We looked at each bar’s TripAdvisor review, capacity and average price of a cocktail to determine which cocktail bar offered the best experience as well as the best price.”

A spokesman from Chambers said: “We’re delighted to have been recognised by Misguided...especially considering the other incredible bars featured on their list. Norwich is a great place to drink with plenty of fantastic bars and pubs so it’s brilliant to be representing our city.”

It comes after Chambers last year was listed in the country’s top 40 cocktail bars on lifestyle blog Go Hen, which helps brides plan their hen parties.

Their cocktail menu includes drinks inspired by different countries in different continents, including a ‘Vienna’ with carrot cake vodka, white chocolate liqueur, cream and cinnamon and an ‘Arabica’ with spiced honey vodka, cold brew liqueur, salted honey syrup and an espresso.

Coming second was Liberte in Liverpool and in fourth place was Sketch in Mayfair, housed a in a former 18th century tea room which is an artist conceived gastro-brasserie with art on the walls.
