We had such a great time making our potions. Martin and Lotte went out of their way to make our experience magical. The drinks were also delicious.


Brilliant experience brewing ‘potions’ in this underground cocktail bar. Well designed cocktails that were very nice. Friendly and helpful staff. Great experience for any Harry Potter fan. Would really recommend


We had a great time mixing our own potions. Good drinks and lovely people,. We were served by Lauren, Bex and River and had a fantastic time here!


Amazing host Lauren and magical potions, great venue for harry potter hen party. Still going strong after mixing potions


We had an absolutely amazing time at Magic Potions Tavern. The atmosphere was great, the diy potions were entertaining and the drinks were amazing. The ‘bar elf’ Lauren was extremely accommodating to our situation and was fantastic at presenting the drinks. 10/10 would recommend and will definitely be going back!!
