Dinky Dory Review - Ormskirk

Dinky Dory is a new cocktail bar in a small friendly town called Ormskirk. However, this is no ordinary cocktail bar. Dinky Dory is a bright and colourful venue that is full to the brim with character! 
It is set out in the style of the seaside, with deckchairs, wooden swings and comfy couches (complete with bright stripey cushions) and adorable little beach huts for customers to sit in. As soon as you step foot in Dinky Dory's, you cannot help but smile and admire the decor surrounding you. 

This place instantly makes you feel welcome, not only because of the bright decoration but also because of the amazing members of staff who work hard and go out of their way to make sure their customers are happy. The staff are always smiling and laughing, which adds to the charisma of this wonderful little place. 

On top of feeling welcome and relaxed, you can enjoy a range of unique ice-cream themed cocktails (2 for £8.95!). I have never seen cocktails quite like this before, some of them even come out with whipped cream and sprinkles on top!

Not only do these cocktails look fascinating... I have to say, they taste incredible too!

Here you can have a look at the Rocket Lolly and Melon Blast cocktails (which were both very refreshing)


Now, I understand that cocktails may not be for everyone, but here at Dinky Dory's, that is perfectly okay! Along with their cocktail menu, they also offer a great selection of quirky food dishes. 

This menu is very different, in fact, I have never seen anything like it before! You can choose from pancakes, waffles or topped chips... this sounds pretty normal, right? But what if I told you that the pancakes, waffles and chips come with a choice of bacon, burgers, cheese, chicken and pulled pork? Strange... yet surprisingly tasty (and very filling!). And don't worry, if you find yourself with a bit of a sweet-tooth, they also offer pancakes and waffles with traditional toppings such as Nutella, ice cream, strawberries and sugar and lemon too! Not to mention their yummy shakes and sundaes! 

Now, so far this sounds like a cocktail bar with great food... but it could also be your favourite coffee shop too! Dinky Dory has become my new favourite place to grab a coffee and relax whilst doing university work or blog writing, as it has such a relaxing vibe to it and the staff make you feel warm and welcome, which is one of the main things that I look for if I am going to be sitting there on my own.

You can purchase any coffee from latte and cappuccino's to iced lattes and cups of tea, for just £1.95! And it gets even better... they are refillable! If that does not sound fantastic, I do not know what does! You can even help yourself to a range of tasty coffee syrups too.
