Dive Bar Drinks
A Fun Drinking Experience in Stylish Surroundings
Dive Bar is open five days a week and at night the bar comes alive with cocktails, bubbles, beer and great music. We have a wide range of draught beers and lagers, craft ales, whiskeys from around the world, rum, vodkas, tequilas, gins, classic cocktails and bespoke cocktails.
We see ourselves as a place for grown-ups to enjoy some grown-up drinking, in relaxed surroundings with the widest range of drinks for the discerning palate. That isn’t to say that we don’t like our customers enjoying themselves and we have a daily Happy Hour (three hours actually from 4pm to 7pm) when we have special offers on cocktails, Prosecco and selected beers.
Beer, lager and cider.
Like all decent bars worth their salt these days, Dive Bar offers over 20 beers, lagers and ciders. Many of these are on draught, including premium lagers, a range of craft beers and IPAs, a heritage cider from Ireland and, of course, a nice drop of the black stuff. We have bottled craft beer and lager from around the world as well as fruit ciders.
With low and non-alcohol beers now back firmly on the menu, we have a range of really excellent alcohol free alternatives available in bottles and cans. We also have a gluten free IPA from Lawless Village for those with wheat intolerances.
Wine & Fizz
We select our wines very carefully to ensure that our customers have both choice and quality. Our reds, whites and rosés provide a good range for all tastes and pockets. Choose your wine by the glass for light drinking or by the bottle when ordering with food.
If it’s fizz you’re after, again we have a range of promiscuous Proseccos to add some sparkle into your day. And you can get a bottle of our house Prosecco Mionetto for just £15 during our Happy Hour from 4pm to 7pm. For those with only the finest taste, we have Veuve Cliquot Champagne or Vintage Dom Perignon to really make thing go pop!
We pride ourselves on having some of the best cocktail mixologists in Dorset and there’s literally no cocktail that we can’t make for you. All your classic cocktails like Martini, Mojito, Margarita, Cosmopolitan, Daiquiri and the king of hangover cures, the Bloody Mary are available; in fact all Classic Cocktails are Two for £15 during our Happy Hour from 4pm to 7pm.
We have a range of special Dive Bar cocktails for you to sample too. Riders on the Storm, Honey and Smoke and Diamond Blue are all sure to hit the spot. If you want something we don’t have on our menu, just ask and we’ll do the alchemy while you wait.
We are a nation of gin lovers and in 2018 Brits bought almost 55 million bottles; we can safely assume that this figure only went up during lockdown. Dive Bar stocks over 12 different gins which can all be complemented by our range of Double Dutch tonics.
But we don’t believe that it’s just gin that should receive the ‘craft’ status and we’ve made it our mission to have the widest range of spirits in Ashley Cross. We have a dozen whiskeys and over 16 dark and light rums from all over the world. If vodka’s your thing we have six premium brands for your to try. And for those that like to get all Pancho Villa on us, you can line up seven different tequilas.
Soft Drinks & Hot Drinks
We have all the soft drinks including the Double Dutch range of mixers. To keep you healthy (or to top up your cocktails) we have a wide range of fruit juices and to keep you up all night we have the obligatory Red Bull.
If it’s a little early for alcohol we have plenty of hot drinks too. Our barista coffee is made to your specified requirements by our skilled bar staff using freshly-ground Bad Hand coffee beans. We can knock up a decent hot chocolate (our deluxe version includes marshmallows and sprinkles) which can be jazzed up with a syrup shot. We also have a range of Teapigs herbal teas for all the ‘tea hipsters’ out there.
