Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Visited a couple of times for drinks. Nice selection from milk street brewery and 3 guests. Very welcoming. Didn't try the food but menu (especially the burgers) looked good.

    The staff was friendly and able to help. They made some changes to make the drinks suitable for allergies, which I appreciate. The variety and taste were nice, however the alcohol used could have been a better quality.
    The place and toilets were dirty, even at such a time of the evening when the place was almost empty, which means that they didn't care much to have it ready before the next service.

    This is a very intriguing pub. I visited early in the evening in November so it was dark outside. The building is black in appearance and lit in away that gives it a very 'Gothic' feel, it look amazing! The welcome was friendly and courteous. The interior was well decorated and had a very warm feeling. I would of given it a 5 rating, however, the gents toilets need a lot of work, they have certainly seen better days. Other than that, I'd happly visit again and I can recommend the place!

    Yes it was a Wednesday during the government scheme of 50% off, therefore when we were told half of the menu was unavailable at 7pm, we accepted that.
    However on ordering food online everyone’s order (family of 4) we were told were now also unavailable.
    We managed to order some food : a “bucket “ of nuggets is actually just a bowl & the lasagne was just warmed up, dry & crispy & plonked into a cold bowl.
    Yes half price, so should I moan?
    Just had higher expectations & hopes.

    Great band and an ok live music venue. Whilst the acoustics are good the venue could do with some modernisation such as the toilet facilities!

    A great bar that serves pretty much everything your palette requires. The hosts, Geoff and Rebecca are visionaries, to place a hot tub at the back of the bar is either genius or a health and safety faux pas. A warm welcome and cold beer is always on offer as well as some weird and wonderful liquors......
    The bar itself is very very inexpensive and the owner, Geoff (or Bungle to the regulars), allows people to pour their own AND his!
    A fantastic hangout with an xbox 360 on the tv to be used and abused......
