Rude staff. Over priced drinks. There’s one member of staff that’s always high on drugs. Smashed my friends drinks one night. Glass everywhere. Tried to get a refund. They only gave us cheaper quality drinks. Don’t bother going. Dodgy place!

We were served promptly by a fabulous Kiwi bartender Aidan. Bespoke G&T selection. Great ales on tap. Good British “pub grub” by a fine Albanian chef. Would recommend without question to anyone who asked. Worth every penny!
