Sway overall is good hence the average rating. We were a hen party and saw the burlesque show it was great fun and got the evening off to a good start. We'd preordered ALL the food but still had to wait one hour for our starters which seems quite common unfortunately. The staff are nice but the starter salad small... More

One meal which was also pre ordered was forgotten about and messed up. We were all starving it took so so long for our mains to... More

Visited on a Saturday and booked a table in the basement bar for a friend's birthday. Had to find the table ourselves as the staff couldn't be bothered to show us to it. When we sat down we were told by our waitress that we had to spend at least £150, which wasn't hard I suppose because the drinks were... More

I would not recommend this bar or the burlesque night to anyone purely based on the VILE smell coming from the menu. It smelt of sewerage and faeces. It was such a shame because the dancers were very talanted however i couldn't concentrate on them due to the awful smell. I made a comment to staff behind the bar who... More

Absolutley LOVED this experience, I've never been to a cocktail class before.. it was sooo much fun, you got to learn a few things at the same time, drink amazing cocktails and have a competition. Free prosecco on arrival, which is always a bonus, two cocktails which you make yourself and a shot at the end as well as nibbles... More

I came to this venue for a work related purpose. I was extremely happy with everything about it. There is a stereotype that clubs in London are dodgy and the doormen are thugs, people get beaten up all the time and gangs run them etc etc. This is of course not necessarily true (For most) however its certainly a recurring...

Great night out ruined by checking bank statement the next day. My fault for paying contactless, obviously well overcharged for 2 drinks, even at London prices.
