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.

Pre-made cocktails in a bottle?!?! £11.45 for a cocktail that is already pre made in a bottle is scandalous. Staff are whipping the cocktail makers round like it’s hard to mix pre made sprits with Ice. Imagine £11.45 for a cocktail that’s being poured from...a bottle pre-made in a factory. Get yourself to Wetherspoons for 1/2 the price. How can you justify?More

This is a great atmosphere to play party games and be taken back to your childhood would rate to go play games and drink beer for sure! Our food was cold and quite stale it came out super quick we had hotdogs and wings. The...hotdog buns were hard and crusty at the ends showing it was left out out and sausages cold. It’s super busy so I’m guessing they have these out and ready for chips and sauces. No server was available so we couldn’t mention this to them. The wings were fine just regular frozen wigs cooked with a sauce dribbled over the top. The drinks were hot and miss but you’re paying for the novelty of them. We order 6 cocktails in total and 2 in it if the 6 would order again. The games were so much fun so if I was going again I would drink beer and just play games. Then go for a nice cocktail and some food elsewhere after.More

Well I was surprised at how bad the staff are and how awful their practices are. Went here with friends ordered a glass of Zinfandel,the bar staff rinsed the glass with water and was about to pour the wine in until I noticed a few...mil of water in the glass. I quickly grabbed it and turned it upside down for the water to leave the glass otherwise it would've been watered down and then she did the exact the same to two pints of lager that I couldn't do anything about. As she poured into the glass it was flat as a pancake until she got 3/4 the way and started swilling around to get a head on it. 4 drinks was over 20 quid but when you get rubbish service and cowboy antics with the glasses it really annoys me. Will never go back. Sorry to be blunt but it really was garbage.More

Absolute suite, Mrs really wanted a stuffed duck for her birthday £19 duck all. Worse odds I've ever seen, I've never lost to a claw machine but I will not go beyond £20 for a stuffed toy.

Thought this place was really quirky. You can stop by for a drink and enjoy some retro arcade games that can costs as little as 2p a go. Worth a visit.

I was approached by your doorman in the club and asked to step outside. As was my partner. No context, just that. I was appalled that when I followed him outside into the street he wanted to raise an issue with myself and my partner...kissing and dancing together (we are both female). So we are having this very insensitive conversation now in the middle of the street where everyone can hear. Really disappointing in 2023 that you aren’t able to go out and enjoy yourself withoutMore

Excellent night out! Such fun and spoke with Dan the owner and got involved with the punters as well. Great place to go and such a good location too being on the centre of Nottingham and bang opposite the Ibis Hotel

Pros: There is a great environment as soon as you walk in. Drink and food selection is really good and there are a lot of good tables for all manner of group sizes. The seaside games at the back of the bar are mostly really...good. Anything that requires a token work well. Cons: I wouldn't bother with the table service (scan code on table), it's really slow and if anyone comes in after you've ordered and goes straight to the bar, they will get priority over you. Food was alright, nachos could have been salted ones though as they were a bit tasteless. Most of the 2p machines didn't work properly, the roulette one sort of worked but didn't payout everytime you won and the one where you drop the coins in didn't either, and 2 of the slots were broken on that one too.More
