Called in for a few drinks and found some fab bands playing. Upstairs is cosy with settees and feels like you are in someones living room. Very quirky but great vibe. Will def be back.

I have attended the wonderful 'Literary Salon' upstairs, on the last Wednesday of each month, on a few occasions, but had never actually spent time in the pub downstairs until a few evenings ago. It's a lovely, quirky place - and only five minutes' walk away from Haymarket metro! We and our two friends spent a very pleasant hour or... More

Visited for the Literary Salon. Bar Loco is bigger than you think; it has a bar, gallery and several upstairs space, so if you're visiting for the first time you may want to check out the signs just inside the front door to figure out which room you need to head for! I had pizza and a pint of real... More

We didn't eat here, but really enjoyed the atmosphere. It's very chilled and inclusive, and the bar area is full of fun, interesting stuff. We sat outside - the seating area is quite small and just tarmac, but very relaxed. Would go back.

Came for a leaving do and had a table reserved which made it easy as there were loads of us. Prosecco for £18 was perfect for the job and I tried 2 pizzas - ham and mushroom and a goats cheese one. Both good for the money!! It's not fancy but great for Friday after work drinks. Live music was... More

Surprisingly this place serves lovely food. Nice place to chill especially in warmer days. The wine doesn't taste so bad either.

We reserved the space upstairs for a get together and it was perfect. We could just order individually as and when we wanted. Nice simple food at reasonable prices.

We visited for a night out and found the bar to be very friendly, a good range of beer and wine and great atmosphere. We decided to have lunch there a week later in the cafe area with our daughter, the food was excellent and again were made to feel welcome by the staff. A lot more personal than most... More

Popped in for a quick pint before the football. Beer was good, service was good and the locals were friendly. Prices were reasonable.
