Some of the door staff here were on a power trip on Saturday night. Considering it's supposed to be a lively bar they are doing there best to kill the atmosphere. We were properly annoyed.

Anyway, it was an interesting establishment, lots of different levels... More

Very rude, ignorant bar staff. Refuse to serve people in the order they came to the bar, then get rude and abusive if you point out that you have been waiting, and then get the order and the price wrong. You would get a better service and atmosphere on the moon. Will not go back in a hurry. Its only... More

Mine was over cooked, not what I ordered and 15 minutes after the rest of the table, leaving me eating when everyone else had finished. I... More

We have looked at this pub a few times and passed it by for the well known chain next door, however with the the refurbishment we ventured in.
