“Student haunt”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2013

Packed to the rafters with students and teenagers. If you are over 30 and don't mind the student crowd, then go for it.

“Not great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2013 via mobile

Student hot spot because of the cheap food, and that would be the only draw to the place.
The service is very poor and because of the way that the place is laid out the staff could be oblivious to your presence until you go to the bar and ask to order food. Even at that, the service is very slow and, even when quiet, the staff show no attentiveness. But when the food eventfully does come you'd need a torch to see what you're eating as the lighting is very bad.
The food is cheap and you get what you pay for. If you're a student you'll love it; cheap drink and food. However, if you're not you may not enjoy it as much.

“The walk-in fridge”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2013

Foods decent although pizza can be very greasy! Possibly caused by too much cheese or using a cheap cheese?

Service is good, their polite and friendly.

Although place is freezing, coke is flat and pint glasses are really greasy (need a better
clean)!

Decor is nice!

“Great Pizza!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2013

For bar food its not too bad but the pizza is pretty tasty so that's what I would recommend. Service is always good, I pop in for lunch sometimes and they are quick, not bad value for money. Its very dark which can be weird having lunch, but I imagine if you were in for the evening it would be pretty cosy.
