“Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

They have a wide range of Drinks and music playing to suit everyone's taste, and the bar itself has different areas such as booths, tables and high tables so you can choose your preference. The staff are always really helpful and polite and it is nice to be able to have a chat with them- contributing to the fun and relaxed atmosphere that the bar has overall.

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

We cam across this place as were staying just round the corner, we found it had a great selection of drinks and was a great venue for a wide range of musical tastes.

“Not bad!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

My friends are part of a band who sometimes perform here. The drinks are reasonable, the staff were really helpful too! The music is good as well, but I've only been here about 4-5 times, it's a little hard to notice.

“Good music in a dive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

Come here for a beer and some loud rock; just don't expect anything romantic - because this is a working man's sort of pub and the atmosphere gets quite lively and animated as the night wears on. It's definitely not my ideal venue (you can smell the disinfectant they use on the floors) but I will come again if I'm out with a few mates for a drink and some fun. It's very centrally located just off the Mile.
