We called in for a drink mid afternoon.

We ordered 2 beers and a cider and were charged over 25€. The measures served were half advertised but we were made to pay the higher price.

The sofas were ripped and when we say down no fewer than 2 move ran out. Decor upstairs in very poor repair.

Downstairs in better repair but tacky and vulgar.

Staff were rude and unhelpful even by Parisian standards.

I'm not overly convinced that they know who sir Winston was; surely it can't be sir Churchill as he'd be spinning in his grave to be associated with such a hideous place!

I walked in off the street today wanting a cup of coffee and a glass of champagne. The waiter didn't speak English (but big surprise that not everyone does speak English in paris), but with my limited french I was still able to order and they were pleasant enough. If you keep it classy you will have a nice experience.

What a terrible experience! To avoid for brunch at all costs. Arrogant waiters, bad service and all round embarrassment for a british drinkery

Watch out if you pay with a credit card! They will hand you the credit card machine asking for a table number, if you don't pay attention, you will punch in your pin code .And then it is too late! They just got to figure out the fourth digit to buy stuff from the internet. Had to cancel my credit card just to be safe. Complained to management by mail and still await for the answer/apologies. Staff are rude as you'd expect, apart from that this place is nothing special and over price due to the location. Don't go there.

Went here for a drink on Valentines, took a while to get served. Finally enjoying my drink my boyfriend spotted a mouse!! He quietly said to the waiter who said " we try get rid of him but he keeps coming back...welcome to Paris" safe to say we made a quick exit after this.
