We visited the pub after seeing it from one of the tours. So glad we did! It was excellent. Really good atmosphere and the cocktails were good. Got served really quickly too which is good. We stayed for ages!!! Would definitely recommend.

I came in just for a few drinks before going elsewhere for a meal but then after looking at the menu we decided to stay for food as well, this was brilliant, the food and drink and were lovely, the pub looks amazing and has a great feel to it. The music was exactly what i love. Both me and... More

There seems to have been a lot of changes to this place. There's never any events on anymore: no DJs, no bands and no movie nights. Lots of new staff and most of them seem a little glum, the music policy has changed from metal and rock to some kind of generic mish mash which seems to feature a lot... More

Called into this Gothic themed pub for a couple of pints before having dinner nearby. The front room of the pub is painted with black paint and various curious objects hanging from the ceiling and the staff appropriately dressed to complete the spooky theme. However the customers and the menu appeared to me quite normal, which looked to be very... More

I've had bad service in pubs before, but as this out a complete downer. Stepped in the door and we were both promptly and rudely ID'd before I was halfway in. As I'm female in my late 20's and it's so rare that I get ID'd, I normally don't mind, however the attitude and scowl from the bar staff was... More

Nice, friendly staff in a great location. The cocktails are awesome and great value for money. My favorite place to drink in the city. I'd recommend it to anyone.

It's now five years since I first went there, and it gets worse each time I go. The food went from good to decent, and now hardly acceptable. The staff has completely lost their smiles!! The drinks are still good, but the menu has been simplified. Looking for the toilets' door is the funny thing. But, because of the awful... More

My table was not flat and my drink slid off it spilling all over me and the floor. The manager refused to replace my drink and accused me of lying to get a free drink. He said he had "better things to do" than come and look at a wonky table in the pub he was supposed to be managing.... More

We went to this pub on a recommendation from a friend. Whilst there we looked at the menu & decided to have a snack... well what a snack. It was described as a club sandwich with a small portion of chips. The sandwich I had was a triple layered chicken club, chicken breast with lettuce , tomato & red onion,... More
