The maxi screen is awasome for watch sport, with others 10 tv, but the staff is unkind and the security during the weekend night is rude.

We turned up late, not really expecting much. Love free entry - though a mission to get in with security! The drinks were average, but the wine - £4 a glass, £7 for the bottle - amazing and sweetly the bar maid told us about this little bargain! Music was worthwhile though, had a little boogie before closing which was... More

5 stars for the vibe inside 0 for the managment: bouncers are terribly rude and want to show their superiority by making you do non-sense things: going all around to join the queue...while there is no queue..., shouting at you and treat you like dirt. one of our friend had an ID with no hologram on it, could not get...

We ordered the Kangaroo Burger £8 and the Classic Beef Burger £5.50, both came with a good sized... More

if you just wanna have some good fun, value for money and be a bit crazy, thats the place to be. it closes at 11pm anyways, you can catch the last tube and you are not forced to hang around late night. if you dont mind getting dirty and deal with some funny people, you really should experience it once....

Went here today to watch NZ vs Oz..(NZ won..just to get tht in) but had to log online to post a review. The Walkabout has a bit of a bad rep and I was hesitant about going. But so glad I did!! It's a good time, people are chilled, cheap alcohol and great atmosphere. If you are a homesick Londoner... More
