My colleagues and I sometimes pop in here for a cheap lunch if we don't have much time. The service is good and the food is quick to be served.

Had a mixed grill , food was tasteless and to get things worse founded a piece of metal on my steak that got stuck on my gum. Worst meal ever. Amazing place to go on a night out but never going back there for food again.

Great bar & club popular with many but mainly a gay venue, however as the nights are getting warmer the club allows body artists in to paint the customers, the paint can leave a mess and seriously stain clothing so either avoid the body painting or don't wear expensive clothing as I don't think Pulse is going to pay cleaning...
