“Not quite abc, but a fun place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

It has a Great atmosphere, and there seemed to be plenty of seats downstairs, although upstairs is where you wants to be. Food so so. In fact it's just so so......nice place for drinks and that's about it really. I would certainly go again, but there are so many fun places in this part of London, it should be part of a crawl!

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2011

Came here for a catch up with some friends last Wednesday night and had a reasonably good time, but there are lots of other bars in London that have a better atmosphere and cocktails. I found the ones here too watery and my Espresso Martini was way too sweet. However, the skinny fries and the Baked Camembert dish are yummy bar snacks to share!
