Nothing Special

Called in for a drink, the prices are average and the bar is popular with students. It's a standard walkabout bar with nothing different to the others I've been to.

Walkabout has changed for the better when it was re vamped. it's a good club if you want some space but pretty average. Wouldn't highly rate it, would say they need more bar staff at weekends as you wait ages at the bar & security need to be better as I had males becoming mouthy to my female friends. Was... More

Do not go into his club. Absolutely disgusting behaviour from door staff. Fighting. Punching. Poor. They started on many people for no reason with a bunch of drunk people being kicked out for the smallest reason (having fun) and then getting beaten up!

Disgusting behaviour from door staff,on two separate occasions have taken upon themselves to physically remove clubgoers for no apparent reason,actually causing injury to one on Friday night,will be taking this further,not acceptable!!!

We regularly go after work for a drink at the Walkabout, it has a great atmosphere, garden out the back where smokers can enjoy a drink and smoke. The "happy hour" is from 5pm to 7 pm and drinks are currently half price.

We went to Walkabout as part of a Hen party. The atmosphere was good but as you walk around, the floor was dangerously wet and slippery. I slipped over and managed to bruise myself but the bouncer next to the stairs I slipped on was unconcerned. The drinks were pricey and we moved on pretty quickly.
