Stumbled in here on Saturday night paying £4 for the privilege. Was expecting good things for my £4 but found 1 heaving sweaty room, no outdoor space. 3 deep at the bar. Long toilet queue. Cheesy 90's R&B. Lots of sleazy old men. Good for...More

If you want a laugh and like to watch people then give this place a go. Grubby nasty and quite a few desperate people in there I would compare it to a scene in star wars ! All shapes and sizes go here and it...More

A demise of a once friendly basic boozer turned into something that would not look out of place in Ibizia 20 years ago, unfortunately everyone has moved on since those days apart from Mr Kinglsey's clientèle. Fine if you want loud, brash and basic 'entertainment'...More
