Terrible Place
Jun 2021 • Friends
Terrible place, went to watch the football with some lovely friends, spent a fortune in there, all very happy and just enjoying the night, till the terrible manager decided she wanted us out, was running her finger across her throat signalling to the bouncers to clear us out ! Charging £11 for a single baileys, and also charging towards the end for doubles and giving singles ! Manger was all smiles when we were spending, but changed at the end of the night, horrible place - we will all spread the word, in a pandemic when good place are losing their business, this place treats people like that - Never again would we step through that door, and the Manager should look for another job, she clearly didn’t want the place to re-open, guess she just wants to be placed on furlough and relax whilst the government pay her wages - Never again - Horrible place - as we were walking out, Many others said about the Manger as well

The service of dreams
Dec 2020 • Friends
Good Sunday night guaranteed!! This is such an authentic pub full of adventure. The staff are amazing. A welcoming smile from Kevin at front door. Great service from Elenor (she was so quick and read our minds when we wanted “feeding!”)Jade also made sure we had all we need. Great food! The chicken you kind were so fresh and the vegan burger also very tasty (from a no -vegan eater) Real HONEST staff reminded us of government rules but how to get a waxys experience! Live music was amazing!!! Will be back for sure!!!!

Horrible security guard, ruins any charm this place has
Oct 2019
Had been here before and was a nice setting to come to for the unique interiors and average priced drinks, but last time I went the security guard here was rude, callous and sharp.

I was told to take out the contents of my two heavy backpacks (having come straight from work), which fair enough you're doing your job but then when I sighed and asked if I had to he instantly got angry and told me and my party of 6 that we weren't allowed in. Get better staff who know how to interact with other humans, other reviews support how horrible this guy is.

Terrible!!
Mar 2020 • Friends
Had a good time at this place, until someone attempted to spike my drink! After I saw this happen, I reported it to the barman. An investigation was sorted and the barman gave me a free drink without me asking for a replacement. After a few sips, I was kind off put off and felt like my night was over. I decided to order a glass of water and was sipping that, waiting for my mates to finish. About 30 mins later the security guy came over to me, told me he had reviewed the CCTV and accused me of lying! Started saying things which not at all relates to the incident and ended up throwing me out of the pub! Now, regardless of weather my drink was really spiked or not, it was handled terribly. I am insulted that I was accused of theft and lying. The security man did not want to listen to a word I said, despite me trying to say that I believe my drink was spiked. The free drink given to keep was offered by the barman, not asked from myself.

After the humiliation in front of my work colleagues and not given the chance to explain myself to security, I had to leave. I am fuming and will NOT be returning. To those who read this, please be careful and stay safe!

Double review for Gerry. 10 stars! Superbowl and Irish Coffee
Feb 2020 • Couples
First up, went to Waxy's for lovely Irish coffee with my partner and we both really enjoyed it. Gerry served us and made us feel really welcome and the coffee was delicious. I also saw that they were doing a Superbowl event on the night of the big final. Booked it no problem on line and sure enough when I arrived (directly after a long work shift) I was checked off the list and got my tags for my beer and food (one portion/glass) and Gerry was there again that night. And the night went very well too. Gerry stopped for a chat about the game. I supported the Kansas Chiefs and... they won! A great night! Thanks Gerry and all the team. céad míle fáilte as we Irish say. Grand so!

Fun atmosphere
Jan 2020
We wanted to meet family for pre-theatre drinks, and Waxy O'Connor's was just down the road from the theatre. The drinks were reasonably priced, and the food very good. A fun atmosphere, with friendly, cheerful staff.

Cool Place- Great Service
Jan 2020
This hidden gem sits right off the busy section of Piccadilly Circus. Huge bar inside with great service. If you're lucky, you'll meet a bartender by the name of Veronica. She's Italian and just the sweetest thing. She was helpful with tourist information and a good conversation. Waxxy's is lucky to have her.
