Nice and sleazy does great

My 2nd visit here, a relaxed, dark atmosphere, various rock from The juke book, meeting my nephews for a catch up.
I arrived early, and hadn't eaten so orderd some ribs, which included a chilli pot and corn on a cob, accompanied by a camden IPA. The ribs were unexpectedly fantastic, best ribs for years, so very happy bunny. Once my nephew turned up the beer flowed.
I really like the red, it's chilled and atmospheric, it's not remotely pretentious, just a good old rock joint.
The ribs could have done with a bit of salad is the only thing, but a culinary delight otherwise. Beers pretty tasty too.

Nice whiskeys and a very cool vibe. I played a gig here a few days ago. It was a good experience. Hope to go there again.

Awesome vibes here! We were able to have an awesome night here and reminisce about the older rock pubs that used to be around! Best night we've had in a while

Really good live music bar
Oct 2018 • Solo
atmospheric music bar, playing host to some really top notch bands if you like it loud and heavy. travelled from sw london not expecting much and was pleasantly surprised. drinks at reasonable prices and a warm welcome from the bar staff.will be going again depending on whose playing.

Fab music - reminiscent of my youth!

Went here for a celebration after a graduation at the nearby Uni. Great wings in fact the peanut butter and jelly wings are heavenly. Very dark and moody and atmospheric and just like I remember bars in 1985 my heyday! Great music. I love it here!

Too Petty Night
Nov 2017
I visited The Big Red in November 2017 to see the Tom Petty tribute. It's easy to find, you can't miss the big red neon sign. It's well set out around the large bar in t :) e centre. There are lots of booths and tables to sit at plus standing room at the front to watch the band. The food looked gorgeous and I regret having a sandwich earlier as I'd have preferred to eat at the bar. There's a great atmosphere and the door men very kindly gave me a number for a local taxi firm when I became separated from my friends. I'd definitely go again but I'd book into a hotel closer to the venue next time.

Most bizarre thing that's ever happened to me, Very bad customer service!! (keep reading to be amused why)
Jan 2018 • Friends
Had a vey nasty experience last weekend at the Big Red. I am going to quickly explained what happened so maybe I will be saving someone a nasty trip to this UGLY pub.

Well I had a very good night overall until me and my friends decided to go to the Big Red for a last round, so everything was good and all untill me and one friend decided to go for a smoke outside.
We accidentally used the wrong exit (FIRE EXIT). We were drunk at that point so we didn't realised that was a fire or emergeny exit. Well we were not allowed back in by the bouncers and they didn't even let me in to get my stuff to go home (probably suable for theft, retention of my property).
Until I was able to talk some sense into the door bouncer and they allowed me in escorted (like if I am some sort of criminal) to let my friends know I've been kicked out and get my stuff to go home. My boyfriend was inside with a freshly bought beer so he decided to come outside with me, they took his beer (again some sort of theft, because that beer was alredy paid so the least they can do is let him drink it) because you're not allowed to drink outside. Yes we know you are not allowed to drink outside but you should let your customer drink their beer inside if they've already spent money on it. Overall the most ridicoulous thing that's ever happened to me, as I have never been kicked out of a pub before, let alone for a reason like that one. I'm not a troubling person, I don' get into fights or piss people off. I tried to talk sense into the bouncer that was escorting me to get my stuff but he was just following orders... so I guess if his boss tells him to jump out of a bridge everytime someone uses the wrong exit he will. NOTE FOR THE OWNER OR WHOEVER RUNS THE PUB: I am not the only one that has had a nasty experience for nonsense like that with your bouncers, if you are really behind of these stupid rules, I strongly recomend you re-think your strategy as a business owner. That is no way of treating your customers who choose to go to your pub to spend their money. I am never going back as I don't like being treated like some sort of criminal for making a mistake like that. I would have understood if I was actually causing an altercation or done that on purpose but it wasn't like that. They just ruined a very enjoyable night out with friends for practically no reason.
So thank you Big Red, very kind customer service.
