Got 4 cocktails all tasted great with a fair amount of alcohol in which were £3 each as I think was students night (Thursday). Staff were nice enough and photographer was good. Would definitely go there again! Stay away from Filthy McNasty's!

This "student bar" has recently had an over due revamp. Yet with its poor finish and design it will remain a student "dive". The parkay floor is lifting, the front door as you enter was covered in saw dust, the walls thick with dust from...More
