Worst place I've ever been. Currently watching the world cup here and the service is terrible, the security guard was pretty rude when we entered. Ordered the nachos and it looks like they gave us the leftovers from another table that wasn't able to finish....More

Had to line up for an empty venue, and only let us in 15 mins before a world cUp game, minimum $25 spend per person, no seats, huge line, rude security. Wouldn't bother, lots of pubs nearby super lovely with bigger screens.

Nice sports bar with cosy booths equipped with individual screens, Good for occasion out with friends or family. Reasonable priced drinks, and very good (and plentiful) food. Mondays have chicken wings specials!

To be honest, I'm not a football fan but I still enjoyed the atmosphere at The Football Factory. The beer was reasonably priced, the food was made fresh and was delicious and the service was outstanding. I'll be back for sure!

Its all about the football. They could work on their food and service (wasn't bad but understaffed) But if your like me, all you care about is finding a place that guarantees to be showing the match. They seem to subscribe to all major soccer...More
