As its right next to the Excel it is aimed at post exhibition crowds. It manages to achieve "good pub" levels of food and service but somehow something seems to be missing. I think it's because the pub is massive and has so much space that it looks like a huge room with chairs and tables rather than having a... More

Probably the worse breakfast I've ever had. I could count the number of beans in the pot. The mushrooms are either off or they put vinegar in it and the bacon is harder than Bruce Willis. The butter was left on the hot plate so it was not spreadable. The sausage was cold but it's the best tasting part.

I was staying at the ibis nearby for one day/night and came here three times that day for drinks, dinner and then last orders after returning from the o2. Very attractive bar, decor is nice and both indoors and outside are clean and attractive. Service was excellent, staff were good and the barmaid remembered our order each time. Good atmosphere...

Hi Mary, We do screen all major football matches on our many TV screens across our venue. This is very popular with our locals and regulars, and it does mean that on a match day, we are often very busy.

After hours on our feet attending an Exhibition it was nice to walk into a Pub that had good, friendly staff and ice cold beer. Nice to just kick back and relax. But would definitely only go for business.
