We visit the Pulse bar twice weekly and I must say their Chicken Korma is delicious. My husband loves the ham & parsley sauce! We go there for a snack and the bar man David is very nice and friendly. There were two young boys training to serve and they were very nice. The service is quick and professional. Would... More

Chilled out bar and eaterie during the day, lively, clubby atmosphere at night. Music was mixed as were the crowd, half gay, half straight, cheap drinks, good atmosphere. Outside space too.

Just came for food and a few afternoon drinks. Hannah was amazing. She really took care of us! She brought our drinks to us and everything. Brilliant service.

Where can you get a meal in the centre of a City for £2.99 and 30p for a drink? PULSE. Well cooked with good service and great choice of food and a full bar.

Not what it used to be at all, used to come here all the time. Now however the staff change every other month and the gas in the beer is very disappointing, not mentioning the prices.

Happened upon this place on a wander from our hotel. With cheap fraught lagers and a good section of outside seating space for us and our pup we had a thoroughly enjoyable few pints each evening before venturing elsewhere for food. Would recommend this place...had some cracking tunes playing too!
