“Good music!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

We turned up late, not really expecting much. Love free entry - though a mission to get in with security!

The drinks were average, but the wine - £4 a glass, £7 for the bottle - amazing and sweetly the bar maid told us about this little bargain!

Music was worthwhile though, had a little boogie before closing which was 00.00!? Wish it had a later closing!

“Security incredibly rude and treating you like an american cop”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

5 stars for the vibe inside
0 for the managment: bouncers are terribly rude and want to show their superiority by making you do non-sense things: going all around to join the queue...while there is no queue..., shouting at you and treat you like dirt. one of our friend had an ID with no hologram on it, could not get in because did not fit in their machine apparently.
Not worth it just to get in.

“Good value, good quality, pub food, friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

Our first visit to Shepherds Bush, for a gig at the O2 Empire, we wanted to grab something quick and simple to eat, late afternoon time, and as it was only across the road from our hotel we thought we'd try Walkabout.
We ordered the Kangaroo Burger £8 and the Classic Beef Burger £5.50, both came with a good sized portion of chips, onion rings, side salad and coleslaw. Both of the burgers were really tasty, good quality, and we were stuffed afterwards.
Also - good to remember, if you're going to a gig at the Empire, they offer you 20% off your food order, saves a few quid!

“goin work on monday and looking for fun? place to be...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

if you just wanna have some good fun, value for money and be a bit crazy, thats the place to be. it closes at 11pm anyways, you can catch the last tube and you are not forced to hang around late night. if you dont mind getting dirty and deal with some funny people, you really should experience it once. you can wear whatever you want, no one really cares.
