“Cool place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

Very cool. Nice and lively place. Love it..pizzas are great.

Live bands can be a bit hit or miss but isn't that just the nature of live music. Some you love some you don't.

“Great place, great food at a great price, great waitress”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

Thursday night 6pm and not too crowded, really good balance of sound but could still hear yourself speak.
Food was not only very good but for the money absolutely outstanding.
Wine was excellent and again reasonably priced.
Basic surroundings, clean and tidy - with a really good vibe to the place.
The waitress was outstanding, perfect balance of attentivenesss without being pushy, nothing was any problem and she came across as being totally genuine and friendly. (a huge asset to the place)
Will defo be going back here quite a lot

“Not for the faint hearted.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Stayed in adjacent hotel,and,after hearing the loud music decided to call in for a drink. Should have known better when the doorman quipped "Might not be to your taste". Ever one for a challenge and a rebuke about deciding my own music tastes went in anyway. Basically a basement student club. Drink spills every where , tables , floor , bar etc. Loud thumping music playing (Endlessly) , and not at Student prices. The young ones appeared to love it.

“great pizzas ,good music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

Two pizzas for nine quid , bargain but the thing is they taste great with a thin crunchy base just perfectly done.
We went in on Monday and the other special is pasta for three pounds.
The macaroni was actually very cheesy and also tasted great.

Cheap food with good live music and a great atmosphere,what are you waiting for.
