Description: We're more than a bar-club. You'll know what we mean when you come down. Within the confines of our walls, you can find food and drink, of course. You can look further if you like. Then you'll see all our clubs, gigs and events - anything from a weekly alternative pub quiz (hosted by possibly two of the funniest people ever) to an open platform performance evening, followed swiftly by our Thursday, Friday & Saturday night clubs...super fun. Open until 3am every night, you've got all the time in the world.

“Nice pub, shame about the food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

Very nice interior, very cosy, with a Sega in the corner if you fancy a game!

The first male bartender was lovely, very friendly and funny.

Later we ordered food (a beer and a burger for £5). Asked the less friendly female bartender for the order, had to wait until she served someone else before asking again for our drinks? Not a lot of common sense and not very attentive. Our table was only cleared of the previous persons plates and glasses after we ordered, but it was never wiped down so we had to eat our lunch of a sticky and crummy table!

Burgers are very weird, very tomatoey and sweet.

Overall, a nice place for a drink, staff are a bit hit and miss and the food is lacking.
