“Happy hour drinks”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We popped into here for a few drinks, had such a good time we stayed for a few more! We were there for happy hour and seems this was a very good choice as their were a lot of people, live music and everyone was having a good time. There was a good mix of people, plenty of people eating as well, the food looked good but we were just there for the cocktails which went down very well. We did pass by much later at night and the queue to get in was huge. Well worth popping into

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Came here with a group of friends for lunch on Sunday. We all had the burrito + mojito deal for £10 and thought it was good value and very tasty. The only downside was a misunderstanding over paying for a dessert which we thought was on the house (to make up for one of the desserts not being available). It would have been very good PR for them to admit that there had been a mistake and give us the dessert for free, instead of arguing about it. So in the event, instead of leaving with a really positive impression, we left a bit grumpy. However, we would definitely go back as it was a great place.

“Great cocktails!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Popped in for a drink prior to watching a film at the AMC as our usual pre-film venue had closed down. Got through a few cocktails while we were in there and since it was happy hour (2-4-1 on any cocktail) it was extremely good value. Didn't try the food but look forward to returning and giving it a try. Looks like you need to book in advance though, we arrived shortly after 5 and before we had finished our first drink all the tables were either taken or reserved. Highly recommend the Nuclear Daiquiri!

“Terrible door staff, badly managed!”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Came to the bar for the second time at the end of March to celebrate a friend's birthday but half of our party were turned away by an extremely rude member of the door staff. His reasoning was that we were too drunk which was not the case! Tried to reason/question why he felt we were too drunk but to no avail. Promptly ignored and shunned away. Treated like children instead of a respectable group of girls looking for a nice night and a few cocktails. This was a deliberate attempt at filtering who he wanted in the bar, in my opinion. Definitely wouldn't recommend to anyone again. Disappointing.
