I've said it all in the title really. It's a place that thinks it is the dog's nuts but forgets that it is situated in Farnborough and not to next to Harrods in London.
The beer is awful with no major brands except from some terrible Czech beer that I've never heard of with not much change out out of a fiver for the privilege. Cocktails again are ridiculously over-priced and taste horrendous. I don't mind paying over the odds in these sorts of places but honestly..don't bother.
The staff are too young and rude, especially behind the 'sky bar' which looks more like you've entered a lap dancing club. It's very dark and dinghy and just fairly uncomfortable all round really.
I seriously WOULD NOT bother coming here. You will be severely DISAPPOINTED. Didn't stay here so I can only vouch for the bars - there is another one on the bottom floor but you can only go in it sometimes.
Pointless doormen/bouncers at the entrance are also very annoying and look at you like you are the crap on their shoe when you walk in.
