I had no idea. Blindly followed the Cask Marque App in. Got a tick.

Not my sort of place. The beer was terrible.

A decent, laid back gay pub with two cask ales available; the ale I tried was well kept.

I have been coming to the Q for some 7 years now and have made alot of friends there old and young and find this a very friendly place.Yes,its cruisy but it makes it exciting / interesting. Alot of guys from around the world come here because of its friendly reputation. Most of the staff are good at their job and friendly.Ok you get the odd one who doesnt want to be there but what ive seen he doesnt stay long. On a Friday night and especially a saturday it does get very busy.During the daytime up till i would say 8.30/9 alot of str8 clientele frequent the place.

The Quebec is unique as a bar that is a comfortable environment not only for older gay men but also for that large percentage of gay men who do not care to adhere to the ‘twink’ or ‘bear’ look.

The Quebec has been a gay bar since before these obnoxious stereotypes inflicted themselves on the scene and will probably still be there when they are forgotten. So it has a varied clientele and a lot less attitude among the patrons than just about any other gay bar around.

Some of the bar staff can be a little obnoxious as they are generally younger Eastern European boys hired for their beauty. Like any cross section of humanity, some let that go to their head, while others are unchanged by it and are nice lads who do a good job.

With regards to other comments, it is inevitable that there will be rent boys and young foreign men looking for sugar daddies in a bar like the Quebec. Older men are more financially well-heeled so they represent a good market for rentboys. And young English men do not have visa worries, so they don’t need to find an older husband. But foreign boys do need a visa and I can't see that there's anything wrong with them trying to find someone to help them with that issue. If you don’t like that, write to the Home Office or the IMF; don’t blame the Quebec.

The DJing ... well it's indifferent, the karaoke on the one time I went to it, was awful – the guy tried hard, but downstairs is just the wrong place for it – and the drag and other acts can be fun.

The Quebec is what it is. Within its limitations, ie expensive wine, no great beers -though they finally gone a step in that direction by getting Abbots on tap, and the occasional look from an 80yo with a face like a half sucked mango ... it's OK.

I hadn't been here for a long time and was shocked when I returned! The place looks very tired now. It was like stepping into the 1950's. Staff were not very friendly at all. The 'lady' behind the bar was quite simply being a little b1tch.
As it was in the afternoon and I hadn't had lunch yet I asked for something to eat. That was my biggest mistake, apart from entering this god forsaken place...
It took 20 minutes for the food to arrive and it was simply inedible. I don't have high expectations, I know pub food is supposed to be simple, but this was the worst I ever had. It looked as if it had been run over by a lorry and tasted even worse than the tyres would. I couldn't chew the beef, it was far too dry.
I will certainly never come here again and suggest you do the same.
