could have been great but they have stuffed this one up good and proper. No beer on tap when I went, lousy waitress too. No wonder they have sold, or changing name, so I hear..

This is a truly dreadful place. 4 of us had the misfortune to try it out on Friday night for a few beers and a bite to eat. Never again. The place is filthy with dirty tables covered in spilt drinks, empty glasses and full ashtrays not to mention the dreadful staff and beer.

Once we had cleared and wiped a table (the 6 staff were too busy talking to eachother behind the bar to do it themselves although they did give us a cloth so that we could do it) we discovered that the Stella we had been served was flat. I complained to one of the moody bar staff who told me (without even the hint of a smile)that it tasted ok to her and poured another pint which was also flat but also apparently tasted ok, not to me, I settled on a bottle.

We didn't risk the food, frankly we couldn't get out of there quick enough. No redeeming features whatsoever. Don't be fooled by their flash website, the place is a hole. Better to try the Boom bar down the road, where we ended up - a world apart.

Not one of the best... Although I found the punters to be reasonable people, it's overly noisy and overly pricey.

The worst thing that happened to me though is that they refused to sell pints after about 10.30. They lied to me and another couple of punters, saying they'd "run out" of every draught beer all at once. Bloody cheek!
I told them that if they would demonstrate the taps not working then I would buy a bottle but instead they refused service and chucked me out!

So, there's no way on Earth I'd go back after service like that, which is a pity because it was ok up to that point.

Hmmm, not anymore really!!
Negs: SOULESS. Small, not enough seating, often a party (hence making it smaller still)quite a few spackers, mutants, geeeezers and tarts. Not really an atmos...unless your about 20 and gaggin for it.

Pos: LOVELY cocktails...especially Mojitos which smack you up a treat!! Makes a change from 'themed' places and the high thats about it.

So if you fancy getting slaughtered on well made cocktails (a rarity!) before going somewhere to have grea it.

I did love this place but went on tuesday and it was quiet, because of this when you order a drink they bring it the 2 whole meters to your table for you very nice of them except it costs you loads extra. they dont even ask they tell you.
other than that they've stopped doing the almighty fondue that used to make this place rock, Come on common rooms get your arse in gear and make good again.
