Cheap as chips but none too pretty. Can't actually fault the place to be honest. For a pub in the middle of the City it's perfect

Only been here once and cant say ill be back in a hurry. Always seems to be busy like when i walk past. One bar you can say you have been but thats it.

Yea we would say lots of these coments are so true.My partener was well aware of the garters repretation and out of the blue one day said "lets go into the garter for one"! and here we are a year on using it as our local.We go out and about but always make the Garter our last stop of the night.The Karaoki could do with up dating but at the end of the day its given us and continues to give us hours of fun.As we have got to know the characters that get in there we have realised that these frightening looking folk are actually good genuine people.The staff are all so friendly and the bouncer is a very loveable lad.(good at his job though)Yes theres trouble ,but its every where, in the Garter its sorted nearly before it begins,thats what I like most about it.Karaoki?we have enjoyed every minute of it.Just last weekend we entered a silly stars in your eye in there!!quess what ? we won!thats Rene and Renarto for you LOL.Dont laugh it won us �50.So there you go thats my opinion of the Garter.My advice is if you like to meet genuine people who are not there to judge you,who you can learn so much from about the city pubs ect then make the effort to go in and return,join in the grim karaoki and look for Billy and Sue .

The grim karaoke at 10,000dB is enough to send me running past!

Can't actually believe that my pint was decent given I paid virtually nothing for it, and enjoyed not getting killed by anyone. The non-stop coverage of the racing was a delight, and definitely worth going in just to say you've come out alive...

Obviously really poor. Why you would visit here when you literally have hundreds of other pubs in the square mile you're already stood in amazes me. I guess so that you can watch the racing with other like-minded human waste, sipping on a bad pint of scotch or ex or whatever gloop you drink because it's the cheapest pint in the pub. Probably the least terrible out of the stretch of shite that is this end of town, but that's just like choosing which one of six dog turds you'd rather stamp on in your slippers.

A pub of the old school. Cheap ale.

The scariest pub i have been in-even at lunchtime it puts the fear of God into me, and that's just if I walk past it!

Very good beer at a generous price. However, does tend to be smoky and is often too crowded.
