Not All Bar One, instead now part of the Slug and Lettuce chain. Modern, swish, pleasant surroundings with plenty of natural light. Bar staff are second rate, more like the sort you would expect in a down market chain like the Goose. So don't be surprised if they have an attitude. Decent selection of draft lagers including Hoegarrden. On a Saturday night they have a D.J. Expensive, don't expect to pay under £3.50 per pint. Customers seem well behaved.

I cant stand this place!! went for a friends 25th birthday at his request. Its full of prettyboy executives in their business suits walking around thinking they are Donald Trump. Wayyy overpriced drinks. Rude bar staff. This is simply one of the few places in Croydon people go to to "be seen" so consequently the clientele and staff including the door staff are typically snobby.

The food was fairly decent to be honest and drinks were not bad but either but still overpriced.

Avoid! unless your one of these socialites who hangs around these types of "trendy" places then you'll love it.

The previous commentator has rather stolen my thunder as he has covered all the relevant points that should be borne in mind about this establishment and the thousands of its kind across the nation. Bland, over-priced, and formulaic, one really could be anywhere once inside (perhaps this is considered a plus for folk who'd rather forget they were in Croydon but usually this is not a positive trait). Yet, it is surprisingly well-subscribed by people who presumably prefer a safe and characterless environment for their eating and drinking.

No real ale of course; the Pride is keg only and as one of the previous visitors noted is only there as a token gesture. The draught lager selection at least isn't confined to the ubiquitous ersatz British brands, and sometimes a more interesting and dare I say it flavoursome imported offering appears. But this is of little interest to an ale man. The saving grace is perhaps the fridge, as it does contain a couple of passable bottled ales - namely Innis & Gunn and Worthington White Shield, thanks to which I have been able to endure if not enjoy the various leaving dos that silly colleagues insist on holding at this venue!

I should also say the food isn't too bad, and the wine selection while not unusual is quite diverse. But neither represent value for money and the sterile environment makes for a pretty anodine experience whatever is in your glass.

I can't stand this type of fancy wine bar, but the frequency with which I seem to bump into them all over the country suggests that there is clearly a large number of people who love this sort of bland drinking experience.
Basically stripped of anything that makes a pub interesting and with the music turned to a level which rules out any form of conversation, the only appeal for me is from the decent beer selection, which covers some well-known and slightly more obscure European lagers. Unfortunately they attact a hyper-inflated price tag, and as such the bar tends to be filled with preening executive types arguing about who has the biggest wad.
Best avoided unless you're the kind of person who likes this sort of night out, in which case, you probably don't need this website to tell you where to drink.

Let's be honest, this is not a pub, it's a bar. Don't expect the London Pride to be good because they only put it there to keep the non lager drinkers happy, they have no idea how to keep it and it's frozen to death.

That said, they do a good range of continental lagers and wines, the food is as good as you should reasonably expect from such a place, the prices keep the worst of Croydon's chavs out. That said, I had my wallet nicked while in here about 18 months ago!

The staff are friendly, attentive and work very hard at busy times and as Croydon bars go, this is one of the better ones.

The biggest down side is the noise. It really is very loud so be prepared for an evening of shouting.
