Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

Video games and ping-pong are among the distractions at this friendly watering hole

When headed to Kongs, it pays to pack a competitive spirit. If vintage arcade games like 'Street Fighter II' or 'PacMan' aren’t your style, give your wrists a workout on the table football table or don your coolest headband on the table tennis table, where a misplaced shot could end up behind the bar. Don’t get too carried away, though – a new countdown clock helps share out the ping-pong love and dissuades any hogging of the table.

Lagers are not frowned upon here, with an international selection that includes Sierra Nevada from the USA, Affligem from Belgium and Birra Moretti from Italy. Ciders on tap are Thatchers Gold and Symonds.
