Out with a friend on a Friday night, great fun lively location. Loads of table tennis upstairs and a private room to hire downstairs.
The beer is a bit mediocre, didn't try the food though.
Lots of variations of beer pong if actual table tennis doesn't seem exciting enough. The staff on the table tennis reception were really nice and helpful.
The big drawback was the rudest bar person I have ever encountered on the upstairs bar. Initially she just scowled at us, without speaking. Then snapped at us, "you want something or you just gonna stare", which might be the worst greeting ever from a customer service person. After we ordered, she poured the beer badly, not quite to the top and flat, and placed them down further along the bar than where we were and stood near to us. So, we paid her, with her making no eye contact at all since the initial glaring. Upon my calling her to the beers to point out which is which, she interrupted me, scowled and filled up the badly pour beers. Then, again, I asked which beer was which and she scowled and said they were in branded glasses, which to be fair one was, the first one I looked at wasn’t, so I didn’t know.
Despite actually liking the venue I would never return here on fear of this woman’s attitude and anger staring curdling the mediocre beer.
Love this place. Always greeted with that warm smile by Bee, the host - Thursday are amazing here. The music is fab. The staff are great. Food is good.
Fun staff, great pizza and delicious cocktails. Play ping pong during your lunch break or have a little dance on Friday night, the DJs are brilliant! Love this place!
Always to lively. People at the door are friendly. Food is nice. DJ spins well. It's a venue I'd certainly return to!!!
