This image is not of the venue. Awaiting image from venue.

Bar and kitchen with huggable chunky wooden tables, food that's good for a quick snack (burgers, halloumi kebabs, charcuterie platters and so on), and a chatty, unpretentious vibe that makes it a popular spot with the after-work crowd. In summer, the action spills out onto the small beer garden.

If you're looking for a lively night with dancing and some cheesy tunes this is your place. The crowd is a fun, post work lot up for a drink. Staff are really friendly despite it being packed. What I will say is if you're looking for a great place to eat this isn't for you. We had a selection of the starters and platters which were all fine, but they could do so much better. Value for money isn't great - even by central London standards, which is a shame as this is a great little venue. Look out when ordering in December as happy hour is suspended for the month even though the signs outside and the website still advertise it. Overall a really fun party place or for an after work knees up!

Great food and drink at affordable prices. Great service and a nice little outdoor area :)

This is a cool little underground bar just a couple of minutes away from Tottenham Court road and is perfect for after work drinks as it's not too busy or loud until the later part of the evening.

My favourite thing about here was the 'secret garden' which is technically upstairs as the bar is underground. Considering how precious outdoor bar space is for the 5 days of summer that we are blessed with, this is like a little oasis, away from the hustle and bustle of central London.

If you want to dance on old classics on a Friday night without going to a proper club, you've found the perfect place! Really cool unpretentious bar, people are here to have a good time and bringing up the good vibe. Drinks are a bit pricey and entrance is £5 but it is worth it if you go out as a group They also do bookings for big groups for birthdays or else.

When we left the Wheatsheaf (on the other side of the road from this bar) we found this gem of a late bar with a D.J.


I came here on a Saturday evening for a friend's birthday and she had booked an area, for free, which was pretty good for a Sat eve. The happy hour jugs were low quality (though not surprisingly for central London) but my gin and tonic was really decent quality and the bar staff and security were really friendly.

The music was very mainstream and far too loud, given that the dance floor was only one area and the rest were designated tables for groups and couples - presumably for chatting. Or shouting. 

But I find that a common problem in places. I love music and going out but I hate shouting and feel that it doesn't need to burn your ear-drums to make it enjoyable.

I didn't order food, but friends did and portions were pretty generous and, whilst not a foodie destination by any stretch of the imagination, it certainly seemed decent enough on the quality front too.

Overall the kind of thing you'd expect in central London if you're simply wanting to go to a bar with mates and have a good laugh and a boogie and don't mind shouting - which is probably ok if you're young and a little drunk!

I came here on a Friday night looking for a drink but not a raucous night out, and maybe that was the first mistake. In the daytime I feel I could like this place - I am partial to some barrel tables and rustic furnishings and a well stocked whisky bar - but something about the amount of people and cheap cocktails was giving off a suspiciously strong vibe of The Church bar in Clapham. If you don't mind rubbing up against the sweaty bodies of others in a 20-minute bar queue and shouting at the top of your lungs to the person next to you, and if you enjoy cocktails that are 90% juice and cheap wine and have only a tiny amount of liquor, then this place is fine for you. Otherwise, avoid it at all costs on a Friday night. 


Came here on a Friday night after watching the football in a nearby pub and had a great night. The staff were really friendly, despite the place being busy. The DJ was great playing a mix of new tunes and old school hip-hop (even De La Soul got a play). I do like Jack Daniels though and it was a shame they didn't have that - instead they had Jim Beam or Knob Creek which I had to make do with.

I've been going to this place since it opened many years ago. I love the atmosphere in the bar, the wooden tables, the little terrace garden at the back in the summer (or you fancy a smoke). At peak times this place is absolutely jumping with the after work crowd, busy is an understatement. The food is simple and generally bar food of a high calibre, the menu isn't extensive but they keep it simple for a reason, after all, it is a bar. Space is at a premium when busy, if you plan to eat in the evening it's worth booking ahead, especially if you're in a crowd. My favourite time is mid-late afternoon, the lunchtime crowd dissipated, you pretty much get the place to yourself, ensure you get there before they temporarily stop serving food, around 3pm. Great value and pleasant every time. Enjoy.


Great spot for lunch or dinner, great menu and cocktails always a good get of jail choice if your stuck for something right in the heart of the west end. Very reasonable prices

Hidden treasure!

Absolutely love this place, great value for money and an impressive wine list.

Excellent venue for a lunch or dinner from a menu that doesn't cost the earth and all in the heart of Soho.
