Impossible to get the sound turned on to watch sport, even though it was on the screen. Awful staff claimed volume only goes up to 10/100 and were more interested in listening to music for themselves than providing what customers want.

The staff seem to have no wider awareness of what is going on in the bar and the service is consistently terrible. I would strongly recommend avoiding the bar for everything other than a quick pint.

Could be a nice pub! But the security woman completely confrontational and aggressive. Stayed for one drink, only because we paid for it. Witness this security woman being verbally confrontational, agressive body language.. Finished our drinks and left! Scary place.

Found this place wondering around looking for somewhere open. What a find. Full of mental people all wanting to have a good time! Good djs, and decent enough drink prices. Definately a late place!
