Was treated very poorly by the manger and door staff. Be careful they turn away people for no apparent reason.

Extremely rude door staff. Despite friendly manner we were rudely pushed aside and subsequently turned away. Advise to go somewhere friendlier - plenty of places on London at this time of year!
