Met up here to catch up with old friends. Made good use of the happy hour and had a good selection of small plates which we shared between us followed by pizza. Nice atmosphere and good music. Service was sadly slow with inattentive staff when we were there. Would return ....

The ladies bathroom downstairs were just vile, they'd not been cleaned! The whole venue is... More

I wish the same could be said of the bar staff, particularly one female bartender in particular. I went to get drinks from the bar in the interval, and another customer came up beside me but...

We went to the Sway as a part of the deal with the Mama Mia theater tickets. Seems to be a popular night club, doubling up as a restaurant. Also popular with large office groups. The Pizzas were very tasty ( and large). On a stand alone basis, it may not be value for money. The Spanish girl who served... More
