Lovely bar with a wide range of ales. We had a really nice evening drinking and watching the football here.

They never fail to destroy an establishments good name and reputation. Throwing teenage boys and girls out on to the street because of some perceived indiscretions with no thought to the kids well being or safety .The kids paid £15 to be with their friends over Easter only to be treated like dirt by Bouncers in The Bot . A place to be avoided when these Door Staff are on . Please advise your young people to avoid this place .If you own this place get rid of the Bouncers .

An iconic watering hole in its day. Visited twice on a Friday afternoon and evening and it was near empty? Strange how places change. Plus only cheap vodka brand for sale!

Visited the Bot last night (Friday) and was so surprised to see the place relatively empty. The drinks menu is very good but much of the bar feels tired and in need of a refurb. More people are drawn elsewhere in the city but you can't help feel that with the right refit and marketing the Bot would be back to it's best.
