The rudest staff you will ever meet. The bouncers especially are very unaccommodating. They are very clearly on a power trip & treat everyone like they are less than them. I've never met staff so rude. It's a shame because the venue has great potential but the staff would turn anyone off going.

Service very Slow, children only welcome up until 6pm even though they serve food until 6pm and welcome families-- figure that one out. Rude and aggressive evening manager on Sat the 18th of March. Would not recommend. Much better and friendlier places nearby.

Visited on a Tuesday night so it's to be expected that it was quite till 23: 00hrs. Within 10 mins the joint was busy. Live band were very good. Good dance music. Cocktails weren't good, packed with ice and coke and I didn't like having to pay for my drink before being served it. Loads of students from UL &... More

A group of us stopped in for lunch and were treated to a better than average carver and a selection of made to order sandwiches and wraps. All of which went down well with no complaints.

Nothing to like here. Food during the day is average at best, staff leave a lot to be desired. As a night spot it has to be the worst in town, overpriced entry fee, overpriced drinks, the most ignorant pigs possible employed as door staff, famous only for the disgusting attitude of the door staff. Avoid if you want to... More
