Disgusting, disappointing & upsetting with the staff in this place. Myself & friends were told to leave because they were gay & foreign. Racist & Homophobic! Not to mention very overpriced. ill never go to this place again!

Very very rude barman. French guy who spent the entire stay shouting and being overly brash and mouthy. All in attendance agreed... extremely unprofessional and just plain unpleasant.

Had a drink here at the weekend. It's always lovely and it was nice and cool on a very warm day. They've recently added a new bar out the back called The Rag Trader and I can't wait to go back and try it.

It helps when you get a waiter that speaks your native language. It's not about words, you could easily order in English, but him being from the same corner of Europe means quick and easy hand gestures communication across the room.

Stumble across this bar on a stroll around the city. Such a big venue that has a home, pub and bar feel for those who like the choice! There was an area laid out like a living room which was so cozy. The bar staff...More
