We used to drink here 20 years ago and walking into the downstairs bar it has not changed at all, band playing, good atmosphere etc. Went upstairs and there's another bar with a snug dining area. The currrent chef has only been there for a...More

We visited early on just for drinks; so I am not sure about the food. Great place to go for live music shows which I think were scheduled every day on a board above the bar. It was busy bustling and noisy.

Popped in for a couple of drinks and felt it was somewhere I would love to go back to. Good music and also good value drink prices.

Can't believe it's taken us so long to find this hidden Gem. We love quirky places with lots of character. Having been to Egypt myself a few times, it brought back happy memories. Such a shame so few people know about it, as it's upstairs...More

This lovely little restaurant is tucked upstairs (and quite seperate from) the Blues Bar, just a few steps down the hill from Betty's. It's a smashing place with a small fresh menu serving delicious falafel, dips, stuffed vine leaves etc. It's a great choice for...More
