I've been to this place a few times - the most recent was on a night out with some old friends last Saturday.
It's okay. Just okay, for me. The drinks are good, although they should be for what you pay for them. They do a happy hour fairly regularly, but unfortunately we had missed it. They also stock a massive variety of alcohol, so if your tipple of choice is a Cuban, 5 year old, oak...more

Fun atmosphere, tasty food, nice service. And, definitely a London crowd....more
