    Fantastic place for a drink and maybe a game of ping pong / table tennis. Great fun, decent prices. There's also a private room with two dedicated tables and a bar - perfect for work parties.

    So much fun with a big group or a couple of friends. Great music and wonderful cocktails that are reasonably priced. Fun staff. Be sure to book in advance!

    The concept works well and the table tennis is backed up with good cocktails and fine pizzas. Booking is essential and time goes quickly, but there's a bar area where you can stay & watch afterwards.

    Love it! The best ping pong bar in town! Arrive late and it all turns phosphorescent, really cool atmosphere. Commercial remixes is the music, full of rhythm, perfect to bounce those balls! 😉

    They have guest wifi if you supply some of your details. Loads of ping pong tables. Good food and cocktail menu. Private room for all types of events with own ping pong tables

    I've worked around the corner from here for over a year and never knew of this really cool place. The pizzas are to die for, though they cost an arm and a leg @ £15 each

    Well if you want the best cocktail off the menu, I highly recommend Daiquiri. Simply the best thing I ever tasted.

    Fun place! But little too expensive 30 min = 10£ for the ping pong table, and the cider gets more expensive with the different flavors, like the pear cider would be expensive than the apple one.

    So much fun, great atmosphere and amazing staff. Can get busy, so make sure to book in advance especially for large groups.

    Book in advance. There is plenty of space to move around and play, and tasty food, which makes it quite popular and busy.

    Ping pong and booze what is not to like. Can hire out the downstairs as well for corporate stuff. Had a wickes company night there. Topped off with karaoke

    Hold down the left trigger button before you hit the ball to power up, or use the right wiggle stick to add spin. But don't try both at the same time unless you have a skill level of at least 85!

    Noisy and needing early booking to play ping-pong. Good for drinking and great pizzas.

    You gotta like your pong to appreciate this place. Good fries/chips and ok cocktails but (sadly) you'll have to take your beer pong game elsewhere.

    Underground ping pong at the very place the game was created. Strangely American in food and beers, but a fun place for a group night out.

    If Michael is working, buy the man a drink. He's the best ping pong host in London by a country mile.

    Abit pricey for just half an hours worth of pingpong when there are free pingpong tables around london!

    Had a great night because of the company but the place is a nightmare!! Overly crowded and quite noisy. Food options are average. Beer is good, wine is terrible!

    Expensive drinks with mediocre wait staff in the private room. Seems like a cute idea until you realise what drunk people and ping pong balls equal.
