  • Richard F.

    Note - this gay bar closed in July and is undergoing refurbishment. It is believed it will re- open as an establishment not aimed at gay clientele. A sad loss to the gay community

    Nice bar. Friendly atmosphere. Wi-fi available but only upstairs. One of those extender plugs downstairs would solve that.

    Free lube and johnnies in the jar in the corner on wall to the toilets!

    A really friendly place to meet people and a place I'd come back to again. The music was good and I'd recommend it to anyone.

    £2.50 a pint can't go wrong

    The drag queen was playing shite music off YouTube and I've felt a better atmosphere at a funeral. It doesn't feel like a city gay bar at all.
