    Stop here after your Oxford Street shopping for a few drinks before heading underground! Nice food too!

    Nice place, that's why we come here after work every Friday. But be careful, today they tried to pull my leg with the bill!! Don't know if we'll come back.

    Doh't ask for chickpeas and spicy bean dip with flatbread and crudités (v) £3.75. They don't give crudités, it's just red hummus with some weird oil (not olive oil) :-(

    Buy 2 large glasses of wine and the rest of the bottle is free. What could be fairer than that?

    Extra seating downstairs was empty on the busiest lunchtime shopping on Oxford Street. Good pint and burger deal for £10 — for £11 you can get two burger fillets. Bargain!

    They are full of shit. We booked an area for a birthday 5 days in advance and turned up on the day to find they had ignored the booking and left us to stand around plus drinks are overtly expensive
