“The downstairs bar itself is reasonably good, boasting some interesting drink options (like the American Blue Moon wheat beer). Fairly laid back vibe, cheery service, enjoyable music. The real bonus though is the roof terrace right at the top. A tiny little alfresco space, best used before about 7pm in the summer to make the most of the sunshine. I went here on a first date, had a great time, and we're looking at a second date. It must have done the trick then.”

“I went to the driver for a large function. each floor has it's own kind of vibe, but is pretty basic nevertheless. cocktails were a total rip off of 9pounds each time. a highlight though was the rooftop - a bonus for summer time. absolutely gorgeous. I was unable to get a cocktail till i went to the top floor (not the rooftop) and even then it was expensive and they didnt have all the ingredients. it's pretty average all up.”

Loved

"Very rude management. Asked to leave the table when there were no queues. Then the manager was very arrogant and told us that if we wanted to leave a negative review we could do so. Poor customer service..." Which venue is this?
