Visited here a few times over the weekend. Saturday afternoon was very very busy. But large area outside with heaters too. Good retro music selection and great pictures on the walls. Drinks reasonably priced and bar staff friendly enough. My only disappointment on my visit...More

This cramped bar was a bit of a squeeze, hence the title. It seems to be aimed at a contemporary crowd with no regard for comfort, but then that might be to emulate the joys of travelling on the tube. When you actually get through...More

Had a nice evening here for a friend’s birthday. It’s a two level bar but quite small. Fun decor. It was a hot day so really nice that it’s got air conditioning, which is England isn’t that common. Reasonable prices for central London.

Whilst this bar is a little off the beaten track I have always enjoyed my visits here. Prices are reasonable and it doesn’t scream “alco pop horror” like other gay bars. Tends to be more relaxed with a slower pace. A strong viable alternative to...More

I watched in disbelief as a couple were asked to leave immediately because the husband dropped a glass!

I love this bar, don't get me wrong. I visit regularly to meet up with friends, and this probably won't change, simply because it's a good place for us to meet up from time to time. However. I've NEVER had decent service there. On one...More

Fantastic bar and the best music ever (all retro of course!). Friendly and efficient bar staff, lovely punters and a door man who smiled all night. I think the landlady is called Lesley and she was the perfect host, even made me a cup of...More

I've not been here for a while but thought I'd pop in. The barman who was Nelson couldn't even be bothered to give a hello, smile or thank you. And it wasn't even busy. The owner (I think) who is a bit more like a...More

What a great central London bar in a great location. I liked the decor and the reasonably priced drinks, but the best thing was the brilliant friendly and professional staff! Highly recommended.....
