Never been made to feel so unwelcome as a woman in a gay bar. Don’t understand the segregation in this day and age. Won the bingo and someone actually said “You know this is a gay bar don’t you?” As if we weren’t entitled to...More

This pub looked welcoming before we went in but no one spoke to us and the beer was appalling. Couldn’t manage more than a few mouthfuls before we left in disgust

Old fashioned pub that happens to be a gay pub. Good beer. Great for after work and comfy seating upstairs that most people don't know about so you can sit quietly. Great staff.

This gay bar attracts bears and their admirers, bigger, hairy guys and those that like them. I thought it was friendly, a little cruisy and easy to meet and talk with other guys. Even on a busy night bartenders were friendly and hospitable and quick...More
