I paid with a £20 note for an £8 order at the bar and the bartender gave my change back in coins. I did wonder why he didn't just give me a £10 note but didn't say anything. I counted the change after I left...More

This place was recommended to me as a highlight of East London vibes. Well, the DJ was playing mainstream pieces without any DJ touch you'd expect especially in what was described as a hispter place. The air inside was so humid that I regreted entering...More

Very friendly staff, open until 2am, gets busy after 10( weekends) when they start charging 6 - 7 pounds entrance fee. Mainly man of course but women are welcome too. Drinks ok, not cheap as you are in London. I am not a gay but...More

Attended this pub as it was a venue for a Wotever production, and we werent disappointed. This is a comfortable relaxed space reflecting a typical well used gay pub where women are welcome. However, as it is frequented by mainly men, don't be disappointed by...More

Unlike anything else in London or anywhere else in the world. Lots of LGBTQ babes who welcome everyone with open arms into their warm and friendly little pub. Something on EVERY night without fail that is super entertaining and queer. Highly highly recommend.

Drinks are fine, staff very friendly as is the crowd of men (young and older, very attractive to ordinary, hip and not so hip, queer and not-so-queer but largely gay) and women holding forth at the few tables. In short wonderful! Excellent music, tracks upstairs,...More

Rude horrible door staff. No manners at all. They think they somehow have power and authority. How wrong they are, little people always try and be big. Avoid.

Hi Jeni I don't know for sure but I doubt it. The bar is only open at night and most bars and pubs in the U.K. only allow under 18s before 7pm. I suggest you tweet the Glory to check.
