Absolutely disgusted with the bouncers on the door. Refused for no reason ! I was with my fiancé wanting a quite drink and we were made to feel humiliated. They would not give us a reason for refusal for the refusal.

This place is sticky, loud and full of sweaty ill mannered types. People were practically having intercourse on the dance floor. It smelt like dead animals. The whole experience was foul.

Went in at around 5 on a Friday alone for a quiet drink. Was served by a nice member of staff, and then watched as Kevin (a manager) proceeded to be abrasive to staff in front of customers, to talk down to them and to...More
