The owner/manager threw us out, after we'd just bought full pints, because one of our party blew out a candle, that's literally it. He obviously has some massive ego problem, because we tried to humble ourselves and apologise but he grabbed our drinks off us and called the bouncers over. Even the bouncers thought it was ridiculous. But whatever, won't be going back, and I advise you don't. Only saving grace was the bouncers were really polite, but I'm pretty sure they're agency anyway.

Ah yes, I remember you. You and your friend decided to blow out an entire row of candles. The thing with this bar, if you act like a child, you will be treated like a child and have your toys (beers) taken away from you and put on the naughty step (outside)

It may sound petty, but have some respect for the venue you are visiting. I wouldn't come to where you work (you're a games designer right?) and start acting up, as that would be uncalled for.

As for my ego? If me chucking you two out for acting like twits, then yes I do have a "massive ego" problem

Good service from all staff, really friendly!! Good beer on tap. Great value for money on cocktails. It's also really good, it's open really late! I would recommend to friends and family!!

This is one of the few places in Nottingham which is open until 4 in the morning. Decent cocktails and music.

Visited Sunday 11pm, bar was reasonably quiet which gave us a bit of chill time & a few beers.
Nice atmosphere & after reading other reviews they must have sorted their staff problems as bar staff were nice & polite..

All in all, a thumbs up
