This pub is a complete dump! Avoid it at all costs! I have only been there once and will never go back! It opens at 5am so it attracts some of the people who have just fell out of nightclubs & looking for somewhere to keep their "party" going.

I had the displeasure of seeing two blokes snorting cocaine off the table they were drinking from...nobody else batted an eyelid & they weren't trying to hide what they were doing either. One of those blokes who was out of his mind on cocaine wanted to stick a glass through my friend's face cos he was that paranoid from the cocaine.

If you want to drink and associate in the company of downright scum, then you'll love this place, but if you have any respect for yourself or indeed value your life, you'll give this place a wide berth!
