The place is amazing on the inside. Don't let the closed upstairs fool you. Head on downstairs to enjoy one of the best nights of your life. Decor is amazing. Very chic on the inside. Looks like an old unused underground station. Think Waterloo underground...More

We enjoy drinking here as it's usually a bit quieter than the other ale houses on King Street. They do a nice range of beers, although the staff could be more knowledgeable.

Beer good.......food shocking.....waited an hour and a half for 6 pizzas and starters. Five were dry and cold. One ham and pineapple was sent by mistake. This was returned 3 times only to be returned with 3 different toppings on each occasion.

Initially went in for a beer or two but decided to get some pizza. Very glad we did, I had the Speck and the Mrs had the Parma Ham and rocket. I can honestly say I have not had a better pizza outside of Italy!...More

Really lively atmosphere in this bar built in 2 vaults. Unusual selection of beers but all quite expensive. Comfy sofas and good seating areas.

Our friend took us here for the atmosphere, novelty and the choice of beers. It is great fun and is half a pizza restaurant and half a bar tucked away in the cellars. A brilliant place

No. Not at all. But I recommend to dress smart casual though. This is what every one else is wearing. Hope this helps. It's a good night in there.
