Terrible, it's one of the few places in Middlesbrough to go and it's not very impressive, the door staff are by far the worst trained I have ever seen and think they are high and mighty and are just plain rude, Friday night's 'Sumo' is...More

Good for a night out dependant on your taste depends what night you should go! A little further away from all the other clubs and pubs but only a five minute walk. Cheap drinks and discounted entry before certain times.

Door staff spoil the whole feel of the night! Looking to start on people for no reason! Better places to go!
