Visited here on two consecutive nights over the Easter weekend, (now called Stumble Bar). On the first night we noticed advertising for karaoke the following evening. We decided to make it a date, and ventured there on the second evening. Hugely disappointed! A handful pf...More

We visited this bar in Jan 2017 to find it had changed its name but unfortunately not its concept. The inside hadn't changed, still drab, boring, unwelcome and lack of atmosphere. How can this be classed as a gay pub when all there seems to...More
