The agent challenges were great fun , as indeed was the entire evening! The staff were attentive, welcoming and clearly wanted everyone to enjoy their missions! Thank you! Worth remembering there is no food available - however the restaurant above did look worth investigating.

Hi Agent B,

Thank you very much for being with us and defeating the enemy :)
The missions wouldn't have been successfully completed if you were not there!

Our agent in the ground are grateful you really had a good time with them too!

Check our sister bar ABQ London...another fun immersive experience bar with banging music and amazing molecular cocktails!

Thanks a lot, hope to see you soon at the bunker.
Over and out.

Agent N

Unfortunately, we didn't share the same great experience that everyone else did.
Long story short, we were confirmed as having the table until 10pm which was confirmed, we were kicked out at 9:30. They ruined the surprise for the birthday boy upon arrival, the young lady was rude and told us we couldn't complete both games because we were 30 minutes late (because we couldn't find the place). I got shouted at for looking under a picture for a clue and we were charge an extra £60 for drinks which should have been part of the experience.
Great venue and music but the staff utterly ruined it for us. Would go back if they had new staff.

I LOVE puzzles and games. I was so excited about this experience, and it was mostly good. Personally I thought the puzzles were interesting, but not actually very difficult.

Also, I'm glad that they had the option of choosing non-alcoholic drinks. However, for a place that advertises "no two drinks are ever the same", my two drinks tasted and looked very very much alike!

It was fun, but probably wouldn't pay to do it again.

This was so much fun. Escape room meets bar. The puzzles weren’t super difficult, but hard enough to make it fun. Drinks were good and met each of our different tastes. Staff were very friendly.

My friends and I wanted to do a fun activity while visiting London again. We bought the two hour experience which is really all you need. We went to the World's End Pub and mentioned The Bletchley. We were led downstairs into a secret area that was WW2 themed. We were asked to put on WW2 uniforms and were greeted with a delicious cocktail. We had to break two different codes during the night to receive our two cocktails. We used an Enigma machine to decode the clues and then had to "radio in to command" to receive our cocktails.

I will say this...I did not take the first clue set seriously and ended up with a very icky tasting drink. The second drink tasted a little better but my favorite was our "free" cocktail in the beginning. They were nice enough to tell me that if I did not like my drinks that they would make me something else. Overall it was a fun time with a group of friends.
