I visited for the first time on 21/09/17. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The drinks are reasonable and the atmosphere is lovely. I also loved their music choice. I definitely recommend the New Bloomsbury Set and I'll be coming back again soon.

Wasn't unpleasant, and had a friendly barman, but wouldn't say it was a particularly interesting gay bar. It does seem to fall into a number of gay bar cliches; including the music. It has a place, probably somewhere in the 90's.
