Dingy and run-down club with very aggressive and confrontational bouncers. The doormen seem to try and instigate confrontations with otherwise calm and unassuming customers, just to pass their time. Witnessed very specific slurs being used on customers for no reason. The shorter balding bouncer doesn't...More

Objectively old place , a bit shabby and not good to host live events as happens to do. Few people working at bar , having to wait long for drinks during gig and not a friendly atmosphere at all.

The Workmans is a great place to go with friends and have a chat while enjoying a pint/burger. The atmosphere is pretty relaxed and you can either chill or dance like nuts. Thursday and Fridays are the best nights to visit. Wowburger is amazing, cheap...More

Been there on a Wednesday night on January, the place looked a bit empty at around 12, however, in an hour it became so busy it was certainly a great night! Music ranged from house to electronic, drinks were not too watery as you expect...More

Having been to the Workman's club on several occasions I have never had a bad experience. The drinks menu is reasonably priced and the cocktails are delicious. The bouncers are lovely, not at all aggressive without reason and the atmosphere is simply party party party....More
