There were more staff than customers on a Saturday night. The doormen are very polite and so are the bar staff, but we had an issue and a barman had to call the manager because he wasn't authorised to sort it out. A scruffy Asian chap came over to us and asked us what we wanted, apparently this guy was... More

Called in with family for a quick lunchtime drink. It wasn't busy but the girl behind the bar was engrossed in a conversation with two young blokes so took a while to serve us. We just had 4 soft drinks which we drank at the outside tables and it was£10! London prices I know! We saw people having pizzas which... More

This place has changed it's name a few times. I've been here several times over 10 years. The staff and bouncers have always been polite. They have 2 floors, a few TV screens, pool table. They have outside seating at the front. On Tuesday evenings, they have Salsa classes from 19:30. Which is great, the atmosphere is always good

This place is in need of some redecoration. Lovely big venue and could be much classier. Wine is not the best quality and aprox £8 a glass which isn't cheap. Staff are usually polite but not trained and take time to serve you and often have no idea how to find drinks on the till.

I bought a wowcher deal from this company for a three course meal for my boyfriends birthday. When we got there the exterior and interior looked very nice, however was rather empty. My boyfriend and I had never been before and expected a separate restaurant to the bar. This was not the case, as we walked up to the bar... More

I went to Flavas for my Birthday on 04/10/2015 2013. Had a great time with friends and family. Particularly enjoyed the music that was played. Had a fair bit to drink too and shared a platter to eat. All in all it was a good night out.
