Went to Christmas Night and very impressed. From arriving good fun trying to find your party, the place is like the Doctor Who Tardis. But most parts are pretty well labelled with who the room is for. Staff at our bar very nice but certainly...More

Went in with the wife for a quick beer. Ended there most of the afternoon as it is such an interesting place. A few pints of Caffrey’s and a fantastic plate of Chilli Nachos later we went back to hotel.

Fantastic interior and friendly staff, certainly stands out as a place to visit for a drink, although not as cheap as some of the pubs around it. Worth a trip all the same.

Visiting friends we decided to stay for a couple of hours. Nice beer and nice food. Bit confusing to navigate around but quirky. Had a great time and surprised by live music later in the evening that made the night.

I have to admit, when my friend said she wanted to take me to Waxy’s, my inner snob turned her nose up. Last time I was in a Waxy’s, it was over 15 years ago, in London, and it was a good place to go...More

A bit pricey but nice and cosy to sit and have a few drinks after some shopping. Pleasent decor and friendly staff.

Hi Beth, Thanks for taking time to leave your review. Plenty of space to rest your legs after Christmas shopping - hopefully we will see you again soon for a cheeky glass of mulled wine! Cheers! Claire D
