Popped in as nearby, intrigued by the jokey near-steampunk decor, and ordered something to eat just to soak up the beer. Astonishingly good food, surpassing dishes I've had at well regarded restaurants - both plates were excellent.

The bouncers are rude, aggressive and POWER CRAZY! Their behaviour was particularly unacceptable towards two young women.

As the title says, it is tough to find a place opens past midnight in this area. We were a group of friends. The music was really good (hip-hop mostly), the choice of beers was decent and the sitting arrangement is pretty cool. The ambiance...More

Went here for a few drinks. Staff were friendly and is has nice decor. Couldn't fault anything so thought the other reviews must be a bit strange or we were just very lucky!

Excellent place for drinks,offers beers from local breweries, friendly staff and overall good music. Food is good as you could expect in a pub, classic British. It's located just a block from Westfield shopping centre.
