Had such a fab time here! Staff are all incredible (sorry if we were being menaces). Good drinks & great offers! Also v nice vibe (although music was a bit quiet outside however I imagine that’s due to being in a residential area). Again staff were bloody amazing!!! Thanks so much guys

Didn't eat any food but had cocktails. These were 90% ice and couldn't taste any alcohol at all. Not as good as it used to be.

Absolutely love the cocktails here. Always served with a smile and the shots don't even taste like shots, which is admittedly dangerous.

I really Enjoyed my evening here. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We had our orders were taken rather than having to download an app to order which I liked. We had to wait 10 minutes for our table to be cleared (this wasn't an issue) but we were given complimentary drinks for the wait which was nice. I have been here a few times and it doesnt disappoint. Would recommend.

It's perfect place and spot on for young people and students, due to the Headingly location. As per the current restrictions, we were sitted outdoor in the semi small buffs, despite being separated by the participation from others, the noisiness was very significant from the music coming off the loudspeakers. On the other hand, it's hard to judge being young, but group of girls sitting next to us, must be banging the wooden construction of the boofs, so my back and head was bouncing constantly.
Overall, the customer service was outstanding, young waitresses were coming off your needs and serve your drinks very fast.
Drinks priceless was OK, you definitely wouldn't have to plunge your wallet.
Summary: good place for students and youngish people, but might be too noisy if you are seeking a quieter place to chat.
