The bands I saw there were fantastic and the staff were friendly and helpful enough, especially security, BUT we women had a hard job finding toilet roll in the large bathroom. The cloakroom service was also unavailable. It's November. Lots of us showed up in coats and came to dance. I also struggled to find the main entrance and that really should be signposted clearly.

Prices are good here especially if you go during their happy hour, open mic night used to be great but haven't been in a while. The seating is good especially if you get a table upstairs- you can have a group conversation here. The staff used to always get the drinks wrong and my friend got an off pint once but everything else good!

Only went in for a drink. Upstairs, downstairs was the the same friendly staff and good vibe. When in London again soon will come back.

I’ve NO idea whether this place is any good but I wanted to mention Camden Lock. It is sensationally beautiful - the narrow canal boats, the old bridges and the markets, the general atmosphere is so thrilling. I’ll post photos here if it’ll let me. I only went here because I wanted to visit famous Dingwalls because the Police used to play here in the 1977 when they first got started.

I’ve been coming here for 15 years, I’ve missed the last few years but I came back the other night and boy has it gone downhill. Staff are rude and take forever to serve you, the drink prices are absolutely outrageous! I bought a cider, a beer and 2 shots of tequila for £25! I will not be buying drinks here ever again. I’d rather go sober!
