Please go elsewhere. Avoid like the plague. Though that shouldn’t be too hard, seeing as my experience seems to reflect a lot of the problems faced by others who have made comments.
Approaching the entrance on a quiet Monday evening, the bouncer stopped me, asked me if I was alone. I told him I was meeting some friends inside, but I wasn’t sure if they were there yet as they had told me they were running late. ‘I’m not letting you in unless you know for sure you have people inside’ was the response I got. I explained that I’d probably have to check, but he was having none of it.
Seemingly realising that his reasoning was on very shaky grounds, he then decided to ask me for ID, which as a 30-year-old and looking clearly older than either 18 or 21, I no longer carry. ‘Not letting you in, you don’t have ID.’ At which point, I told him this was ridiculous and stormed off. I then went back, as this was absolute nonsense the way I was being treated, especially seeing as the pub looked to be fairly quiet.
He refused to answer any more of my questions, failed to give me a valid reason why I had been denied entry, and so I feel compelled to let others know. I was dressed in my office work clothes, wasn’t rude and can see no real reason why this ought to happen. Don’t waste your time.
