Disappointing experience. Staff were not friendly or welcoming. When we asked to move outside where there was plenty of seating we were told we had not booked outside and the staff would check and come back to us. This never happened. The covid safety partitions were falling apart. Drinks were cheap ish but not a place I would return to.

This place has gone downhill since it was Buffaloes and Wow. It was dirty, no one was abiding to COVID rules or being told by staff to keep to restrictions. One table had 10 people around it!

As I say it was dirty, staff seemed out of control of the place and the ambiance was just messy! So sad to see this great venue go so downhill. It’s not a place most people would want to go to. My group referred to it now being like a smelly old British Legion bar from the 80’s! We had a 2hr slot that lasted for 20mins by the time we gave it a chance and got our drinks. We drank up as soon as we could to simply get out of there as quick as we could.

Staff were outstanding, covid rules were in place and carried out like a military operation. No issues through the night, very strict on tables that booked slots were warned 15 mins before they needed to leave that their table was up. Social distancing was adhered too and was a safe environment whilst everyone enjoyed.

Previous food question not applicable.
We had made a booking for 8pm to 10pm, however when we arrived we had to wait half an hour to be admitted only to find the place was overbooked and were told to wait outside in the garden area with a lot of other people in the same situation and would be called when a table inside was available .
We waited until 9pm there was still no sign of a table available inside .
There was no social distancing in the garden area and the same at the bar.
There were supposed to be table service only, however there were people at the bar with no face covering and no social distancing .
Very disappointed.

Staff not wearing face masks and breaking the 2m rule with customers.

Dvd being played on the TV kept crashing and the audio was terrible.

Um this place just opened and it was prides cymru big weekend (online only though) so we booked a table there thinking it would have sone atmosphere but how wrong was we? The drag hosts didnt seem bothered there was no music except repeats of stage shows on three tvs or and they did put disco lights on but thar didnt add any atmosphere. I would recommend it to anyone and would go back

The staff were polite and friendly. The music was a bit quiet, but that's understandable due to Covid rules.
