I enjoyed my night out, however one of the guys there told my friend to take her feet off the table because she was sat cross legged. I get why however his tone of voice was not nescessary, name was Sean. Very rude and obnoxious, I get it’s for our safety and the pandemic but we’re not in a school. Guy needs to sort his attitude out, made my friend feel very small. Other than that I always enjoyed myself at the place :)

Initially we were placed at a table next to the entrance and the bar unfortunately this meant that people were often centimetres not the standardised minimum of a metre away from us due to the influx of people and queue for the bar. Thankfully, we were later moved to a different table but this wasn’t without a poor attitude displayed by the gentleman that assigned us. I understand this is a difficult time for everyone and is no doubt frustrating and stressful for staff members but overall we left feeling deflated and upset having had a poor experience.

Good atmosphere despite the Covid restrictions. If you want a gay friendly place and fairly priced drinks go here. As a Londoner £6 doubles was a treat :)

Pros:

- Staff were really polite and stuck to social distancing as well as they could
- Fun atmosphere at times

Cons:

- Too expensive, considering you can get some drinks at other bars/clubs for half the price
- Weird atmosphere at times, e.g. other patrons staring at you/talking about you, which doesn't seem to happen in other clubs/bars in Cardiff.

No food obviously but I knew that and didn’t go for food anyway so please ignore that rating. The survey didn’t have n/a.

Great service though. My only issue is with some (tipsy) people thinking it’s ok to wander about and approach other tables. To be fair though it was the same woman who turns up on her own then thinks everyone should entertain her. How you’d police that though, god knows.

Great time though thank you. We will be coming again.

I'm a usual of pulse and I never fail to enjoy myself what so ever, even though it's a change of circumstances and the club lifestyle has to now be adapted, Sean and his team have taken to it like duck to water and it's nice to see them thrive which is amazing, I have every confidence that they will thrive and nice having a little normality back

Specifically booked outside on the website as it was a hot day outside. Was seated inside and told that we did not book outside when I know we did. Left straight away as we didn’t want to sit in. Staff were nice, but we were disappointed with the outcome
