Don't let the flashy interior fool you, there are far better places to go to watch sport - both cheaper and friendlier. Went with a friend to watch the rugby league final and they switched the TVs over before the end to show the final of Big Brother!! Either that or they play loud pop music instead of commentary. If you call yourself a sports bar that should be your first priority. The atmosphere is rubbish too for games as real fans know where else to go.

Went in on a Saturday night and it took AGES for me to be served. The trick is to be wearing a short skirt or else the bartenders won't notice you're alive. Shocking really......

Can anyone tell me what is the point of building a sports bar, installing huge screens and then putting a balcony in so that anyone under the balcony can't see the big screens. Instead I had to huddle round a very small LCD screen. If you want to go and watch sports go to a big open pub with a big screen.

Lager is expensive and poor quality.

You like sport? Get yer ass here then. Every table has it's own tv which you can choose whatch virtually any sports show that's on. What's more they've got an inbuilt pc and playstation at every one, you can spend hours playing with it all. The only thing though, £6 for two crappy lagers! I don't even pay that much for nice beer, so don't let it drag you in too much else they will literally completely empty your wallet...

I went to this pub to watch the 6 Nations rugby and was very impressed. You can see a screen no matter where you stand and the atmosphere was great with all the fans having a laugh and getting on with each other. Service was pretty quick considering how busy it was and the food was great, huge portions!

More TV's than Dixons. So a decent place to catch the footy, although some of the TVs embedded in the tables offer a weird viewing angle. Also worth a visit just to have a laugh at the ridiculous staff uniforms.
