I occasionally pop in here after work. I've never had food so can't comment but the drinks are over-priced, it's definitely one of 'those' bars that put your changed on a plate, half-expecting a tip to be left and there is no real ale.
Busy nights are Thursdays and Friday and it becomes a bit of a cattle market and the service is slow - it's more reactionary than expectant which kinda winds me up - what else do you expect at a bar - bar people serving, drinkers drinking - not rocket science I'd have thought? Some of the crowd in here are stuck up their own dirt pipes, others are genuinely "Office Sarahs", others are thugs, other gents 'n' ladies. Everythings a bit stand-off-ish and so if you talk to someone you get glared at.

I occasionally pop in here for lunch. The food is good, and reasonably priced. But the drinks are over-priced, and it's one of 'those' bars that put your changed on a plate, half-expecting a tip to be left. The fact that the change is usually 20p from a fiver for a pint doesn't seem to deter them. I've not been here of an evening, but once you get more than 3 people at the bar at once, it's gets complex, so busy nights may well be hard work.

Nice interior and the bar staff weren't as rude as everyone else on here says they are. On the other hand the people who walk around collecting your glasses are a pain in the arse! They're very rude and just reach right across to grab your barely finished glass. The people this place attracts are not the most pleasent either. Lot of idiots. There are definitely better places to go then in here.

This bar is awful. It is a nice set up BUT, the staff are rude and obnoxious. And it is overpriced, Go elsewhere. I was at a Secret Sundaze party there and the treatment of everyone there was appalling. Security was rough, rude and unsympathetic, I also found them to be unnecessarily heavy handed I have been secret sundaze before but this place spoiled me and my friends vibe, we ended up leaving. There are MUCH better places in Shoreditch to go. DO NOT GO HERE!!!! I donít believe in giving bars who donít care about their customers any service, it doesnít make sense. The bar is too expensive and the staff are RUDE

I have been going to the light bar for years. Admittedly it is so popular that the service can be very slow. But the outside area is great for smokers and the upstairs bar plays really good house music on a Friday night to a really happy crowd. The restaurant is always very good. I have had at least three parties in the upstairs bar over the years and everyone has always had a great time.
