thank you for the headache
Feb 2020
2 stars because of the incredibly loud music, played out of speakers that were completely blown. you couldn't even hear yourself speak! I asked at the bar whether the volume could be turned down just a little, and the bar staff very apologetically said that the manager wants the music to be that loud at all times. To be fair, it was really unnecessary to have the music that loud, it was 9:30pm on a thursday, and things were starting to wind down. I can completely understand if it was a saturday night (i enjoy loud music and clubbing!), but really it felt inappropriate and unpleasant. its a shame because the bar is nice and pool tables are fun, but the noise just ruined the whole experience for me. shame.

Fitted our needs perfectly
Jan 2020
I reserved two pool tables for a couple of hours last Saturday. We were a large group of almost 25 guys on a stag do and the place could't have been better. Everybody had a great time. Thank you also to the lady who was on duty behind the bar- she seemed to be the only person working for most of the time we were there and had a lot on her plate as the whole place was pretty busy. Definitely recommend the 1920 bar and I hope to visit again sometime soon

Xmas Party!
Dec 2019 • Business
We held our Office Xmas Party here just over a week ago. It is about 10 minutes walk from Barbican Station and it is quaint place. The bar staff were polite and looked after all of us. They have an electronic Dart Board, Pool Tables etc should you fancy something to do with colleagues or friends apart from having a drink. The food platters provided - mini hotdogs, burgers, chicken skewers etc were freshly prepared and hot. The ambience there was great and the decor easy on the eye. I therefore recommend this bar.

Great time

Booked pool table for my best friends 30th birthday and it couldn't have gone smoother. It was nice and chill, just what we needed to start out the day of drinking and celebration. Staff were really friendly (shout out to Robbie and Mitchel who were great). Would definitely go back and will even recommend it for our staff party at work. Hopefully see yese again soon!

AWFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE, COMPLETE RIP OFF
Mar 2019 • Couples
So the bar in itself was nice, we arrived on a Saturday at midday so the place was pretty deserted, perfect opportunity to play pool, darts and foosball! We were surprised to find that playing pool cost £15 for one hour, rather than a pound a game like most tables, but we chose to pay anyway. I paid the deposit at 1.45 so we could play until 2.45, I paid by card and the staff member did not give me a card receipt which I found odd but wasn't a huge problem. At 2.25 a very rude man came down the stairs, said we had 5 mins left to play. I told him we had until 2.45 and he replied with 'I say you started at 2.30, and if you don't return the balls at 2.30 you will need to pay another £15'. Appalling service, I tried to find my card receipt to prove the time, then remembered he didn't give me one. If you choose to play pool here make sure you get your receipt, or they will try and rip you off. We stayed for another hour playing darts and no one went on our table so there was absolutely no reason to cut our time short.

Terrible customer service
Nov 2018 • Friends
The bar itself is very nice and no issues with the pool tables etc themselves. However what let’s the place down is the service which was beyond disappointing. Had a table booked from 9.30-11pm, for which we arrived on time for. We were told upon arrival by the man behind the bar to wait for the existing guests to finish their game which we did with no problem.

This took them a further 20 minutes meaning we didn’t start playing until 9.50. Come 11.05 an incredibly rude member of staff came over and said that we had overran and the only way we could play further was to extend the booking (eg pay more).

At this point I explained the earlier situation of the delayed start time, to which she responded by grabbing the cue ball off the table (mid game) and walked off telling me instead to raise the issue with the man who told me to wait in the first instance. Appalling customer service.

Upon departure when I went to collect my card from behind the bar (it’s kept as deposit) the same woman told me I had an unpaid bill (which I didn’t) and snatched the card back out of my hand demanding I pay for a Heineken which I never had on my tab.

I explained that I never ordered this and it was only cleared when another member of staff instructed her to clear the charge.

Overall, pool tables are well maintained however experience was ruined by terrible customer service from one particular individual and would not return nor recommend, left feeling incredibly short changed.

A cool venue for some food and pool
Nov 2018 • Friends
If you're looking to spend a few hours with some friends for some pool, drinks and food, this place is pretty great. The food is plentiful and decent and I can't remember exactly how much the tables were but it wasn't too expensive either.
