- Very easy location from Balham tube - Nice lighting inside - Big balcony area with nice lights - Nice pink sofa

- The mezzanine feels a bit like a side corridor. Lots of people kept coming through trying to get to other rooms. They were just going the wrong way but no one stopped them. - Party ‘packages’ offer zero discount for bulk buying. Bubbles package works out as £33 per bottle BEFORE 12.5% service charge is added. Extortionate, but they obviously have you over a barrel. - I ordered prosecco and beer and asked the bar guy to have one ice bucket of each out and the rest in the fridge to refill. But he kept it all out on the bar with just a few bits of ice in the bottom and no water (?!) in the ice bucket so it obviously was not working as such. Warm prosecco and beer. - Fairly unhelpful beforehand when trying to ask about portion sizes for food (fries and brownies). Kind of essential info when trying to figure out how many to order. I just got told ‘standard size’…standard size for what? Standard compared to what?! Also I don’t think all the fries I ordered were brought out. I was handed a tray with 5 portions on and then handed them out myself. - From the start of the night (19.30ish), the ladies loos were so messy and without toilet paper. Clearly not monitored.

Cons: room wasn’t clean or ready for when we arrived and the Prosecco reception was also not ready. The door staff were rude and so were several of the male bartenders (who also don’t know how to make a spritz). The queues from the bar in the room were so long people went downstairs.

Pros: the room is a good size and the balcony is great outside space. The female bar tender was lovely and welcoming and made the stress at the beginning ease.
