Called in for a drink with friends before going to a show, loved it although very tiny and could be a bit squashed but it was once just a public toilet after all. Bar man was friendly enough and a decent glass of white wine...More

I visited the Temple out of curiosity. It was well worth my time I have never seen anything like it. It’s extremely quirky as you can imagine. What an absolutely fab idea. If you like death metal and punk this is a definite must do....More

Me and my mother popped in here for a quick one after attending a gig at gorilla. It was surprising cosy for a converted toilet and had a large drinks selection for such a small bar! Great atmosphere and lovely bar tender will definitely visit...More

Had a great night in here. Got there a little too early and stayed a little too late. Didn't want to leave at all. Paid for it the next day but it really was a great night out.

Popped in here for a quick pint because I was intrigued by the while 'underground bar' thing. Turns out it is converted toilets. My quick pint started at 4pm and didn't finish till just before closing! The staff are great fun and the atmosphere is...More

Definitely worth a visit to say that you have been. A few of us nipped in for a swift one whilst crawling our way to a gig at the academy, was quiet but then again it was a Monday night. Very small as you can...More

What can you say the last time I went in there I had a wee as a kid. Small, compact, great beer selection and has a nice atmosphere. Love it!

After my last experience, thought I'd give it another try and it was a little better. Yes, it is characterful (with the ubiquitous beggar opposite its "front" entrance) and a narrow bar at the end (which was made narrower when people sit there). Anyhow, couple...More

Stumbled in this place as we were passing and liked the look of an underground bar. Haven't got a lot to add to previous reviews - this place is very small, very quirky and very cool. Unpretentious, good beer, great music. Not sure if I'd...More
