Loved the style of this pub with its blue leather upholstered booths and chesterfields.Wacky retro brightly coloured lampshades adorn the ceiling.No real ales but kegs with Palm lager being my reluctant choice.So there you have it Babel-bright,blue,blingy but boring beer.BYE BYE.

Babel is a large open plan bar with a bar along the back wall where limited premium draught products and Guinness can be purchased. I decided upon a half of the black stuff when I visited late on Friday afternoon last week. This set me back £2.25 and my change was returned on a sticky silver tray; there was no tip left. There were some advertisement up on the wall advertising all day brunch and burgers, but I didn’t spot any menus with prices.
The furniture consists of some stools along either side wall that tuck under drink shelving and some sofa seating and tables in the centre opposite the bar. The weather was very clement during my visit so the front had been opened up to some high tables on the path outside that are covered by awnings. There are no televisions that I noticed, but there was some background music playing at an unobtrusive level.

Like the other pubs and bars down this stretch Babel was busy with office workers who had clocked off for the weekend. There was a good atmosphere, but I think that there are better venues in the immediate area.
