This particular branch of O’neills is not the best I have ever been to. It is quite big and prices are reasonable but it is a bot of a cattle market & not a place you can go for a quiet drink – as the previous reviews say, it can get very very busy and you spend you night squashed against people.
The doormen/security can be a bit intimidating but who can blame them really when the place is so busy?
There is live music on the weekends which is always very good & the place is always full of student nurses from Whipps Cross hospital which is only a few minutes walk up the road.
I agree that pre booking a cab from your own local cab company is a good idea because you dont really want to be waiting around for nearly an hour with a lot of drunk people causing fights nearby.
All in all, it is worth going to see the live music but be prepared to get squashed!
