Went in tonight, definitely a snug fit straight into the Northern Quarter. And the toilets are class. Although beware the urgent hand dryers. Cocktails are about ?6 a pop so pretty much same as Socio. No draft lagers so no idiots. Bottled beers are limited; I got a bottle of Pacifico. It looked like beer, it smelt like beer, it tasted...like nothing. That aside the bar itself is bright and airy, love the decor. There's a small but well formed menu, looks like sushi-orientated so again, a new flavour for the locale. Hopefully the culinary theme is unconnected to the beautiful marine fish tank by the door. Overall, well done Walrus

Fits perfectly into the northern quarter! Funky little place with funky tasting drinks and a funky little food menu.

I had salt and pepper squid which was perfectly portioned, really easy to eat and welllll tasty! I EVEN GOT FREE PRAWN CRACKERS WHILE I WAITED!

Can't remember what I drank but that was well tasty too!

Perfect bar in the perfect place. And no idiots!

This place has got it spot on! Great drinks, delicious food, good tunes and out-there decor. Brilliant addition to the NQ.

Crap drinks menu, supposed to be kitsch, but decor is tacky, too bright, not sure it will ever be busy enough to fill the space. Hated the barstaff-unfriendly,same old northern quarter rubbish really.Also not a very welcoming or comfortable place to be in.

Popped in to drink away the memorys of xmas shopping... did the trick! Great cocktails, nice crowd, good service. I didn't try anything to eat but menu looks good. It will be intresting to see what its like in 6 mounths time. I like the decor my fav colour... i think I'm gonna love that walrus, wont be the first time after a couple of cocktails ;)

Unlike the previous comment about unfriendly barstaff, crap menu etc, we found our visit to walrus to be a complete eye opener. It's fantastic to see a bar of this calibre in the northern quarter.

It can only make the area better.

P.S WE found the barstaff to be most welcoming!

Went to Walrus on Saturday afternoon and loved it. The decor is amazing and so are the drinks.Its mainly cocktails on the menu but you dont know what alcohol is in the drink until you get it. You just pick your drink from the fruity description and wait to be surprised. Quite pricy but well worth the visit.

Needs to be given a chance. It's early days and a very ambitous project. Looks like it's heading in the right direction though.

Left without paying? However rude the staff were... You committed theft therefore you are a very unwanted addition to N4 you lowlife.

To the idiot 10 down, niehter Walrus, Fab or TV 21 are owned by the same people. You made that up. I like the drinks, if you don't why not go to the printworks, it's a short walk and probably more up your street.

Nothing wrong with it, just not suitable for the location, that's all. What's with 'no draft' policy??? It is seriously uncool - I hate draft beer but also dislike places which decide that not serving it makes them somewhow desirable.

I think they don't do draft simply because they can't be arsed with the hassle it brings and lack of space for a cellar.

walrus is not a comfortable place to be. in fact, it's a bit like being trapped inside a vivid nightmare you might imagine an agonized expressionist painter to suffer. but not a real artist, just some hapless fool on bad opium dreaming his talentless, obvious and oh so heavily laboured vision.

Went in on Saturday night and the place was rammed. Decor is different to say the least, but in a good way. Had a really good night. Ok, they don't do draught beer but if that is what you insist on drinking then there are plenty of places that do nearby. Personally i'd much rather have a great tasting bottle of imported lager in here than a pint of flat Fosters in Bluu!

Went in on thursday with my other half for something to eat and ended up being in there until the death drinking cocktails with the friendly barstaff. They told us to come back on saturday night. So thats exactly what we did and it was one of the best nights out that us and our friends had had in a long time. Only downfall is we had to queue up for 5 minutes but totally worth it!
