    Quinn's?

    I'm not London-based, but having had a wee read through some of the London Hibs thread, I just wondered if I'm missing some sort of tongue in cheek reference to Quinn's? The way it's described on here makes it sound a real cut above most matchday boozers, especailly in relation to the way your meet-ups appear to be centred around fine dining. I must say it all sounds very agreeable

    Quinn's is the finest establishment in the whole City although strangely missing from all the 'good food' guides.

    The longer it remains a "hidden secret" the better, the last thing the place needs is party buses full of Man v Food types! :-)

    100%. I'm a supporter of the dress code as well, standards must be kept up or it'll be overrun with jeans and grey cotton jogging bottoms!

    Certainly is becoming more of a secret - last time I was in for the Hibs Huns game (where they robbed us) there were about five folk in! Used to be ten times that.

    Are they showing the game tonight, or is Wednesday night Opera and Oyster night? Last time I went to see a game I ended up with a lovely plate of gravalax and watched a fascinating modern interpretation of Turandot

    The match is on at Quinn's tonight in what was the Piano Bar. The refurbishment is still ongoing and should be completed by mid-July.

    The advice is to enter from the side entrance (Hawley Rd) and due to the ongoing construction work, dress policy is relaxed for the two forthcoming matches. No food being served as the kitchen is closed.

    Hope to see a few faces a bit later.

    There is an element of light insincerity. Apart from the dress code obviously.

    My only experience of Quinn's was the 2-2 game at Tynie.

    I have to say that it has put me off ever even contemplating setting foot in such low-life places as the Ivy and the Dome ever again. The ambience and cordon bleu catering are simply nonpareil.

    However, I am probably barred now, given that I was unable to prevent my son from dancing down the bar when Hanlon scored.

    Yes they certainly do take a dim view of such behaviour.

    Has "Pierre @ Quinns" reopened after the Sushi Bar/Japanese Garden Courtyard Upgrade?

    I was thinking about donning the Glad Rags and pushing the boat out for the Hertz game (assuming Greater Anglia have resumed their full evening services). There is even an outside chance that they have replaced the regular Replacement Bus Service with trains at the weekend, so could attend the Huns game too.

    I have to say, that between the Rail Issues and the refurb at Quinns, my weekends have been been ruined.
