The booking experience was very friendly and genuine and when we arrived this was further enhanced by more friendly and helpful staff. A real credit to the place. The comedian's were diverse and so therefore everyone in our mixed age and gender group was guarenteed a laugh or 10 !! The after show club was not my sort of music... More

This was a lovely night including dinner, drinks a stand-up comedy show - host very good, 1st comedian great, 2nd comedian ok, 3rd comedian very good - so overall an enjoyable evening). After the show it turned into a disco/night club, which was ok.

Firstly! The staff on arrival were lovely, couldn't have done more to make you feel welcome, vip tickets... Hmm, we were in the main entrance lobby, the prosecco & nibbles were one glass each and a bowl of mixed olives, (hardly nibbles) the pork starter was inedible, (pedigree chum in cutlets) the mackerel pate was ok, not enough toast. The... More

The staff were great and very attentive through your the whole evening and the three different comedians were very funny - as was the Mic. Drinks were reasonably priced. Easy central location. A great... More

Friendly and accommodating staff it's a shame about the food and comedians on the night. Burgers served cold but compensated with free puds. Only one comedian out of three used his comic skills to the max, shame wouldn't bother again.

Went to a Krater Comedy night here and was really impressed over all. Drinks are really reasonable; 4 pint jugs of beer/ale especially good value. You can eat too, and the food looked good. Staff were great - both the bar staff and those on the door or showing people to tables. The first two comedians were fantastic, and one... More
