£10.40 for two tins of Carlsberg Export? That can’t be right, can it?? Takes the edge off the evening when you’re being fleeced.

Brilliant venue. My son had recently had surgery and was on crutches, the venue staff could not have been more helpful and helped us straight inside to avoid him having to stand in the queue. They were great. The gig was too!

We saw Everything Everything here in March 2018. The band were excellent and the sound quality was pretty great. Prices at the bar fairly reasonable. The main problem was getting in and around the venue. When we entered we were faced with a door that...More

I prefer these smaller venues as they are much more intimate. The performers are not tiny dots in the distance and no are screens are required. The music is not at all comprised and you definitely get to feel your part of the show. Plenty...More

My daughter is called "Eloise" and at last she got to see the band whose song inspired her name. These boys were outstanding- they've still got it! But I'm marking the venue, which I visit a lot, and, whilst the staff remain friendly & efficient...More
