The comedy put on here was excellent. Of the five performers in total, the vast majority of my party found them all to brilliantly entertaining. Less impressive than the performers is the food and drink though, which is very expensive. Come here on a full stomach and you'll have an excellent time.

This time not so good, the acts were not as funny two very angry shouting comedians ''You know what I mean''. the host was very good . Night completely spoiled by two drunk women being loud and shouting unnecessary comments . Also... More

Visited Glee in Cardiff tonight. The four acts which came on were very good! Worth going for the acts! We ordered burgers which we were very disappointed with. If you want dinner there - would advise to order sides , like nachos or chips. Or eat before you go. The drinks were ok.

Lucky this time to have enjoyed all the acts! Angela Barnes being my favourite on the night (Sat 18th Feb). Staff are fabulous, bar has enough choice on offer and food looks much more inviting and interesting than a few years ago! Great venue and great acts!

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The drinks and reasonably priced. It was a really good night out, comedians were really funny. Food wasn't great for the price but all in all had an amazing time.. can't wait to go back soon!

First of all, the bouncers were fine; checked our passes and let us in no problems and didn't see them again until we left. Saw 4 comedians, each different from one another and equally as funny. The 'start/end/in-between each act lady' also hilarious with some good audience interactions (luckily we were sat near the back). We only had a dessert... More

I really want to like this place, love watching live comedy. The food is just bar snacks really so as long as you have the right expectations it is fine. Drinks we are ordered were on the table as requested and generally a pretty good evening. It was completely ruined by the over zealous bouncers who, come the end of... More
