First and only negative has to do with the food. It was a full room, there were other events at the BrazenHead and I don't think they were prepared for the crush. With that said, Michael, our story telling guide, was fantastic. In today's world...More

We really enjoyed this evening where Ollie brought the history and folklore to life! The music and sing alongs were great. The food was good but Ollie was the star of the night! Highly recommend!

What a treat this was! Don’t let the odd bad review fool you, those folks either don’t appreciate good storytelling and music or they weren’t paying attention at all. This was so much fun and even the food was good. I really didn’t expect much...More

Most pubs do a selection and have a play list. They are so close together if you don't like one you can try the one next door. Different musicians on different nights.
