Was heading to a concert upstairs in the venue. Ordered a "quick" burger - took a good 25 minutes, despite the fact I was the only person in there. Staff looked blank. Cannot recommend it (and when burger came, it was average at best........... )...More

Visited to see Dan Patlansky brilliant guitarist at this unusual venue. Small but very quirky with amazing sound and a chance to be part of the concert due to its intimate proximity with the audience. Would recommend and will visit again.

Really great venue for gigs. Absolutely beautiful! Sound was fab and place was quirky which is always great. Cloak room quite cheap. Drinks a little pricey but really enjoyed the place and music was great in the bar after the gig had finished.
