  • Great venue for gigs. Saw Limehouse Lizzy here with 3 old school mates and 2 old work mates. Great night Limehouse Lizzy saw them lots of times but this was the best they have ever played.  more »
  • Great to see these old favourites Cheers in a great venue. The 'sticky floor' issue seems to have been sorted and by having the upstairs balcony open, with its own bar, queues were smaller at the bar....  more »
  • So first time here, stayed not too far away so easy to find. Very atmospheric venue, I suppose due to a local lad playing, made it all the more special.Sound quality was good. Only comment I would...  more »

  • Bloody awful. I'll never go there again. So cramped one daughter past out, one was sick. None of us drink. I'm 6'3" and couldn't see the act. We helped three people who tripped over an unmarked step (health and safety issue) fortunately one of our party was a first aider. He helped the person, now blood covered and very shaken, but missed most of the show until an ambulance came. The fans of this act are all a bit like family so there was a great deal of cooperation that helped things otherwise, the place needs shutting down. One saving grace that earned the extra star (they deserved five) was the THE STAFF WERE FANTASTIC. Fans tempers flared because of the terrible conditions (it's the first time I have seen dozens of people leaving this acts gigs and all because of the venue). The staff kept their cool, were polite and very helpful. One very tall security guard was an absolute gentleman and helped my two daughters as though nothing was too much trouble. Fantastic staff, venue otherwise not fit for purpose.
  • Totally agree with review by Mark Keen. I'm assuming he went to see Gary NUMAN 15th October who was outstanding! Venue okay with smaller crowds but with nearly 1000 people it's an accident waiting to happen! Hope your family are okay Mark. I've edited this to give an additional star for the staff all of which are outstanding and kept smiling throughout the evening. Well done guys 👍
  • A high 3 star, first time having being there for a concert and would i go again, Yes I would. The stage location is good, the crowd is good, the bar location is ideal, walk staright past it making your way to stage. The one downside is as you come down the stairs into the crowd area, there are 2 slighty raised platforms both sides of the stairs and with poor lighting and visibility there was a lot of people tripping with one person falling over and landing quite hard.
  • Fantastic venue. Big enough for a decent crowd but still small enough to feel intimate. Amazing sound system as well.
  • ~Wow~ trip back down memory Lane...sticky floors & that lovely 'smell'! Attentive staff, good food ( could have been slightly bigger portions...esp for the men ) Would def recommend this comedy night, esp compare Jason & the 1st comedian...very funny🤣😘. Thanks for a great Birthday night of giggles Dave...looking forward to sampling the other comedians on your other dates.
