First time I had visited this venue. Do not be put off from the dated exterior, inside everything is clean and tidy. Venue holds I would say around 500 max, and for the comedy show (Andy Parsons) we saw, this was a good number. Enough to be a good and loud crowd and at the same time small enought to... More

Great venue! Clean and tidy! Spacious, comfy seats! The show is full of jokes, nudity and swear words! Very entertaining don't want to give the game away by putting too much info!

We were nearly late due to a closure on the A30 but still managed to park in Market St. Marcus Brigstock was excellent and as a lady, I'm pleased to see that the venue has enough loos that you don't have to queue plus a decent hand dryer. Comfortable seating as well.

Management response:

Thank you very much for your review. Please don't tell everyone the loos are so good or they will all want to use them! We hope you enjoy any return visits as much. More

We are very sorry that you felt your evening was spoiled. If we see anyone who is drunk or taking photographs we do approach them. I have to admit that we don't always see this, it is impossible to spot everyone - we don't have staff who are specifically employed to watch the audience. The artist dictates whether the bar...
