Thoroughly awesome place to visit. Have been here many times and every time is great. Staff are pleasant and very quick to help. Tables are a little on the small side to fit everyone in so beware of that but otherwise faultless.

No two nights here are ever the same here as the acts always vary. Food/drink can be preordered to save the long bar queues that can occur. Always a good night and convenient location for other bars/clubs to turn the evening into night.

Six of us went to the Glee Club to celebrate our son in laws birthday, and although we didn't book until the morning of the gig, we ended up with front row seats. The two main comedians were good, but the show case part comprised of four comedians for 5 minutes each and they were all poor. The highlight of... More

I love this place! Never a bad night to be had. Rough works is a must see. Loads of new acts trying their stuff out. The regular comedy nights are just second to none. The atmosphere is incredible, food and drinks are all great a fairly priced and I've only ever seen one dud act out of about 50 that... More

Went her on a Saturday night comedians were pretty funny and didn't feel like someone reciting an act. Drinks are slightly on the expensive side but not too bad a double vodka for £6, I would definitely go back
