Basic food but well cooked and reasonable for town. Drinks also reasonable. Given a great table with a good view of the stage. Acts were funny. We’ve been many times and will continue to go. Our favourite comedy venue in Manchester by far

Visited on a Monday night which was a night where people had to compete to be the best comedian. Very enjoyable night. Really good up and coming comedians! Had lots of laughs. It was surprisingly busy for a Monday night so I'm glad we booked!
