Whether a date, meeting friends or with family this is a great evening and super cheap depending when you go. The student deals are excellent and if you follow them on Facebook they have lots of information about the deals they have going on. £5 Thursdays are excellent as you get food with your ticket. The nachos were huge and... More

went to see Sofie Hagan. The venue is absolutely lovely, very atmospheric and intimate. Ordered nachos - good portion, very tasty and fast service. I had a great night, would recommend.

There is a lot to like here, with very friendly, relaxed staff and decent food, priced reasonably. However, there were bits that could be improved too. The chorizo on which my scallops were served was tasty, but too chewy; maybe better if cut thinner, to try to get it crisp. The sirloin steak was well-cooked, but as in so many... More

I had no real expectations going into the restaurant of a comedy club but this is clearly somewhere in its own right - meaning it was pretty good! We had a nice ale each from a decent range, then two courses. My squid was nicely done and the main fish and chips did all that it needed. Worth popping back... More

The wife and I went here whilst the kids went to see Mary Poppins, I was not that hungry but the wife had a burger at £12 which I thought was quite expensive. Don't get me wrong the staff and food were great, just a little bit over priced. We then went down to the comedy club (paying £12 each... More

Thanks for your review. The burger in our Bistro is a gourmet burger and is different to the one served downstairs in the venue hence the price difference. Our Bistro prices are highly competitive with surrounding venues - often lower than the equivalent offerings. Comedy is subjective hence the amount of different acts and shows we run 7 days a...

First time we have been here, the food was outstanding, reasonably priced and very tasty, staff friendly and professional. Then downstairs to the comedy club, compare brilliant, all four acts good but some better than others, really good, enjoyable funny evening out with friends we laughed over and over again.
