“Second and final visit! ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

Such a great unique venue it really should be a fab way to spend an evening. Unfortunately it is run by an unpleasant man with an attitude problem who has absolutely no idea of customer service. Due to an accident on the motorway we were late to the show so we phoned ahead to let them know and waited happily in the bar until the interval. When we did go to find our seats it appeared he must have sold them again as there was no where to put us. We ended up on stools, one in front of each other in what seemed to be the aisle. It's a small theatre but I think we'd have struggled to get out of there'd been a fire! And speaking of fire - no air con! It was absolutely boiling, no offer of water or anything for people so we were left fanning ourselves with menus. Didn't think much of our first visit, this will certainly be our last!

“Magic Evening! Will go again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Had an absolutely brilliant time with some friends. Got a voucher deal so the evening was excellent value for money. The stylish little bar provides the perfect intimate setting for some quality entertainment. The performance was excellent and the guys on stage were very talented and humorous. We will definitely be returning

“Unique and charming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

This small theatre located at the back of a quaint pub which serves a good selection of beers and wines etc. holds only about 50 people. The owner indulges his love of magic by acting as an excellent compere to the show. We saw 2 acts. The first was a little strange and didn't quite hit the comedy mark it was aiming for but the main act ' The Wizards of Odd' were hilarious. Entrance prices are reasonable and table magic is performed in the bar before the show. This is one of those places that you remember because it is unique.
