Fantastic venue and great entertainment. This was our first time at the Glee Club and found it to be a new favourite night out for us!
Great staff and brilliant comedians. We had a great time and the whole night was well organised.
We'll definitely be back!

Thank Angele B

We visited the Glee Club at the end of May 2014 whilst on a overnight stay in Oxford. Their were 3 stand-up comedians, each with their own style but all as entertaining and funny as each other. We had some food whilst there which was good value for money and very tasty given the price. The only down side is that it took quite a long time to get service at the bar

After the show you can go clubbing down stairs if you want to and it don't cost you any more which is a added bonus

I would recommend paying the Glee Club a visit

Customer feedback on our service is important to us.

We have been to Glee in Oxford several times and enjoyed everything about it. The meet-and-greet, service, food and entertainment is superb. Well worth a visit. Be prepared for strong language and go with an open mind and you will have a great night out. Great value.

This was my fourth visit to Glee in Oxford. The experience on every occasion has been amazing. The staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful -- and efficient. Our every requirement was met quickly and with a smile. The food offered is simple, but tasty and filling -- if you want Cordon Bleu, go to a restaurant! Prices for both food and drinks are very reasonable, and the service is quick and pleasant.
The entertainment will not appeal to everyone, every time -- humour never does. But in four visits -- sixteen acts, including the MCs -- I have only felt slightly disappointed with one. The others have all left me and my companions aching from laughing.
When you visit Glee Oxford, ask to see Pete, the Manager, and have a brief chat with him (he's a busy man!), and you'll understand why he has such a happy team which works so very well.
P.S. We're far too wrinkly to take advantage of the free entry to Wahoo after the show, but it's a huge benefit if you can cope!

We had a fantastic night at the Glee Club with exceptionally funny comedians and compere... but that was NOT down to the Glee Club itself. My partner and I enjoyed all the comedians and the compere, and had a fantastic time. However, we would not rush back unless we knew it was the only place we could see specific comedians.

The tables and chairs were uncomfortable. We were seated at the front - nobody else was sat close to us until a couple requested to be moved later on. We ordered the same pitcher of cocktails twice; the mix was completely different both times - clearly at least one member of staff did it wrong. Service at the bar was cold and slow. The curries we ordered were microwaved, unappetizing and barely warm. The poppadoms were swimming in oil. The toilets, shared with the club, were absolutely disgusting, almost unusable. We had to leave through the club which was not a nice experience.

The positives? The staff on the door were very friendly, the drinks choice was OK, food was, at least, served, and the low price reflected the poor quality.

I would not rush back to this venue, and have been left with a poor impression of the Glee Club chain.
