“Packed to the rafters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013 via mobile

I go here every time I visit Harrogate. It is always packed. Music genre wasn't my cup of tea but it was enjoyable. Always has a varied crowd.

“Xmas drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2013

Met with family and had a pre xmas drink and watched some great rock bands. Good atmosphere.Had a friend in band performing so had to go but enjoyed it so much we stayed on for the whole night. Have been before and had an equally good time.

“Music to enjoy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2013

Now here's an excellent venue.
Whilst you need to enjoy cramped and loud venues this only added to the atmosphere in support of the brilliant resident band on the Wednesday night we went.
Definitely a must. In the summer the music can be enjoyed sitting outside the bar.

“Great Bar,Great Music.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

I visited two night running at the Easter holiday.The place was mobbed. Even though it was packed,service at the bar was excellent. I never caught the name of the band on the Friday but they put on a great show.The band on the Saturday were "The Straight razor angels" a brilliant rockabilly band playing mostly original songs. If you are in Harrogate and you like blues/rock give this place a visit.

“Keep music live and close”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2013 via mobile

Small bar the stage takes up about a quarter of the space. Great sound on the night I was there. Really busy, get there early if you want one of the few tables, other than that enjoy the mosh. Good selection of beers and lagers and well served by friendly staff despite being very busy. Not for those who want a quiet pint!
