“Saturday Night”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

Four of us went to the Basement for Mi-Sex. got a table near the stage, ordered dinner with our drinks. Mojito's were very good........Our food was tasty and reasonable priced. Will go again as it is close to public transport......no need to try and get a parking spot in town.

“Lunch breaks are usually an hour...”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

We arrived for lunch on a Friday and waited 15 mins for service before taking it upon ourselves to order at the bar because the waitress still had not served us even though it wasn't very busy, in fact it was quiet.
After ordering, it took a further 45 minutes for the food to arrive on our table.
If you only get an hour for lunch, don't go here.

“Basement?? - Great!!”
Reviewed 9 March 2013 via mobile

After reading reviews prior I was a bit concerned that it would be disappointing.. however both the food and entertainment were exceptionally good for the money. Lovely small intimate venue with good service and a great night.

It 's been going for 40 years or more. It is open 7 days a week and has many great artists appearing there. It is not too loud either. it is very intimate.

“Good place to listen to great music”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

The range of music played here is fabulous but I wouldn't advise the ho hum food and thumbs down for serving decent wine in those horrid tiny old fashioned glasses.
