Excellent venue to see a group. Large area downstairs and upstairs tables around the balcony, behind is a raised seating area as well. Great set up.

I've seen a load of artists down the years and never been disappointed by this venue. The artists, yes! But not the venue. It's intimate without being too small, given the proximity of most areas to the stage over it's 2 levels. The sound is magnificant and there is easy access to both bars however crowded.

We came here on Saturday night to see Whole Lotta Led for the umpteenth time and have to say yet again that you cannot fault the place. Great staff and a fantastic night out - we are already booked to go again at the end of the month. Keep up the good work guys.

Great venue, nice selection of real ales and spirits. Proper stage with sound and lighting system and live music throughout the week. This is one of theose few gems that support local live music but hosting bands pretty much every night of the week. nice atmosphere. Highly recommended.

We go here all the time and see some pretty incredible bands. Their musicality is superb. The Santana tribute band (I can't remember their name) are fantastic!! As a couple in our mid 40's we are really comfortable in this venue and have enjoyed every visit. Even had my hen night there last October and it was brilliant!!

We had tickets to see Steven Seagal at The Brook, it was very easy to find and we parked in the industrial estate behind. What a fantastic place, we stood on the balcony overlooking the stage for most of the evening as we arrived later than we were hoping, had we arrived earlier I'm sure we would have been able... More
