Nice little venue this, I love all the old features and it's tucked away slightly. I went to see Doug Stanhope here so I was nailed on to have a great time.

Never the best show around but everybody should visit this institution at least once in their lives, if only to ensure that it survives. Joining in is compulsory so be prepared.
