My husband and I had a night out here whilst spending a weekend in Edinburgh. After enjoying the one in Newcastle we thought we'd try this one out and it did not disappoint. The comedians were great, the compère (I think her name was Suzie!?! Apologies, I'd had a few wines!) was particularly funny, definitely the favourite of the evening.... More

Get there early! Limited seating in this intimate comedy club meant that the good tables quickly went. The food was fantastic, great value and very generous in portions! Drinks weren't too expensive and the staff were friendly. Oh, and start queuing early! At least 15 minutes before the doors open. Now, onto the comedy... Fantastic! A great line up. The... More

For the last nine years we have gone to this venue for their New Years eve to bring in Hogmanay with always a good line up of comics. This year was as good as we hoped it would be with a great line up of talent keeping everyone laughing and in good spirits for the bells. The food is tasty... More

Me and my partner attended whilst visiting Edinburgh and were pleasantly surprised with this little place. We arrived early to ensure a seat as there aren't many, however they have as many as possible. The show was a free one that we seen and it was still really good. The only bad point is the fosters lager was flat and... More

We recently visited the stand while on a work night out. I have to say that I was apprehensive as I feared it might be rather unsociable. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Each of the three acts including the compare were hilarious! We all had a great time and laughed a lot... Highly recommended!!
