My partner bought tickets to the 5 new faces of comedy show. Didn't stop laughing from start to finish! The bar was very reasonably priced and also offer snacks and pizza for half time which I thought was a great touch!! Will definitely be coming back again

Fabulous place ! Bar was reasonably priced and the comedy was great. We went on a Sunday so it was the "new comedy" night. We saw 8 comedians, 7 of which I thought were hilarious the other was alright. Can't believe it was only a pound each (student price!) absolutely fab, we will be back. Thanks for a great night.

Went tonight and for the price I was disappointed. 3/4 of the acts were below expectation; thank goodness for the last act who was a real throw back to proper humour. Won't be rushing back. Lady behind the bar needs to learn how to relate to customers too.

My wife had reservations for us there for our anniversary vacation. The booking was for a 2 course meal and entrance deal. The food was delicious even though it wasn't something special it was good and filling. The acts were really funny. We spent there 4 hours and we didn't even feel them pass by from all the laughing.

we went on a Sunday as its £5 per person and only £1 for a student, just as good as the Saturday would definitely recommend it!

My wife booked this for us - combined 2 course meal and entrance deal. Meal was very good actually, whilst a bit basic it was tasty and filling, good quick service. Onto the comedians - 5 booked but 1 got stuck in traffic but this did not spoil the night, the compare was very good and kept the whole night... More

Good acts and good venue. Not too cramped like some comedy clubs. £22 seems a little on the high side but worth the money. Bar is reasonably priced. If you sit on the upper tier theres a convenient door up the very back for those interval drinks.

Absolutely hilarious lineup. Feel sorry for the hens from Grimsby that became the butt of a hail of fish jokes on the night we went :P great venue and vibe and right in the centre amongst the life and soul of the city. Top rating!

Went for the first time with a group of 10. Having never been before didn't really know what to expect. Large bar area and dining areas to relax in before and after the show. The show is downstairs in a 500 seat auditorium where you can either pre book seats to reserve or its first come first served basis.we took... More
