We visited the bistro on a Saturday evening; meal was very good, great value and service. I particularly like the fact if you eat in the bistro and have bought tickets for the show they automatically reserve you a table downstairs in the comedy club also, this saves you having to rush a very good meal. We were in town... More

Very impressed on my first visit to the bistro. Menu isnt particularly innovative but what they do they do very well. The tempura prawns were great served with a toothsome and spicy dipping sauce. Although always tempted by comfort food options (burgers etc) I went for a caribbean flavoured fish and rice dish, very nice indeed with some clean and... More

I have been to The Stand Comedy Club a number of times & eaten burgers which have always been tasty so as we were in town shopping decided to have late lunch in the Bistro. We ordered a sausage and mash and a chicken roast. The sausages had a mustard mash and onion gravy which was very tasty and the... More

Delicious meal and awesome comedy venue downstairs. Great choice on the menu. My favourite is the prawn starter. And love trying out the different mains. Always a great welcome. Always look forward to our girls night out there. Best atmosphere.

I came here with a friend and went for the pre-show meal. The food was top notch and the service was good. The stand up downstairs was really good as well. Definitely book ahead though, as finding a table on the night could be tricky. The bar does get busy at the interval, but this is to be expected really.

i arrived here with some friends quite late due to the time it takes some people to get ready. Nothing was a problem, we were shown downstairs to a table within the comedy venue since we had missed our slot in the restaurant by a considerable time. The courteous staff furnished us with some lists for the lite menu and... More

We ate here before a comedy performance in October 2014. It was absolutely lovely. I started with the Tempura Prawns and they were the nicest I have tasted in a long time. I then had a curry which was lovely. All of my friends enjoyed their meals as much. I will certainly be back.

The food here was lovely and good value. I had the char sui pork and rice which was delicately flavoured and had a lovely yoghurt dressing; my friend had the lentil bobottie which she liked, not a 'wet' stew as she imagined but nice with a good salad. The mains were filling enough we didn't have room for dessert. A... More

A return visit to this venue was not a let down. We booked a few days ahead as we knew that it can get busy and we needed to finish in time for the show in the basement. This time it was steady but no one was left waiting for a table. The welcome was friendly and efficient. The menu... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat and town was busy as it was the weekend of the Great North Run so we left the main streets and come down to the Stand. We got a table straight away from the very helpful staff and had a lovely meal. I just didn't expect the comedy club to have such a... More
