Something a bit different, lots to offer, food not the best (but not bad) however, overall a really good and entertaining night out

“Great night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Great acts- we say Kevin Bridges here before he did the roadshow and became well known.
Reasonably priced drinks, great venue for comedy.

“Good food and Excellent entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We visited with friends and enjoyed the two course meal although it was a little bland and the portions were a tad small it did not give us reason to complain.
The entertainment was amazing and had my sides aching with laughter although one of the four comedians was not at all funny the other three more than made up for it as did the compare Dave Williams who was amazing.
We will definitely be returning soon

“Good could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We went on a saturday night.
My main problem with the place is the timings. They tell you to get there for 9 - the show should starts at 9.30. Everyone pours into the place about 9 and they have two bar staff on, one of whom dissapears. So when the other half asked why she wasnt being served to the guy said im not serving this side....Erm customers are waiting and your own - he did everntually serve us but there had been a 20 minute wait you fit about 10 people behind the bar and it should definatly been more than 2.
We got down for the comedy and after an hour theres an interval... 10 minutes apprently.... More like half an hour which totally killed the flow of the show... I didnt think the guy after the interval was the funniest and by towards the end of the last act the audience had thinned out considerably... Its also possibly the hottest venue ive ever sat in. I must have lost a stone while listenting to the comedy it really could do with some air con its a sweat fest.
