“good vibes in a bit of a dive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

To call it a dive is unfair as its unpretentious and far from false. It has character, frequented at times by some colourfull characters, where you can be yourself in a friendly,laid back atmosphere.

The only gripe is most of the time you don't know when the bands are going to start playing, this means sometimes your waiting an hour/hour and half..sometimes longer for a band to play after the advertised door opening time. Also it seems that if not enough tickets are sold the gig is cut short, ive been to a few gigs where the band has only played for an hour or so..and when a ticket is over £15 you feel you're not getting value for money...However for as long as this venue is open I'll be supporting it, as its unique for the area

“HEBDEN BRIDGE TRADES CLUB”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

This small entertainments venue gets some superb acts, on a regular basis. It`s downfall is it is scruffy, and the outside is a mess, with broken glasses and cigarette butts spoiling the area. Worth a visit if you are into folk music etc.

“Badly in need of TLC”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

While it gets some good concerts in a fairly small space (capacity 200) the venue badly needs some TLC. Loos are barely functional and grim, the bar is plain and unattractive, the gig venue is functional with decent lighting, sound and atmosphere. The entrance hall is uncared for and unattractive. Bar staff are slow and part-timers but you can say that for most bars in UK.
