    Hen do to remember
    Fantastic show! Attended as a party of 15 for my hen do and enjoyed every minute. The food was delicious and waiting service was great. The Drag show was outstanding. They put so much effort into the show and their singing was excellent, especially the gorgeous Sally. Thank you for a fab night!

    Fantastic evening
    Went for my daughter's Hen Do, absolutely fantastic evening!! We were a group of 16 ranging from late twenties to mid seventies and everyone had the best time. The Drag Queens and King worked so hard and kept everyone laughing, singing and cheering all night. The food was delicious, nice and hot and delivered efficiently. Thoroughly recommend Ruby's as a brilliant fun night out, well done Foxy and the team!

    Best place in Bournmouth
    We had a great time last Saturday for our brides hen do! Paddy was amazing really at getting us in last minute due to have two other companies let us down last minute. All the queens really made us feel welcome and was a great combo of fun and ribbing (the disco at the end was the right mix of cheese and nostalgia too) <3 A must see show and cant wait to come again <3 #MONSOOOOON

    The best night
    Rubyz is absolutely amazing. I was surprised with a night here for my hen party and Foxy and Sally did not disapppoint. It was so so funny and the songs were fantastic. Would recommend. The food was also very yummy. Sally and Foxy stayed around after for chats and photos and they were so lovely even though they are total biatches in their act (which we wanted!!). Memories for a lifetime.. trying to plan occasions so I can visit again

    Amazing hen do with hilarious entertainment
    We went to Rubyz for my cousins hen do and it was a night to remember. The 3-course dinner before the show was really tasty and they catered for dietary requirements really well (we had a few in our party). The drinks were really reasonable and the bar staff were so friendly. The warm up act was brilliant, she had a great voice and got us all ready for the show. Foxy and Sally, the two Queens, were incredible! One of the funniest evenings I've ever had. Our faces all hurt from smiling and laughing. They stayed around for photos after the show and they were so lovely! The disco after the show was a fab addition...everyone really let their hair down! Thanks so much Rubyz, Foxy and the team!

    Best Christmas Party Ever!
    We had our work’s Christmas do at Rubyz. It was brilliant! From the warm welcome, until the disco finished, we had a great time and lots of laughs. After the excellent meal, Foxy, Sally and Dandy Issues kept us well entertained with their signing, games and revelry. Great value and drinks were reasonably priced. We’ll be back..!

What a night and where to begin!? We booked our tickets way back in December 2019 to see the show in March 2020! And then as we all know the pandemic hit. Patrick stayed in touch with us the whole time being extremely flexible with the rebooking of the show! And I can honestly say it was more than worth the wait! We were a group of 7 and all left with out sides hurting from laughing so much. True entertainment from the start. Rude, crude & cutting edge! We loved everything from the songs to the interaction! Not one table is left out. Foxy & Sally we will be back, you honestly gave us the best night <3

Wow, these folks not only have normally a fantastic show in their usual venue they have stepped up to the plate in the face of the challenges of covid. Not able to be on their normal stage, they have taken us into their homes every week and have kept us laughing and laughing. Big thank you for keeping us all sane with all the songs, challenges and comedy.
I am sure that everyone will beating down the doors of Rubyz to see you all in person once lockdown in finished, till then thanks again in advance for the Facebook live shows still to come.

Some really funny bits but there were other parts where we felt we were lost at times. I think they need to work on a clearer storyline that everyone could follow a bit better?
Also there were a lot of tables in there and they went round every table talking to each one - I think if they have a high number of tables they need to just speak to a few as this bit really dragged!🙈
We also felt that the women shouting out and attention seeking trying to get the drag artists attention ruined it a bit. There should be a security guard or similar watching and having a quiet word with anyone who keeps speaking out of turn.
Great voices, great song choices and great food and a fun evening, just needs a little tweaking to be 10/10.
I'm a performer myself and work in the entertainment industry FYI :)

If you want a night of laughter and entertainment this is the place for you. We were a hen party of 13 ladies and 1 guy and I think we all split our sides with laughter a some point during the evening. The 2 Drag Queens were so entertaining and fantastic at getting the audience involved. They dealt with hecklers very well and put them in their place with fun and laughter.
The menu changed from when we first booked before the lockdown to when we could finally attend and the new menu wasn’t as exciting as the original one and there were a couple of mishaps on the plate. The falafel didn’t come with the Yummy Rich Pepper Hummus but with sour cream and the kitchen had no answers for the waitress why this was and the 3 Loaded BBQ pork Sliders only came with 1 slider but apart from that a truly worth while night out!

Wow, what a fun night!! We booked the food/show package for a hen-do.

Great fun, interactive & just a different night out. You can enjoy it stone cold sober too!

All the queen's were great singers & absolutely hilarious, I've not laughed so much on a night out in ages. After the show the queen's happily chatted to everyone & were so patient having tons of pics taken.

Hair, make-up & outfits were fabulous & all the song choices were brilliant!

The food came out around 8pm, then the show pretty much started, this lasted until maybe 1030 I think.

After the show is finished there is a disco afterwards with all sorts played.

It all finished at midnight.

My only negatives was the food was average, not bad, but don't expect anything more than basic pub food.
The hotel itself is also dated & just a bit tired BUT don't let this put u off, the entertainment is worth it.

Greeting/Bar staff & wait-staff all friendly & food & drinks were prompt.

It's an easy walk into the town centre or taxis can be booked literally by a bell in the reception.

Thanks for a great night & ill definitely be back!

An absolute amazing evening from start to finish. Could not recommend it more.
Put a smile on everyone’s face. Great venue, great food. The show was simply hilarious. Everyone was made to feel a part of the magic and everyone went home buzzing with excitement.

I went to Rubyz for my hen party and it was the best decision to go. It was so well organised, the drag queens were fantastic, clever and funny. They give the audience the chance to join in and go around each table and give everyone a chance to join in. I got pulled up to be part of a comic sketch which made the night so memorable. Definitely will be coming back- please do yourself a favour and go too you won't regret it!

Came here for my Stag Do in April 2022 as a surprise arranged by the Best Man who was initially worried how it might have turned out. He needn't have worried. We were greeted by a fantastically entertaining show, with singing, jokes and the mickey being taken out of the audience non-stop! The artists were brilliant at keeping on top of the night and thd crowd and were clearly enjoying their night too.

I would recommend this to anyone who just wants a bloody good night out.

This event was a shambles from start to finish with a few laughs in between. With no formal welcome, once at the table we we not informed about how to get drinks, water etc. The ‘stand-in’ sound engineer was diabolical and had no idea what to do. Consequently the performers often stopped mid-routine to dash to the sound booth to give instructions. The food was a disaster. Clearly frozen, direct from ‘Iceland’. Rubbery beef burgers, stale buns, tasteless lasagne - the list is endless. The first act veered towards boredom following the sixth rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’. The act comprised of the compere spending almost an hour and a half talking to each of sixteen tables asking for their reasons to be there. The second act, unfortunately, was worse. Largely incomprehensible, mainly improvised and hindered by two guests deciding to have a full blown argument, drowning out anything being said by the ‘performers’. For an event that was scheduled to finish at 10:30pm, the actual finish time of 11:45pm added nothing to an event that was undoubtedly, an unmitigated, disaster.

Sorry, you had a disappointing evening. Here at Rubyz, we understand that what we do is not going to be everybody's cup of tea. It was unfortunate that we did have our sound engineer off on holiday and our backup engineer was pinged by the covid app. This meant we did have an inexperianced sound engineer standing in at the last minute. I am not going to answer your grievances on this public forum, but If you do wish to discuss your evening with us you can contact me at info@rubyzcabaret.co.uk We do improvise We are rude, We swear and we are crude. Some people will not like this. We don't hide this fact. It is on our web site and all our publicity. I make no apologies for what we are as many people love what we do. As I said I am sorry you had a disappointing evening. I hope you and your soon-to-be new husband have a long and happy life together. Thank you for giving us a try. signed Foxy xx Head of unmitigated disasters,

I’m not new to RubyZ I organized my sister’s Hen party to see these Lovely Ladies a few years ago and had such a giggle I had my Hen Party March 2019 was such a great laugh. But tonight I had entered a Facebook running competition and Won fantastic a meal for 2 and evening out. This time I took the now Husband along and we had a lovely time lots of giggles and a lovely evening social distances and good food. So much of a great night we were evening talking about planning our next night out here. Definitely good if you want a few giggles, a bit of music they have Fantastic voices especially Foxy, Sally and Got to say we had the pleasure to even see Mrs Foxy (Foxy’s Wife) preform and her voice was incredible. As I was saying a good night for giggles food and a few drinks without the hassle of a busy night out it’s not just for girls, honestly girls if your other half has a sense of humor get booking some tickets you won’t be disappointed. 😊
