Utterly disrespectful and obnoxious manager.
Sep 2021 • Friends
What could have been a great evening, with very funny comedians was unfortunately ruined by the most obnoxious and smug manager I have ever come across.

There was a large group of us who attended, and after taking out seats and ordering drinks, I decided to order food. Others in my group had ordered other meals, and duly received those meals (though none were the same order as my own).

Over an hour went by, and I still hadn’t received my meal. So, after the first act, I went to the bar and notified the first person who’s attention I got to notify them. Unfortunately, this person happened to be the manager, and his immediate response was, someone else in your party probably ate it. Bemused, I said to him, this was very unlikely as I was the only one who ordered pizza. He took a picture of my order confirmation, said he would look into it and walked off. I asked if he’d like me to wait, he said no, so I went back to my chair.

He appeared 5 minutes later with a receipt, put it down in front of me and said, I told you someone had eaten it. I’m not sure how a receipt proved this, but I turned to my party and asked whether anyone had been given my pizza and eaten it, to which they all replied that they hadn’t. The managers response to this was “well they’re hardly going to admit it are they”. Absolutely shocked that he was insinuating that one of our party had stolen food and we were now trying to get extra food for free, I asked for a refund so the matter could be dropped. He said yes and walked off.

He then came round to the other side of where we were sat and said “this isn’t my first stag do”. Clearly he was for some reason agitated and then was trying to wind up members of our party about it.

Unfortunately, this was not the end of it. 20 minutes or so later, they brought the food to me, which was no bad thing, because I was relying on this for my dinner. However, 2 minutes later he walked over and slammed £17 down in front of me, and again said, “there you go, even though one of your lot ate it”. I said to him “I promise you we are not trying to steal food, please take this money back” but he refused. (I ended up giving it to our waiter as a tip, though anyone working for such an obnoxious and arrogant person deserved more money than that!)

The manager then continued to make sarcastic comments to members of our party when we would go to the toilet. The whole situation was absolutely shocking, disgusting and outright unbelievable.

I will never go back to an establishment being managed by someone this utterly horrible and I will actively tell friends and family to avoid whilst under his management.

Really good fun!
Aug 2021
We had a great girls night out here. We booked our tickets online (extortionate booking fee - £1.75 each but charged per person, even though the tickets were purchased in one transaction) and were happy with our seats when we arrived. We were on tables behind the front semi-circle so a nice distance from the stage without risk of being picked on for jokes!

The drinks were all ordered via QR code and I couldn't fault the service! The drinks came out at the speed of light and we also ordered some bar food, all of which came out hot, fresh and tasty.

We saw 3 different comedians, plus the host so 4 really, which was great value. The host was funny, the first act was funny, the second act was clever but slapstick comedy so not really my taste, and the third act was the funniest of them all. I liked that they included a mix of comedy styles so there was something for everyone!

Great comedy but a mixed bag in terms of Covid precautions
Jun 2021 • Couples
Visited the early performance of Rhys James (4:30pm doors) where the performance had been split into 2 half showings for distancing purposes.

Everything started well with the checking-in and guidance re. seating and ordering via the QR code/website with table service. Orders delivered quicky and safely. Spacing of tables felt very Covid-safe.

However, the requirement to wear masks while not eating or drinking was neither reminded nor enforced. Most people had food and/or a drink and so had masks off for the entire performance, including when laughing. We appeared to be the only people putting our masks back on after taking a sip of drink. Being near the front breath from all of the people behind us was heading in our direction and the direction of the stage, which was unnerving and spoiled what was otherwise an enjoyable first comedy gig since early 2020.

We would think twice about returning in the near future under the same arrangements.

Great, safe night out in a cracking venue
Jun 2021 • Couples
Well organised with social distancing and all covid regulations. Felt very comfortable in the venue and all the team were friendly and welcoming including the security team. Plenty of socially distanced seating and drinks were waiting for us on our table. Food came out pretty quickly too and was tasty and hot.
Couple of negative points for us - we went out to the smoking area before the show, but couldn't get back in - when the door staff let us in, we went up to the balcony but the door was locked, so after nipping up and down several flights of stairs, the security team sorted everything for us and got us back in. The second point was the steps behind the back seats on the balcony aren't lit very well and a chap on a table to the side of us went flying.
Apart from those 2 small points we had a great night and will certainly be back. Great location, outstanding range of acts acts a super easy booking process all take the hassle out of the night and make it a more enjoyable experience. We'll done team Glee, Nottingham

So Cold !!!
May 2021
Four of use went to see Billy Lockett. Door entry was fine and we had to queue through the closed bar, not a problem ( some background music would of been nice, we were seated at table 461 which was opposite the doors leading downstairs to the smoking area. Two lots of double doors each with one door hooked open (fire doors even!) the draught from these doors was very cold our hands and feet frozen we asked for them to be closed but no one did it.We even closed to doors themselves but were pinned back open,they were eventually closed at 9pm when Billy lockett started his set. A security guy stood in from of the door but staff members kept going through them and the doors were noisy at one point even startling the singer who had to start one song again. What could of been a brilliant evening was marred by being so cold and the constant noise coming from these doors.

Great Saturday Night Out
Oct 2020 • Couples
We visited amidst all the social distancing rules and I'm pleased that I felt safe. A one way system, hand sanitisers, named and separated tables and table service after ordering online or on the app. They have it well organised. There were three comedians on and the compare - all were very funny and had me laughing out loud. We ordered food as we were tempted even though we'd eaten a two course meal beforehand 🤦‍♀️. The food came quickly and was hot. All in all a great night out.

Brilliant night
Mar 2020 • Couples
Fantastic night out, with good entertainment, the only downside tables are rather small and squished together which resulted in personal space being constantly invaded.

Great venue and great laughs
Jan 2020 • Friends
Busted for the first time last night and will definitely be returning. The venue itself is very nice and clean with comfy seats and plenty of space. The drinks and food were both a very reasonable price and this made it more enjoyable as there was no penny counting. The acts were varied and suited a wide range tastes. Overall fantastic night.
