Great choice of beers, bit surprised to be told at 1230 on Saturday afternoon that food would take 30-35 minutes when the place wasn’t that busy. Having said that, I can forgive an establishment that’s booked ‘Wreckless Eric’ to play almost anything.

This place is exactly what small venues are all about. Tight and intimate with a capacity of around 200 and great sound. There is a small bar in the concert room and a large bar outside where food is also available. Great place.

I’ve watched and photographed bands numerous times at the Cluny in both rooms- lately in a wheelchair aswell and found the staff very helpful. Cluny 2 is accessible for wheelchair users, not sure re Cluny 1 yet. Nice selection if real ales.

Great place to watch a band. The room is really atmospheric, in the style of a cellar bar, small enough to be reasonably intimate but big enough for a decent crowd. There is a bar with food and drink, including a good range of beers....More
