Was lucky enough to have Dave Johns on what would be an average night of comedy. He stole the show. Staff seemed happy and certainly provided a quick service. Good Saturday night out - average prices.

Booked this at short notice as looking something to do but so glad we did. The acts on our night were great and had us in stitches loads. Comedy can be hit and miss but we got a great night and would definitely recommend.

We took our 11 and 16 yrs old was very good, better for the younger ones with some good interactions and fun for adults too. Great price for an afternoon out.

You can buy tickets on their website or on the door. They take advance ticket sales for future shows too. As for accommodation there's loads wait for a last minute deal .
