This place is free to get in which was great for our hen party. The place is a little small but the band we saw were great and there was a really good atmosphere. I would definitely go back again.

Great coffee spot at the station, and not too bad early evening at times, usually get some great up and coming bands on site too, serious issues with underage drinkers though and staff not checking. And even bigger issue with drugs on site put that together with the late night hours and you just get an awful atmosphere with not... More

We're sorry you felt this way about drug use - we have a very strict no drugs policy in the venue, and take appropriate measures to try and prevent drug use. Unfortunately it may still... More

Always a good night out. Great environment and good live music. A definite recommendation for any stay in windsor. Generally a good mix of people with a broad age range makes for a lively enjoyable night. Reasonable priced drinks.

I've been to the Old Ticket Hall many times and I've really enjoyed myself each visit. Drinks are reasonably priced, service is quick, the bar has a lot of character ( the bar itself used to be the ticket office at the station). The music is fantastic with varied artists but everyone I've seen is very talented. A great night... More
