Nice venue, but when the band started felt far too crowded. Also too loud. 70s band so most of audience were of an age....not necessary to be so loud.

What’s wonderful pub/gig venue! Went to see the excellent Cloud Busting Kate Bush tribute band. It was very easy to find the venue and it had public car parking very close by. The pub had a nice relaxed atmosphere with an impressive selection on beers....More

I love it here. The beer choice is epic and the staff are friendly. I keep meaning to go when there's a band on as I hear its a great venue. This will definitely be a regular haunt in the winter

I visited the Flowerpot to see a band. The music venue itself was excellent, but it also seemed to be a great pub in itself. A fantastic selection of beers, and very friendly service. Overall, a really good bar/venue. I hope to return soon.

Very clean and comfortable room. Great idea of having a kitchenette available for late night and breakfast at no additional cost. Brilliant location for city centre and if there happens to be a band or group playing it's a perfect night out.
