Excellent atmospher, brilliant unusual bar and venue. An amazing selection of craft beers and lovely friendly staff. My family really enjoyed the selection of vinyl records available on sale. I would definitely recommend especially the music and artistic officiados.

Saw a very good production of Mistero Buffo which was extremely well suited to this compact but versatile theatre bar. Very nice to be seated on a comfy sofa with a proper drink in your hand for a theatrical presentation.

Friendly owners who also host the fringe festival. Made us very welcome to browse vinyl on sale, reasonably priced bar and hot drinks, comfy retro style seating. Some kind of interesting board game being played by a group of regulars. Will definitely return.
