We found this place via Trip Advisor and I must say the reviews are right... this place is brilliant. The food was fantastic, we had a delicious three course meal, I would recommend trying the pork belly. As for the entertainment, Johnny certainly delivers. He is a lovely man who knows how to entertain. This place is great for friends,... More

I read lots of reviews and booked for Friday night around Easter. Johnny was outside to meet and greet which was good customer service. The restaurant is little dated but cosy and friendly. The staff were pleasant and quick to take our order. No starters as we wanted dessert, so ordered the fillet steak. I was how asked how I... More

We visited with a large group for my Dads 60th and were treated to an amazing experience. The food was incredible, the pork belly was particularly sublime! The entertainment was brilliant and Johnny really works the room well and gets the audience participating/dancing on the tables/singing/tambourine playing. Can't recommend this place enough!

We were in the area and as we like a bit of live music we decided to give Johnny Hoopers a shot... as the night went on we realised it was a great call! The venue itself is comfortably sized inside with funky decor and I'm guessing would sit 70 or 80 people inside. For food, the menu was nice... More
