I went to the Laugh Inn for my birthday and it was a really enjoyable, quite cheap night out. The tickets were reasonably priced, as was the bar and food.
We did find that there wasn't enough room for people to wait before the show. But we were not waiting long until we were shown through into the bigger room. We had a really good night and won free tickets and so returned again.

I have since looked at visiting the Laugh Inn again but the prices have shot up. What used to be a casual night out with mates, is now an expensive one. I wanted to see a well known act (Sarah Millican) and twice the Laugh Inn have made people go to one day the week before-other wise you can't buy tickets to see Sarah Millican. The tickets for these nights are not too expensive, but i dont want to have to go to a night i dont want to go to in order to see an act I do want to see. Basically doubling the price to see Sarah Millican. Lots of well known acts do smaller gigs before big tours etc, but i've not seen anywhere else do this. It makes the place feel like they are money grabbing. Very disappointing after we enjoyed our first night there so much.

I have been to the Laugh Inn twice now, both times on Living Social deals and it has been excellent value.
On both occasions the offer has included pizza. Unfortunately these aren't great - too much crust, not enough sauce or toppings - however this is only the opinion of the group that went, everyone else seemed to think they were ok.
The acts that they have had on are great, most have been known names or faces and I must say the comperes have been great.
The second time we went the breaks seemed to be much longer, but this didn't appear to take away from the length of the acts, there was just little space around the seating area to hang around in.
All in all, we have enjoyed going to the Laugh Inn, it's a great place for us all to get together and have a great night.
Would definitely recommend!

Went to the Laugh inn , to see the owner, John locke, interview Peter Hook the bass player of
New Order .
Totally BRILLIANT . an night with a differnce . New Order are my husbands favourite group so he was well made up that we got tickets .
Before the show we shared a seafood platter which was very nice and well worth the money for two people .would highly recommend.
Mr Locke had done his homework before his interview ,was conparing him to Johnathen Ross .
The whole experienced was very enjoyable and ended with my husband and I having our photo taken with Peter Hook and our book signed .
WELL DONE to the laugh inn for a very good night out . will be returning soon .

We had a group booking of 20 people, and were all made very welcome upon our arrival. We order some great food from the bar, to enjoy with a refreshing pint of Laugh Inn larger!
When we were called through to the main room, seats had been reserved for our group, ensuring we'd all be seated together - which was a relief as it was packed! 
Fantastic compare, 3 great comedy acts, great food - brilliant night. 
Big thanks to all the staff, good value for money - Will definitely be returning.

Been to the laugh Inn a number of times. Being from Chester i can honestly say its what our city needed! For my birthday 10th Nov i decided to celebrate here this yr! Pushed boat out for vip table and all u can eat buffet! Food was fabulous service was great and the comedians were funny as hell! the venue is always clean and tidy the staff friendly and I've never had to queue at the bar! Being disabled there's a toilet downstairs and it is mainly all at one level! Buffet was upstairs but if advise staff they are always ready to help and would accommodate your needs ensuring your comfort! Don't understand the bad REVIEWS think they must have got confused and written on the wrong venue! Never had a bad experience here - so putting the record straight! It's a MUST DO if in Chester visiting or from the vicinity and wanting a value for money fabulous night out!!! :)
