“10 year's since last visit!”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Ventured back to the Glee Club (was Jongleurs) after a 10 year gap. Quite slick getting in and keen hosts (James and ?Freya). Sat second row back from front and only one couple on front row (8 seats), probably should have moved people up to fill the void. Irish compere was excellent and the 3 acts good, shame Charlie Baker as main act not on for long. Didn't order food and it appeared it was chaos in the kitchen. Would probably return as good value for money.

Julie,

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review of your visit to The Glee Club Oxford, especially as it’s your first visit in such a long time. We really do appreciate all feedback, positive or constructively critical.

Both James and Freya are two of our most enthusiastic members of staff who take pride in their work and are considered to be an asset to the venue, we’ll make sure that your comments are passed onto them personally.

Regarding the empty seats, we completely agree with you, these should have been filled to help with the intimacy of the show. This will be brought up with our Show Manager.

If you decide to visit us again please do try the food, we've recently launched a new menu to very positive responses. We’re confident that it’s good value for money and tasty to boot. Make sure you check our web site for upcoming shows, there is a food inclusive option over Christmas that may take your fancy.

Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon.

All of the team at The Glee Oxford

“A great experience”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

This was my first visit to Glee in Oxford and I'm going back again for more. We were a group of 4 and none of us had been before. There was a good size audience considering there was a World Cup match playing in the bar downstairs. We were all really impressed with the service - hosts Freya and James were super throughout the night - really friendly and eager for guests to have a good time. We ordered food, not expecting anything spectacular, but it was delivered quickly, was hot and fresh (the sweet potato fries were the best I've ever had, anywhere), the burgers were huge and absolutely delicious - overall the food was really, really good, which was a lovely surprise. Service was great, from wait to bar staff - fast, efficient and friendly - and everyone seemed to be happy to be working there, which is always a good sign.

3 Comedians performed, introduced by a really funny compere - it was all entertaining. They were all skilled, had us in stitches at some points, an entertaining evening for sure. Our group laughed, had a good time, overall definitely a fantastic night out and happy to be going back again with friends.

“Top night out from start to finish!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

This was my first visit to Glee Comedy Club and I will certainly be back again! A group of us visited for a friend's birthday and we all thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The food we ordered was excellent, the drinks were reasonably priced and the staff were all friendly and professional. The three comedians and the host were all hilarious, and the atmosphere in the club was brilliant throughout the evening.

I'd recommend this night to anyone, especially if you fancy doing something a bit different before a night out!

“Great entertainment”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

We visited the Glee Club at the end of May 2014 whilst on a overnight stay in Oxford. Their were 3 stand-up comedians, each with their own style but all as entertaining and funny as each other. We had some food whilst there which was good value for money and very tasty given the price. The only down side is that it took quite a long time to get service at the bar

After the show you can go clubbing down stairs if you want to and it don't cost you any more which is a added bonus

I would recommend paying the Glee Club a visit
