I'm a professional musician and we recently played at the Bunch of Grapes on a Bank Holiday.The pub was quite busy, but we were met by a friendly group opening the door for us as we brought our equipment in. The bar staff were all very helpful and professional and the audience were great. Some sat and listened and a few got up and danced along to the music.It was particularly nice to see the young regulars enjoying themselves and being so enthusiastic. Several came up to us afterwards and said how much they'd enjoyed the playing. That made my evening! Again they helped hold the doors open again and helped clear the way as we were getting the equipment back out.
One group of visitors were passing in the street and came in because they heard the music. They approached me afterwards and said it had been a real bonus to their evening. They'd been to a couple of pubs in town and this was their favourite. A great pub, which serves good good and regularly has live music. What more could you want?
Having played at ten venues this month I would recommend The Bunch of Grapes, particularly as there is not much else happening in the immediate area, and its really beneficial for local people and local musicians to have these great venues! Check it out!
