Been here many times before and do like this venue. However after a swift queue in, we went to take coats to cloakroom and it was £2.50 per coat. I think someone must think it’s moved the venue to London! In Exeter at all gigs...More

I'm 5 ft 2 and while I've always struggled to get a good view of the stage, this place is absolutely horrendous! Went to see Halestorm, but I think I may have seen the top of her head twice. The layout is just awful, people...More
