Living in Hoole I've to the laugh in a few times in various occasions but less to in recent times due to the lack of good bookings. The venue is good, nice set up, good size, decent bar, the only thing that's missing is the most important part - the show! I walk past often and always check out the... More

Visited when it first opened a few years back. It has since closed. Part owned by Jason Manford it had good comedians and shows but I think it was just located in the wrong area of Chester.

Booked a group here and we were very well looked after. The pizzas were really nice, and we had good seats. I thought the acts were good, certainly good enough to keep us all entertained. The bouncers dealt very politely and patiently with a friend in our party who was quite drunk and quite vocal.

Organised a Christmas do there for 20 people. Paid through the nose for VIP tickets with food. Got served Iceland frozen food as the buffet, comedy was average at best, and the customer service was appalling. Needs a major rehaul of the customer experience starting with the uber aggressive and arrogant meatheads on the door

Thank you for your feedback. As you know, we have tried to sort this matter out internally, with the offer of free tickets in January or February, which were refused, but you have chosen to bring the matter to tripadvisor, 4 months later. Our prices are at an industry standard, and ALL entertainment venues will up prices over the festive... More

Have now been to the Laugh Inn a couple of times and will definitely be making it a regular night out. Staff are friendly, no queuing at the bar and plenty of beer choices. The three comedians we saw on Friday were fab and the Danny the MC is a marvel.
