Myself and partner went on a Sunday afternoon, for the ska/reggae event, there was a BBQ on the go as well and the beer is a great price. Danced the afternoon away in a fun, family friendly place.

Used to love going to the Night Owl as it played a mix of Soul, Motown and Northern Soul that you could dance to, in recent times I've found it to play anything from the 60s including some stuff that you cannot dance to, leaving...More

This is what is for me the best night club in the country. Its quite small but boasts a massive friendly atmosphere. The drinks and entry price are reasonable and they are currently hosting some terrific live music events.

I've had good nights there but Saturday was a big disappointment. The Jam tribute was fine, although the million people allowed in made it a bit cosy. And the fight wasn't anything to do with the club, but the music after, come on ... Ok...More

Love the vibe in the Night Owl, it's a great place to watch bands and dance the night away. Staff are super friendly and drinks are reasonably priced. The cocktails made by Jessie are fantastic and the selection on offer rotates all the time! Love...More
