Lucky this time to have enjoyed all the acts! Angela Barnes being my favourite on the night (Sat 18th Feb). Staff are fabulous, bar has enough choice on offer and food looks much more inviting and interesting than a few years ago! Great venue and great acts!

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The drinks and reasonably priced. It was a really good night out, comedians were really funny. Food wasn't great for the price but all in all had an amazing time.. can't wait to go back soon!

First of all, the bouncers were fine; checked our passes and let us in no problems and didn't see them again until we left. Saw 4 comedians, each different from one another and equally as funny. The 'start/end/in-between each act lady' also hilarious with some good audience interactions (luckily we were sat near the back). We only had a dessert... More

I really want to like this place, love watching live comedy. The food is just bar snacks really so as long as you have the right expectations it is fine. Drinks we are ordered were on the table as requested and generally a pretty good evening. It was completely ruined by the over zealous bouncers who, come the end of... More

I went for the Comic Relief Live night on Thursday 9th February 2017. We'd never been before and I'd spent the previous evening reading TripAdvisor reviews in horror and wondering whether to tell my mam and dad... The bouncers = contrary to popular opinion, there was no issue I spotted at all, and nobody had their throat grabbed. The staff... More

Thank you for your kind comments, We will be sure to pass on your praise to our door staff as they often get treated unfairly and will doubt appreciate some recognition for their hard work.

We booked in advance as required and booked in with no problems. We found the door staff and receptionist very welcoming and friendly. We were shown to our table and thought all the seats were pretty close to the stage and had a good view. We had wine with a nice ice bucket to keep it cool and although we... More

Great venue, great comedy, awful food/service. My friend ordered chips which took over an hour to come. My other friends who had ordered food had theirs all come at different times, probably about a half hour interval in between each! - ridiculous ! If you can't handle a full venue (which is what it always is), then don't offer food... More

The bouncers are way over the top if you want to stay in there after paying I suggest you stick to drinking Coke because they chuck you out if you have more than 3 pints thinking you to drunk one guy was having the banter with the comedian the comedian even said he was fine but they continued to chuck...

Hi Mike Thank you for the review and your feedback. We are really pleased you enjoyed the night but saddened to hear that you weren't thrilled with your food. All of our food is freshly cooked to order and pre-orders come out shortly after you arrive. As you suggest, comedy is always a mixed bag and different subject matters and... More
