Monroe's Live was a brilliant place to hold a fundraising table quiz for our rowing club. The ample space and seating suited us very well. We were really impressed with the staff who catered to every need. The pizzas also went down very well!

Really good venue. There is music upstairs and downstairs and plenty of room too. Well worth going to both for food and a night out!! Recently booked Monroe's for a party and couldn't have been happier. Food, live music, seating all spot on!!

Gave in my expensive hoodie and they gave me a ticket. When I came back with the ticket to get my hoodie back, the young lad could not find it. He called over a bouncer to come help him but he was no help either....More
