I have heard about this place but no one ever mentioned the price of drinks. I went to see the dreamboys for a works xmas party. The tickets where only £12 so I thought I would give it a go. Read the drinks menu and although it was over priced I thought a pitcher of cocktail should last a while... More

Saturday night visit, disappointing to stay the least. We were escorted to our table, nice touch, but the smell on entering was shall we say.. not very pleasant. Smaller venue thank I had imagined. Slow walk to table, as out feet stuck to the carpet, and I do not exaggerate! Disgusting! Acts came on for about 10 mins each time... More

Encouraged by other reviews me and my better half decided to give this place a try. Wasn't impressed. Not enough good looking men caught my eye and poor music. (Disappointed I didn't get to dance on the tables to YMCA)

Went in a group of 17 for a hen do. It's an odd kind of place, music was great and got everyone up dancing from the word go. The acts are fun and entertaining. Drinks are reasonably priced. Perfect for a hen doo. Slightly disappointed to be grunted at by the rude toilet attendant when I gave her my loose... More
