‘If it’s funny, it’s funny’ was the slogan for last night’s events. And it patently was because the large audience roared with laughter as comedy was unleashed in torrents. Self-censorship was off the agenda and was hugely appreciated. The venue is great, with a good...More

Perfect night out with a fun, quirky bar including a pool table and table tennis table, extremely reasonably priced food and drink. £5 on Thursdays is insanely cheap as is £10 on a Saturday. Every time I have been the comedy has been excellent, read...More

Visited Friday a week ago and was disappointed that both comedians on the bill failed to show up. I know it's only a fiver...which is good value...but isn't that still misleading and deceptive conduct? I didn't notice any explanation but for the fine print on...More

Hello! Thanks for your review. Our Friday night comedy shows always feature five comedians including the MC, sometimes due to circumstances beyond our control the line-ups do change and we have to rectify the information on our website - this can be a last minute...More

Compere was extremely crude - cheap laughs. People were laughing out of embarrassment. Wasn't funny. Other comedians were funny. Pizza took an hour and a quarter to arrive. Limited menu. Won't be going back.More
