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

What I’ve loved about this place is how clean and caring the staff are. Come here a lot . Dirty tables, lack lustre service and very sad for those working weekends has now changed my opinion. Please improve.More

The Night Owl is a real hidden gem - a completely unique venue where you're welcomed with a smile! Music is great, caters to all tastes but still keeps retro music at the core of the night. Loved every minute of it!
