I visited the Flowerpot to see a band. The music venue itself was excellent, but it also seemed to be a great pub in itself. A fantastic selection of beers, and very friendly service. Overall, a really good bar/venue. I hope to return soon.

Very clean and comfortable room. Great idea of having a kitchenette available for late night and breakfast at no additional cost. Brilliant location for city centre and if there happens to be a band or group playing it's a perfect night out.

Lovely room, comfy bed and friendly staff. We stayed for 2 nights (Fri and Sat). Only thing that let it down is breakfast food did not get restocked xx

If you are a real ale drinker then his is the place from you, what a great selection. On a Tuesday they also do a "curry" night which quite a few customers were having it looked very good.

Excellent band in a really atmospheric friendly venue. I booked the tickets in advance over the internet. A really simple transaction. Just showed the email on my phone. If you like small, intimate venues with great music then this is definitely the place for you.
