Excellent night, great atmosphere and fantastic music upstairs. Just what was needed for a small venue - full of like minded people.

First time here and no better way to break my venue duck than seeing Noasis play. Upstairs to the Main Stage you'll find a good sized room with an ample stage at one end and the bar to one side. Nice buzz about the place,...More

Small standing only venue.Sticky carpet, toilets covered in band stickers. Absolutely love it. Long may it continue.

Proper old school music venue with friendly staff and prices that aren’t ridiculous. Came here last night and had a great time. Will certainly return.

Fun place, great crowd, good atmosphere - no frills, but it's all about the great music. The 5.00pm slot on a Sunday is such a great way to keep the weekend going for just that bit longer...highly recommend.
