Attended Gary Barlow concert on 2 consecutive nights. Lovely atmosphere, easy to find, friendly and helpful staff. Close to pubs, places to eat and shops. Door security for bag checks but this didn't cause any major hold ups.

I love the Empire but have to say that charging £17.70 for 2 large wines is totally oto. I know it was a concert but really? It's not even that it was good wine because it wasn't. Sorry Empire a bit disappointed!!!
