I agree with the last reviewer. The tables are set so that when the double doors open there is an icy draft. I don’t like to have to sit in my coat, hat and gloves to enjoy my drink. They need to revamp the position...More

I have visited The Apex twice recently. It’s a very nice venue, easy to get to with plenty of cheap parking nearby. The building is well maintained and clean. On the minus side. The gents toilets (upstairs) could do with being bigger, every time I...More

Such a pity that somewhere that is easy to reach and cheap to park close to is let down by the sound system. We have noticed on our last few visits that the so called backing band has tended to drown out the vocalswhichwas annoying!...More

Excellent venue. Nice small intimate hall. Excellent sound quality. Good atmosphere. £4.80 a bit steep for a pint and a half of Coca Cola.
