We were going to the Stand for their Friday Comedy Night and decided to eat first in the Bistro. The menus choice was great and the food was excellent. An added advantage is that the Stand will then reserve you a table for the entertainment...More

8 oz steak was perfectly cooked (medium) and the garlic roasted tomatoes were lovely and although the fries were tasty the reason I can't give a 5 is because I (and my husband) would have preferred thicker chips. Plus what about wholemeal rolls for the...More

We already knew Comedy Bistro for its great atmosphere, kind staff and good coffe. We can't say the same for the dinner: good looking plate but not so good taste. We'll come back eventually, but just for a coffe.

Excellent food in a good atmosphere. Plenty of choice on the Menu. Good range of drinks available too. There is the added bonus of the Comedy Club in the basement.
