Attended a gig on Monday 11th, an excellent intimate venue with a great view as the stage is elevated. The only downside I found were the prices at the bar, £6.50 for a pint of watered down cola and a bottle of water!!

Great choice of vegan dishes. If burgers and other 'meaty' dishes are your thing. Strong flavours. Nice bar too

Grabbed a bite to eat before seeing a gig on a Sunday night. The Vegan food was delicious. Really well done. Cocktails were ok but not great. Best to stick to beer. Historic old building was nice. Overall, a great spot to hang out and...More

Visited to see Dan Patlansky brilliant guitarist at this unusual venue. Small but very quirky with amazing sound and a chance to be part of the concert due to its intimate proximity with the audience. Would recommend and will visit again.

This photo was a £9 burger. When it arrived it looked like it was missing something, to be informed that actually it was what "I" had ordered. It was the smallest burger I had ever seen and for £9 it definitely wasn't worth that, more...More
