    We have been a couple of times for birthday celebrations and absolutely love it. The friendly staff provide excellent service and the chocolate slate is such a lovely touch. £5 entry to listen to some fantastic performances on a weekend is a steal!

    Never been before and was a little apprehensive before I went. Only because I didn’t know what to expect and was coming out for a night out and wanted it to be a good night. It was fabulous it’s only a small tight nit venue and the atmosphere was lovely. Everyone was in good spirits singing and dancing along to the music. The musician put on a good show with songs we all recognised. The cocktails are amazing and the waiters were lovely. I will definitely be back

    Really enjoyed our evening, the music and the cocktail menu! We didn’t have anything to eat. Harriet Eaves with Nathan Jarvis accompanying on the piano - outstanding performers- really enjoyed the eclectic choices and Harriet’s voice is amazing.

    Really good atmosphere and great music and staff were kind and attentive. They remembered my partners birthday and brought some chocolates to celebrate and catered to our dietary needs. Had a lovely night. Thanks so much!
