A group of us visited The Birdcage for a friends hen do, I had been once before a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. This time however, I was slightly disappointed. Like a lot of the other reviews have said, there was absolutely loads of club music with one drag act slotted in between. We would have liked to... More

Surrounded by gaggles of women on their hen do's, shoes sticking to carpets that need a serious cleaning, a dance floor that is too small, the two stars given are solely for the acts performing, who were only brilliant if you had seriously imbibed on the over priced drinks.. Come on Birdcage, live up to the reputation!!

We had a pre-booked table with wine. From the moment we arrived we were well looked after. Our seating was opposite the stage, but set back, so we got great views and were very comfy. The shows were a great laugh and the music was great too, we spent a lot of the night on the dance floor. We would... More

I came to the Birdcage on the Big Night Out, which I think was Divas of Pop. The acts were absolutely fantastic, super talented and a great laugh. However, after every dance routine, they would open up the stage for the audience to have a dance around, before kicking us off for the next act. This soon became a bit... More

Negatives were the smell' it hits you as soon as you walk in? Like damp dirty carpet. Floor very sticky and the toilets smelly. The... More

I have heard about this place but no one ever mentioned the price of drinks. I went to see the dreamboys for a works xmas party. The tickets where only £12 so I thought I would give it a go. Read the drinks menu and although it was over priced I thought a pitcher of cocktail should last a while... More

Very Very disappointed by this club! We queued for 10 mins, all security staff were friendly and pleasant - but when we arrived at the till we were informed by a young gentleman ( over 25 yr old though) that we were too old to enter and the night would not suit us!!! He said it was 18-25 night and... More
