What a buzzing place! packed with music lovers, a good sign for a great night! we came to watch Mrs Wilson band last Friday and they were absolutely fantastic, the atmosphere was electric with people dancing everywhere! we booked a table (I fully recommend) so you can rest and enjoy few drinks brought by our own smiling waiter! a must!

Good place for a night out with nice choice of drinks and live music every day. Better come earlier as tables get occupied fast closer to the show time.

Went there with a few friends a couple of weeks ago. Lovely vibe to the place - busy due to the decent and fuuuunky music, but still got served incredibly quickly in spite of this, and with cheer! Best part of it all - a free pizza when you buy two pints (double decent!) Would recommend 9.4/10

As a group of 10 coming at 7 to eat and stay the night we expected accommodating service, however we were met with ruder servers who didn't know the menus and berated us with bills, only to dissapear and ignore us when we tried to pay. Can't fault the band though, they were amazing despite being late to the stage!

£5 each to get in and well worth it. Great atmosphere and it's not hard to get a good view of the stage. The evening we were there they had an excellent New Orleans style jazz band, great fun!

Really cool place. Every night there is another live artist, you can check this on the website in advance. Good idea to make a reservation (for a table in the front for example), but I went there last Friday and standing at the bar wasn't that bad. Paid 5 pounds at the door and the beers were pretty cheap. Really... More

Live music was okay. Not my kind of jazz... the place looks a bit dingy. Drinks are good ! Pizza is no good ! Full of oil , small and soggy. Ply has better pizzas round the corner !

Thank you for your review of the club. We have different Jazz bands playing at the club every week so maybe this band wasn't the one for you? We really are just a tiny back street Jazz club but our regular guests love how the room looks. Good to hear you enjoyed your drinks. Not sure what pizza you had... More

I was really looking forward to seeing a live jazz act but this venue disappointed. To start with the venue is small and an odd shape for everyone to view the act. It also didn't help there was a leak in the ceiling on a very rainy night , which closed a large part of the room off with chairs.... More

Thank you for writing a review of the club. Unfortunately the night you visited there had been some very heavy rain, which had found it's way through the building into the club. We have talked to the landlord's agents on several occasions about this problem and hopefully they have now done something about the leaking roof above the club. The... More

Free pizza. Enough said. I recently went here with a friend for the happy hour drinks. What is so special about happy hour here is that when you buy 2 alcoholic drinks you get a full size pizza absolutely free! The pizzas are a decent size but if you are looking to have the pizza as your evening meal I... More
