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.

Really great venue for gigs. Absolutely beautiful! Sound was fab and place was quirky which is always great. Cloak room quite cheap. Drinks a little pricey but really enjoyed the place and music was great in the bar after the gig had finished.
