Wow. What a night! Visited the haunt with a few friends from Baron's court and had a wonderful time. It was 80s night, which was...GOLD! Best thing, however, was the delightfully beautiful crowd - young and energetic, full of vim and vigour. Oh I danced the night away and rediscovered my youth. Highly recommend the haunt. It's great.

Came here to see one of my favourite bands F***** Up here a few weeks ago. It is a intimate and sweaty venue which suited me down to the ground. A crazy gig. As for the staff, I agree with most of the comments below, they really try and be bullish. Other than that an okay venue.

We have been to lots of gigs here and never had a good experience, but keep going back to see specific bands. Last night was the worst experience by far. Our tickets didn't arrive to I contacted the venue numerous times using the online enquiry form, direct email and Facebook, no response at all. I couldn't find a phone number... More

Yes my little pumpkins, good venue this, been to a lot of gigs here over the years. Nice and small, so perfect for alternative bands. Good sound, cheap drinks, what more could an alcoholic music lover want?

We've been here plenty of times over the last 5 years, but we keep coming back! Saturday nights they have an 80s DJ. Now there are 80s nights with light up dance floors and stag dos wearing dresses, then there's The Haunt's tasteful take on the era. No fancy dress, no hen or stag dos, and not a cheesy dance...

Wow, just wow. What can I say about the haunt.. Went on a Monday night and the £2.50 doubles deal was absolutely out of this world! Music was a good blend of indie music and bangers a great venue to choose if you are looking for a good time with your friends! will definitely be returning next week and weeks... More

I have to say reading other comments I personally found the staff to be fine. However I would totally agree the price of drinks... they are ridiculously over priced for such a run down venue. £4.80 for a can of Red Stripe! A joke. I enjoyed the gig however the layout of this small venue is really poor. A total... More

I'd rather rate this venue in the minus numbers and here's why - The staff here are so rude and unfriendly and seem completely incompetent , barely even acknowledging you as they take your money for the overpriced drink . Let's talk about the drinks . £4:40 for a warm can of red stripe , that's way above the accepted... More
