Never mind the negative reviews. If you want a top talented comedian. Then look no further. This man is funny with a capital F. Yes the decor is 1970s but so what I loved the 70s. Let your hair down and have a laugh. 😂😂😂😂

Loads of shopping for all tastes. Nice peaceful seating to chill and watch the harbour while drinking Costa. Loads of parking and easy to find.
