Just been to see Liam Gallagher , seating very roomy and comfortable , all staff very friendly , beer not too expensive , only downside the burgers where awful , over cooked and bland. Great sound system will definitely return to this venue

Couldn’t get much further from the stage but seats were very good. The show was excellent classical, country, musical, West End, Queen, Wham etc. Sound and lighting brilliant. 10/10. Will go again. L&J
