Saw Shame and GURR last night, the sound was great as was the gig. They seem to have upgraded the stage as well the lighting rig. All adds up to a really good venue.

Saw Police Dog Hogan here with friends. Great night with a lot of buzz. Bit of a wait at the bar but once the music started that was secondary.

Visited with a group of friends to see some local bands on Friday . Small venue with friendly staff and reasonable prices . Shame about the plastic glasses some of which had seen better days

The music room is out the back of the bar. It is very dark and claustrophobic, but a friendly atmosphere. The fron bar is very pleasant and quirky.

Hi Jerry, Thanks for your question. All gigs are standing unless otherwise stated. There are a few bar stalls at the back of the room but are very limited. Any other questions do not hesitate to ask. Thanks Paul
