Not a bad place for a coffee, cheaper than the chains and always helps supporting local. So even if you're not seeing anything there, it's a nice place to take your laptop and notebook for a bit of work

Saw Bouncers years ago and it was as funny this time as it was then. The actors were amazing, transitioning from one character to another seamlessly. Another fantastic John Godber production and well worth seeing.
