Absolutely fantastic night, we sat in the front and enjoyed every minute of it! The power cuts just made the night even more hilarious! Well done to the band for carrying on. Hope you fixed your guitar ;)

Simple decor, does get very hot inside, so dress down. Great music and atmosphere. Drinks reasonable, best to get here early if you want seats, band played till 0100 and by then it was very busy. Enjoyable night.
