Very local clientele - made us feel very unwelcome. Drinks are expensive and you are expected to keep putting money on the tray that keeps coming round to pay for the performers. This would be acceptable if the performers were any good !! Avoid.

It's a shame that what let's this place down is the customer service. The sheer aggression from staff if you don't donate or buy a raffle ticket is unacceptable (I did donate the first time the tray was passed, but didn't want to buy a...More

In short, they pretend to be a free, welcoming music venue but in reality they put themselves way above their customers. If you don't donate you can expect to get harassed. As it was mothers day, we as a family took my mother out to...More
