This is a good venue. Especially for well known comedians trying out new material. Need to find out and book early. Bar is reasonable albeit a little overpriced.

My son had 30 minutes on the excellent Spitfire simulator. He absolutely loved it, and the guidance from the instructor was spot on. Highly recommend this little place for anyone interested in aviation, particularly WW2 and the ATA.
