£20 for two pints and a double gin and soda in Swansea is unacceptable. Nice outdoor smoking area with working heaters is a plus. Take your money elsewhere where it won't be disrespected.

The Terrace upstairs is a nice setting with good cocktails however, way overpriced - especially in Swansea. £9-£10 for a double and a mixer is robbery. Pool hall on middle floor is decent.

Went on a friday night, no problems finding the venue and all staff were very pleasant. Drinks not too bad, better than expected for a music venue. Sound quality was ok for the kind of music playing.

Nice venue for a gig - security a little over zealous on crowd participation, but polite with it. Sound quality was great.

There have been famous bands playing here. Smallish venue, more intimate. Depends on who is playing. But there are seriously big acts playing from time to time.

We went to The Garage ONLY because Fairport Convention happened to be playing there. Fairport was brilliant, of course, but this is not a Fairport review. I wouldn't be going to The Garage for any reason other than to see Fairport. Members of Fairport said...More
