We came for the comedy , not the decor, but it really could do with a dust and a lick of paint. The comedy for a tenner was worth it though. Not a bad crowd for a Thursday night.

Basic food but well cooked and reasonable for town. Drinks also reasonable. Given a great table with a good view of the stage. Acts were funny. We’ve been many times and will continue to go. Our favourite comedy venue in Manchester by far
