    The food is good plus plenty of baby classes during the day - the comedy club for parents is great fun.

    Comedy nights are brilliant here. A great opportunity to see some of the top comedians, along with up and comers in a small quirky venue!

    Nice staff. Disgusting toilets - floor 1cm deep in water with floating toilet paper. Both toilets affected. Let's be honest - the staff preparing food probably use them.

    Great for a beer in the sun after work even if it is on a busy road. Best sun trap there is around between 5-7.

    They appear to have a parent and kids rave. Glow sticks, the lot... In a Sunday afternoon.

    Head there on a Saturday for excellent comedy. If you don't pre-book tickets, make sure you get there early (7pm) to get tickets on the door.
