Room Description

Detached from the main rooms of the `pub` that are on the lower floors is a positive. Next to the main road, no double glazing. The room above a pub is a common venue used by the UK `free improv` scene. This is an acceptable version of this venue type. P Morton writes.

No piano, It is a function room in a pub, you bring your own devices (BYOD)

Be aware : It is suggested you bring extension cables or check with the promoter before the day of the event.

Quiz Night

Check out the diary Be aware this venue has a `quiz night` [ currently on a Thursday ] the amplified voice of the quiz master may bleed into the upstairs function room during moments of low volume. ==

This room has been used by, Blank Canvas, Ged Barry and others [ citation required ] Free to use, but if you charge on the door they will want a `cut` of the box office. This is a very reasonable condition of use, and this process is very amicable.
