Music & Events


Our Open Mic is a friendly and relaxed evening of varied music, every Monday. Bring your guitar, your keyboard, your harp… Play us a song or two, have a drink on us if you do.


Midweek live music normally begins around 9.30pm and features a host of local, national and international talents. Expect folk, jazz, funk, blues & beyond.


There’s an exciting DJ line-up each weekend, mainly sourced from record shops local to us. Expect classic to modern soul, disco to electronica, 80′s/AOR to hip-hop. All DJs play vinyl.
