    Booked a table for 8.45 as the web site said the singer started at 9.00pm. He was already performing when we arrived so sadly we missed some of the performance. Please check your website is accurate.

    We travelled to a comedy night (Barnstormers) at this venue recently and decided to eat there too. The Dry Spy building and grounds are wonderful, the whole place has been lovingly refurbished to a very high standard, inside and out. It was a sunny day so we sat on the terrace, above where we sat is another level of seating, very well laid out and then there is an area with a couple of wooden benches that has gone wild and was perfect for quiet relaxation. The inside has a couple of levels and the comedy was delivered (ground floor)cabaret style with plenty of room to enter and exit and good sound quality. The small plates menu provided us with more than enough to eat and was excellent. We got advice from our waitress (Amber I think) and every member of staff we encountered was smiley, efficient and happy in their work. All round this place is lovely. We intend to travel again for a Barnstomers comedy night, we got 3 funny comedians and an MC, really good night. Thank you to Amber & all the staff

    Great atmosphere and service. Only thing I would say is they are more focused on drinks than food. Brunch was really tasty but portion size was small. If we had of been drinking would have had to order more food!

    Great experience. Service was efficient and friendly. Atmosphere was good. Cocktails and food yummy. Would be great in the summer as there is a lot of outdoor seating. Only thing was that the music could be a tad softer.

    Lovely atmosphere, friendly welcome. Well mixed cocktails. Food well presented and cooked but totally overpriced. 'small plates' means side dish size for a main course price.

    Delicious food. Loved the sort of tapas ides that was going on. Could have done with a bigger plate than a side plate to eat off as we were sharing the dishes. Pudding super - especially the Malt Disney. No-jito very refreshing.
