Venue Hire: Holds up to about 150 people (more at a squeeze), can do food, no hire charge. Sky and Setanta shown on two plasma screens via two Sky boxes. [Juliette]? was told in 2007 that the minimum spend for exclusive hire on a Saturday night would be around £1000-1500 (can't remember exactly), and that the music would be restricted to the songs on their music system; an anonymous commenter in July 2008 told us that the average minumum spend for exclusive hire would be around £750 depending on the date, and that the music system currently has about two thousand songs.
[Juliette]?'s verdict: Friendly manager. Venue modern and light, but nothing special.
