I went along to support my friend Fred whilst he playing in the open jam night. We watched a few different artists and had a good time.

Enjoyed this very generous portion of nachos at the club. And reasonably priced too. Along with a good selection of cask beers this is a great location for a night out. Lots of good events on too.
