The music is alrighty every now and again. The drink prices are okay. I'ts only 2 quid to get in. Other than that, the place sucks.

Not a lot has changed here in about a year. But credit where due, it is quite a nice little dinge hole. A few familiar faces, and the usual familiar tracks. Some goth, night ended with 'Temple of Love', so i was suprised. Give it a go if you have a free thurs eve. cheap drinks. x

Is now running "Rock of Ages" which is a journey through (shockingly) rock throughout the ages. Decent enough though tends to have played far too many Black Sabbath tracks for my liking in the past. Nevertheless - cheap and cheerful, though the numbers seem to waiver from half empty to totally empty....

The mandrake was a fine venue but rather unfortunately has not been used for a number of years for anything alternative, another one to remove from list until this changes?
