First night in here? Well, you’ll get used to us. We’re a lively pub. Not going to ask you what you’re doing here, never do, that’s one of our rules”.

It’s about people and the strength of the human spirit – stronger than anything on offer behind the bar.

“A brilliantly, surrealistically and comically poetic piece” – The Sunday Times

“this extraordinary gifted and original voice…populates the space with broad humour, dry wit and often shudderingly moving poetry.’ – Time Out
