I used to love Monday nights there for the opens. Ray Andrews and Windy Glade springs to mind. Won every Monday for about a year, or so it seemed.

Strange setting within an old prison IIRC but proper friendly locals and a cracking café.

Doug Kenney was my trainer but we moved to Nottingham when he did.
