The music policy had been changed for a very good reason, we were not earning any money, its been getting busier every single week and shows no signs of stopping. The music is friendly and creates a good atmosphere not like the teeny bopper dance in other places. Its not everyones cuppa and the only complaints are from people who we are not aiming to get in! Ive worked many venues so ive seen what works and what doesnt, everything just takes time. Staff are still great and great drinks!

i called in to this place on saturday night and i cudnt believ what music was actually being played i thought i was pissed and was in flares ( r.i.p flares ) music just isnt right for a weekend thats why flares closed down for god sake every one wants a good mixture of all types of music not just a certain type get it together olivers i mean porterfields
this town is not for just the over 40s who dont drink in town anymore its for the younger generation please re think your music policy even jaydees playes allsorts not that the place is any thing to go by lol just an observation of a bar that could be making a unwise choice based on wrong music

Have not been impressed with the music the last few times we have ventured in as it seems to have gone down hill with all the 70's stuff, we have left early the last two times aswell and wont be going back to make it three. Its just not our type of music, my mam would love it though.

what has happened to this place? went in this sat night to find a wedding disco. where has the dj gone? who wants to listen to party music from 1970 on a saturday night. that was 38 years ago and people who were out were 17 or 18 at the time so if you are 55 years old you will love it and they may mention when you reach 50.stuck in a time warp?
