The Empire Music Hall reviews

By Paul A.

When here for the live dirty sanchez show. Looked unreal on MTV, have to say I was very disappointed. Show lasted 10 minutes, the whole bar was kicking off throwing pints all over the show and security didn't try to intervene. The acoustics were also pretty poor with the band on stage before hand, you couldn't hear the vocals at all. Pints of Coors Lights were good though..

Have just got to write and let you know we all went to the empire to watch the mighty bon cove band and because we have been many times you got to get there early so we got there about 6.00 the show did not start till around 9.30 so we had to get some grub so we ask for menus and where told they were on the table by are waitress and new friend elaine she pointed out that all food is cooked fresh which is good to know she then pointed out the offers like burger and pint or pizza but we had a long night ahead so we need a feed I ask our friend what she have and right away she said thai fish cakes with dipping sauce follow that with the steak sandwich and wedges so I went for that some of the boys had dixie chicken,rebe and pepper sauce. The fishcakes took about 10 mins and they were tasty little bits full of flavour,the sauce homemade not out of a bottle after I had finished my starter the rest of the food arrived look too good too eat you could tell the chef loves what he does but did taste good you better belief it one of our friends is a chef in Lyndon and he is hard to please you know the type well not a moan first time thats happen so ***** empire food brill band fantasies great day out ill be back

A bar joined to a live music venue, The Empire pulls in the punters.

The Venue
There was a bit of controversy when Wine Inns decided to convert this former chapel into a bar, but the hardcore religious were outnumbered by the hardcore drinkers. There are palm tree frond plants outside and, if you walk down some steps, inside it’s pretty spacious with terracotta and black tiling and very dark brown woods everywhere.

There’s a raised area on the right with booth seating and old pictures of sports teams, lifeboat crews and farming families on the dark pink walls. There are small Victorian style red lamps dotted around the place and the wooden chairs are upholstered with light red velvet material.

There’s also some rather cool blue and crimson gold embossed wallpaper. There’s a mirror behind the bar, which is at the end of the room on the left. There are comedy nights in the bar and live music almost every night of the week in the music hall upstairs.

The People
The Empire Music Hall is popular with bright young things and students, particularly on its comedy nights. And there’s a music-loving crowd too, who flock to the venue when there are gigs and performances on (generally every Thursday, Friday and Saturday). Tribute bands are particularly popular here: ZU2, UK Guns and Roses and Deft Leppard are just four of the acts that play here.

The Food and Drink
On tap you’ve got Guinness, Heineken, Harp Tennents and Bass. Bottled offerings include Corona, Coors, Cobra, Crown, Magners and Stella. Wines come courtesy of Alamos, Hardys and Caliterra and there are half a dozen each of red and white and they cost from £12 to £16 a bottle. You can also get them by the quarter bottle for £3.40. On the bar menu there are sarnies for around a fiver (a steak baguette is £6.95), burgers and a pie of the day (£5.95). They also do twelve different pizzas for £5.95 each.

The Last Word
Despite being demonised for selling the devil’s juice in the house of the Lord, The Empire has struck back.
