Live Music For Everyone

We pride ourselves on bringing a wide variety of live music to suit everyone’s taste, everything from young local talent to big name acts, top tribute and covers bands, and even traditional jazz. We have live music most nights, but Friday nights we have one of our resident DJ’s “on the decks” for you to dance the night away. We also provide music on special occasions including some themed nights, e.g. for New Year’s Eve, and on Sundays and Bank Holidays, if the weather is nice, we will try to put the band in the garden so you can still enjoy the sunshine.

What they said ?

We have helped numerous people solve their "where to have" that special party! Sometimes we can organise a late license until 2am if the occasion is special enough!! In the present economic climate, a party at The Horns could be the answer – AND save you a lot of expense as we don’t charge any hire fees!
  • "The Horns was a perfect place for a birthday bash, we pre-booked a week in advance and had an area reserved for us. There were a few tables so we could sit and chat if we wanted as well as room to dance to the live music too! The company was good and the entertainment was fantastic, it was a great night all round."

    30th Birthday Party
  • "Held my 50th birthday party at the Horns and it was fantastic - great venue for a party with dancing, a great band the staff laid on a great buffet which was very reasonably priced and the quality and quantity, for 100 guests, was excellent. The area was informally segregated so only my guests got to the eats. Had I hired a venue and band and laid on food, it would have cost me about 5 times as much and I would have had to get the venue ready, bought and brought the food and cleared up afterwards. Also, how many venues stay open beyond 12.00 midnight? And there is plenty of (cheap) parking"

    50th Birthday Party
  • “Last Friday was a night to remember. Thank you so much for saving us the area…it was very much needed! I have attached a photo of half of our group. I’m not actually in it as I was taking it! Sorry I didn’t get to meet you (the manager) either… wanted to buy you a drink to say thanks! Neil really enjoyed his send off… I’m sure we’ll be back for a re-visit in the near future…thanks again”
