Our great friend and incredibly talented keyboard player with one of our most favourite bands, Baked A La Ska, is taking up residency on our intimate bar stage for a string of live shows with some very special guest musicians.

John has played with everyone from The Cinematic Orchestra (a long time band member during TCO’s peak years in the early nineties), alongside the Zappa legend Ike Willis in The Muffin Men and performed or recorded with Corinne Bailey Rae, Tom Jones, Lily Allen, James Yorkston, John Squire (Stone Roses) and Honeyfeet amngst many others.

Mainly though, John is a pianist beyond compere and a master and exponent of an incredibly diverse range of music, from jazz` to soul and reggae; and during these Sunday sessions he will be taking our beautiful Steinway Grand out for a spin on a journey throughout his diverse repertoire and featuring some very special guests.

Tickets are just £10 and include a £5 voucher that can be redeemed against pizza, cocktails and wine from our bar.

The bar will be open from midday for pizzas and drinks, and John will be getting on stage at 1.30pm.

If you are planning on visiting us for food we recommend arriving early as food service can be extremely busy and tables get snapped up fast!

Special Guests:
29/01 – Billy Buckley (guitar)
26/02 – Rachel Gladwin (harp)
30/04 – John Diver (guitar)
