LIVE MUSIC

Every week here at The Big House Blues Bar we aim to provide you with a great selection of live bands, duos and solo artists, all of whom are handpicked for their quality and commitment to the blues genre. Whether you want to relax and enjoy local musical talent or be bowled over by musicians from the international stage we are sure your musical fix will be met. 

We have live music on our large stage with state of the art P.A. and lighting every fri night and sunday afternoons and the occasional Saturdays. 

FOOD

Here at the Big House Blues Bar we have our very own traditional cast iron smoker. All our meats are freshly sourced and slow-cooked for hours until tender and full of the flavours of traditionally smoked food

We only use wood chips made from the broken and charred white oak barrels of Tennessee whiskey distillers where a portion of bourbon remains in the wood after the barrels are emptied. 

Everything is cooked from fresh and the menu changes as often as is needed so as to maintain choice and quality. 

We also have a small vegetarian menu and the chef is more than pleased to speak to you should you have any requests or special requirements regarding food preferences and allergies etc.

We also have a very popular sunday lunch offer which is a fixed 3 course, all fresh, dinner for £8.95. runs every sunday from 2 until 6.30
