UNFORTUNATELY, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY REGARDING CORONAVIRUS AND THE FACT THAT THE ARTISTS AND MANY OF OUR GUESTS WOULD BE TRAVELLING, THIS MONTH’S JAZZ EVENING HAS BEEN CANCELLED. WE STILL PLAN TO OPEN THE CAFE EVERY DAY UNLESS WE ARE ADVISED NOT TO.

PLEASE ACCEPT OUR APOLOGIES FOR THIS INCONVENIENCE.

AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED LOYALTY.

LIANE CARROLL

For the first of two visits in 2020 we welcome back the irrepressible phenomenon that is Liane Carroll. Her ability to inhabit the spirit of every song she sings ensure that every Liane Carroll performance is an event.

FRIDAY 29th MAY 2020

Ian Shaw is rightly hailed as one of the world’s leading male jazz vocalists. His intimate, conversational delivery and his self-deprecating humour make him a natural fit for small venues such as the Jazz Cafe.

Sunday Lunchtime Sessions

UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE MADE THE DECISION TO POSTPONE OUR SUNDAY JAZZ UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

PLEASE ACCEPT OUR APOLOGIES FOR THIS. THE ANDY URQUHART QUARTET WILL RETURN AT THE EARLIEST OPPORTUNITY.

Every Sunday between 1pm and 4pm we present the finest live jazz in the South courtesy of The Andy Urquhart Quartet with a varying line-up and special guests playing standards and modern jazz classics – the perfect accompaniment to your Sunday roast.

It is not necessary to book a table as we prefer to seat and serve customers as they arrive.

Private Functions

The Jazz Café can cater for parties and events of all types from 20 to 150 guests including private dinners, weddings, birthday parties, barbecues and corporate events.

We offer set party menus or we can liaise with you on your preferred menu options.

Bookings are available for evenings only on the weekend and weekdays throughout the year.
