The venue is the back room of a pub. It's fairly large, and has a good sized stage. The building used to be a swimming pool, hence the name. Most of the bands that play here are local, and there are weekly 'turn up and play' jam sessions. There is ample seating and the stage is visible throughout the room. However, the seats and tables are right next to the stage so hardly anyone stands and there is never dancing when bands are on.
