A tastier non alcoholic beer/lager selection and crisps! tea and coffee! I feel i could go there alone as a female and feel welcome, Brilliant, just what North Devon needs, a safe LGBTQI space. I love the sofas, so comfortable and the DJ warm up played great tunes. The staff were all very welcoming, thank you Steve and Paul.xx

We had the best night However felt let down by no cabaret Despite having it confirmed it was Cabernet night before we arrived 100% recommend the bar for a night out but the website and information about what exactly you’re booking would needs to be clearer to avoid disappointment on arrival

We had the best time at Masquerade from start to finish, my party of 14 were made to feel welcome and as soon as we saw inside the venue we were astounded! Best cocktails ever, brilliant entertainment and we all had so so so much fun. Words don't do it justice - thank you so much for making our Mum's night out a roaring success! We will certainly be back xxx

Business Response:
Hi there many many thanks for your feedback yes we totally agree with you- it was our opening weekend and we had all new staff who were finding their feet and did an amazing job we saw we needed more floor staff so weve altered the procedures for our cabaret nights to make it easier and quicker for everyone to both get served and have an even more fantastic evening with us much love Masquerade

Great bar/club. Fabulous atmosphere and excellent entertainment. Drinks a little expensive but entrance fee low so balances out. Don’t think there was food on offer so haven’t rated for that. Best entertainment venue in Barnstaple and maybe whole of Devon

First time here and we loved it. What a place. The service was really great, until it got busy and then the drinks took a while or were forgotten so we had to chase up but other than that it was fabulous. Gorgeous setting, great entertainment and felt very safe. We didn’t have food so couldn’t grade it but the cocktails were divine.

The evening was fantastic, staff were wonderful and the atmosphere was relaxed until we witnessed a manager be incredibly rude to a staff member in public. I found his whole approach to the young lady was rude, derogatory and totally degrading. I did speak to him afterwards saying the staff were amazing and deserved to be treated with more respect. I did not get his name but he was a tall, slim man, I'd guess in his late 50s/early 60s. Thankfully it didn't completely ruin the night but I wouldn't want him dealing with me when I next attend.

Noone answered the phone when we rang to say we would be a little bit late. Apart from that, we enjoyed the evening. Barnstaple deserves to have an alternative venue like this - long may it continue!
Business Response:
thanks for your review- the phone wasnt answered as we try to give the customers within our 100% attention and we do find alot of the calls are for people wanting to make reservations when we are trying to check guests into Masquerade. We will look towards a better system so that calls are met when made.

It is such an awesome space and environment. My only disappointment are the djs, they don't seem to play to the crowd, each time I've been it's clear what is getting people onto the dance floor and what isn't but most of the time there are very few people up and dancing. Everything else is absolutely awesome though
