between 12 and 2pm as it's lunchtime and we're likely to be too busy

Please bear in mind that we have a LOT of demos, albums and emails sent
to us and it takes us a while to get through them. Please also note
that we are a small restaurant with a musical interest in the singer-songwriter/americana/alt.country/etc.

sure whether to come and see a show in The Chattery? You can read a
selection of nice things people have said about us here.
brief history of live music at The Chattery can be found here. Including
some of the gigs you might've missed!
