I still need to go through that list - hopefully do that tonight. 

However, Andy at refresh last night it was suggested to me 
that we try the Bath Street Pony for any events that require 
AV (for talks etc.) It looks pretty good and is also free to 
book during the week.


Has anybody been? I've no idea what its like other than what 
is on the website.

I would suggest that at least to begin we follow the same model as Edinburgh (and soon Glasgow) Refresh whereby we only have talks once per quarter. So we could have a different venue for general meetups and talks.
