Of course, it's hard to review a theatre without thinking of the play. Nevertheless this by any standards is a comfortable and well run theatre. The theatre bar overlooks the sea and is housed in a delightful Victorian period building clinging on to the cliff side. There are other facilities within the building for live music and markets.

Went to cafe for a drink and bite to eat. The gentleman serving in the cafe was rude, disrespectful and very unpleasant to deal with. Made us feel as though we shouldn't be there. Very unprofessional for a manager and will not be returning again.

I went on a weekday January afternoon and had coffee. The staff were very welcoming and enthusiastic even though there was were only 2 people in at the time. This place is all worth supporting!

Visited with family as it looked like a good place to look out on the sea. Despite being a large space the place was nearly empty with only one other table occupied. No staff were visible to start with but when someone appeared they seemed disappointed to see us and said "there's not more of you are there!?". The food... More

My husband and I have been frequent visitors to the Pavilion over many years. The cafe has panoramic views of the sea and beach, there's always something interesting to watch. They serve a good cup of tea, good chips and good quiche. Generally the food is bog standard cafeteria stuff, but its reasonably priced, reasonably clean, and the staff are... More

the door staff employed are a real throwback to the bad old days, confrontational in attitude and obstructive, I thought venues like this had seen the light years ago that empowering people like this can detract from the night to the point that they will never return, I certainly wont

The pavilion hosts the Bram Stoker Film Festival the weekend before Halloween. The variety of films on offer (in the main cinema and mini cinema) was superb. We were also treated to an art gallery downstairs and a main hall for the play, Vampire Ball and 1880s night. The food and drink was good (although they ran out of Earl... More

Well organised event. Clean & food served was good. Staff were friendly but sometimes a bit slow at the cafe. Bar prices were a bit over priced & wine was expensive I thought.

My visits to what will always be known as "t'Spa" are based on how it is during Folk Week, the week before August Bank Holiday each year, when it is exceptionally full and well used from 10am to 1am or later the next morning every day. You may not get the same view of it at other times. The theatre... More
