We were on a day trip meeting up with friends from various areas of Scotland/England and wanted somewhere relaxed to eat and chat that was easy for everyone to find. We made the right choice. Despite a large conference taking place staff were only too happy to push tables together and cater for all ages from young baby to elderly.... More

Was here last week to see Gladys Knight. She was fantastic. The venue as always was great. Comfortable, great sound, helpful staff, much better than those bigger venues which pack you in like sardines and seat you in the Gods. Great venue and a great performance

Well my title says it all. There was nothing to complain about in this venue. Easy to find and once inside a very clean spacious and much larger venue then I had imagined. I had booked ticket for Idina Menzel concert but as I was unsure of how layout was in regards to height from stage I did end up... More

Great acoustics. All seats in main auditorium appear to have great views of the stage. Amazing night.

This venue is in the city centre and is easily accessible by car, train and bus. The venue itself has plenty of facilities including cloakrooms and bar areas. The seats are well spaced and comfortable and the acoustics are great.

Visited the Concert Hall Café/Bar while I was checking out if there were any concerts to my taste on my previous visit. Unfortunately there was nothing available during the time I was here. So I had a coffee and a beer while I was here and enjoyed the ambience of this lovely venue.

One of my favourites in the city, facilities are good, bars are well managed and there is not a bad seat in the house. They are comfortable too, you're not all squashed together like some places. Always look to see who is on here as it is our Venue of Choice.

the acoustics in the concert hall are quite something, if you can get a chance to go and see a show in the Concert hall i highly recommend it, the entrance in is magical to the eyes, I just love the steps, there is another entrance at the back of the Hall that is on one level and easily accessed

Really think this venue is top class! I was extremely apprehensive after buying tickets to see Bryan Ferry quite late on, we were only able to get the cheap £30 tickets which states on the ticket "limited leg room, restricted view" - but I can categorically state there was NOTHING wrong with these seats, especially for £30! What a beautiful... More

Our first time here to attend Don McLean concert and we were pleasantly surprised how large it is inside. Although we bought tickets at the last minute, our seats were still good with no obstructions and great acoustics. The fact this is smaller than other venues, i.e SEEC and Hydro it is so much more intimate. Lots of staff at... More
