The Arts centre is our local cinema. It shows a great mix of mainstream Hollywood movies and the best of international movies. It also screens Opera and Live drama from Opera houses and the National Theatre. The team that work there do a really great job. The audience is pretty grey - haired, attracting many who would never I suspect... More

Being a local I often enjoy attending events at The Stamford Arts Centre, and takemuch pleasure in doing so. The staff is fantastic overall and they have a great selection. I sincerely commend their efforts in bringing such good programmes to the residents of Stamford. That said, That is why it I feel rather bad for writing this review. Recently... More

This place is stuck in a curious time warp - a lovely Georgian building housing a mean, 70s utilitarian, council "community centre". The whole interior needs to be re-furbished for this millennium, especially the chronically cramped seats in the theatre - despite these being only 22 years old. However, one can almost forgive the terminally dreary atmosphere on account of... More

Varied and imaginative programme of events and classes; both modern and off-beat films; great rooms for hire. Pleasant enough daytime cafe; the Cellar bar would be an acquired taste.

Offers good selection of films and live shows/musicians in a convenient small theatre. Nice cafe and sweet shop, good coffee and cakes and free newspapers to read. Also hosts the tourist information and an art gallery so all in all a great hive of activity in this small market town. Stamford would be poorer without it.

If your hungry and don't want to spend a fortune nor expect anything special then this is ok. After all it's just a cafe that doesn't do anything special just common grub.

Great value, friendly service I love the Bacon and Mushroom roll. The cheese on toast (with Marmite if you ask nicely) is popular with my better half.....Nice coffee too and you get to read the papers
