Great little theatre, good bar but beware the Cornish Rattler - a pretty strong cider. Nice views over the stream. Went back the next day for a cuppa.

We were here yesterday evening and had a great time. A great place to see a show with that intimate atmosphere that you don't get with other theaters. My only criticisms is that if you haven't Been there before then there doesn't seem to be many staff members around to show you where you need to be at the right... More

This is a real cinema/theatre on a parochial scale. Very cute, a bit rough and ready, nice bar and café, friendly staff but the seats are a bit rough and ready. Take a cushion with you.

This is a review of the venue, not of the event we attended (which was John Lee's Barclay James Harvest, and very good nostaligia it was too). The Wharf, Tavistock has a continuing gig list mostly of tribute bands. However, they also get visits bt the more minor come-backsers - we saw Focus there last year. It is a fairly... More

It's lovely little theatre / arts centre tucked away between the Tavy and the main streets of the town. We'd come specially from the Midlands for the weekend to see a special performance of Calendar Girls and were really impressed with the production by the Tavonian Players. However it was a sell-out night and there is a lack of circulation... More

It's brilliant that we can get bands like this in Tavistock. Great work guys . brilliant sound system. Great lighting , get more bands like this and this could easily be the best music venue in the south west

This seemed to be an area of about 200 square feet, which used to be a wharf once, in Medieval Times. Unimpressive

What a fantastic evening at The Wharf, Tavistock, last night. Anthony Edwards did a stunning performance, vocals and desire to thrill the audience. Nothing was too much trouble to entertain us. One of the best evenings ever at The Wharf.

First time at this venue last night , watched HI ON MAIDEN run riot , the venue its self is perfect for this type of gig, one of the best sound systems i have heard , crystal clear vocals. Bar stocks all the usual suspects at competitive prices , staff were friendly (especially those behind the bar) cant wait to... More
