I've been going to see bands at this venue for over 10 years now and have taken many friends along with me who had not previously been there, it's a great place, full of character, ideal for seeing live bands but also there's an art centre and little café attached as well. Run on a very friendly basis with local... More

We saw Dire Streets.....booking the seats was easy, lovely helpful receptionist. The venue itself is compact but great lighting and sound system. Loos were clean and tidy, bar prices not too bad and BBQ delicious. We keep an eye out to see what other bands will be playing

There is a lot about The Wharf that is good; the venue, the location, the coffee shop. But it could be so much better . . . A diet of tribute bands may be what brings in the audiences, but it does little to promote the wealth of emerging talent in the region and to encourage touring bands to play... More

We went here for lunch and sat ouside by the canal bliss, good menu lots of choices and not expensive. Kids will love watching the ducks swim up and down the canal The Wharf is not just for music, cinema and concerts, it displays local artists works that are for sale

The wharf is a fabulous small and intimate music venue, making a trip to Tavistock in the evening a must. The Wharf does mainly feature tribute acts, some of them really excellent, however there is always a reasonable selection of bands throughout the year for the purists. Joe Bonamassa, Curved Air, Focus, Wishbone Ash and Mostly Autumn being some of... More
