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

I have seen lots of tribute bands, local bands and many top films at 'The Wharf'. They have a cafe and bar with seating outside next to the canal

My wife and I regularly visit Tavistock simply to enjoy a bus ride from Plymouth. We often go to The Wharf for a light lunch and find it quite enjoyable. It has a fairly small eating area and the menu satisfies our undemanding tastes at reasonable cost. The fact that we have gone there for a few years should speak... More

I ended up ordering a cheese and bacon flan salad, which took ages to be delivered, and when it arrived it was tiny. Place itself is pleasant enough, as are the staff

Very limited menu which includes salads, baked potatoes and sandwiches etc. Usually there are some good home made cakes. All of these are prepared on the spot but the quality is fairly average. On a sunny day the outside seating is very attractive with views of the Meadows and the Tavistock Canal and it is convenient for the Leisure Pool... More
