lovely location!

Stopped to buy tickets for cinema and found a lovely place by the water for a tea. .. worth a visit for the surroundings. Nice and quiet after bustle of pannier market.

The Wharf is a great place for music. We go to at least 15-20 music concerts every year. The sound is great, staff friendly and they cater for every taste. Good value for a excellent nights entertainment.

Fantastic, good music, good food and a great gig, with friendly and helpful staff, though it's only a little venue it has a feel good vibe to it, going here again very soon

The Venue is lovely, been to see many tributes at the venue...so nothing wrong there...just the band ELO again...they were truly terrible...Bad vocals, out of tune and the band resembled something I'd see/hear locally in one of the amateur pubs...no that's rude to the bands who work hard on that circuit. Terrible band, don't bother wasting your money as me... More

Came here to see a live gig. On my visit the sound quality down at the front was poor, quite muffled is the best way I can describe it. Nice enough place otherwise

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

Love going to the cinema here and have enjoyed various tribute acts. Went for lunch before afternoon film recently and pleasantly surprised how good it was, tea and bun very good.

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
