First visit here to see the amazing 'Evening with Groucho' show. I really liked this venue. It had an old-school informality about it that was really charming. The venue can generate a comfortable, friendly and intimate atmosphere. If there's something you want to see coming here - go for it, you won't be disappointed

Great place to see a live band. More of an intimate-like set-up, which worked really well. Acoustics was good also. The only 'down side' was the bar prices, which were a little steep. Nonetheless, the bar staff were very good, professional and prompt. Would visit again

I have lived in the Bath area for several years but my visit to see Peter Howarth recently was my first to this wonderful venue. As a Hollies fan I wanted to see how Peter performed supported only by Michael Armstrong (a brilliant performer in his own right). As Linda S says it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening enhanced by...

We went to the Chapel Arts Centre on Saturday night for a Peter Howarth concert. He likes small but personal venues, we have seen him at the Tithe Barn in Bishops Cleeve which I think held about 150-200 but this only held about 100 people - but it worked. Rather than rows of seats we were arranged around tables of... More

Bang in the centre of Bath, this is a great venues for small gigs. The sound is great, there is a good cafe downstairs and the bar (although small) serves local Bath Ales (amongst everything else). First time visit tonight but will be looking out for more gigs in their extensive upcoming programme.

Visited here twice to watch up and coming musical talent. A small cosy venue which was great. We loved the way it was set out with small round tables, candles etc It all added to the amazing music heard on both occasions. My only criticism would be that there is only a small bar available at the back of the... More

We went here for lunch twice in 2 days when we were in Bath. I'm a veggie so really appreciated all the veggie food. I had a Mexican flat bread on the first visit and a Minerva salad on the 2nd visit. Both were amazingly tasty and very filling. The prices are quite high but you do get quite big... More

Been to a couple of concerts here. A great medium-size performance space in the centre of Bath. Good example of a building being well re-purposed. Great cafe too.
