I do know the Wharf need to make money, but this place is a rip off, was very over priced, food could be better, some staff were just plain daft in the head.

Small atmospheric and friendly venue. Easy parking and always brilliant bands. Well worth a visit for tribute bands.

The Wharf is a great local location to watch pictures, plays and bands. It has a nice little bar and offers a good variety of entertainment throughout the year. I would recommend a visit to this place.

Lovely evening. Seats a little uncomfortable, no where to stretch legs out. However, it's great to be able to see the latest films near home.

Nice and clean, but we felt like we were imposing. The department we wanted was for the burial records and that doesn't open until noon..so don't got before then.

Went here to see the Stannary Brass Band and the Kingsmen barbershop choir in April. Lovely venue, and nice to be able to have a glass of wine in the interval. The music was very good. This is a great local venue for music of all types, films and tribute bands. Book ahead.
