We went to the Wharf today to see "A street cat named Bob". Great film , great venue. All the latest films seem to arrive soon after release. Also many great tribute bands play here..Hardly a week goes by without something for everyone at the Wharf.

Good location for live music. Small and intimate. mostly standing with banked seats to the rear but beware if you are in the first two rows you wont see the stage due to the people on the floor standing. Bar was adequate and staff were friendly. Entry price was reasonable and the place looked like it has been maintained well.... More

Great sound at the Wharf. We had seats which meant we had a great view. One of our favourite small venues in a pretty town with parking right outside.

Went to hear a tribute band but the music was so loud we had to come out and sit in the bar. Drinks were very expensive.

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.
