Opposite the Town Hall (by the bus stands) in what is a mixed use venue, labelled as a Tourist Information Centre (TIC), but it only has a small selection of leaflets only. No other tourist nic nacs like magnets, postcards etc. Toilets are downstairs opposite the small café on site. The small exhibition area to the front right hand side... More

We saw mister maker here, the venue was great and full, lovely little cafe to use during the break of a show and clean toilets, all seats seemed to have a good view and the staff were really friendly, very child friendly, the show was excellent.

Haven't visited the Forum cafe for a well. Not as keen on the cafe in the main area but do like to sit through the back in the bar area cafe. Decent food and selection. Basic choices though. Coffee cups are very tiny

The Forum puts on all sorts of entertainment from Ballet to Lectures for Engineers which are free to all. It has a nice cafe in the entrance area. It is well worth checking the programme as there is something for everyone events are always well organised

We spend a lot of time in the Forum attending shows, pantomime's etc or just calling there for coffee and cakes. The food is always good and service very good from a dedicated staff who are helpful and obliging. A nice clean eating area really enjoyed by the children and now our grand kids.

Called in to the cafe with a friend, have past this place probably thousands of times. Very clean and menu pretty extensive with reasonable prices. Service was good and staff really pleasant. Food was tasty and well presented, the place soon filled up so seemed very popular. Enjoyed my lunch and will be back.

Was rather sceptical about going to this pantomime but it was fantastic. Brilliant set, actors very funny and good mix of terrible jokes, ad libs etc. it had everything a traditional pantomime needs. Would recommend. The venue was ideal, good parking nearby, plenty of clean fresh toilets and attached cafe had wonderful food when it arrived.

My husband and I came to see Milton Jones last night. He was brilliant. Sadly the seating was awful, no leg room at all. During the show I was hoping it would go quick as the feeling in my legs were going. Kinda ruined my evening. I am 5ft 10" but those around me (who were shorter) were also commenting... More

Went here to see Andrew Newton the stage hypnotist. Venue is very good, clean comfortable, easy to get yo and the show was outstanding. Looking at the brochure there is a lot going on, I should make more use of this facility
