The centre is a good place to visit if you're in Berwick; the variety of shows and films looks interesting and you might be lucky like we were and get a cut-price ticket for that night's show (Richard Herring, very funny). The Kitchen at Maltings, a small restaurant serving light meals, serves good food with friendly service, and the surroundings are eclectic and attractive, with a large picture window looking over the town and old movie and theatre posters on the walls.

Went to an excellent live relay from the NT last night (‘Hansard’), brilliant to be able to see these shows here. So let’s get the rest of the Maltings services joined-up:

- the cafe restaurant should be open before a show (this was a Thursday);
- if the bar had been open afterwards it would have done good business;
- it’s winter, everyone had a coat: why no cloakroom?

Sadly disappointed with the food choices and prices in the overrated cinema Cafeteria. I do enjoy a glass of vino before a movie. However I find that £15.70 for bland glass of house white and a glass of Merlot vastly overpriced. Don't begrudge anybody making an honest profit, but the prices for a rural cinema are excessive to say rhe least. We did enjoy the cinema movie though, 'Belfast'.

Went to see Alasdair Roberts here last weekend. The gig was in a cosy studio space so can't comment on the main auditorium, but we loved what we saw. Staff were friendly and helpful. The bar is very quirky and also reasonably priced for a theatre. Would definitely visit again.

I was away having some "me" time and wanted an evening's entertainment suitable for one in a town I had only just arrived in that very afternoon for the first time ever! So I checked out what was on at the Maltings Theatre and discovered a musical offering, "Fiddlers Bid". I bought my ticket, went off and dined locally. Icame back to the bar for a pre show drink of a small bottle of red wine which was well priced and very acceptable. The staff were very friendly in the theatre as were the other theatre goers whom I chatted with and gleaned some local knowledge about places to visit during my stay. The theatre is small, comfortable, well looked after, quaint and seemingly very well run.I was only disappointed that there wasn't anything on the next evening for me to go and see.

Cinema, Mama Mia. To be honest I wasn't sure this film experience would be worth seeing in The Malting's, however everyone settled mesmerized to watch so all good. Sound quality was spot on. Packed venue. Been to see live acts here and always been Fab, so gave a film a go and pleased I did. Saved travelling further afield. There's a bar for refreshments before, and during intervals. The decor was by an artist I know well an extremely talented friend of mine. You will be admiring this as you sip your wines. Only downside to the visit for me was the prices of sweets, come on Malting's we are in the town centre. If I'd know I would of brought my own. A large pack revels, small pack of skittles and small Trebor mints £4.60 is far too much. As a northerner would say 'how much?' There is a profit and a take the **** apart from this well worth a visit.

We didn't feel up to a lot of exploring of Berwick (we've been before, many times) but did want to see a film we'd missed elsewhere - so headed to the Maltings...

Helpful, friendly staff - the young lady at the ticket desk gave us lots of good advice about where to park, and the leniency (or otherwise) of the wardens - and the ticket-checkers were very welcoming

The theatre/cinema is a nice intimate venue, you are close to the stage/screen, and I reckon you'd need to have a quite tall person in front of you before your view was blocked

A nice way/place to spend an afternoon

This was our first visit to the Maltings theatre on Saturday 28th Jan to see 10cclo, the venue is a small friendly place with easy access and generally good parking on the adjacent large car park. Staff are very friendly and eager to help, the bars can get quite busy so a tip is to purchase your interval drinks in advance.
We booked to see 10cclo only a few days before the performance, as we had never come across this band before, they play a combination of ELO and 10cc hits, great tunes just kept coming.
Fantastic nights entertainment, and we will definitely be returning here again in the near future.
