Have visited here a few times now, mostly for the excellent live music events hosted here, or the equally excellent art exhibitions. A real jewel in Bridport, that is staffed by lovely, lovely folk, and is well run and well maintained. Don't hesitate to visit.

We enjoyed a three-course meal before the show and were then treated to 2 hours of Taiko drumming! Good venue, all reasonably priced and very friendly staff.
