Went to see a few bands and was delighted by this lovely old venue. The staff are very pleasant and the venue overall was very clean though they were having trouble with the gents.

“History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

After you tour The Wall go down to Guildhall and wait for Gerry to give you a free tour of the stain glass windows. His passion for the city and its future is electric ! You'll leave with an open mind.

“Now it's a 5 star - £10 revamp ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

Don't miss this - the government has just refurbished the entire - at a cost of £10 - what a job.
Ask about a quick tour - it's amazing - gives a real historical insight - thanks to Gerry for the tour - he gives a whistle stop history lesson - with passion and humour

“Beauty and history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is the most beautiful building! It is so both inside and out. History is told through the magnificent stained glass windows which are a must see. The pipe organ is amazing, and the reception is warm, friendly and humorous. Guided tours are a must and the exhibition is fascinating.
