Been to the Winter Garden before for exhibitions and the Beer Festival for which it is well suited. However, it's getting used much more during the major refurbishment of the Congress Theatre. We saw a tribute concert here and without the raked seating the view is not great. Although there is a stage it is not conducive to shows. It's serves as a temporary venue until the Congress is up and running again.

Chairs are far too small, even for average sized guests. We left at half time because of this, would not use again for a show.

Good service and food but the big plus was the actual venue for a large scale charity night. Bit tired around the edges but I understand it is being updated soon...plenty of space and large bar area in main hall for big events.

Spacious venue for concerts with good stage visibility and a pleasing, easy to access auditorium. Seating is not permanent and a little uncomfortable but generally OK

Great evening, superb performance. The seats were not too comfortable however & bad luck if the person adjacent is a bit on the large size. Went to the bar for a drink in the interval, NO GUINNESS on St Patricks Day. They hadn't sold out, 'we don't have it' was the response I got. This venue is staging many concerts & musical performances, whilst the Congress Theatre is closed for refurb. They need to up their standards. Thankfully the performance overshadowed the mediocre facilities.
