Recently went to watch a band here, arrived early and had booked a table, staff seemed unsure and slightly confusing re table, pizza was nice but rather tight on the toppings. Great venue but be prepared to get extremely hot in the malt store.

Went to see Peter Rabbit with 2 nephews. Nice and clean and friendly staff. Had a coffee in the restaurant while waiting for start of the film, prices for food were high but drinks were reasonable.
