Firstly, the above title is not directed at the café staff-they are friendly and very accommodating to children. However the receptionist, and some of the other customers seem to have forgotten that they were ever children themselves. I will not be returning much to the relief of the miserable group of people who felt the need to complain about two... More

Visited the wharf on many occasions for live bands and special events. Always very well organised and a lovely location with plenty of parking. Great venue. Give it a go something for everyone.

Have been here several times to see films and tribute bands with both family and friends. It is a small theatre but the atmosphere is great, the staff friendly and in the summer the BBQ's add to the evening. There are also talks given on set dates in the afternoons on a variety of subjects. You have to become a... More

When visiting friends in Tavistok, they booked tickets for a night of music by The Kinks - our first visit to The Wharf - a great place to enjoy live music, as fairly small,venue, so really got to enjoy the band up close. Would definitely recommend.

Small bar outside function hall, which had some steep seating but was mostly for a standing audience (which I hadn't realised before the gig). Plenty of parking adjacent to this well-priced concert venue.

Went to see The South (formally the Beautiful South). Not sure of the exact date - but the venue was really great. Ample parking and centrally located to walk into the town for a meal and drink.

A small, intimate theatre but what a surprise! BBQ on the go all evening - seating area for around 120 and standing for perhaps another 100 plus - apparently Desperado are regular visitors to the Wharf and the place was full. Not disappointed, after a few back numbers which I had not heard before we got the big hits. Very... More

Good location for live music. Small and intimate. mostly standing with banked seats to the rear but beware if you are in the first two rows you wont see the stage due to the people on the floor standing. Bar was adequate and staff were friendly. Entry price was reasonable and the place looked like it has been maintained well.... More
