Took my 2 young children to the Wharf to see Peppa Pig, this was the first time at the cinema for both of them and upon entering we felt about as welcome as the black death. The receptionist was miserable, verging on contemptuous towards us and complained about us being 20 minutes early. After the severe inconvenience of having to... More

Management response:

We would like to invite this lady to contact our office direct to discuss this on 01822 613928 or email angelacourt@tavistockwharf.com as we have no knowledge of this occurring at all, all our showings of Peppa Pig are in fact extremely busy and our box office staff most courteous. This review raises many questions. More

Have been to talks, concerts and film showings here. Delightful venue, real asset to the community. And the bar prices are very reasonable.

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

Management response:

This was an altercation between customers and bore no reflection on the venue staff who did their very best to intervene and pacify those involved, the receptionist acted impeccably but was faced with antagonism and our attempts to contact this lady to rectify the situation was met with a blank.

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.
