An amazing venue that could be so much more. Seems very underused both in the main hall and the cellar bar. Nice staff and fairly comfy seats as well. Loads of history in the place too.

What a lovely old place, but typical of slack council management, they need to fulfill their responsibilities and maintain the fabric properly. The volunteer staff could not be faulted and helped us have a lovely evening. Beware there's only provision for one wheelchair.

Only used the café. Called in for a cuppa. There was a good selection on offer. Only downside was they shut at 3pm and there was no indication of closing time on the menu.

Visited to watch a play with friends having never been before! Beautiful building with access to easy parking. So well maintained yet keeping traditional features. A hidden gem! The only negative was it was really cold in the theatre part and we all shivered through...More

St George's Guildhall is a small and charming theatre space that needs a lot of TLC. Since the Arts Centre Trust disbanded earlier this year, there is less going on but you can still visit the impressive medieval Guildhall itself from Tues-Fri 10am-2pm and its...More

Lovely small theatre, a great range of shows from plays, musicals, kids shows and films. Crofter coffee house below. Staggered seating, no areas where you can't see.
