The outer areas of the hall are excellent and offer pleasant surroundings..the hall as such is still pretty good in acoustic value but really does look old and worn down now..the full refit should up grade this our valued Bristol venue and make it more...More

This is an intimate, atmospheric venue with good acoustics for orchestral events. My only criticism would be that the seats are very uncomfortable and I'm sure my shifting about towards the end of the performance must have been annoying everyone else.More

Staff are rude and patronising. The venue is aimed at keeping the elite (their invited guest list) away from the peasants (the rest of us). No attempt to create an inclusive welcoming space. A great opportunity missed.
