Comfortable cafe at the back of the theatre , we've only visited for morning coffee but other meals are served. Very nice coffee and fresh scones. Very fairly priced too.

Often pop in to the Arts Centre whilst shopping. A superb venue for exhibitions, lectures and general entertainments. Super cafe space and conveniences. Ground floor well able to accept wheelchairs. Not sure about upstairs gallery.

Have visited here a few times now, mostly for the excellent live music events hosted here, or the equally excellent art exhibitions. A real jewel in Bridport, that is staffed by lovely, lovely folk, and is well run and well maintained. Don't hesitate to visit.

My wife and I took a party of friends to see the Beach Boyz concert. The ticket staff, bar lads and other members of the team all facilitated our arrival and drinks arrangements which went like clockwork. The band exceeded all expectations and a brilliant...More
