We visited the December craft fair which had around 6 stalls selling the usual bags, cards, jewellery etc. In the cafe we paid a very reasonable price of £3.50 for a very large toasted tea cake and two mugs of tea. Served very quickly. Nice warm environment, festively decorated with lights and little poinsettia plants on the 4 tables.

We went to see Gervase Phinn at the Courthouse, and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The staff were friendly and helpful, and it's good to see a venue like this put to such good use. Long may it continue!

What a fabulous small & intimate venue!!Wholly geared up for wheelchair-users There is ample parking, with disabled spaces, right next door. Staff very helpful. Well worth the one and a half hour journey over from Lancashire - we will be keeping a close eye out for future events.

Even when I lived in Leeds, I often made the journey to see favourite artists, who never made it to Leeds because the cost of the few venues was prohibitive. The Courthouse, and its associated venue in Saltaire, offer relaxed affordable evenings in fine surroundings. I've travelled to The Sage in Gateshead, and paid through the nose to see performers,...

We went to see a talk by Dan Cruickshank, the talk wasn't what was advertised but still excellent. The venue is idea for these sort of events, compact, good facilities and centrally located. There is a bar 7 café serving drinks and snacks, the auditorium was good for this sort of event.

We've seen a few events here and it's a great place for live music. Only thing I would alter is the beer is far too cold, in bottles in the fridge.
