“Great architecture, shame about the rest”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

Went for a charity fashion show in 2011 and the building is quite grand where you can tell there is character and history behind it with each room. However, you'll find this place is very very expensive - both hiring the venue and especially the bar. We were given drinks tokens with our tickets so didn't effect us as much but hearing £4 for a pint is daylight robbery - more expensive that cheltenhams finest. Additionally if they are to host heating events in the venue, although at first glance offers a lot of space but if you're trying to fit a few hundred in you'll find 'sardines' to be the better word.

“Nice old building”
Reviewed 28 December 2011

Went to an antique fair here and it was nice. There was some high quality stuff there. The building itself is worth a visit.

“What better place to sit an exam!”
Reviewed 30 November 2011

I've only ever been to the Pump Room to sit accountancy exams - not the most thrilling of activities.

Yet having it in the main ball room certainly enhances the experience. The central chandelier is incredible, and the overall design of this place exudes luxury and a pleasant feel.

I can imagine that it would be a great venue for a variety of events!

Very easy to reach by car as well, and within easy walking distance of the town centre.
