Been here many times, great atmosphere and superb gigs every time .

Venue never disappoints, you're close to the action wherever you stand

Been here several times now! It has a decent capacity without loosing the intimate feel, good bar and easy to find. The sound was a tad unbalanced the last time I was here but not enough to loose rating over. Last bands I went to see here were Thuum and Seething Akira...both were well worth the drive from Poole to see. Will definitely come back for another gig here

I regularly visit the Wedgwood Rooms for gigs and always find it a great place to go. I recently attended at a gig to raise money for charity and Geoff the manager, and the rest of the staff couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating which resulted in us raising our highest total yet. Great venue, great staff!

Been here a couple of times now and really enjoyed it. OK, the place is basic and a bit run-down in the daylight but usually the lights are off so that's not really so much of a problem. It's a fairly typical standing only music venue, a large black room with stage at one end and bar in an ante-room to one side. Loos are a bit manky but, then again, that tends to be part and parcel.
Both times we've been here we've enjoyed the atmosphere and being able to get up close to the artists without being absolutely crammed in. The bar is basic but has always had a couple of local real options so happy days!

Went to see Lissie and she was awesome, however the venue is tired and grubby, queing up is badly organised and we were pleased to finally get in after being stood outside in the cold for an hour. Drinks were fairly priced which was good but once you have one you would not be able to squeeze back to the bar as it was o busy.
Had a great night but not because of the venue , because of the artist.
