The mini-golf facilities were excellent! They were thoughtfully designed and the game was great fun. There is a lovely bar area and plenty of seating. Overall the atmosphere was great and staff were friendly and helpful- highly recommend a visit!

What a lovely lil' pop-up bar and Theatre. Seen some amazing shows in there, had some sexy drinks, and ate a load of delicious toasties. I am now very fat and satisfied. Check it out. Loads of fun for all!

Great addition to the Exeter Quay. Brings more variety to what already was a great area. Watched a performance before it was shown at the Edinburgh fringe for a fiver! In 2017! Definitely worth a visit and hopefully it is here to stay!

Great vibe, very cheap theatre and just nice to gave something a bit different going on in Exeter. Especially nice for summer evenings by the quay with a bit of table tennis.
