This is a beautiful conversion and some interesting gift type shops inside. More appealing to the female than male!

Had lunch at the cafe, surprisingly good menu with something for most people to enjoy. The fish food platter was exceptional, as was the pan fried hake. Very clean tasting and fresh, definitely recommend.

Popped in for a coffee in the restaurant above the concert hall. Fabulous service, friendly and welcoming. Fantastic views across the river and marshes and a Barbara Hepworth sculpture thrown in for good measure.

There is a lovely range of craft shops and cafes by a beautiful riverside setting. It was good to be able to see inside the theatre whilst no performance was on.
