First visit having lived in area three years, don’t think it’s advertised enough. Good parking. Quaint building. Smelt damp on entry. Cheap bar. Show we saw, Lionel Ritchie, was a bit amateur but overall good experience. Pop up restaurant looked good.

I love the quay it's a charming theatre staffed by locals that puts on the kind of joyous entertainment that is both better and cheaper than you'd expect.

The quay is much more than a theatre. The bar is very welcoming, with views of the stour; coffee is good and there is a costume hire place on the top floor.I recommend a drop in and suggest signing up for more information about events.
