Been here on NYE for many years the management do listen to feedback as venue has improved best NYE event for families it's safe friendly & lively. For acts it has the up close and personal experience so lacking in venues like the 02.

Attended a Christmas party here and every part of the evening was, without exception, fantastic. The food was delicious and the entertainment perfect for the occasion. The staff could not have been more attentive and helpful.

Went to Winter Wonderland with friends and had a great time..the food was great, the staff were attentive, the entertainment was fab. We all had a great night and didn't really want to leave. I would go to this historic venue again, its a treasure that Thanet needs to embrace and enjoy !!

My wife and I attended this place earlier this week for the Shalamar concert. Having read a few of the other TripAdvisor reviews, I was concerned it might be a bit of a tip, but this wasn't what we found. It is situated right on the seafront with only a road level entrance to be seen (you walk down a... More
