A beautiful grade II listed Victorian building.

A community hub with an on site cafe, room hire, and a wedding, music and alcohol license.

Our welcoming reception is staffed from 8.30am – 8pm to greet you and help with any queries.

There is pay and display parking right outside the building and we are 5-10 minutes from a well served bus route and 20-25 minute walk from Temple Meads train station.

We are proud holders of the Gold Grading from the Green Business Tourism Scheme which demonstrates our high environmental standards, so when you hire with us you can be sure that you are making an ethical choice.

The fantastic café is run by Kate’s Kitchen, serving delicious food and offering excellent service every weekday. So if you are passing by or visiting the Southville Centre come on in to enjoy a wide selection of food, including gourmet sandwiches & baguettes, warm dishes and homemade cakes all high quality, made using seasonal ingredients, and produced as locally as possible. All dietary requirements are catered for.
