Although fairly small, this theatre packs a punch. Situated near the city centre, offering a huge range of entertainment, from pantomimes to folk singers. There's great bar, and a café, handy box office, just inside the door. What ever the event, you'll find a fantastic atmosphere, seats I find are very reasonably priced, and makes for an enjoyable night out... More

Visited this theatre recently, it's quite small and intimate but a lovely venue. Easy to find, easy to access the auditorium whether you can walk or need assistance. Seats comfy, no pillars to get in your view! I have also performed there with a group of singers and it is a surprisingly big space although the dressing rooms are a... More

Very friendly staff. Good bar not overpriced like some theatres, £3.60 for large glass of rose. Not bad at all.

The Barnfield offers great acoustics, and atmosphere - all of the seats have a good view, and it's right in the centre of Exeter. The theatre seems to be widening its coverage of live music - especially singer songwriters. We went to see Show of Hands, who sold out 2 nights, and was an excellent show. Upcoming are people like... More

The Barnfield Theatre is a delight. It's not big, compact and bijou, yet the theatre management manage to put on some really good shows throughout the year. The productions are varied and there is something for everyone. There is a small bar and coffee shop on the ground floor. Should you require disabled access do mention this. Seats are available...

The Barnfield has been a thriving theatre for as long as I can remember. The seating is nicely tiered for a good view. The bar to the right of the entrance is good for an interval drink. I don't go very often but when I do I always enjoy it. They have a very varied programme and I think its... More

Small intimate theatre with mainly amateur productions which are of a very high standard for the ticket price usually about £12

Been twice. The events were OK but the general feel pf the theatre and building is of increasingly jaded well intentioned worthiness. Maybe cash is short. The building still has a little traditional style but not a lot and gives the impression that unless some vision and cash is available soon it may quietly fade away.
