Have been to a couple of shows there and it is a brilliant little independent theatre. Food is good and drinks are reasonably priced. The auditorium is great with an old feel and good views all round. Will be returning in the near future!

Excellent fun evening, last night at the friendly Barbican Theatre. Hadn't heard of this Devon theatre group but we were comprehensively entertained and left in great spirits to see the night out in the nearby Dolphin.

Too hot to be cooked in a wok, and change the packaging that says microwave proof, it shows Staff are charming, place relaxed. Food just a bit missing even at this price.
