Went and see Wicked this evening and the theatre and show were fantastic. Great service by the staff, all were smiling and pleasant. Good products including the ice cream rather than cheaper alternatives. One slight issue - no popcorn!

I am really quite against most plays and shows; although I understand that the Mayflower has first class performances of the latest. However, they do have a really good programme of ballet and opera performances throughout the year, and the ice cream served in the intervals is really good. However, they always have an

we have been to the Mayflower several times and have had a great experience every time, we normally book for a meal at the Ovation restaurant as during big shows the chance of walking in anywhere and getting a table are worse than winning the lottery. we recently saw Wicked and it was absolutely amazing, they deserved and got a...

I've only been a few times but it is a fantastic Theatre, Such a good variety of shows on offer. Located near the heart of the City so it's perfect to have a meal out or a few drinks before hand and then a stroll to the show. Definitely worth a visit.

We have visited the theatre for many years although this is my first review The variety and quality of shows available here are amazing - why travel to London when you can see the shows here? We saw Wicked yesterday - well most of it as stuck in traffic so missed the opening 20 minutes or so - please allow... More

Love the way seats are arranged. You will have good view of the stage wherever you are seated. There are also good cafes close by for a quick drink before and after shows. However, I must stress parking can be a bit of a challenge.

We have visited the Mayflower Theatre before but had forgotten how beautiful it is. It is just as good as any West End theatre and it showcases the best shows that have either just finished or are about to be on in London. Access is easy, right by the train station and just off the motorway with a wonderful restaurant... More

I took the children to watch 'Singing in the Rain' at the Mayflower. The booking's staff were helpful getting me tickets with a good view for a fair price. The theatre is very 'old fashioned' inside and has stacks of character. It was easy to get a drink during the interval and once again the staff were great. The show... More

Good acoustics and lighting make this a great out of West End venue for theatre. Not seen a play, performance, musical that has been let down by this venue.

We enjoyed a thoroughly pleasant visit to The Mayflower for what was the final day of this excellent show. The production and the players were really nice. The theatre itself is a simply wonderful old world charming place with so much entertainment history. The Beatles and the Stones amongst others guested here back in the 60's. Its great to see...
