Went to watch riverdance here last night with my husband and two teenage daughters. Show was amazing, service at the bar was good and the drinks reasonably priced. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Managed very well!

What a beautiful Art Deco building, spacious, with a lot going on. There was a bar with a band playing which was nice and also a large cafe. Also a ballroom but we couldn't go in as it was being used. Shame as I would love to see this. Very impressed. Wish I had visited before, as I never realised... More

We went to the ballroom to watch the dancing, it has the most amazing dance floor and the atmosphere was electric.

The winter gardens are amazing, I especially like the cafe and bar area. The cakes are nice, it is nice to enjoy a pot of tea in the relaxing cafe. I have seen a few productions at the opera house, it is comfortable and there is plenty of legroom.
