It is a beautiful old theatre which seats about 1100 people. It looks beautifully maintained. It's clean, the reception and bar areas are bright and airy and, most importantly of all for... More

Just go and look at it, even if you can't get a show. A quaint beautiful theatre One thing though, if you are over 5'6" sitting in the back of the dress circle, you may find you can't see the top of the scenery or read superscript etc

The service was ok, and drinks were reasonably priced. I didn't feel it was at all a mindblowing place at all and the show (Johnny Cash Roadshow) was what impressed me the most. It wasn't particulary comfortable, nor uncomfortable, just very standard

What a brilliant show, Jason's voice in great, and he has a fantastic female drummer to drive the show. ( Mairi G). There was a good mix of all your favourite songs and talking with the crowd. Watch out for this show its worth seeing.

Beautiful theatre, friendly staff, great musical show.... BUT the one thing that marred the visit considerably ....were the seats! They looked good, they were clean, spaced well, a good size but it ends there! THEY HAD SUCH A THIN, LOW GRADE FOAM on a solid wood base, that after as little as twenty minutes you start to suffer poor blood... More

Close to all the action and an amazing show - which because we were late (our fault) they let us go in for only 5 pounds each
