As a regular audience member and an annually a performer at this venue, I whole heartedly can recommend and vouch for this theatre. This 400 seat auditorium is situated in an old building that used to be a malting so that has been renovated to be a modern purpose built theatre equipped with state of the art equipment. There is...

After a lovely lunch at the Last Wine Bar we ventured into a sunlit outside bar at The Playhouse. Very busy and very 'studenty' but equally friendly with a wide choice of drinks (ours went from g'n't, through wine and beers and a coffee). Not on the usual bar/pub circuit but well worth a visit.

Turned away this evening because they assumed we were a 'pub crawl' however we were just a group of friends visiting as a birthday night out. The SIX of us were in fancy dress (very reserved) and were refused drinks and told to leave as they 'don't do that kind of thing here.' What kind of thing? Take paying customers... More

Lovely cosy little bar with outside area, excellent selection of real ales and quality lagers, not the generic rubbish. Super selection of snacks, all round lovely ambience.

Love it when I can visit the Playhouse to see all my favourite comedians. The Playhouse has a really good atmosphere and is small and friendly. Great bar for a pre show drink and easy website to book your tickets.

Pleasant and friendly small theatre. Good views of the stage. Fairly comfortable seats. Quirky choice of productions which are affordably priced, encouraging experimentation.

The theatre is well located next to the river and has a superb bar with a great atmosphere. The theatre was a nice size ( 500/600?) and had great acoustics which helped create a good atmosphere. Will definitely go back there particularly for another comedy night.

Love this play! Often come here to see a play or a comedian and always have a great night. I love the authenticity of the place and the great choice of drinks available. Whether it be a yummy cider in the evening or a fruity tea on a cold afternoon. Always a pleasant experience with lovely polite staff and never... More

I prefer to see an act like a stand up comedian here, rather than in a large theatre. It's more casual and a 'no frills' type of venue, but the seats provide a great view of the stage. We have recently seen Milton Jones, and Henning Wehn and really enjoyed both evenings. I can't really comment on the bar as... More
