This is a beautiful theatre with some great productions, including the famous pantomime. Good food in the cafe, if you can get a seat as always busy, and people who are not eating tend to take up space which is ridiculous and I have asked them politely to move in the past. Gets very cramped in the foyer and cafe... More

Marvellous that you could visit back stage. Wind in the willows was lovely. Not sure about being allowed to eat in the theatre itself!

Seen some brilliant shows, the best was Brass, emotional and brilliantly portrayed, a great venue and good value for a great nights entertainment.

York Theatre Royal never fails to disappoint. Lovely architecture, great range of shows and pretty good value for money.

We arrived early for our show 'a taste of honey' so we decided to eat at the theatre. Surprisingly good food at a quite reasonable price. I had nachos with chilli beef. Yum. My husband had chickpea casserole, also yum! The show was very good, as is everything and anything by Hull Truck. All in all, a good night out.

We are avid theater goers (over 600 plays in 43 years), so whenever we travel we try to take in a few local productions. We were surprised, no we were shocked, at just how wonderful Witness for the Prosecution was at the Old Guildhall Chambers (perfect location by the way). We were both thrilled and mesmerized by the writing, directing,... More

The staff are always friendly and those in the booking office are very patient when I go in and make my multiple show bookings and very helpful and accommodating... More

We visited the Theatre Royal as I won tickets for a CBeebies show, which I took my 3 year old daughter to. The tickets were within the first 3 rows of the stalls - just glad we were nearer the side as we'd have had terrible neck ache looking directly up at Chris and Pui. The show was great, the... More
