We visited here not in the main auditorium but another studio. The bar here was very good with a great selection of wines and even featured real ale. Good atmosphere before and after the show with friendly eager staff. There appeared to be an area for meals but we had already eaten. Would definitely visit this place if in the... More

Great venue, I have been here many times, one of Nottingham's gems. The backstage tour on open day is great. Can't wait to return for pantomime!

One of the best kept secrets is Nottingham Playhouses Backstage Pass, which for £35 for 2 people is excellent value. It provides you with 2 free tickets for a preview show of your choice , half price tickets and other discounts, 2 free programmes and most importantly discounts on your drinks in Cast bar. The programme is very varied with... More

Caitlin Moran was great! Very funny indeed! Think it was a sell out so quite slow to get served, ran out of house wine and no where to sit. Heard the food is good but perhaps go when its a bit quieter.

We were recommended by a friend to see the Kit Runner at the Nottingham Playhouse - the play was memorising and very true to the actual book, so well depicted, it held our attention all through the play and was also easy to follow (even if you haven't read the book) - the actors got a standing ovation which they...

Been here on several occasions and am yet to be disappointed! Great plays and great sets each time. In particular 1984 and Richard III have stood out to me.

My partner and I ate here before a night out in Nottingham as we were stqying in the hotel nearby. , The staff are very helpful and the food is OK, although the menu is a bit limited. I would go back for a pre-theatre meal but otherise we will probably eat somewhere with a little more choice next time.

Great all round theatre with the most interesting, best quality programme in Nottingham. Lovely building inside and out, good facilities with nice bar that also serves good food. We have enjoyed family day trips to the panto and The Very Hungry Caterpillar and also more grown up evenings out, most recently to a wonderful version of 1984. The seating is... More

We go and see the Panto every New Years Eve plus extra visits during the year and it's always been fab! Facilities are great with lovely food and drink available. Staff are always brilliant. A lovely little theatre!
