I went to the pantomime here in 2013/4 (Robin Hood) and again in the 2014/5 season (Beauty and the Beast). Both were very engaging performances, with the latest one being a real extravaganza of colour, sound and action. Our kids (6 & 4) loved it (and the adults were quite impressed too). The venue is petite but all the better... More

Beautiful venue with great selection of shows suitable for all ages during each year. Lovely bar with super-helpful staff and small but interesting selection of food. Worth a visit - opposite Ashmolean.

A good clean and well run theatre with plenty of scope for refreshment both before and in the interval of the production. Helpful and pleasant staff. Location easy to find opposite the Ashmolean Museum in the centre of Oxford. Everyone in the theatre would have had a good view of the stage and production.

We have been visiting the Oxford Playhouse for many years; regretfully finding in recent years an absence of plays which took our fancy. Loving restoration comedy, She Stoops to Conquer was too much to resist. With like minded friends we visited last evening. The performance of all the players was superb, the production faultless and thoroughly entertaining. We all agreed... More

The first play written by Agatha Christie, a real feast, well acted and very well produced. Slightly spoilt by rustling sweet papers but the ushers were brilliant and dealt sensitively with the issue. Looking forward to return visit

Visited Oxford specifically to see this play as we knew some of the people taking part. Lovely theatre almost opposite the Ashmoleum Museum. Nice little bar in the reception area that does get crowded just before curtain up. It is a very new play and dealt with many issues relating to the NHS, so it is very current. The audience... More
