Theatre is modern and comfortable with nice bar too. We were late for the performance but the staff were great with us, sitting us in the bar with a script and then smuggling us in discreetly. All performances I have seen here have been great.

We just saw are first production at the Playhouse. It is a very nice comfortable little theatre, and there is not a bad seat in the house. The play we saw was well acted and we were very pleased to have gone. If a play looks interesting - go!

You do not have to travel to London for great theatre. An independant theatre offering everything from comedy to drama. Have visited regularly for ten years and some great productions

Having discovered that Oxford Park & & Ride buses operate until 11.30pm we gave this theatre a try. Our seats were comfortable - even for my husband who is not a small man. Full house which did get a little warm but we did choose one of our rare hot days. Found the refreshment prices a little steep but there... More

Enjoyed the show and our three little children were among many others - a little harsh on the grown ups without children really. Pick your show accordingly, would be my advice.

Every year I take clients to see the panto at the playhouse. The staff are welcoming, seats are very comfortable,and the theatre doesn't have a bad seat in the house. A great place to see live theatre.
