It's a PANTO and it's aimed at entertainment and having fun with children in mind, that's CHILDREN Emily M... if your prime motive for watching PANTO is musical ability.... you haven't really...

The Byre is looking good with all the Christmas lights. Suitable for all ages. We ate in the bar, and the food very good. Usual range of foods with soup and sandwich combo, or either served on its own. Served on a wooden platter, Christmas napkins. The scones looked like a meal in them selves, but I did not have...

Had a great night at the Byre. Lovely theatre. Great show. Saw Jack and the Beanstalk pantomime. Suitable for all ages. Fantastic cast. The theatre also has a restaurant and bar. Everybody had a fantastic time including the cast who looked like they were enjoying the show as well. Can't praise it enough.

Wonderful atmosphere, helpful staff, and great place to eat. Pick your show from various themes, some professional thespians, others very good local groups. Alway of a high class and money well spent venue.

I reviewed this theatre fairly recently. Sadly it has closed due to lack of funding from Arts bodies in Scotland. A great shame. It is however supposed to reopen shortly under the aegis of the local Council so hopefully we eill be able to use its facilities again.

One of the centres of culture in St. Andrews. I hear this place may close due to lack of funding. This would be very, very sad, and a great loss to all. Anyone who ever visits St. Andrews MUST taste the warm experience offered at this beautiful theatre - go show your support for the Arts here!
