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!

Great when going to theatre for a meal. Nice feeling about the place. Not a great deal on the plate but ample and most enjoyable

Our family really enjoyed Snow White - well scripted and a great performance from an enthusiastic and energetic cast. This is a lovely theatre and, to my mind, knocks the spots off many of the bigger city theatres. Only minor complaint was the online booking system which split up our 4 seats either side of the sound desk when there... More

Hats off to the cast of Snow White this year - can honestly say that this years production was the best that I have seen! The theatre is quite small which meant that the cast were able to get members of the audience involved. Theatre has a lovely little bar too.
