saw the passing place and enjoyed it very much. The bar was great with friendly staff. We never ate here so cant comment. The theatre is very compact so you are not to far from the stage. The atmosphere is very good in the auditorium. Worth a visit

We saw Yellow on the Broom which we really enjoyed. An imaginative adaptation of an autobiography that clearly views the past with affection for a lost traveller's life, this was a challenge to adapt to the stage but worked well in this production. Excellent acoustics, a friendly atmosphere and a good gift shop. mA theatre that would be worth returning... More

It was lighthearted with a very Scottish bias so good entertainment for a holiday maker. We liked the musical.

We went to see one of the Stage Talks and it was really interesting and informative. Theatre is in a lovely setting and the gift shop and cafe are worth a visit. Views from cafe qnd restaurant are lovely.

Wine and done before the theatre at the Theatre Restaurant. It's a great evening out. Enjoy good food then step into the theatre and relax while enjoying the stage show. Beautifully organised, timing perfect, actors very good.

A very professional theatre group with a choice of plays such that you can see six plays in as many days. Gone here for years now and never have been disappointed

We love this small theatre, they have a great bunch of actors who present some excellent plays and musicals. Large enough for atmosphere, and small enough to have that intimate feel. If you intend having dinner in the restaurant before a performance, make sure you book early enough, we missed out last time. A very comfortable bar do serve nice... More

This could be the best Repertory Theatre in the UK. If there is better, tell me We loved it so much when we saw 3 plays in 2013 that we returned this year and saw all 6 plays highlighting their Scottish Writers. Perfect Days was outstanding but Scotland might be "the new black" in musical comedy as "Whisky Kisses" captured... More

The theatre itself is relatively small in such a large building. The play was really good and the bar re-opened after the performance. I have always wanted to see a production here and now I have I will definitely revisit in the future.
