I love the Orchard because its just the right size, even if you were up on the top row you still have a good view of everyone on stage. Staff are always very helpful and polite.

First class venue for the shows they stage. Can thoroughly recommend it for the atmosphere. Wherever you sit you can see the stage. The restuarant is good, only provides three alternatives, little bit pricey, but the quality of the first is first class, it was delivered to the table steaming hot.

Just had the most marvelous time at the Orchard watching Omid Djalili's comedy show. I have to say I have pulled the muscles in my sides from laughing. The theatre was easy to get to and parking was ample. Brilliant evening.

Always seem to be a good range of shows on at The Orchard Theatre - this time round we saw The Manfreds, who were excellent and it was a great show. Pre-booking drinks in the interval is a great idea, although paying £6 for a plastic beaker of wine (assuming you want to be able to take it into the... More

Went to see the South at the orchard. It was a great show with all the best stuff from the beautiful south. Also eat in restaurant and food was really good. If I had one complaint it's that the seats could do with replacing as they are really worn
