Just been to the Panto here and had a really good time. Ate in the restaurant first & then into the show. I have attended a wide variety of shows here from music concerts to plays to ballet. All have been equally good at very reasonable prices and I have never been disappointed with the production. Website is easy to... More

What a great Theatre. The staff are fantastic and I am sure drafted in especially for the panto events. The feature panto is Peter Pan with Craig Revell Horwood as Captain Hook - strictly brilliant....!!! Laughed out loud at Smee and Willy the puppet. I go to the Orchard for different events and have to say the staff are always... More

we saw Miracle on 34th Street which was fantastic but getting out of the car park was a complete and utter nightmare with no lifts working and elderly and disabled guests struggling up and down the stairs and the queues for parking tickets were ridiculous. To be honest this would put me off attending the Orchard again the council need... More

We went to see this show and were very impressed with the show. It was very enjoyable and the seats were good. The show differed slightly from the programme details but it was still a great time.

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.

Great seats on the gallery, plenty of space. Really impressed with the staff who made sure people had turned off their mobile phones so not to disturb Joan's performance

Nice restaurant, good service, however the pasta was overcooked for the dish I ordered and the chips on my husbands choice were already salted. That is not good as a lot of people are on low or no salt diets for health reasons. Otherwise the meal was excellent and a good start to an excellent evenings entertainment.

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
