Great location by the sea. At the interval views were spectacular from the balcony. Had brilliant front row seats and took the cable car back up to the Esplanade. Only cost 80p and was a relief for my legs!

We saw a summer show, fantastic. Great atmosphere, great value, absolutely super performers. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will be back. Places like this deserve support. Defy anyone not to come away without singing the songs

Visited Spa Theatre for first time 15 May to see Stewart Lee. The building is beautiful, if a bit tired and the staff were more than helpful, pleasant and polite. However, we were sat in the balcony in TINY seats in stiflingly hot conditions. Someone else mentioned that the small windows were not opened - we tried to open them... More

Excellent gig by Stewart Lee. Council owned spa has a very unimaginative bar. Why no local beers? We were told to use the vending machines for crisps or water even though there was a jug of water on the bar for customers to use. There is a privately owned bar next door (Farrers) so no idea why Council bother with... More

Farrers is great for simple meals cooked well. Try the Fish Finger hot sandwiches. Expecting this with a concert starting at 7 we arrived at 550 to eat and they had closed. The burger type food in the festival was not only very late, did not consist of the minuscule menu offered and did not serve the sponsor's beer in... More

Attended the Russell Watson concert last Saturday at the Spa and had a meal in Farrars (part of the complex) prior to the event. I had read some iffy reviews on Trip Advisor but still gave it a try. It was excellent! The food was good, the staff were attentive and efficient. The place was very busy about an hour... More

Called in for breakfast after a stroll along the prom. I ordered the traditional full English fry up. Service was fast with the girls waiting on being very pleasant. The food was hot and well cooked. All in all a great breakfast experience. Thank you.
