Very intimate little theatre that has great shows. You should definitely eat somewhere else first as the food is very limited. Not allowed to bring in own drinks. Biggest problem is that no drinking is allowed in the theatre so if you ordered a glass of wine, you have to chuck it away or down it. Overall experience is average.

We visit here at least twice a year. The theatre is small with seating in the main area as well as a small balcony. The small size puts you close to stage and this creates a very personal feel with performers. Limited food options so dine out before or after. We took our own wine to enjoy during shows in... More

Such a shame. Went to Centurion Theatre after an absence of over a year. In the interim, the restaurant next to the theatre has closed down and for food in the bar, you have to be content with a cheese platter, if you booked it in advance. Theatre is still intimate, but I miss the restaurant.

This is a good local little theatre that probably seats around 200 people. The size keeps you in close contact with the actors and a regular change of shows make it worth visiting on a regular basis. There is a restaurant in the same building as well.

Always a fun night out. We have been to Centurion Theatre on many occasions and we were never disappointed! We love the concept that you can sip on your wine while enjoying a great show!

First you go for a meal, and then see a show. The food was a surprise. It was actually a very good buffet. The shows are always of high quality.

It is just a very personal small theatre in a suburban area with a small theatre atmosphere. I am privileged to have it close to my home.

The whole bundled experience of good theater and really very good food. I was knocked off my feet when I tasted the exquisite food that this little hidden away theater restaurant prepares. Well worth it.
