We purchased tickets to go and watch Ken Dodd with my grandparents and we bought second tier seats thinking we'd be able to clearly see and be out of the way. OH NO! We could see but we couldn't hear a word he was saying, it's not that we couldn't understand him, it's the fact that the microphone wasn't turned... More

Went to Easter panto, Beauty and the Beast, with grand daughter. Firstly the venue - such a fabulous Art Deco building carefully restored. The restaurant was like stepping back in time and the main auditorium was so lovely. It was brilliant to go to a theatre which was of interest before the show started. The staff are volunteers and clearly... More

We also had a light lunch in the delightful deco café . I would recommend this to almost anyone ,just not suitable if you have mobility... More

Enjoyed great coffee at this Art Deco gem. Wonderful that it has been restored to its 1930s splendour. Clearly much loved by visitors and staff alike. Beautiful Art Deco details at every turn. A credit to Stockport.

I treated my daughter and 7 year old grandson to afternoon tea and the 5.30 performance of Beauty and the Beast and it was a perfect afternoon. The service in the restaurant was faultless and the afternoon tea was wonderful. The pantomime was great fun with an excellent cast that appealed to adults and children. It's a great venue with...

Just been to see the Easter pantomime Beauty and the Beast. Enjoyed it, plenty of laughs and main characters that could actually sing. Love the building and very welcoming staff. I much prefer to come and watch a show at The Plaza than travel into Manchester, keep up the good work.

This place was lovely, had an old world feel. I loved my soup, and the afternoon tea was great. I did wish it was in finer China. Would go back, and recommend.

We arrived early for the show and the staff were all absolutely lovely - every single one of them was lovely and courteous and really helped make the night a good one. The lobby of the Plaza was stunning although the stairs to the toilets and bar area were very steep (however the toilets were lovely, clean and modern). The... More

Being two oldies, we relish the Thirties atmosphere and service, and the music being not too loud. However, the menu choices are getting a little tired, and a few different 'specials' would be attractive. At present, the menu is just too predictable.

I hadn't been in The Stockport Plaza since about 1966 when it was a cinema, (it was Tom Jones - the film not the singer) until about 3 years ago a Saturday lunch time free organ recital I was very impressed then, but even more impressed when I attended an afternoon matinee in June 2013 - the show was "We'll...
