“Great place to catch a show.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Enjoyed the show and the coffee here too. Good service and very friendly staff. Only thing is its a little squashed in the seats for me. A little too close on either side but that's a new theatre!

“Gem of a Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Plymouth is very privileged to have a Theatre of this calibre,my wife and I have seen many productions which are always of the highest quality,our recent visit was to see That'll be the day,what a superb show.
We have booked for next march when the show returns,the seating is reasonably spacious,better than some of the West End Theatres,with good views,the acoustics are good,we find the restaurant expensive so we eat elsewhere.
There are several car parks close by,and on the main Bus routes along Royal Parade.
A gem that needs to be cherished.
