“Beautifully restored old theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Good plays and pleasant surroundings? The royal circle has the best views of the stage, we travel regularly to see plays here as there is always something of interest and such a lovely setting

“Its not cosy or quaint - just great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Looking at some of the reviews on this site you could form the view that this beautiful traditional old theatre is the size of a pocket handkerchief - but it's actually quite big. Perhaps they mean that the great atmosphere is intimate. The traditional design.means that every seat has to be within a reasonable distance of the stage. Lovely traditional fixtures and fittings too

But in case you think it's just for traditional theatre, I went to see Fascinating Aida perform and the show was rocking.

“Pre- theatre dining meant no problem getting to our seats.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Booked for The Vaults, friendly staff, dishes are cooked to order so arrive early as most take 20 minutes. tell the staff you are going to the play(if you are). Couldn't find the entrance to the restaurant, and arrived at the stage door, which burst open and we met one of the actors from The Abbey company on tour.
To find the restaurant go in through the theatre entrance and down some well-hidden steps.

“A nice cosy theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

This is a friendly little Theatre but do make sure when booking seats that you are away from some of the Columns in the auditorium that can obscure a view of the Stage

“Lady killers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

An excellent play in a superb well managed theatre. The Theatre Royal is just the right size to create a good atmosphere, far better than larger venues.
