“Excellent Theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We went to see Oliver! - what an experience - front row seats. Couldn't fault the ushers and other staff. Bit of a wait to be served at the bar before the show, only 2 people serving but overall a great experience.

“not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

the prices are way too high, the staff somehow looked depressed and the portions are abit too small for the price. however i must admit that the food does taste nice and the wines are very good indeed.

“great theatre...leave the food to the others”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

i love this theatre, but it must be said, they do theatre first and food and bevs second. Advice is to go somewhere else for refreshemnts as you may be left a little underwhelmed and it may spoil your show!

“Splendid Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Have visited this theatre on many occassions over the years and am never disappoiunted by the theatre, cant guarantee the show though!! Last time was to see Oliver with Brian Conley as Fagan. The theatre has been re-furbished to an excellent standard and many origional features have been re-introduced. legroom is generous, good as I am 6ft plus. Bar areas and cafes good too.

“An theatrical gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The refurbished theatre is breathtaking in style and elegance. the acoustics are very good and the supporting facilities (bars etc) are first rate. Top class performers are to be seen regularly, in particular The RSC..
