“Thank goodness it is finally open again.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

Great wee theatre and always a very good programme of events. The only reason I haven't given top marks is because of the bar,such long queues and not enough staff on duty.

“Jewel in Belfast's Cultural Crown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

The new building is impressive and the coffee shop is a great addition for a place to meet even if not visiting the theatre for a show. Exceptional programme - especially loved 'The Painkiller'. Will be visiting again very soon!

“The Little Prince”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

Enjoyable surroundings, loved the portraits in the foyer. The theatre was lovely although I didn't think an awful lot on the show we saw, but hey, it was a night out with the wife, that made up for it.

Booked a room for a seminar and lunch. Excellent service and venue. Staff friendly, courteous and attentive. Food supplied by outside caterers. The buffet was superb.
