“Beautiful interior detail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

Whilst I only got to see the interior for an upmarket conference venue stage use, the place is majestic and genuinely reminds you of other grand theaters of Europe even if on a smaller scale. Seats are comfy and I loved the balconies. Only challenge was the one male WC I used was really quite shoddy ... Goes with the age in suppose. Very friendly bar staff

“Taking over the Assylum - a real gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Lovely old theatre which has had a considerable facelift. We went to see a great play, Taking over the Assylum. The play and cast were excellent and would recommend it. As with all theatres, mortgage needed for the food and drinks, but worth it to keep this lovely theatre going!
