A GreatPlace.
Oct 2019
Took 89 year old to see Downton Abbey. When I rang about the special requirements the staff were very helpful. On arrival they were great in helping us with seating arrangements. The atmosphere of this place is relaxing and peaceful and friendly. The old converted petrol station into a theatre is a must see plus looking at the memorabilia..... cameras etc. comfortable seats Senior prices and you can buy beverages alcoholic drinks to sip on whilst watching the movie.

A well restored theater, plenty of different shows. But the theater itself is great. The sound could be a better.

Dubliners Tribute Unfortunately really Bad Sound
Jul 2018 • Friends
this is a great venue to see live music close up. Have been several times and they have some good acts.
However unfortunately last night we were looking forward to seeing Chris Kavanagh with his Luke Kelly, Dubliners tribute. He was too oud which ruined his diction and over powered the guy playing pipes and violins with him. Huge young Irish crownd who did not seem to care as they knew all the songs and when not singing along were talking so i guess he felt he had to be loud.We did speak to sound man at interval but did not seem to make any difference.
All 6 of us were really disappointed.

A cold and hungry evening
Aug 2017 • Friends
It’s nice and easy to get out to this venue on public transport and it’s surrounded by plenty of good options for a pre-show drink or an after-show supper. The downstairs Velvet Room is a bit tired, with wobbly tables and stained chairs, and the night we were there it felt really chilly on a winter's evening - we kept our jackets on throughout and even that was only just enough. The bar offers a limited range of drinks (served with a friendly smile) but there are no food options and we were told we couldn't bring nibbles/food in from outside - come on, guys, it's gotta be one or the other! I guess you tolerate it depending on what you're coming to see...but there's plenty of room for improvement here.

Great olace

Terror old retro theatre. You can't get that impression from the street. I've seen some good performers here over the years including Calexico and Tony Joe White. The atmosphere is good. Acoustics too.

Beautifully restored

Went to see Jeff Duff perform at this theatre and the exterior certainly belies what lies behind the doors. The theatre has been restored and is a great venue, with tables to sit at, and a bar. I didn't have a meal so cannot comment but as a music venue it can't be faulted.
