Address
Neighborhood: Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours. 


How to get there
  • Leicester Square • 3 min walk

Great play, not so great staff
Nov 2021 • Solo
Great play, simple set & lovely old theatre. I did get an idea who dunnit but still thoroughly enjoyed watching. My only complaint - some of the staff were a bit snappy & rude. I was seated in the orchestra stalls but queued at the main door as it is not clear at all which door to queue at for which seats. When I got to the front the doorman snapped at me "no - that's what I was just saying, you should be at the side entrance!", unfortunately nobody further than 5 feet away from him could tell a word he said when he'd opened the doors. The gentleman working the bar in the stalls wasn't exactly warm & friendly either. I told him I'd pre-ordered drinks, he gruffly replied I needed to click the link on the text message, however there is no signal in the building so the link would not open.
Overall a great evening but some of the staff need to work on their people skills & I think there should be clearer signage outside so people know where to queue

Comfortable

On Saturday 20th, my sister and I went to the theatre. We both loved the show and the environment alike. We sat downstairs at the orchestra level and had a perfect view.

Classic Theatre with a great "Who-Dun-It" Play
Nov 2021
The St. Martin's Theatre is a great classic building. Plenty of impressive woodwork and we had a great view from our seats. The theatre was showing Mousetrap which is the longest running play in the World. I am not going to say anything about this play and spoil it except it's well worth seeing. The management and staff at the theatre were all very helpful.

Loved it

Great theatre. Friendly staff. My only word of caution is that if you’re a tall person, try booking an end seat.
Nice wine and other refreshments available more show and during the intermission

Knock it Down!
Sep 2021
St Martin's theatre opened in 1916; 104 years ago...and it shows. It is run down, narrow, and very uncomfortable. No investment or improvements visible. The tube has larger seats. The toilets are disgusting. 3r World country conditions. It's grade 2 listed by English Heritage but not fit for purpose.

Beautiful Theatre but Bar Service Woeful
Aug 2021
We visited this theatre a few weeks ago to see the Mousetrap which we enjoyed. this is an absolutely stunning little theatre with loads of character and we very much enjoyed the play. However, we had pre-ordered a half bottle of Taittinger Champagne for the interval and went to collect it from the bar. We were told we couldn't take the bottle through with us and the barman said he would have to pour it into plastic glasses.... totally understandable I thought.... however, he poured our half bottle of Champagne into two plastic PINT glasses. Come on guys, if you are offering champagne, surely some plastic champagne/wine glasses would be the least you could offer!

Way too hot in there.

Train seats on way home were more comfortable. I"m only 5'8 & but leg room was a struggle.

Mousetrap play
Jul 2021
Went to watch Mousetrap on Saturday 31st July 2021 and it was an excellent experience overall, a special and massive thanks to Theatre manager- Carla and FOH Supervisor- Monloa who went above and beyond to facilitate my request for a multi-faith/prayer room. Thank you both!
