Good bits Great venue, great selections of acts, great location, really good ticket prices. Three bars. Bad bits. The ladies Loo's and the Rose wine. Avoid both if you can.

A great little theatre with an intimate feel. A good selection of drinks at the bar and plenty of staff on hand to help. Clean throughout and a good venue for comedy.

It is child and family friendly but it is a very small theatre. There are a number of steps and is a little cramped (storage of a pram may be limited) and steps are a bit steep. This is not saying you can’t but to allow you... More

Hi - Please can you help with some hotel recommendations. We are coming to London for three nights on the 16th, 17th and 18th October. We be arriving into Victoria station, we will be attending a concert at the Hammersmith Apollo and another event at the Leicester Square Theatre, so need to be located somewhere convenient for easy travel to and from these areas. I have some difficulty walking long distances so would prefer a hotel near to a tube station. Our budget is £70 to £100 per...More

Are you taking the coach to Victoria Coach Station? Hammersmith and Leicester Square are not terribly near each other so I think you'll have to split the difference and stay somewhere between the two.

Have a look at the Premier Inn Kensington in Knaresborough Place as well, very near Earl's Court station. Are you...More
