The area
Address
Neighborhood: Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.

My friend kindly surprised me with tickets to see a brilliant selection of comedians. Although I had been to Soho theatre before, I have not been for a very long time due to the pandemic. It was actually quite emotional to return. It is a sweet little venue and recommend thoroughly.

I have been to the theatre and accompanying bar many times and each time I go I have a great time.
Primarily I go to the bar, but the shows I have seen (despite one, when I walked out...) have been great, especially The View Upstairs and Bourgeois and Maurice.
The bar staff deserve a special mention as they are absolutely amazing. I'm a member here and they always remember me and are so utterly pleasant. As a member you get discount and a later bar, but, I've found myself coming just to have a drink as the atmosphere is so nice.

Soho Theatre first time I have visited and will be looking for more reasons to go back.
Flawless, food fantastic fresh, clean, toilets with paper and soap. Excellent staff. Well organised no complaints and deserves my 5 star rating.

Keep up the great work.

Superb Adnams beer, well kept and a really good choice!
Went especially as we are Adnams fans!
Service wasn’t that friendly, similar to a Wetherspoons, order on the app and have your drinks put on the table with no interaction from staff.
Atmosphere (or lack of) was also similar to Wetherspoons, no background music which would have been nice. All the lights off behind the bar (perhaps they are saving power!?)
We were seated on really uncomfortable 2 foot high wood stools and asked to move to a soft seated booth but were told no as the manager wanted these for groups of 6. In the two hours we were there no groups of 6 arrived and a lone drinker took one nursing his glasses of water and a member of staff on a laptop took the other free booth. Thanks very much! (Roll eyes)
Disappointing and not what you’d expect from a venue with Adnams associated.

I had a great time here on my first visit. There’s nothing worse in these uncertain times than things being unclear about movement around a venue and other dos and donts, but the staff were really friendly, helpful and extremely approachable. I’ll definitely be returning to see what else is on.

Came to London for business and only had a few days in the city so we spontaneously decided to buy tickets (which were very affordable) to a night show at the soho theater. There is a great bar within the theater to grab a drink and Masie Adams was incredible! We laughed all night and was so glad this was one of the few things we were able to do while in town.

I was concerned about booking a standing ticket as thought it might be really annoying, cramped and with a bad view. Couldn't find any reviews anywhere so just bought it anyway as I really wanted to see Nina Conti (hilarious!) and the tickets were too cheap not too - £15 each.

Standing Ticket was absolutely amazing - we were in the upstairs theatre and the standing tickets are right at the back. It is tiered and so as we were standing we actually got a better view than if we were sitting on the back row. There is a cushioned bar to lean against on the back of the back row of seats to lean on. There were only around 10 or 15 of us standing and so we actually had lots of space and it was way more homely.
I was actually really glad to have standing tickets and would purchase these of the seated tickets in future. My boyfriend is really tall and so seating usually leaves him a bit cramped and a with a knees rammed against the row in front and a numb bum half way through a show. Standing tickets avoided this and meant we could fall about laughing too!

We also ate dinner at the theatre - food served super quick (order at 6.10 and we'd finished eating by 6.50) and was really good too. Lamba Kofta Burger (giant!) with chips and hummus and a bacon cheeseburger. Both good quality and good value for Soho.

We left Soho Theatre feeling absolutely robbed after attending one of their comedy shows in the downstairs bar. For £15 a ticket we expected this to be a night out, but all we got was one comedian who did a 45 minute slot. The over zealous staff didn’t even let us stay at the table we had booked to have a drink afterwards, instead pressuring us to leave the bar and move upstairs which was absolutely packed with no seats available. One member of staff (Rachel) even threatened to get security to remove us, and when we complained about the poor value for money her response was “well that’s normal for a festival”. Seemingly unaware that that would be a terrible response even if this was a festival, and even worse considering this was a Soho Theatre show!

This review is no reflection on the comedian who was decent, however we felt sorry for him having to do his slot without any sort of introduction or warm-up. As a result the crowd was pretty muted and not like any other comedy show I’ve been to. I’d strongly recommend anyone to avoid Soho Theatre for comedy and stick to the specialist comedy clubs who understand what makes a good night out.

The venue has a history of cutting edge productions, but our recent visit was definitely the last. Perhaps there has been a change of management, but the surly staff members were incredibly pushy and hostile, moving us from our seats during the performance, for no apparent reason, and snapping at other customers for sitting too near the fire exit when they had previously been told to sit anywhere they liked. Many people agreed that we all felt very uncomfortable and unwelcome. I certainly will not be returning after my last experience, and will be advising everyone else to give the venue a wide berth.
