Arrive Early

Arrive early for the bar if going to a show but otherwise fine with cheerful staff. Great show with Rich Hall , seats ok for a couple of hours but not much more.

We went to see the excellent "The Underground Man" last night. We're not regulars, we've only been once before (1984, last year - brilliant!!), but this time we were in the small Neville Theatre upstairs, so we were really close to the actors. Although this did cause me some problems with seeing what was going on, I don't feel I... More

We've been here several times and always have a great time, To be fair,it is rarely sold out so we generally are able to move seats so that we have plenty of room to spread out! Also buy cheaper seats and move to better ones if you can is a good trick! Nice bar and outdoor seating area compliments the... More

Visited mid September whilst on business in Nottingham. Booked over the phone and picked my ticket up when I arrived pre-performance, as the online booking system was a bit long winded. With it being a hot day, the outdoor seating area is great for pre-theatre drinks, love the public art. The theatre was a wee bit warm, but the performance... More

Overall a good little theatre. Easy to find, parking but walkable from town. Would have given it 5 stars but the seats were not that comfortable, and the air conditioning could have been colder/more as it was a little hot towards the end. We'd return happily.

Came here to see a matinee show, the seats were uncomfortable, to say you are sat in them for around 2 hours in total, you can get comfortable as you are sat upright and so close to the person next to you, not great if you don't know them, the leg room is next to nothing and not advisable for...

Decent food, good value plus friendly service. We were able to sit outside as it was a sunny day in Nottingham and enjoy the Sky Mirror while we ate.

I went to see a show here earlier this year. Great bar within the playhouse so grab a drinks before you show. Sound system good but need better aircon

On our first visit, to see the lovely Mary Chapin Carpenter, we experienced 2 for the price of one: a great show (especially from openers Applewood Road) combined with an unexpected sauna!! Granted it was a very hot day (30C) and we were told the aircon was on but the circle became like the Black Hole of Calcutta!! I have... More
