Myself, my husband and our friends recently attended Mary Poppins. The show was absolutely amazing but the staff at the bar during the interval were absolutely horrendous. One woman in particular named Charlotte was very rude, the way she spoke to the other two members of staff was disgusting, she constantly patronised and embarrassed them in front of myself and...

Fantastic show, magical, great value for money. Saying more would need spoiler alert. Was sat at the back of the upper circle, very low narrow seats & I'm quite small.

Cafe gone massively downhill, thanks to insane management ruining the menu. Food is now pre- made sandwiches with ridiculous fillings such as smoked salmon or good old Wensleydale cheese which is smothered in nasty onion goo. No more jacket potatoes, which were excellent. So turned up at theatre for Mary Poppins expecting to have my usual jacket with cheese only... More

The show and dinner beforehand were both excellent - the level of service for staff in the restaurant was superb and really added to a welcoming atmosphere. I also have to complement another individual. We saw the Thursday showing of Mary Poppins which included a sign language presentation at the left side of the stage. We were sat in the... More

I enjoy taking trips to the Theatre in London. Alhambra is as good as the best. I've never seen a bad show and many of the top shows come to the Alhambra.

Went to see Mary Poppins with my 3 Granddaughters, Excellent show. Mary Poppins was fabulous. Prior to the show we all went in the circle Bar & Cafe which was huge disappointment. The staff were very unhelpful and uninterested. They did not have a children's menu, the sandwiches etc that we purchased were stale. Best to dine out prior to... More

Went to see Mary Poppins and it was magnificent...by the end of it you were back to your childhood. The effects and the whole production was superb. Thank you Alhambra for a magnificent evening and having a meal in the 1914 restaurant just made it a night to remember
