Have visited here many times recently as the National Theatre live streaming events have been shown. Very enjoyable with comfortable seats with ample leg room and hand rails to assist getting up and down to the seats. Needed for my elderly mother! The bar is open for performance nights and helpful staff on hand to assist in any way.

In all the years the theatre has been open it is only in the last five years or so that the quality of the acts who have appeared there has risen ten fold if not more! I consider myself a regular user of the theatre,especially as it's only 100 yards from where my I live and have met many of... More

We took our two grand daughters for a wee lunchtime treat, and as always the food was excellent and served with a smile, but what surprised me the most was the patience the staff had with two excited girls thank you! The food is always reasonably priced, highly recommend the waffles and ice cream for desert delicious.!!

The kid's Santa sleepover show. Professional, friendly staff. Nothing a problem for them. Nice venue for a show. Had a fire alarm in mid show, well trained staff ensured no panicking. Will be back at some point for more entertainment.

My wife and I attended the Brunton theatre last night to see Arrival - in our view, the best Abba tribute band there is. A slick visual and musical production provided by excellent, talented and hard working musicians made this a very special event indeed. Thank you Arrival for yet another memorable concert. Superb!

I recently came to see Jack and the Bean Stalk here with my 4 year old boy. The service was brilliant from the minute I walked in the door right up until I walked out again! I'm very local and have been coming here for years, I would recommend this place to anyone.
