“Panto Season”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Venue is good and if sitting in front seats you don't strain your neck as you might at the Edinburgh Playhouse. As with all theatres nits a pain getting out all at the same time. snacks and drinks are over priced

“uncomfortable seating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Been here numerous times over the years. It's a typical old theatre and the seats really need updating. I'm 5'4 and find it extremely cramped - can't imagine how anyone taller sits though a performance!

“Great night.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Went to see Harry Hills show here and the theatre itself is a lovely traditional building. We had an issue receiving tickets from a large ticket selling chain but the staff were really helpful and provided duplicates without issue (although make sure you have proper receipts of purchase etc). The seats are a little cramped and, although Im only 5 ft 9, the upper circle seats were quite cramped.

Great night and great show.

“Overpriced!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Had a seat at the back row of the stalls. Not a good place, uncomfortable and drafty! Drinks are overpriced, take your own water.
