Having wandered around Newbury on a beautiful hot afternoon, I didnt want to return early to my accommodation so explored the outskirts, intrigued by the signs to The Watermill Theatre.
The route there takes you out to countryside to a pretty hamlet with a pub and delightful "village streamside green". The Watermill and its adjoining buildings is quaint and interesting. I accidentally entered via the restaurant which was absolutely packed to the rafters with pre-show diners attending the Laurel and Hardy performance, directed by Craig Revell Hoarwood (who I bumped into in the garden!) The cafe was quiet and I was served by an impeccably dressed young black man who was charm itself. I got the impression the whole place was a wonderful place to both work and visit from all the staff I spoke to. I would love to return and do the whole experience. Worlds away from the other customer experience I have recently described!!! Well done Watermill....I will see you again!
