“Comfortable, friendly and intimate”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had a fun evening seeing Neil J Duncan at this cosy theatre (seats 182). He was a brilliant Elvis tribute act.
The staff were welcoming and the seats in the balcony were comfortable. The bar area was a good size and we were allowed to take drinks to our seats.
There is a public car park behind the venue, and buses stop at the door.
I have never been to this theatre before, but I will certainly go again. Highly recommended.

“Closer”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

My first visit to The Playhouse, what a delighful venue for some AM DRAM. The venue is charming and all the staff made it a very pleasureable evening. Programmes were free and the play was extraordinary, some real freedom of speech was not for the faint hearted, played by four dynamic and enthralling actors/esses, many thanks a great evening. The bar was reasonably priced and if you pop your bar mat on your drink it will still be there at the next interval.
