A very atmospheric and moving production of 'The Cherry Orchard', especially the first half which was done to perfection. Both the tragic and the comic elements of the play were enacted well without jarring. The acting was convincing and at times incredibly moving. A couple...More

I have attended numerous shows at this venue, there are comfortable seating and great views wherever your seated. Friendly staff always keep events running smoothly & there is an excellent if a little pricey cafe bar attached to the venue.

Booked many times at this venue and have never been disappointed. Seen Alan Rickman, Helena Bonham-Carter, John Gordon Sinclair amongst many others. Great place - very welcoming - nice food too. Highly recommended as a theatre space. Great for Shakespeare and the classics!
